Lee Seung Gi, Lee Da Hee, and Sung Si Kyung Host the 2022 Golden Disc Awards with Many Acting Stars in Attendance as Singer-Actress IU Wins Best Song

Too bad COVID-19 protocols meant they were never on the same stage or got the hand trophy hug but my Man Wol-Chung Myung heart was still full. Singer-actor Lee Seung Gi hosted the ceremony along with actress Lee Da Hee and singer Sung Si Kyung, and in attendance to present awards were a bevy of actors and actresses including Jung Woo Sung, Ahn Hyo Seob, Jeon So Min, Woo Do Hwan, Koo Kyo Hwan, and Jeon Jong Seo.
