Kim Kang-woo received the Best Actor Award at the 25th Torino Film Festival for his acting in "The Railroad". Director Park Heung-shik's film also won the Fipresci Award.

The Railroad premiered successfully in 2006 at the Pusan International Film Festival in the New Current section and enjoyed a limited release in Korean cinemas around May 2007. "The Railroad" is PARK's second feature film and was supported by the 2005 KOFIC Production Support for Low-budget Films.

KIM plays a man whose path crosses a woman portrayed by Son Tae-yeong. Both happened to be on the same train and end up together at the last stop before the North-South Korean border.

KIM is quickly rising to stardom this year because of the box office hit "Le Grand Chef" and is in the spotlight again because of the upcoming film "Rainbow Eyes". SON featured in the assembly cast of "Sad Movie" and numerous television dramas.
