While Ryeowook was unable to accept his award personally due to a performance with Super Junior – K.R.Y at Hong Kong, Super Junior leader Leeteuk who is also the first ‘Kiss The Radio’ host accepted the award for him.
Leeteuk also congratulated him by saying, “Ryeowook, congrats! After nine years, you have received an award! The most regretful thing during your active year was that, even after five years of doing radio, you have never once received an award. But now, it is a bit of relief. You did great and worked hard!”
Ryeowook then took to Twitter to share his thank-you speech. He writes, “Thank you very much!^^ This was made possible thanks to everyone who listened and participated in ‘Kiss The Radio’ every day. Thank you to all of the listeners~ Our producers and writers have all worked hard. I am always thankful to the Super Junior members, Henry and Zhou Mi. I love you guys~ Thanks for my mom and dad who listens every day. I love you!”
He also adds, “I came to Hong Kong this morning, finished the K.R.Y concert and now heading back to Korea. This was the first time that my name came up at the KBS Entertainment Awards, so it is very unfamiliar to me. But, I am happy~ I’ll work even hard. I’ll share this award with our fixed guests! Thank you all ^^ Let us have an office dinner, ‘Kiss The Radio.’”
