The most famous film director of Korean residence in Japan 'Yoichi Sai (Korean name: Choi Yang-il)'s 'Blood and Bone' has swept over major three parts in the 28th Japan Academy Awarding Ceremony held in Tokyo on late Feb. 18.

As 'Blood and Bone' sweeps over major film festivals in Japan such as Mainichi Film Concours, the movie has proven that it is the highest film among movies produced there during one year last year both nominally and virtually.

Takeshi Kitano, Joe Odagiri, and Suzuki Kyoka star in this film and the movie has swept over four parts in the 49th Mainichi Movie Concours also announced on past Jan. 17.

In movie 'Blood and Bones', Shunpei is a violent man, working at the fish factory in Osaka. When he is off, he drinks and is continuously consumed by hate.

When the factory closes, he becomes a loan shark. That is the simple characteristic of the main character, to be played by Kitano Takeshi.

Based upon one of the biggest bestsellers in Korea - the Yamamoto-Syugoro prize winning novel "Chi no Hone" by Yang Sogiru (Sogil Yan) - the film tells the story about Yang Sogiru's father, Shunpei, who was amongst the first generation Koreans to live in Japan
