Yoo Jae-suk, who is known as the ‘MC of the Nation’ won another Grand Prize at the “The MBC Entertainment Awards” on Thursday.

Yoo had received 13 Grand Prizes from the big three networks -- MBC, KBS, and SBS.

In 2015, he was awarded three Grand Prizes -- one from MBC for “Infinite Challenge,” another from SBS for “Same Bed, Different Dreams,” and the third from KBS for “Running Man.”

With the viewer ratings for his shows “Happy Together” and “Running Man” dwindling this year, there were doubts over whether he would receive the award during Thursday’s ceremony.

“Thank you very much. But as I receive more awards, I also feel more sorry,” Yoo said at the acceptance speech.

Yoo gave his condolences to Jeong Jun-ha, who was one of the nominees.

He thanked his family, his agency‘s family, and everyone involved with “Infinite Challenge.”

Yoo said he hoped to work with his former co-hosts, who left the show earlier this year, again.

“Infinite challenge” is MBC’s leading variety show which has been running for 12 years.
