Actor Nam Goong Min won the grand prize at the '2020 SBS Drama Awards' for his role in the drama 'Hot Stove League.'
Nam Goong Min delivered his acceptance speech saying, "I'm happy to receive such an award at SBS, which was the first broadcast station company where I was cast in my first permanent drama. Every one of the 'Hot Stove League' is precious to me; I'm thankful to all the actors and staff. This drama was the most perfect drama I've done."
He continued to say, "when I first received the script, I was really curious about how the format would be since it was a baseball drama. I cannot forget the eyes of writer Lee Shin Hwa who I met after reading all the script. She gave me ten answers to one question I asked. I remember thinking about how I could pull off the character on my way home."
He concluded by saying, "The drama 'Hot Stove League' became a good drama despite the writer's doubts, and we even received such a great award, so in my opinion, she is the best writer."
