JYJ’s Yoochun Takes Home ‘Best New Actor’ Award at Daejong Film Festival

JYJ member Park Yoochun was recently awarded with the Best New Actor award for his role in his debut film “Haemoo (Sea Fog)” at this year’s Daejong Film Festival.

The 51st Annual Daejong Film Festival took place on November 21 at KBS Hall in Yeouido, Seoul. During this awards ceremony, Yoochun was able to take home the Best New Actor award, which is a special award that actors can only receive once in their lifetime, as a rookie.

Going up against Yoochun was a list of very strong nominees, including Ahn Jae Hong (“The King of Jokgu”), Yeo Jin Goo (“Hwayi: A Monster Boy”), ZE:A’s Im Siwan (“The Attorney”), and Choi Jin Hyuk (“The Divine Move”).

After finding out that his fellow group member had won the award, JYJ’s Junsu cheered Yoochun on through a post on his personal Twitter account: “Yoochun~ I’m seriously proud of you!!!!^^ Congratulations! ClapClapClap.”
