Sunshine and secrets at the 6th Korean Film Awards


There was a bit of sunshine on the red carpet but no secrets. At least none that we know of.

At the Sixth Korean Film Awards, the night belonged to Secret Sunshine (밀양) with Cannes award winner for Best Actress Jeon Do-yeon, co-star Song Kang ho and director, Lee Chang-dong.  Korean-as-a-second-language hottie Daniel Henney was recognized for his English acting skills in his portrayal of adopted son in My Father and the no-show Song Hye-gyo nabbed the Best New Actress award for Hwangjini. Also, Shim Hyung-rae’s disastrous over hyped film, D-War (aka Dragon Wars) managed to get a nod for its special effects.

Style at the 44th Daejong Film Awards

The longest running awards ceremony honoring the best of Korean film, the Daejong Film Awards (aka “Grand Bell”) was held at Sejong Cultural Center on Friday night,  June 8th, 2007.  As with all awards shows, the best part is seeing who wears what, or should I say, showing off what. Similar to the Paeksang awards, there was ample cleavage and miles of legs wrapped in black or cream satin, lace or chiffon. The only real exception to the monochromatic palette was Ms. Jang Mi-hee, looking modern in a satin canary yellow dress framed by a dramatic gold necklace.
