KBS, 강호동 없는 '1박 2일'팀에 연예대상… 왜?
The cast of KBS show “1 Night, 2 Days” won the grand prize at the 2011 KBS Entertainment Awards on Saturday, becoming the first group recipient of the award.

Also at the awards ceremony, Kim Joon-ho and Jung Kyung-mi from the show “Gag Concert” won the Best Variety Show Award.
