Here was a column written by OSEN’s reporter that day. The reporter analyzed the background that SBS gave Ji Suk-jin the ‘Honorary Employee Award’, which is also a rare name, instead of the grand prize.

The reporter said, “Especially, the ‘Honorary Employee Award’ in the list of awards on this day made viewers tilt their heads. It is ambiguous to give the grand prize and the grand prize by creating an ‘employee prize’, and I am sorry to send it back empty-handed, so it raises questions about whether it is given in a way that matches the assortment.”

He continued, “I have to take care of one award, and the co-winner is noticing, so it was probably the ‘Honorary Employee Award’. Although it gave meaning to the award of ‘Miu Bird (My Little Old Boy)’ by saying it was ‘the first team grand prize’, it seems that the ‘Team Grand Prize’ was awarded to ‘Miu Bird’, which is a good player in viewership, because there was no outstanding performance in the first lecture this year.” He added.
