  • Korean Stars Honoured at NYAFF

    The New York Asian Film Festival which has already screened a host of Korean films has honoured two of Korea’s up and coming actors KONG Hyo-jin and SO Ji-sub.  Both actors received the Rising Star Asia Award.  Both actors appeared accompanying their films showing at the 8th annual festival.

    KONG who won the award because of LEE Kyoung-mi’s Crush and Blush (2008) earlier won The 11th Director's Cut Awards for Best actress in Korea.  SO who has been acting for a number of years now appeared in TV drama I am Sorry, I Love You back in 2006 and numerous other TV series since then.  He received his award at the NYAFF for Rough Cut, the film written and produced in part by KIM Gi-duk.  KONG on the other hand appeared in the thriller M (2007) and as far back as 1999 in the school girl, supernatural thriller Memento Mori. 

    The NYAFF opened June 19 and will wrap up this Sunday July the 15th.
