The KBS 2TV drama "Hong Gil-dong, the Thief" ("Hong Gil Dong") was awarded "Best Mini-Series" at the 2nd Rome Fiction Festival.

The awards ceremony was held on July 12th in Rome, Italy. After "Hong Gil-dong, the Thief" ("Hong Gil Dong") won the award, KBS was awarded with "Best Producer and Broadcasting Network" in the mini-series category.

The Rome Fiction Festival began on July 7th. It is a festival for television productions with six competitive categories and 10 non-competitive ones for TV movies, mini-series, and dramas. Approximately 200 television productions were reviewed.

"Hong Gil-dong, the Thief" ("Hong Gil Dong") stars Kang Ji-hwan, Seong Yoo-ri, Jang Geun-seok and Kim Ri-na, and ended its run last March. It was a comical, fusion period-piece which was praised for its successful attempt at expanding the normal parameters of a historical TV drama.
