Kang Ho Dong is Best Entertainer on KBS again!
Famous MC Kang Ho Dong has hit gold again at this year's KBS Entertainment Awards.
Last year was an all time high for the plus size MC when he received the Best Entertainer award, but he has managed to hold on onto his crown this year!
Although he had to compete with long-time friend/colleague/heavyweight (no pun intended) Yoo Jae Suk, Kang Ho Dong pulled through with his role in "1 Night 2 Days."
In his acceptance speech, Kang Ho Dong apologized to his close friend Yoo Jae Suk and also thanked his mentor Lee Gyung Gyu. "It was 15 years ago. Lee Gyung Gyu said, 'I'm going to take responsibility for your shows. If you fail, I fail.'"
Kang Ho Dong has been all over the place this year, MC'ing for shows such as "Strong Heart" on SBS and "Golden Fishery" on MBC and this might be the first of many as we count down the year in the next couple of days.
Just like any major event in Korea, k-pop was a must have at the awards.
Invincible Youth group G7 performed a song while idol groups like 2PM and Brown Eyed Girls also added color to the ceremony with their own hit tracks.
