Lee Do-hyun said, “Honestly, I think it happened so unexpectedly, and I didn’t expect it at all. SinceI was nominated for the Excellence Award, I couldn’t do anything other than expect myself to be that one. I also prepared an acrostic poem for my acceptance speech.”

Lee Do-hyun continued, “My mother has worked as a newspaper deliveryman for a long time, so I hope my mother, father, and younger brother could take a break from work and just live on the money I earn. If I could bring them a life like that, I would feel more comfortable even when I enlist in the military”.
