Lee Byung Hun and Jo Min Su Become the Best Actor and Actress at the ′Daejong Film Awards′

Lee Byung Hun and Jo Min Su won the awards for Best Actor and Best Actress at the 49th Daejong Film Awards.

Lee Byung Hun also had more reason to celebrate, as his film Masquerade sweeped 15 awards this day.



The Daejong Film Awards were held on October 30 in Yeoido.

At the ceremony, Lee Byung Hun won two awards, the Best Actor Award and Popularity Award. His Best Actor Award was his first at the Daejong Film Awards, making it an even more memorable day for him. He, however, wasn′t able to attend the ceremony in person as he was in London shooting his film Red 2.

The Best Actress Award went to Jo Min Su of Pieta, the film that won the Leone D′Oro at the 69th Venice Film Festival. With this, she won the award she wasn′t able to despite getting the most points from the judges at the Venice Film Festival, due to the ceremony′s rules that one film can′t win in more than one area.

Jo Min Su said, "I′m about to cry but I′ll try not to. My nephew told me that a lot of his friends don′t know me, so I should work harder. Now, though, he said they know me. I believe most actors will always be happy when their names are called. I want to thank director Kim Ki Duk of Pieta and my family. The 24 staff members also helped me stand here in this spot. I thank you so much."
