Everyone's a winner at the MBC Entertainment Awards
The Dec. 29 event, hosted by the Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation, took place at the MBC Dream Center in Ilsan, Gyeonggi. Singer Yoon Jong-shin and actress Park Ha-sun hosted the event.
The award for best entertainment work went to the singing survival show "I am a Singer," quite a feat for the show, which faced a lot of uncertainty at its premiere in March. The contest program broke the mold by featuring less-popular and older singers in a primetime slot.
"Three Wheels" was picked as the best variety show, while out of the comedy programs, sitcom "High Kick: The Revenge of the Short-legged" was selected for top honors.
Folk song performance group Cecibong Friends received a lifetime achievement award. The group recently appeared on an episode of the program "Yoo Jae-Seok, Kim Won-hee's Come To Play."
A special award for singers was also presented to the boy band Super Junior.
