The 2008 Blue Dragon Awards chose a sports drama about the silver medal-winning Korean women handball Olympic team as the best movie of the year. In the award ceremony at the KBS Hall in Yeouido, Seoul, on Thursday, the award for the best film went to "Forever the Moment" directed by Yim Soon-rye. The movie is based on the true story of the women's Olympic team which lost to Denmark in the finals of the 2004 Athens Olympics on penalty shots.

The ceremony, the 29th, was presented by actor Jung Joon-ho and actress Kim Hye-soo.

The award for the best actor went to Kim Yun-seok, who plays a dirty detective who becomes a pimp in "The Chaser". Son Ye-jin won the award for the best actress for her role in "My Wife Got Married". Kim Jee-woon won best director for "The Good, the Bad, the Weird". The movie won three other awards, in cinematography and art direction, and for the movie that drew the biggest audience with 6.68 million.

The proceedings turned solemn when Choi Jin-sil was named as the recipient of honorary popular star award. It was 50 days since Choi died by her own hand. Actor Ahn Sung-ki paid tribute to her, saying "The films that she left us will be remembered in our hearts forever".

Other awards:

Best new actor: So Ji-sub and Kang Ji-hwan for "Rough Cut"

Best new actress: Han Ye-seul

Best new director: Lee Kyoung-mi for "Crush and Blush"

Best screenplay: Lee Kyoung-mi for "Crush and Blush"
