"A Taxi Driver" and "I Can Speak" swept the annual Blue Dragon Film Awards on Saturday evening.

"A Taxi Driver" won best picture, best actor (Song Kang-ho), most watched, and best music (Jo Yeong-wook). "I Can Speak" bagged two important categories -- best actress (Na Moon-hee) and best director (Kim Hyun-seok).

"A Taxi Driver" was this year's only film to draw over 10 million viewers and tells the story of a taxi driver who takes a German journalist to Gwangju during the democratic uprising in May 1980.

"I Can Speak" is a comedy about an elderly woman who constantly files complaints with the local office but also touches on the serious topic of Korean women who were forced into sexual slavery by imperial Japan during World War II.

Cha Tae-hyun stood on stage while the event paid tribute to fellow actors who died this year, including Kim Ji-yeong, Yoon So-jung, Kim Young-ae, and Kim Joo-hyuk.

"I remember the year 2017 as a year when many of my beloved colleagues left us", Cha told the audience.
