Actor Cho Seung-woo has won an award for the first time at an international film festival for his realistic portrayal of an autistic marathoner in the film "Marathon" (2005), directed by Chung Yoon-chul.

According to CineLine-Two, the production company of "Marathon", on Nov. 14, Cho won the Best Actor Award in the Overseas Film Division at the "Jinji Baihuajiang (金鷄百花奬) Film Festival" held in Sanya, Hainan Province, China on Nov. 9-13.

Marking the 14th anniversary of its founding this year, the "Jinji Baihuajiang Film Festival" is China's largest film festival, consisting of the Art Film Division (Jinjijiang) and Pop Film Division (Baihuajiang). It also invites movies produced in Chinese-speaking regions such as Hong Kong and Taiwan. The film festival opened the Overseas Film Division for the first time this year, to which about 20 foreign films were invited.

Cho was the only winner selected from the Asian region in this division. He was unable to attend the award ceremony because of the busy shooting schedule of his new film "Lizard".

"Marathon" was screened at the film festival on the morning of Nov. 11. It won high acclaim from the audience, who filled the seats despite the early morning showtime. Officials of the film festival reportedly expressed great interest in the actors and actress of the film.

Jackie Chan won the Jinji Baihuajiang Best Actor Award for the first time as an actor from Hong Kong for his role in "New Police Story".
