Yoo Ah In Wins Most Favorite Actor For The Second Time At The 16th Korea World Youth Film Festival
Another award for Yoo Ah In aka our Master Sik, which is quite surprising, judging from his one year hiatus from the big screen 🙂
The 16th Korea World Youth Film Festival (KWYFF) announced the winners of popularity award on October 17 prior to the award ceremony. Among those chosen were Yoo Ah In, Kim Hye Ja, Baek Yoon Sik, Kim Go Eun, Jeon Ji Hyun and the “Veteran” film director Ryu Seung Wan.
This is the second time Yoo Ah In won most favorite actor prize in Korea World Youth Film Festival, or two years in a row. Last year, Yoo Ah In also won the same category in this festival.
Korea World Youth Film Festival (KWYFF) is a festival organized by the Korea Youth Video Arts Foundation and Dream Invitation Motion Pictures Award (DIMA). For the 16th annual Korea World Youth Film Festival, adolescents voted on their favorite actors and actresses of 2016.
Voting took place from August to October 8th through the KWYFF homepage http://www.dima.or.kr, with the results announced on October 17. The categories included favorite actor, favorite actress, favorite new actor or actress, favorite veteran actor or actress, and favorite film director.
Yoo Ah In, who showed impressive and prominent acting skills during the second half of 2015 through blockbuster movies Veteran and The Throne, was chosen again for the second time as the Most Favorite Actor, this time for his performance as Prince Sado in The Throne.
Chosen for the favorite actress category was Jun Ji Hyun (Assassination), while Lee Dong Hwi (Reply 1988) was chosen as favorite new actor, and Kim Go Eun (Granola) as the rising star.
Director Ryoo Seung Wan once again received overwhelming support from the young filmmakers as the Most Favorite Film Director for his movie “Veteran”. This is also his second popularity award in KWYFF after last year’s KWYFF.
Senior actor Baek Yoon Sik (The Insider: Original) and Kim Hye Ja (Princess Deokhye) claimed Most Favorite Actor and Most Favorite Actress, and child actress Kim Hwan Hee (The Wailing) claimed Most Favorite Child Actor.
