Kim Junsu said, “Firstly, I want to say thank you for giving me such a precious award. I feel that the passion and strength that is put in by the actors and staff for the sake of the audiences, is the strength of a musical, and that is the greatest charm we want to show in every performance.”
Following which, he said, “After last year, I want to express my gratitude for being able to appear again, and to receive an award this year.”
Kim Junsu also said, “I’m not sure when it started, but despite having objective numerical evidence, we were unable to get a fair review, and to suffer from this was something that made me very sad. To be able to stand here today bears great meaning. To all the audiences and fans who laughed with me, and cried with me through every single performance, thank you,” ending his acceptance speech.
