2008/10/24 | Permalink | Source

At the closing ceremony of the Luis Vuitton Hawaii Film Festival on 19 October, director Kim Jee-woon received the Maverick award. KIM's "The Good, the Bad, the Weird", was screened at the festival. The Maverick award is for directors or actors who contributed to cinema with their originality or challenging works.

At the same closing ceremony, Jung Woo-sung was honored with the Achievement in acting award. Hawaii had already announced that Jeong would receive the recognition prior to the festival and that he would attend the festival. Jeong plays the 'good' in Kim's kimchi western.

Festival reports tell about a particular great interest in "The Good, the Bad, the Weird", including Japanese fans who came to Hawaii to see Jeong. Jeong told audiences and press that it was his first time in Hawaii and that he was happy and overwhelmed by the warm attention.
