28th Critics Choice Awards names its top honors

The 28th Critics Choice Awards, presented by the Association of Korean Film Critics, awarded its top honors on November 5. The film A Movie Is a Movie (or Rough Cut), starring So Ji-sub and Kang Ji-hwan (above), was the big winner of the night, pulling in three awards total, two for its lead actors and one for its director.

Su Ae also added to her stash of awards for the Vietnam War-period film You’re Far Away, while Kim Ki-duk‘s latest film Dream (Bimong) was also honored.

We can expect more awards ceremonies to come in the coming months, with each drama station putting on its respective ceremonies as well as the Blue Dragon Awards, among others.

What a refreshingly casual awards ceremony. I love KJH, congratulate him whole heartedly and he is my favorite actor but why exactly was he given the "Best NEW Actor" award? Isn't he a seasoned vet by now?

Just wondering . . . was it just an arbitrary decision to designate Kang Ji Hwan as the "New Actor"? I think both have only done one film prior.

@ belleza
Kang Ji Hwan made 1 movie in 2005, SJS made 2 ( 2002, 2007)
plus KJK 's on screen debut as an actor (2003) came much later than SJS (1997), so even tho their ages are close, and KJK has musical theatre experience, in that sense he is still the newb of the 2
Plus they both had to win! so they had to make it works some way,,,

thanks for the news and can't wait to see see M is M.

Gah! I keep seeing these tidbits about A Movie Is a Movie, which drives me batty since I can't watch it yet D: Lol, it causes me to check the jdrama lj very often in hopes it'd magically appear there somehow.

An award given to it's own owner.

So Ji Sub, like it or not, he is one extremely talented actor now on. My fav since before.

KJH, So Ae and So Ji Sub, three of them in one line to be my favorite screen casts right now. So Ae was so talented as well.
