The Oporto International Film Festival, better known as Fantasporto, presented two awards to Korean cinema in its closing ceremony on March 3.

Bong Joon-ho's acclaimed third feature "The Host" screened in the festival's main Official Fantasy competition section and was presented with an award for Best Director. The winner of this section was Pan's Labyrinth by Mexican director Guillermo del Toro.

Meanwhile, in the 17th Director's Week section, young actor Ha Jung-woo won Best Actor for his leading role in Kim Ki-duk's thirteenth film "Time". HA, who is seen as a key up-and-coming actor for his talent and his English abilities, also appears in KIM's next film "Breath", currently in post-production.

HA is the fourth Korean actor to receive an award at Fantasporto, following Suh Jung in "The Isle" in 2001, Jang Jin-yeong in "Sorum" in 2003, and Im Soo-jung in "A Tale of Two Sisters" in 2004.
