The 7th Huading Awards took place at the Beijing Olympic Gymnasium on July 4, and Jung Il Woo became the first Korean to have been invited to the event.
In previous years, this award ceremony was geared only towards Chinese actors and actresses. However, this year, it has enlarged its scope to include actors from other Asian countries as well.
During the award ceremony, Jung Il Woo was announced as the winner of the “Best Asian Male Actor Award,” proving his immense popularity both domestically and internationally. In doing so, he also became the first Korean actor to take home an award at the Huading Awards.
Jung Il Woo also came in first in a real-time online survey conducted that asked the netizens to vote for their favorite star among the actors who attended the award ceremony.
