Director Hong Sang-soo has won an award at the 22nd Mar del Plata International Film Festival for last year's "Woman on the Beach".

According to the organizing committee of the Pusan International Film Festival, the Korean filmmaker took best director honors at the Argentine film festival, which ended Sunday.

Following the domestic release of "Woman on the Beach" last August, Hong was named Director of the Year by a group of young Korean movie directors. The film, starring Kim Seung-woo and Go Hyun-jung, also screened at the Berlin International Film Festival in February of last year.
