Lee Jong Suk won “Grand Prize (Daesang)” at the “2022 MBC Drama Awards” held at MBC Media Center in Sangam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul from 8:30 PM on Dec 30th. He attracted attention due to his acceptance speech, “I received Daesang for the first time six years ago when I was in my 20s. At that time, I didn’t know the meaning of this award well. I greeted you all with a comeback work after a long time in my 30s. Thank you for giving me so much love. Before appearing in ‘Big Mouth’, I had many worries, fears, and distress after completing military service. At that time, a person led me in a good direction. I really want to take this opportunity to convey what I want to tell that person. Thank you for always being so cool like that. I want to say that I’ve liked you for a very long time and I respect you a lot. Every time I look at that friend, I always think, ‘I should have worked harder, and been a better person’. I reflected a lot on my past days. I will try to improve myself in the future.“
