Jang Yoon Jung Apologizes for the Noisy Year at the 2013 SBS Entertainment AwardsAt the 2013 SBS Entertainment Awards on December 30, hosted by Shin Dong Yeop, Kim Won Hee, and Krystal (f(x)), Lee Hwi Jae and Jang Yoon Jung were awarded the ‘Best Couple’ award for their five-years together hosting “1000 Song Challenge.”

Lee Hwi Jae was unable to attend due to another schedule, so Jang Yoon Jung accepted the award on his behalf, as well.

She said, “I’m apologetic for having been the one to receive this award in the midst of some fantastic couples. 2013 was quite an eventful year for me. I got married to the person that I love, and we’ve been blessed with the miracle of a child, too.”

She continued, tearing up, “There were some harsh times too, and it may not be appropriate for the atmosphere here, but I’d like to apologize for all the noisy talk involving me,” referring to the legal battle with her anti-blogger and conflict with her mother.

“‘1000 Song Challenge’ is a 10-year long program. I will never forget the production crew for giving me the opportunity to be with the show for over half of that time. I will have to step down in order to have my baby, but until my last show, I will give my absolute best. Lee Hwi Jae said he was sorry for making me go alone.” She joked, “He said he wishes for his next partner to be absolutely glamorous, so it would be nice if the production team would take that into consideration.”

Suzy’s slip of the tongue came while she was explaining how to vote. Forgetting her lines, she uttered to herself, “Oh, what’s that?” in informal speech, causing the audience to burst into laughter.

MC Lee Hwi Jae made a quick save, teasingly saying, “Are you imitating Lee Joo Il-seon saeng nim? What a multi-talented entertainer. Doing a ‘What’s that?’ imitation in the middle of a live broadcast.”

Suzy was briefly flustered by her mistake but she regained her composure and finished her part after Lee Hwi Jae’s quips and the laughter died down.

Yoon Shi Yoon showed his nerves when he accidentally introduced the “Super Big Match” battle as “Big Mac,” causing Lee Hwi Jae to explode with laughter.

Lee Hwi Jae set things right, saying, “Big Mac is a hamburger. It is Big Match.” It added that it was ok to make mistakes since it was a live broadcast, adding that, “You just have to apologize.” His natural talkativeness helped to relax Yoon Shi Yoon, and the actor was able to continue with his emceeing.

Girls’ Generation, SHINee, EXO, Lee Hyori, IU, Infinite, BEAST, 2PM, miss A, 4Minute, Kara, Sistar, K. Will, B1A4, A Pink, Girl’s Day, Ailee, Secret, Dynamic Duo, Heo Gak, Lee Seung Chul, Yoo Hee Yeol, and Crayon Pop graced the stage with their performances at the “2013 KBS Music Festival (KBS Gayo Daejun).
