The award is given to the artist who led and influenced fashion trends the most in the past year in Korea.

“I think this award will make more people look forward to my career. I promise to work harder,” he said at the award ceremony held at Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Seoul. “Whenever I stood here, I used to dedicate the award to others, but this time, I would like to dedicate it to myself, someone who worked hard and who will work harder. Thank you!”
