The South Korean heartthrob can’t hide how proud he is for his onscreen brother, who took the stage as he accepted his Best Supporting Actor award at the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards.
It came after the 44-year-old actor was hailed as the winner for his impeccable performance in the smash-hit Korean drama “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.”
He played the role of the mentally challenged Moon Sang Tae, alongside Kim Soo Hyun who portrays the younger brother, Moon Gang Tae, and the female protagonist Ko Moon Young, played by Seo Ye Ji.
At the ceremony, the two-time Baeksang Arts winner delivered a heartfelt speech as he thanked everyone who recognized his skill as an actor.
Moreover, he mentioned that he was overwhelmed by praise and appreciation, which made him wonder if he is “worthy of receiving such love.”
In addition, the “Good Detective” star shared that he is “grateful to the people” who supported and helped him in the areas that he lacks.
Oh Jung Se concluded his acceptance speech with an endearing message to his co-star Kim Soo Hyun.
“Thank you, my beloved younger brother, Moon Gang Tae. My heart was overwhelmed just by looking at your eyes,” he mentioned, adding, “And thank you, writer Ko Moon Young.”
Surprisingly, his speech did not just make the viewers cry but made the 33-year-old actor emotional after a camera panned over to the A-lister who was seen tearing up while listening to Oh Jung Se’s message.
