Jeong Il-woo won the Asia's Male Actor award at the 2012 Huading Awards on Wednesday.

The annual awards show in Beijing recognizes the Chinese public's favorite entertainers. Jeong became the first non-Chinese entertainer to be nominated and win an award since the awards started seven years ago.

Accepting the award, Jeong thanked his Chinese fans in Mandarin and said it was an honor to take home the coveted award.

After the show, Jeong also was named Most Popular Entertainer at the show in a poll by the search engine Sina.com.

The awards show had previously focused only on the Chinese entertainment scene, but this year decided to include all of Asia. Award winners were chosen through phone and online surveys as well as by a panel of entertainment insiders and experts.

His agency said Jeong was invited following the popularity of last year's "Flower Boy Ramyun Shop". The tvN production was No. 1 among dramas streamed in China.
