One of the nation's all-time highest grossing movies "The King and the Clown" was awarded Best Picture and Best Screenplay at this year's Cape Town World Cinema Festival, which ended Monday in South Africa.

It's the first Korean movie to compete at the festival, which is the largest in Africa.

Other Korean films, "A Bittersweet Life" by Kim Jee-woon and "3-Iron" by Kim Ki-duk were invited as out-of-competition selections.

Director Lee Joon-ik's "The King and the Clown", a period film about a Joseon dynasty king and his court jester, has been invited to several international film festivals in Toronto, Tokyo, London, Hawaii, Vancouver and Chicago.
