Korean director Kim Ki-duk is cementing its world-wide fame earned after receiving the Golden Lion award at the 69th Venice International Film Festival.
Kim's 18th film “Pieta” has received four honors from the Korean Association of Film Critics [KAFC] at the 32nd awards ceremony held at the Korea Press Center in Seoul last evening.
The cruel morality film was chosen for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress and FIPRESCI Korea Award, a prize given to the International film critics.
Korean heartthrob Lee Byung-hun’s first historic pic “Masquerade,” which scored 15 awards at the 49th Daejong Film Awards last week, received only one at the ceremony after being recognized as Best Art.
Veteran actor Ahn Seong-gi, the host of the ceremony, won Best Actor trophy for “Unbowed” and just like the Daejong, the honor of Rookie Actor and Rookie Actress went to “My Neighbor” star Kim Sun-Kyun and “Eungyo” starlet Kim Go-eun.
