December 24, 2011. KBS Entertainment Awards. 1N2D-Seunggi photo recap…
The look: Traditional classic tuxedo and bowtie. Simple with no fluff. I would’ve liked the jacket lapels to be just a little more narrow to give it a more modern and stylish look. As for the hair, I’m convinced the press photos didn’t do it any justice and it probably looked way better in person. But overall, thank you Cody for no oversize ill-fitted x-large suit. And thank you Hairstylist for avoiding lame old-man ajusshi hair! (Just please don’t screw things up for SBS Gayo Daejun MC Seunggi!!!!)
Pre-Show Red Carpet – Seunggi and the 1N2D guys
Greeting veteran sunbaes – Yoo Jae Suk, Kim Byung Man, Lee Young Ja, others
Enjoying the awards show
Presenting with SNSD Yuri
Aw, Seunggi and Yuri looked so elegant walking in together to present! Watch Yuri fancam (it’s mostly Yuri, but with awesome snippets of Seunggi!) at YT fancam link.
Presenting award to Sugeun with a big hug!
KBS president announces – Daesang Award goes to 1N2D Team!
Um, the photo says it all. EVERYONE was shocked by the award announcement. When’s the last time you saw an award (in any awards show in any country?!) going to a person/group/project that was not one of the previously announced nominees?
I’m happy the 1n2d team won the Daesang. Seunggi looked MOST happy! He probably was like, thank you so much for not giving it to me! I’m just pissed KBS announced nominees beforehand… Whatever! It just made KBS look stupid.
Celebrating the Daesang win together!
Seunggi’s sincere consideration for others is one of the main reasons I admire him so much! Can you believe he is the maknae of the group? The way he always reaches out to the hyungs (and other people!) is just awesome~~~!
Seunggi and Yoona
LOL. Omg, Seunggi is too cute! Yoona totally loves it! I love that they can be cool around each other without it being all scandalous! How can anyone not like either one of them??!! (omg, I have no idea what to anticipate at the SBS Gayo Daejun with the two of them MCing with Song Ji Hyo, who will be like the 3rd wheel!)
Controversy – Win Win Kim Seung Woo on the Daesang nominations
A lot of 1N2D and Seunggi fans were pissed off at Kim Seung Woo (MC for KBS Win Win, rival to SBS Strong Heart) for supposedly going off script during his and Sugeun’s presentation of an award. He asked Sugeun how come he was not included as a Daesang nominee, and then posing to the audience that this made no sense. Some saw this as highly inappropriate for a live awards show. Some said it was disrespectful to Sugeun by rubbing it in more.
Many fans also saw it as an indirect underhanded diss to Seunggi, who was one of the Daesang nominees. The Win Win message board was flooded with comments from 1n2d and Seunggi fans saying they were disappointed in Kim Seung Woo’s behavior, considering it was a live show, and with Sugeun doing this way longer than him. And especially that it reflected poorly on him, seeing a 40-something veteran actor be petty and diss a 20-something Seunggi like that.
Whether Kim Seung Woo was really indirectly dissing Seunggi or not, who knows. But as a firm believer in that “actions speak louder than words” – the few times the 2 guys have met at awards show, I have yet to see him reach out warmly to Seunggi, despite laughing it up with other 1N2D members. And the whole tone of Win Win’s constant bringing up of Strong Heart is just becoming super lame. The Win Win PD won an award and during her speech, she too went on and on about Strong Heart. I really hope they just focus on their own show and improving their own tv ratings!
Now compare that to 40-something MC Yoo Jae Suk – there’s a reason why ALL of Korea loves him and why everyone (including celebs) talk about his consideration and talent for bringing out the best in others. And there’s a reason why people, for a long time, have been saying Seunggi is like the next Yoo Jae Suk!
Daesang nominee Yoo Jae Suk congratulates fellow nominee for the 1N2D win!
Not the exact ending to the beloved 1N2D I was anticipating, but nevertheless, congrats to the 1N2D Team and to Seunggi (and to Mong, Kim C, and Hodong)!
And frankly, I consider it an insult that KBS would call the new show 1N2D Season 2. They should just give the new show a new name! KBS, please don’t taint the reputation of 1N2D like that.
It is IMPOSSIBLE not to like this guy~~~~~~~!!!! Congrats Seunggi!
