TV directors of photography honor sageuk actors
Kim Sang-kyung and Moon Geun-young are the newest recipients of the 2008 Grime Award (pronounced gree-may) for acting, presented by the Korean Television Directors of Photography Association. The honor goes to their roles in their sageuk dramas, Great King Sejong and Painter of the Wind, respectively.
All other awards went to directors; the Daesang, the top award, went to directors Ha Jae-young and Jung Seung-woo for their work on MBC’s East of Eden.
Upon receiving his acting award, Kim Sang-kyung said, “I’m particularly happy to be receiving this award from directors. The most important mood-setter on the set is the director of photography; I wish him good health.”
Moon Geun-young said, “The director of photography, the lighting director, and the staff are always the ones on set who enable me to act my utmost, and enjoy myself the utmost. That’s how I was able to live whole-heartedly as Shin Yoon-bok.”

It may just be the new haircut, but I can’t help thinking Moon Geun-young, shown with fellow acting winner Kim Sang-kyung, is looking different since she fractured her nose during filming for Painter of the Wind…
