The Director’s Cut Awards, an industry awards event put on annually by the Korea Film Director's Network, held their show this year on December 14. KIM Tae-ri of YIM Soon-rye’s feel good drama Little Forest was handed the Best Actress Award while LEE Sung-min, playing the conflicted North Korean official in YOON Jong-bin’s acclaimed period espionage yarn The Spy Gone North, took home the Best Actor Prize.
Adding yet another accolade to his trophy chest was JANG Joon-hwan, who was honored by his peers with the Best Director Award for his hit period protest saga 1987: When the Day Comes (2017).
The Best New Actress Award went to KIM Da-mi for her debut performance in PARK Hoon-jung’s action mystery-thriller The Witch : Part 1. The Subversion. DOH Kyung-soo (aka D.O. of K-pop outfit EXO) won the Best New Actor accolade for his part in the hit fantasy epic sequel Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days. KANG Yun-sung was recognized as Best New Director for his gritty crime action-drama THE OUTLAWS, the top Chuseok holiday hit of 2017.
