Kimura Crowned at Seoul Drama Awards

Japanese actor Takuya Kimura won the Best Actor Award at the 2007 Seoul Drama Awards (SDA) held Monday night in Seoul. He won the award for his role in the Japanese TBS-made drama "The Grand Tribe", which aired on the cable channel XTM in Korea this summer.

British actress Helen Mirren won the Best Actress Award for her detective role in the popular British drama "Prime Suspect", which has aired on Mega TV, a channel run by telecom company KT, since July.

Both winners did not show up at the award ceremony, drawing criticism from viewers that the annual SDA, which is the second of its kind, failed to meet up to expectations. Instead, several Korean celebrities made special appearances for the ceremony as award presenters, including popular actors Ryu Soo-young, Chun Jung-myung, and Rick Yune, a Korean American actor, as well as actresses Jang Nara and Park Si-yeon.

Meanwhile, manga-based Japanese drama "Nodame Cantabile", which airs on MBC Movies, was chosen as the best mini-series drama.

"The Tudors", a British mini-series, centered on the controversial King Henry VIII played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, followed as the runner-up in the category. Pop singer Lee Hyori, who attended the ceremony, said that she is a fan of the British drama that airs on the cable channel CGV. Celebrating the win, the channel will give the series a special airing for two weeks from Sept. 10, every morning at 10 a.m.
