Winners of the 31st Blue Dragon Film Awards

The 31st Blue Dragon Film Awards were held at the National Theater in Seoul on November 26.  The Blue Dragon Film Awards are an annual ceremony which rewards the best Korean blockbusters and artistic movies released during the past year. 

The top honors for Best Film went to the action drama movie “Secret Reunion”, starring Song Kang Ho and Kang Dong Won.  However, in other categories, the film adaptation of an online comic called “Moss” reigned supreme, claiming awards for Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actor.  Notably, this year, the Best Actress prize was given to two actresses, Soo Ae for “Midnight FM” and veteran actress Yoon Jung Hee for “Poetry”, for which they competed against LOST’s Kim Yunjin, Jeon Do Yeon, and Seo Young Hee.  Best Actor Jung Jae Young also faced stiff competition against Won Bin, Park Hee Soon, Kang Dong Won, and Lee Byung Hun

Big Bang’s T.O.P. (credited as Choi Seung Hyun) cleaned up well, taking home two awards, one for Best New Actor and another in Popularity, which he also shared with veteran actors Won Bin, Jo Yeo Jung, and Son Ye Jin.
