Korean film Council (KOFIC)'s Korean Film Scenario Market held the "2015 Grand Final Award" ceremony on January 5th. The winners are YOON Jeong-min of Book of the Dead, and LEE Da-gyeong of Judgement: He's Alive.
YOON's Book of the Dead is a mystery thriller set in Joseon Dynasty, depicting a serial murder case involving a secret book. The jury explained their choice as: "The author's imagination is well reflected in the scenario, and the completeness of the scenario and plausibility for filming are taken into account."
LEE's Judgement: He's Alive deals with a private revenge on a serial killer, done within the legal boundary. The jury announced that "each character is successfully positioned, and it is a fresh approach to situate private revenge within legal boundary, which may remind the audience of the social responsibility of a film."
Grand Final Award is a scenario competition by KOFIC which started in 2014. Every month Korean Film Scenario Market makes recommendations, and these recommended scenarios are further developed and finally evaluated.
