South Korean films won the majority of the awards at the 51st Asia Pacific Film Festival which concluded November 25th in Taipei after a four day run. All-time record holder "The Host" did extremely well, winning three awards: Best Editing for Kim Sun-min, Best Sound for CHOI Tae-yeong, and Best Supporting Actor for Byun Hee-bong.

Both Best Actor and Actress awards were won by South Koreans. Child actor Lee Jae-eung took the Best Actor award for his central role in "Bravo, My Life" ("Mommy, Dearest"). Actress Son Ye-jin picked up an award for her lead role in melodrama "April Snow" by director Heo Jin-ho.

Finally, director SEON Ji-yeon took the Best Short Film award for Atomic Punch, My Darling. A seven-member jury headed by Taiwanese director Hsing Lee judged the films.

The purpose of the festival is to promote the regional film industry and strengthen ties in the Asia-Pacific filmmaking community.
