On Saturday, December 17, KST, the SBS Entertainment Awards took place, honoring the best entertainers that the network has to offer.
The cast of the variety show Running Man won big throughout the night, including Yook Jae Suk winning the “Grand Prize”, and he and Kim Jong Kook winning “Best Couple.” The entire Running Man cast as a whole were also awarded “Program of the Year!”
While these are amazing wins, fans have been focused on another moment between Song Ji Hyo And Kim Jong Kook that happened before the show even started during the red carpet event!
Numerous stars walked the red carpet for the event, including FC Ballad Dream, from the television program “Kick A Goal,” Jang Do Yeon, and Lee Hyun Yi.
The Running Man cast also walked the red carpet as five as Haha and Yang Se Chan tested positive for COVID-19. While the whole cast looked impressive, all eyes were drawn to Song Ji Hyo, who wore a gorgeous sparkling gown.
When asked who was the best dressed among the five of them the cast resoundingly declared that it was Song Ji Hyo, with Jee Seok Jin stating that “her outfit was hard for others to follow” and that she looked like the “main character from a Marvel film.”
The compliments for her didn’t stop there as the cast were asked to give a message to the person standing to their right. Kim Jong Kook delivered a cool and sweet message to Song Ji Hyo that has fans fawning.
Kim Jong Kook: Jihyo… She’s a giant. She’s so tall today!
Song Ji Hyo: He keeps calling me a giant!
Kim Jong Kook: She surprised me. We rarely see this eye-to-eye. Height-wise, that is. Anyway, she’s the best dresser tonight. She’s very pretty.
