Yoo Ah In couldn’t attend the award ceremony due to his “Six Flying Dragons” filming schedule, but he sent an acceptance speech video right from the shooting location. Here’s the video~
In his speech Yoo Ah In said,
“I’m very pleased and honored [to receive this award], my heart feels excited. I feel very grateful for receiving so much love in 2015. I already got a few awards thanks to Sado (The Throne), and I feel happy that I received the first prize through Veteran too. I’m sorry that I’m not able to come because I’m still filming Six Flying Dragons. I heard that people cast the vote directly [to select the winners] too, so I regret more [for not coming]. I wish you all a happy [Lunar] new year 2016. Once again, thank you for giving me the opportunity to prove that I’m worthy of best actor title.”
