First he walked in the red carpet…with a bunny! They also come on stage when he received the award… why? I don’t understand?!!! While there he signed the wall…
Has anyone seen my jaw? I seem to have dropped it somewhere!
Then he went to an office? Maybe a sort of mini Press Conference?
Doesn’t he look dashing! That hand in the pocket… like he is modeling! And these are the photos of him receiving the award:
Yes! I found a video…! You can see them getting their awards…
The female host does not even say his name! And when she tried, the music went on… Big Ooops! Is that actress’ name really “Pancake” ? !
And right after the ceremony, as if Ilwoo’s day was not long enough (I read he arrived to the ceremony at 4:00PM), he did another question and answers session with fans through Weibo! This is the conversation translated via Google.
Surprise for everyone as a memorial to have “Asian Actor Award” today!
