HONG KONG - APRIL 05: (CHINA OUT) Actor Song Joong-ki and actress Song Hye-kyo attend television drama 'Descendants of the Sun' press conference on April 5, 2016 in Hong Kong, Hong Kong.

The 2016 Korean Pop Culture and Arts Awards was held on October 27, 2016, and actors Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo of the hit drama series "Descendants of the Sun," also known as the SongSong couple, were just two of the many award recipients. The event gives recognition to the personalities who are recognized by the Korean government as one of the most important entertainers of the year.

Allkpop reported that the two actors attended the awards ceremony and sat side by side during the event. The said awards night also celebrates the works of directors, creators, and entertainers in various industries. Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo were given the President's Award for their roles in the "Descendants of the Sun," the most prestigious of all five categories of the event. The scriptwriter of the drama also received an award.

In her acceptance speech, Song Hye Kyo said, "I am reminded of all the staff who worked hard. I was able to receive this award because of all the fans here and abroad. I will continue to work hard to win the hearts of drama viewers everywhere."

Song Joong Ki then followed and said, "I am glad to receive an award on the same stage with Asia's Prince, Lee Kwang Soo, who has been with me since we were rookies. I am just a young actor who still lacks in acting ability and have much to learn."

The actor continued, "I believe I am loved because of all the efforts of all the actors before me, and if I go back even further, it is because of our ancestors. I am filming 'Warship' which is about Korean who were forced into labor on Hashima Island, and I became very serious about thinking about this. I am here because of all the people who made sacrifices. I will work hard to advance the pop culture from where I am."

Congratulations, SongSong couple!
