YouTube Best UGC & K-Pop Awards 2011

Last week, Google Korea contacted us saying that we were picked as Youtube Best UGC.
They asked if we could attend the award ceremony.
Best UGC? What is that... Is it a popularity award for getting high views?
Anyway, since it was on a weekday, I was going to turn it down,
but since it could be a once in a life time award, I decided to go.

We were going to go without preparing much, but since it was an award ceremony....
We dressed up... Yerin and the whole family went to the ceremony.

When we arrived at the Google office, Yerin was a super star there! ^^;
There were many employees who came by to see Yerin for themselves, and we were really happy.

But... I thought the ceremony would be small and intimate in some meeting room,
but... There were so many reporters...
And in front of me stood Super Junior's Leeteuk, 2NE1, and 4Minute's Hyuna.

Turns out, the ceremony was during the same time as the Youtube K-Pop Awards.
Right before getting the award, for the first time in my life,
we interviewed with SBS, and later we even interviewed with a newspaper reporter.
Next day, there was a newspaper article~

지난 주에 구글 코리아에서 유투브 Best UGC 에 선정되었다고 연락이 왔습니다.
시상식에 참석할 수 있는지 알려달라고 하더군요.
Best UGC? 그게 뭐지.. 조회수가 높아서 받는 인기상인가?
아무튼 평일이라 거절하려다가, 이 때 아니면 언제 상받겠냐는 심정으로 나갔습니다.

대충 하고 갈려다가, 그래도 명색이 시상식인데..
차려입고.. 예린이하고 온가족이 출동했습니다.

구글 사무실에 도착했는데,
이곳에서는 예린이가 인기스타네요^^;
예린이 직접 보려고 많은 직원분들이 오셔서 너무 기분이 좋았습니다.

그런데, 저는 시상식을 사무실에서 조촐하게 할 줄 알았는데,
신문 방송 기자들만 수십명이 와있고..
바로 제 앞에 수퍼주니어의 이특, 2NE1, 포미닛의 현아가 있네요..

알고보니, YouTube K-Pop Awards 시상식하고 같이 하는 것이었습니다.
시상식전에 난생 처음으로 SBS 카메라 인터뷰도 하고,
나중에 신문기자 인터뷰도 했습니다.
다음날 보니까 이렇게 신문에 기사도 나왔어요~~
Google Korea employees were so kind and took care of us.
They loved Yerin a lot, and it was a great experience.

Here is the trophy and bouquet that we received. Haha, there wasn't a money reward.
But there were visitors' souveniers, so we brought one home.
I hope we can win next year too. Haha.

구글 코리아 직원분들이 너무너무 잘 챙겨주시고,
예린이를 이뻐해주셔서, 정말 기분좋은 경험이였습니다.

상으로 받은 트로피와 꽃다발입니다. 아쉽게도 부상은 없네요 ㅋ
그래도 방문자 기념품은 챙겨서 왔어요~ ^^;
내년에 또 받을 수 있으면 좋겠어요. ㅋㅋ
