The comedian gave her acceptance speech saying, "I'm really honored to receive this award. I thank my father in Busan, my mother in heaven, and my sisters. I also want to give this honor to everyone who is suffering from the COVID19, the medical staff who are working hard. I hope to create an entertainment show that can bring even a little laughter to everyone."
'Two Days and One Night Season 4' received the award for the 'Best Program Selected by Viewers.' The show's producer thanked everyone, including the cast members and the staff who worked hard to achieve this award.
