Ha Jung Woo, Ha Ji Won, Lee Je Hoon and Min Hyo Rin will be winning awards at the 16th Pucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (PiFan).
On July 13, PiFan announced that Ha Jung Woo and Ha Ji Won had been chosen for the Producer’s Choice Award, an award given by top producers, and that Lee Je Hoon and Min Hyo Rin had been chosen for the Fantasia Award, an award given by Pucheon citizens.
The Producer’s Choice Award will be given out for the first time this year, and awards actors who have been chosen by the Korea Film Producers Association as the actors of the year.
Ha Jung Woo and Ha Ji Won will be honored with the first round of trophies. Ha Jung Woo boasted the power he wielded in the Box Office by making Nameless Gangster and Love Fiction both successes, while Ha Ji Won showed off her strong will through the film Korea.
A rep from the Korea Film Producers Association said on its choice, “[Ha Jung Woo and Ha Ji Won] are actors who have both perfect acting skills and power to succeed in the market, and have been putting together most impressive filmographies recently. They are also actors who can lead various genres in Korea together with PiFan.”
The winners of the Fantasia Award were chosen based on street polls taken by Pucheon locals in June.
Lee Je Hoon and Min Hyo Rin were chosen in the end. Lee Je Hoon impressed the public with his appearances in The Front Line and Bleak Night, and finally rose to top star status through the film Architecture 101.
Min Hyo Rin made it big last year with Sunny, and is looking toward the premieres for her films Five Million Dollar Manand Gone with the Wind.
The four actors will appear at the opening ceremony for the festival to be held on July 19, and will speak to their fans after walking the red carpet. PiFan will start on July 19 to take place for 10 days until July 29.
