The ’22nd Seoul Music Awards‘ were recently held on January 31st, and many top stars, idol groups, and musicians were recognized for their outstanding achievements as they gathered at the Olympic Park in Seoul.
Super Junior were one of the artists that landed themselves a main prize, the Bonsang, and went on to also receive the ‘Hallyu Special Award’.
A video of the group receiving the award was posted on to YouTube, and many amused fans noted that after Kyuhyun gave his speech, Yesung leaned forward to add a few words but was immediately cut by the cue for background music. The other members also noticed and began laughing.
What was most notable was that when Kyuhyun was giving his speech, he included a ‘thank you’ for fans in 10 different languages, shocking fans at his cultural awareness!
He gave a shout-out of gratitude to international fans fans in English, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, German, Italian, Indonesian/Malay, French, and Korean! D.O and Sehun of EXO-K were also caught on camera, impressed as they clapped their sunbae on. Shindong and Ryeowook are seen in the background of the camera shot, grinning and face-palming.
Watch their acceptance speech below! Kyuhyun’s note of thanks begins at the 0:46 mark.
