The Asian-Pacific Producers Networks (APN) will honor Korean actor Lee Byung-hun, actress Son Ye-jin and film director Bong Joon-ho at the APN Awards for their contributions to the film industry in the region.

The 5th APN Awards will be held at the Jecheon International Music and Film Festival in North Chungcheong Province from Aug. 12 to 14.

APN is a network of some 100 current film producers from 10 Asia-Pacific countries ― Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.

From this year, the organization will expand the number of winners from one actor or actress of the host country of the APN general meeting to three categories ― actor, actress and director.

Known as a "hallyu" star, Lee recently starred in the popular television drama series "IRIS" (2009) and his debut Hollywood film "G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra" (2009).

Son also performed various characters in the film "White Night" (2009) and television dramas "Spotlight" (2008) and "Personal Taste" (2010).

Bong has been internationally recognized for his masterful films "The Host" (2006) and "Mother - 2009" (2009).

Cannes-award winning actress Jeon Do-yeon received the award for "Secret Sunshine" in 2007, while Japanese actor Kenichi Matsuyama won the award for his performance in "Death Note" in 2008. Chinese actress Xun Zhou who acted in "The Banquet (2006)", "Painted Skin (2008)" and "Confucius (2010)" was honored in 2009.
