Two movies starring Kang Ha-neul,  "Midnight Runners" and "New Trial", have received nominations at the upcoming 54th Daejong (Grand Bell) Film Awards.  The nominees were selected by a panel of thirty-two industry experts over a 10-day screening period.

"Midnight Runners" was released in South Korea on August 9. It tells the story about two police academy students (Kang Ha-neul  and Park Seo-joon) investigate a kidnapping case that they personally witnessed.

"Midnight Runners" was nominated for the following categories:

Best New Director (Kim Joo-hwan) Best New Actor (Park Seo-joon)

The action comedy film is known for the strong chemistry between the lead actors. It was seen by 5.6 million viewers domestically and is currently South Korea's 4th top grossing film in admissions.


Meanwhile, legal drama "New Trial" is based on a real-life murder case where a teenager (Kang Ha-neul) was falsely accused of killing a taxi driver and sentenced to a ten-year prison term. After ten years, he seeks the help of a lawyer (Jung Woo) in deep financial debt who helps him achieve justice and clears his name. The movie was released domestically on February 15.

"New Trial" was nominated in the following categories:

Best New Actor (Min Jin-woong) Best Supporting Actress (Kim Hae-sook) Best Planning

Known as South Korea's equivalent to the American Academy Awards, the Daejong Film Awards was launched in 1962 to boost the quality of Korean films and to support the industry.
