    Gong Yoo speech on 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards 2017. - Such a pure heart full of gratitude.
    He won the Top Excellence, Actor (The Lonely Shining Goblin)

    Hello everyone, my name is 'Gong Yoo', nice to meet you.
    First, oh also, some may call me 'Gong Ji Chul', I especially want to say my real name today. A Few months ago, I was still the lonely and great God, but I'm now back to being a very weak ordinary man.
    I wanna thank writer 'Kim Eun Sook' who has kept interest in me for a long time, director 'Lee Eung Bok' who helped me become 'Kim Shin' with a sword on his chest, and Eun Tak who loved the lonely 'Kim Shin' so much. And to the staff, the times I spent with you shined.
    A lot of things happened last year. Experienced having feelings I shouldn't have to a woman, fought with zombies and fought for the sake of the motherland. I've been through a lot the past 2 years.
    So I've been confused lately, I wonder, Where I am? Who am I? Where am I going?
    This award to me is a reminder not to be too fragile and stop hesitating. So I sincerely thank all of you who loved "Goblin" and also to everyone who has been with my journey the past 2 years.
    My mom said i'm not her child anymore. I wanna say sorry and I hope you're both healthy, Mom and Dad. To my manager, you've been through a lot because of me, I feel sorry but look I got an award!
    I wish you all happiness. I hope to look back on my experiences as an actor not as distress but an encouragement. Thank You
    .

    "I do not know how long this lucky can last, so heavy trophy how can I bear, but in the future I will continue," he said, "Trying to create a hearty, interesting work, to become a good actor, I now probably stand in the highest position in my life"
