Yoo Ah In is Honored Top Star Award At The 2015 Korea Film Actor’s Association Awards
The annual Korean Screen Actors Guild Awards, also known as Korea Film Actor’s Association Awards, is an accolade given by the Korea Film Actor’s Association to recognize outstanding performances in film and primetime television. The Korean actors and actresses association and members of it make up the judge.
The 2015 Korea Film Actor’s Association Awards ceremony was held on the evening of December 29 at the Grand Hyatt, and was hosted by Lee Jun Gi and Lee Dae Hee.
Actors Yoo Ah In, Lee Byung Hun and Han Hyo Joo were awarded the highest honors of the night, as this year’s TOP Star Award winners.
Yoo Ah In has been in two of the highest grossing domestic films of 2015 so far and won public recognition with “The Throne” (or “Sado”) and “Veteran”.
Unfortunately, he was not able to attend the award ceremony due to his drama Six Flying Dragon‘s filming schedule. The MC at the ceremony said that Yoo Ah In was at Moongyong, far away from Seoul, filming the drama.
Lee Byung Hun, who got hit by domestic issue during this year, bounced back with “Inside Men”. Han Hyo Joo, who has been tangled with his brother’s case (despite her has nothing to do with it), humbly entered the wide screen with “Beauty Inside”. The Top Star Awards result has stirred controversies in South Korea due to both of their issues, in addition to their actual achievement this year.
Instead of Lee Byung Hun, it’s obvious that Hwang Jung Min deserves the top star title the most, being an actor who has two of the highest grossing domestic films of 2015 (Ode to My Father, Veteran). Not to mention the new box office Himalaya. Hwang has drawn in over 30 million audience to the theaters throughout this year.
Amidst the Lee Byung Hun-Han Hyo Joo’s controversy, I’m so proud of Yoo Ah In getting the highest recognition from his fellow colleagues, because he deserves it! And am happy director Lee Joon Ik got the award as well 🙂
