One Rookie Actor’s Adorably Panic-Filled Acceptance Speech At The “57th Baeksang Arts Awards” Is Cracking Up The Internet

He made his sunbaes Song Joong Ki and Shin Hye Sun burst into laughter too!

At the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards, rookie actor Hong Kyung won the Best New Actor award for his convincing portrayal of the younger brother with autism in the K-Movie Innocence.

During his acceptance speech, Hong Kyung became overwhelmed with so many emotions — one being sheer panic at the unexpected victory. As his voice began trembling and his speech getting entirely flustered…

… his co-star, and female lead of Innocence, actress Shin Hye Sun couldn’t help but giggle.

The… The lighting director… Oh gosh, what was his name again…? I, uh, I seriously can’t think of it right now, I’m so sorry. I don’t remember. I will call you all individually. I’m sorry…!

— Hong Kyung

Even though he tried to pull himself together, Hong Kyung simply couldn’t deal with all his feelings. At one point, as his voice completely cracked on the brink of bursting into tears, he apologized for being an emotional mess…

… making veteran actress Bae Jong Ok smile too!

Oh, nooo… I really shouldn’t cry because this is being recorded and there will be videos…!

— Hong Kyung

Then, Hong Kyung ended up addressing his stylist as “The same person who does Song Joong Ki sunbae-nim’s hair.” The comment inevitably made the audience crack up, including actor Yoo Ah In

…and even Song Joong Ki himself.

Oh no…! What— I can’t remember the styling team leader’s name now… Ugh…! I don’t remember, I’m sorry. But it’s the same person who does Song Joong Ki sunbae-nim‘s hair. I’m so sorry I don’t remember…!

Wrapping up, Hong Kyung made sure to thank his supportive family, which included his parents, his sibling, his grandmother, and — last but not least — his three dogs!

I have three dogs, by the way. Woni, Coco, and Leonardo DiCaprio. Thank you guys.

— Hong Kyung

When JTBC released the full clip of Hong Kyung’s speech, Koreans became obsessed with how absolutely adorable the rookie actor is.

Hong Kyung debuted in 2017, with a KBS K-Drama. The movie Innocence marks the beginning of his career for the big screen though. And now, he has many new fans who look forward to seeing more of his not-so-panic-filled acting soon!
