Hong Sang-soo Named Best Director

2006/12/22 | 234 views | Permalink | Source

Hong Sang-soo of "Woman on the Beach" fame was chosen the best director by his peers.

At the Director's CUT Awards held Thursday evening, Hong was honored with the Best Director of 2006 award. Hong's latest work "Woman on the Beach" won an overwhelming number of votes for its mellow plot and witty twists.

The Best Independent Director of the Year award went to Lee Song-hee-il for the distinctly unique film "No Regret". Director Son Jae-gon of "My Scary Girl" was named the Best New Director of the Year.

Instead of separating the best actor and best actress award, this year's ceremony presented the "best performers award" to the starring cast of this year's mega hit "The Host", Byun Hee-bong, Song Kang-ho, Park Hae-il, Bae Doona, and Go Ah-sung.

Ryu Deok-hwan of "Like A Virgin" received the Best New Actor Award and Choo Ja-hyun of "Bloody Tie" the Best New Actress Award.

Lee Chun-yeon, director of the Korean Association of Film Art and Industry, was honored with the Filmmaker of the Year Award for his lifetime achievement in the Korean film industry and his work to protect the screen quota system.
