Korean Drama Wins Amnesty International Award

TV drama "Thank You" was honored with the 10th Special Media Award from Amnesty International. Starring Jang Hyuk and Gong Hyo-jin, the heart-warming drama was recognized for its frank, yet sensitive portrayal of a young AIDS patient and her family and friends.

An Amnesty International official said that "Thank You" was chosen because it dealt with a touchy subject that had not been broached in other TV dramas and taught the audience to respect AIDS patients and other underprivileged members of our society.

"Thank You" was Jang Hyuk's first TV starring role following his controversial two-year military service. Jang fulfilled his military duty after being blasted for dodging draft by bribing military officials. His return to the TV screen proved to be successful, as he played a doctor who takes care of the young girl with AIDS and eventually falls in love with her single mother.
