Singer and actor Park Yoo-chun captured the best new male actor crown for his film, “Sea Fog,” at the 51st Grand Bell Awards on Friday.
Park contested with actors Yim Si-wan, An Jae-hong, Yeo Jin-gu and Choi Jin-hyuk.
“The film ‘Sea Fog’ was the first film I shot this year. I want to thank filmmaker Shim Sung-bo and other colleagues who worked with me,” Park said. “It’s hard to believe I’m approaching the last heydays of my 20s this year. I am sincerely humbled by the award,” he quipped.
Actor Choi Min-sik and actress Son Ye-jin won awards for the best actor and actress for “The Admiral: Roaring Currents” and “The Pirates,” respectively.
“The Admiral: Roaring Currents,” which drew more than 10 million viewers in record time in Korean film history, captured quadruple crowns: the best film award, best technology award, best project award and best male actor award.
“The Attorney” also seized four awards, including the best new director award and best supporting actress award.
The award ceremony was held at the KBS Hall in Yeouido, Seoul, hosted by actor Shin Hyun-joon, Oh Man-seok and actress Uhm Jung-hwa.
