Lee Young-ja is the first woman to win grand prize at KBS Entertainment Awards

On December 22 at the 2018 KBS Entertainment Awards, comedian Lee Young-ja was given the Grand Prize award for the night. While any entertainer would be pleased with such an honor, for Lee and women in entertainment, it was a first.

In particular, this was the first time that Lee has gotten the prize in her 27 years in the industry. In addition to that, she is also the very first woman to in the history of the KBS Entertainment Awards to received the honor.

When named the recipient, Lee said that “there are so many people who thanked me for being funny, and I was touched and grateful.” Like those who thanked her, the comedian also mentioned the people in the industry who have helped her along the way including Shin Dong-yeop and Jung Chan-woo.

She's been around for so long! And she's been killing it on Omniscient Interfering View since the pilot.
