Song Hye-kyo received the Best Actress trophy at the 59th Baeksang Arts Awards for her performance in The Glory.
Korean actress Song Hye-kyo is currently enjoying the success of her tragic revenge drama “The Glory,” which won three honors at the prestigious 59th Baeksang Arts Awards. But what stole the show was her emotional yet hilarious speech when accepting the award. The actress played the character of Moon Dong Eun, who was brutally bullied and tortured by her elite classmates at school. Song Hye-kyo thanked the whole team of The Glory for working tirelessly to make the K-drama a huge success. From the production team to the cast members, the actress left no one behind while expressing her gratitude.
But the main emotional highlight came when the actress thanked her mother. Song Hye Kyo revealed that her mother was worried about her well-being. However, she thinks that after seeing her win big at the Baeksang Arts Awards, it might help reassure her mother. “I think my mother will be happy after a long time. You always worried a lot about me, but I hope you feel comfortable and happy today,” she said.

The actress began her acceptance speech with a joke directed at her co-star Lim Ji Yoon, which immediately had the crowd bursting into laughter. For those who don’t know, Lim Ji Yoon played Park Yeon Jin, who was from a privileged family and was the main perpetrator behind all the bullying that traumatized Moon Dong Eun. In a harmless jibe, she started the speech by stating, “I received a Yeon Jin-ah award. I’m excited now. When the camera turned to Lim Ji Yoon, she was seen laughing while cheering and applauding Song Hye Kyo.
“I wanted to say it one last time. I really wanted this award. Thanks for giving it to me,” the actress continued.
Notably, actress Lim Ji Yoon also took home the Best Supporting Actress award, while The Glory team also took home the Best Drama award.
The 59th Baeksang Arts Awards was held in the luxurious Paradise City of Incheon with Park Bo Gum, Suzy and Shin Dong Yup hosting the ceremony.
