Actor Lee Byung-hun nabbed the Blue Dragon Film Award for best actor for the first time in his 25-year career, and after seven previous nominations, for his role as a smooth-talking gangster in last Novemberâ€™s political thriller â€œInside Men.â€
â€œWhen I saw the script for â€œInside Men,â€ I wondered if it exaggerated reality,â€ Lee said in his acceptance speech Friday at the awards ceremony at Kyung Hee University. â€œBut ultimately it seems like reality has surpassed â€˜Inside Men,â€™â€ he said, referring to the political scandal sweeping Korea involving Choi Soon-sil, under investigation for peddling unauthorized influence in state affairs and coercing funds from conglomerates.
Lee also addressed the mass candle vigils that have been calling for President Park Geun-hyeâ€™s resignation. â€œI had a belief that those candles would be candles of hope,â€ he said.
Leeâ€™s character in the film, Ahn Sang-goo, is a mobster who ends up being crushed by larger political powers more ruthless and power-hungry than his group of fist-wielding crooks.
The 46-year-old actor debuted in 2001 with the military drama â€œJoint Security Areaâ€ and has since forayed into Hollywood, starring in blockbusters like â€œG.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobraâ€ in 2009, â€œTerminator Genisysâ€ in 2015, and â€œThe Magnificent Sevenâ€ this year.
Among others nominated for the prize were Song Kang-ho for â€œThe Age of Shadows,â€ Jung Woo-sung for â€œAsura: The City of Madness,â€ Kwak Do-won for â€œThe Stranger (Goksung),â€ and Ha Jung-woo for â€œTunnel.â€
The award for best actress went to Kim Min-hee for her role as the lonely Japanese heiress Hideko in â€œThe Handmaiden.â€ She beat out Kim Hye-soo, nominated for â€œGood Bye Single,â€ Son Ye-jin for â€œThe Last Princess,â€ Youn Yuh-jung for â€œBacchus Lady,â€ and Han Ye-ri for â€œWorst Woman.â€
Kim, whose affair with married film director Hong Sang-soo was recently publicized, was not present at the ceremony. Producer Yoon Seok-chan of â€œThe Handmaidenâ€ received the award on her behalf.
â€œShe worked harder than anyone on the film, from 2013 until last yearâ€™s sweltering summer,â€ he said. â€œItâ€™s not easy to act in a foreign language. I will make sure to deliver the prize to her,â€ he said.
Other award recipients included Park So-dam, who won best supporting actress for â€œThe Priests,â€ and Japanese actor Kunimura Jun, who won best supporting actor for â€œThe Stranger.â€ The award for best director went to Na Hong-jin for â€œThe Stranger,â€ while the award for the best film went to â€œInside Men.â€
The ceremony was moderated by actress Kim Hye-soo and actor Yoo Joon-sang.
The annual Blue Dragon Film Awards is considered one of Koreaâ€™s three most influential awards ceremonies. This year saw the 37th edition of the awards.

Top Korean Film Awards Hand Out 4 Prizes to THE WAILING
WOO Min-hoâ€™s political thriller Inside Men won the Best Film award in a competitive field at this yearâ€™s 37th Blue Dragon Awards, the top Korean industry awards ceremony. Yet the most prolific winner of the night was the Cannes-bowed horror-thriller THE WAILING, which converted four of its 11 nominations into wins, including Best Director for NA Hong-jin. YOON Ga-eun took home the Best New Director prize for her debut feature The World of Us.
Inside Men, which received six nominations, also won in the Best Actor field with LEE Byung-hun taking that prize. Best Actress was given to KIM Min-hee of PARK Chan-wookâ€™s The Handmaiden.

Actor Lee Byung-hun and actress Kim Min-hee nabbed the best actor and actress awards at the 37th Blue Dragon Awards.
Held on Friday evening at Kyung Hee University, Lee was honored for his role in the political crime-thriller â€œInside Menâ€ (2015) and Kim for hers in the mystery-thriller â€œThe Handmaidenâ€ (2016).
â€œThis is how it feels to receive an award at the Blue Dragon Awards,â€ said Lee, who played a gangster in last Novemberâ€™s hit, in his acceptance speech at the ceremony. â€œIâ€™ve engaged in acting for the last 25 years but this is the first time I have won an award at the Blue Dragon Awards, which is truly an honor.â€
â€œWhen I first read the scenario for [â€œInside Menâ€], I thought it was too much of an exaggeration. However, I believe that reality now seems to have surpassed the movie,â€ Lee said, referring to the ongoing scandal revolving around the influence wielded by presidential friend Choi Soon-sil in the Park Geun-hye administration.

Actress Kim, who played a mysterious lesbian heiress in Juneâ€™s hit, did not attend the ceremony. She has been refusing to make public appearance since a scandal erupted over her relationship with director Hong Sang-soo, who is 22 years her senior and also married with a child, following the release of â€œThe Handmaiden.â€
Instead, the producer of â€œThe Handmaidenâ€ Yoon Seok-chan received the award on her behalf and said, â€œKim Min-hee worked harder than anyone else on the film from 2013 to last summer.
â€œEven though it wasnâ€™t easy to act in a foreign language (Japanese), she overcame that difficulty and pulled off the role very well,â€ he said.
Other winners at the ceremony included filmmaker Na Hong-jin, who won the best director award for Mayâ€™s mystery-thriller â€œThe Wailing,â€ Japanese actor Kunimura Jun, who won best supporting actor for his role in â€œThe Wailingâ€ and actress Park So-dam, who won best supporting actress for her role in â€œThe Priestsâ€ (2015).
Considered one of Koreaâ€™s most influential awards, this yearâ€™s Blue Dragon Awards ceremony was moderated by actor Yu Jun-sang and actress Kim Hye-soo.

2016 Blue Dragon Awards
by girlfriday | Dramabeans.com
The 37th Blue Dragon Awards opened with a star-studded red carpet and awarded the biggest films of the past year, which included The Wailing, The Handmaiden, Dongju: The Portrait of Poet, and Train to Busan. The big winner among them was Inside Men, the timely political thriller about uncovering the shady relationship between a chaebol and a presidential candidate.
The film won Best Picture and its lead actor Lee Byung-heon picked up the Best Actor trophy as well, over Song Kang-ho, Kwak Do-won, Jung Woo-sung, and Ha Jung-woo. Lee made a political statement in his acceptance speech, saying, â€œWhen I read the screenplay for Inside Men, I wondered if the filmâ€™s subject was too exaggerated. I thought that it was making the social condition too dramatic. But now I think reality has overtaken the movie,â€ in reference to South Koreaâ€™s presidential scandal, which many have compared to the filmâ€™s plot.
Kim Min-hee beat out nominees Sohn Ye-jin, Yoon Yeo-jung, Han Ye-ri, and Kim Hye-soo for Best Actress in Park Chan-wookâ€™s The Handmaiden, though she was not in attendance for the ceremony. The red carpet was full of up-and-comers though, many of whom have spent the last year in both film and dramaland, and for me the highlight was Park So-dam winning Best Supporting Actress for The Priests, and Park Jung-min winning New Actor for Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet. It was extra amusing to see him arrive with Dongju director Lee Jun-ik, following the directorâ€™s recent cameo stint in Entourage. Park Jung-min isnâ€™t all that newâ€”not like New Actress winner Kim Tae-ri, who debuted in The Handmaidenâ€”but heâ€™s certainly breaking out this year. Itâ€™s about time.
