Style Icon Awards

I find these awards intriguing… just look at the award names! ^^; The executive committee seems pretty diverse, though I wonder if everyone of them had a say in every category.

And now, presenting the 2011, 2010 AND 2009 Style Icon Awards!

“I met a good project this year, and because of that I received a lot of love, such that I can receive 2 wonderful awards here. It feels great. Whether I’m worthy of receiving these awards in 2011, or whether I’m showing all of you sensible stylishness, I don’t know, but I’m a person whose style is about ‘living with determination’. I’m good-looking right?”

    Got to love Tiger JK’s speech. Very charming and sweet. So JiSub needs to slim down a bit.
    Hyun Joong looks like a noble prince there. I thought he won last year also, right???
