Here’s the full translations on Yoo Ah In’s speech~
“Thank you. This is a best acting award, but I’m not sure whether I’ve already shown the best acting yet. I was nominated together with outstanding senior actors and I don’t think you are giving me this award because I’m the best.
“To me, being able to participate in the 50 episodes of ‘Six Flying Dragons’ itself, is a big challenge. And even though I’m not fully happy [note: perhaps because he is not fully satisfied with the characterization of Bang Won], I’m still willing to learn a lot more.
“Today in this occasion, I’m sitting together around one table with my friends Byun Yo Han, Shin Se Kyung, Yoon Kyun Sang, and “Gil Tae Mi” Park Hyuk Kwon sunbae. I feel so happy being together with these very passionate young friends. Before coming here, I thought, ‘I will give my friends my sincere congrats [for winning the award] exactly on the spot, so I have to attend the ceremony’. It’s a sweet burden, yet congratulations, my friends.
“I’m not sure about this, but this trophy bears plaques. A lot of ambitions and competing for power stick together. But our job as an actor, the moment the camera roles, is to give the purest acting. I think it’s when we are turning to a sly fox or a monster at the moment.
“There are many times I stopped walking to ask myself, what is a good actor and what is the standard of a high quality acting? And while I’m silently walking, I will stop and stop again to think back about it.
“Today, I feel the two hours of happiness. To the audience who have been supporting ‘Six Flying Dragons’, as well as my colleagues and my family, I would like to send my sincere thanks.

4. [+1080, -45] I think all actors should learn from Yoo Ah In’s style of award speech.

5. [+190, -12] I liked his award speech. It wasn’t the standard “thank you to this person, this person, this person” which is so boring.

1. [+21786, -1283] That gesture is only Yoo Ah In’s honest style of award speech, I don’t know what’s the problem with that. In fact, it looked endearing when he underlined his statement. People in our country seems too crazy over politeness and humility. His speech is rich in emotion. Usually, people like him have a great literacy skills…
2. [+16398, -645] That was a top notched acting ㅋㅋ It was really deep when he said he was worried about his acting skill ㅎㅎ Please come to Win Win. (Note: Win Win is a KBS talk show, no longer airing)

3. [+7552, -674] Jo Tae Oh’s acting.
4. [+6850, -839] I feel that the award was given to a truly wonderful person. Happy new year, everyone.
5. [+6494, -545] I’ve observed that a celebrity, who has a good writing skills, usually have a very deep thought. It’s alright, Hongsik, you deserves the award.
