Directors select KONG Hyo-jin and HA Jeong-woo

2008/12/19 Source

Korean directors favoured the performances of Gong Hyo-jin and Ha Jung-woo as 2008's best. The 11th Director's Cut Awards for Best actress went to KONG for her acting in "Crush and Blush". HA earned the Best actor award in recognition of his role in "The Chaser".

Both films are directed by first-time feature film directors, illustrating the prominence of new talented directors in 2008. Lee Kyoung-mi guided Gong Hyo-jin in "Crush and Blush" and HA landed a leading role in Na Hong-jin's "The Chaser". HA also acted this year in "My Dear Enemy".

Best director became an established director, Kim Jee-woon won the Best director nod for "The Good, the Bad, the Weird", this year's box office champion.

Best new actor and actress became Yoo Ah-in ("Antique") and Seo Woo ("Crush and Blush"). Jung Byung-gil received the Independent Movie Director Award. JEONG filmed young stuntmen for his documentary "Action Boys". Their passion and dreams make the stuntmen committed to the underpaid and dangerous occupation.
