Actor Kim Soo-hyun, 24, won the Best Actor for Television award at the 48th Paeksang Arts Awards at Olympic Hall in eastern Seoul, Thursday.

Kim played the role of a gentle yet passionate king on the MBC drama "The Sun and the Moon" earlier this year and was praised for his delicate portrayal of the fictional rular of the Joseon Kingdom (1392-1910).

He was the youngest and newest among the candidates, but he beat heavyweight contenders including Han Seok-gyu from "Deep-rooted Tree", Shin Ha-kyun of "Brain" and Cha Seung-won from "The Greatest Love".

"I am very grateful for this moment, but I am ashamed as well. It's like getting a lot of homework. I'll do even better in the future", he said after receiving the trophy.

The Grand Prize for Television went to SBS "Deep-rooted Tree" and actress Gong Hyo-jin won the Best Actress award for her appearance in "The Greatest Love".

"Nameless Gangster" was awarded the Grand Prize for Movie and director Byeon Yeong-joo of "Helpless" won the Best Director award. Ahn Sung-ki of "Unbowed" and Uhm Jung-hwa of "Dancing Queen" won the Best Actor and Actress award, respectively. Suzy of girl band Miss A won the Best New Actress award for movies with her first movie "Architecture 101".
