Actor Jung Woo Jung showed up to receive the award on behalf of his best friend Lee Jung Jae, who couldn’t attend the award ceremony due to his overseas filming schedule for the drama “Star Wars”.

Taking the stage, Jung Woo Sung said, “I was not even nominated, but why is my heart beating so fast?”, then burst into laughter.

He continued, “I will say it (Lee Jung Jae’s acceptance speech) well. I’m glad to have such a good memory of being able to deliver an award to my friend”, adding “I’ll call him right now. He’s probably filming in England, so I don’t know if he would pick up my phone or not”.

Jung Woo Sung took out his phone and call Lee Jung Jae right on the stage. Later, he turned up the speaker of his phone to let everyone hear the voice of Lee Jung Jae, who was in England.
