The Busan Film Critics Association (BCFA) has named Tang Wei best actress for her role in the local melodrama "Late Autumn - 2010". This marks the Chinese star's third honorable mention in Korea.
The 32-year-old Chinese actress is slated to attend the ceremony for the 12th BCFA Awards tonight at the Busan Cinema Center in the southern port city.
Tang recently won best actress awards for "Late Autumn - 2010" at the 31st Korean Association of Film Critics Award and at the 47th Paeksang Arts Awards.
She is the first foreign actress to win a top prize in all three awards.
Tang was also in Seoul last week to attend the Blue Dragon Film Awards as a best actress nominee. Kim Ha-neul won the award that evening for her role in "Blind".
"Late Autumn - 2010", co-starring heartthrob Hyeon Bin, is a remake of the 1960s classic "Manchu", and premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Set in Seattle, the film is about a female convict who falls in love with a man on the run while on parole.
