Ha Ji-won became the winner of the MBC Grand Prize.

Ha Ji-won received the highlight of the 2013 MBC Acting Awards that was held in Yeouido on the 30th.

She's currently playing the lead role in the MBC drama "Empress ki" as Ki Seung-nyang and is responsible for the leading MBC ahead of others. She won the most honorable award of the night.

Ha Ji-won manages to pull off mellow, action and comedy acts in the drama about a woman who was taken to the Yuan Dynasty as a court lady and somehow made her way up to empress. She's managed to take the drama to the top of the list and has shown amazing team work as well.

This is Ha Ji-won's second Grand Prize. She's already won it twice in 2006 for "Hwangjin-i". She was nominated for Grand Prize with "Secret Garden" last year but was beat by Go Hyun-jung from "Daemul - Big Thing".

Ha Ji-won was listed for 'this year's Actress Award' and 'the most Popular Award' selected by the viewers. It's like she's been acknowledged as one with contributiveness, acting skills and popularity.

Joo Jin-mo in the role of the king won the Best Actor in the special edition category, Ji Chang-wook in the role of Ta Hwan won the Great Acting Award and Baek Jin-hee in the role of Tanasili won the Rookie Actress Award. The writers Jeong Kyeong-soon-I and Jang Yeong-cheol won Best Writers.
