MBC Entertainment Awards, where Seol Min-seok cheered for Cho In-sung and went to and from the cold and hot bath.
The MBC Entertainment Awards, which drew attention due to various issues, is receiving a lot of responses between cold and hot bath.
At 8:45 p.m. on the 29th, the “2020 MBC Broadcast Entertainment Awards” (hereinafter referred to as MBC Entertainment Awards), which will be completed this year, was held live. The broadcast proved the hot topic of conversation, with the highest ratings of the Grand Prize scenes soaring to 10.1 percent (Nielsen Korea’s national standard).
The grand prize of honor was won by Yoo Jae-seok, who played as a colorful sub-character this year through “What Do You Do When You Play?” It is the 16th award in his personal career and the record of winning seven awards at MBC’s first entertainment award.
Also, actor Jo In-sung made a surprise appearance as the grand prize winner, drawing surprise from viewers. “I was comforted by MBC entertainment this year,” Jo In-sung said. “I was able to say hello to the viewers who were tired of Corona 19. I was able to laugh thanks to entertainers in difficult times, so I came out to say thank you and congratulate them together.
After hearing Park Na-rae’s sudden offer to appear in “I Live Alone” and “Save Me Homes” and Jeon Hyun-moo’s “Point of Omniscient Interfere,” he said humorously, “I Live With My Parents” and “Let’s meet when I am independent or sell my house.”
On the other hand, there were some regrets. This is because Seol Min-seok, who acknowledged plagiarism in his thesis and declared a halt to broadcasting activities, appeared several times without editing in the first half of the awards ceremony.
Seol Min-seok appeared in a VCR video announcing the winner of the “Entertainer of the Year” award, which is a candidate for the grand prize, and continued to appear in the latter half of the awards ceremony. It was because it was not easy to edit the introductory video that had already been prepared because it was not long after the controversy over Seol Min-seok erupted. Seol Min-seok was even nominated for the best prize in the variety category for ‘Returns of the Crossing Line.’ The video of the candidate’s introduction was also broadcast, drawing sighs from viewers who were exposed to the controversy.
The production team eventually explained the situation in which editing was inevitable, saying, “The production team of “2020 MBC Broadcasting Entertainment Awards” confirmed Seol Min-seok’s controversy through an article at a time when the live broadcast is imminent.” “The video of Seol Min-seok’s introduction to the grand prize candidate was completed in advance, and due to the nature of the live broadcast, it was difficult to prepare for it, such as replacing it with another video, so the VCR starring Seol Min-seok inevitably went on the air. We ask for your understanding.
Seol Min-seok was suspected of plagiarizing his master’s thesis after being embroiled in a controversy over his distorted history. “I will acknowledge plagiarism and stop broadcasting,” he said, and tvN’s production team of “Seol Min-seok’s naked world history” made it official to leave Seol Min-seok. Since then, MBC’s “Returns of Those Across the Line” is also expected to officially drop out.
Meanwhile, at the MBC Entertainment Awards, Lee Hyo-ri, who was absent after much consideration due to the Corona 19 situation, won the best prize in the music & talk category. He made a surprise appearance in a video clip wearing a quilt dress, which made viewers happy.
In addition, the honor of this year’s entertainment program awards and best couple awards, which were selected by the viewers themselves, is also “What’s the point of playing?””Wow, it went to Ji Mi-yu (Yoo Jae-seok) and Cheon Ok (Lee Hyo-ri). What’s the point of playing?’ was the grand prize of Yoo Jae-seok, the Best Female Music & Talk Award (Lee Hyo-ri), the Best Female Variety Award (Hwasa), the Best Female Music & Talk Award (Eom Jung-hwa, Jesse), the Best Male Music & Talk Award (Kim Jong-min), and the Best Artist of the Year.
