Winners from the ’2012 SBS Entertainment Awards’

Posted: 30 Dec 2012 08:31 AM PST

The ‘2012 SBS Entertainment Awards‘ was held earlier today to celebrate another successful year for SBS.

The big winner tonight was none other than ‘Nation’s MC’ Yoo Jae Suk, who won the coveted Daesang for the second year running for his highly successful Sunday variety program ‘Running Man‘.

“I am truly thankful that I’ve received this award again, but I don’t know how to express it,” he said in a short speech. “The more times I receive it, the more sorry I am.”

“Since I also received a big award earlier today, the Viewer’s Choice Popularity Award, I don’t know what to say. I didn’t even imagine that ‘Running Man’ would receive as much love as it does. I’m thankful to the viewers, cast members, and the producers who stuck with the program when it was on the verge of being cancelled.” he said. “With this in hand, I’ll run even harder. Even though we’re having a tough ratings battle right now [against competitor programs], I think the real competition is the ability to deliver laughs. That’s all I will think about.”

Julien stated, “I’m studying aegyo really hard these days. It’s so difficult. I usually cant [do this], but I practiced for Cherry,” and went on to show her his “cutie player” routine.

Seeing his adorable act, Yoon Se Ah couldn’t help but laugh, which made Julien ask, “It’s not cute?” She explained, “I’m laughing because I’m happy.”

Jung Hye Young opened up about her life as a mother of four and revealed, “The busiest time is 3-5 PM. It’s difficult because all of the children’s returning times are different. Once on a day with heavy snowfall, the Kindergarten shuttle bus couldn’t drive up to our house because it is situated on a hill. Because the arrival times of the three children are different, I go back and forth, I come home later and knock out.”

When asked how she manages her career and family, Jung Hye Young shared, “If I enter a production, my husband will take care of raising the children. On a day like this when we both have to go out, our mother looks after them.”
