They are the VIPs including the president of CICI.

 Thank you again for the VIPs who attended despite of your busy schedule.

Before the event began, there was a reception for the attendees.

After the congratulatory, the Korea Image award ceremony had started.

For Korea Image Stepping Stone Awardee

world famous Korean singer PSY won!  

Unfortunately, PSY was not in Korea at the moment, so we watched a video of his speech about receiving the award.

His father had awarded instead of him.


His father made jokes when he told his feelings about the award
and everybody laughed.

So, now we all know where PSY got his humor.^^

A brilliant 12 years old pianist Lee Hyuk was awarded! 

He won the first prize at 8th International Chopin Competition
