Eh I dont have the full list but the newspapers (HK Yahoo News, SINA and TW Yahoo News) said that “200 lb Beauty” is nominated for a total of 12 nominations, 1 more than “The Host”. The awards will be held next month.

  1. Daniel Henney??LOL…speechless on that..
    Radio Star is a good movie, wonder why they put it in the same league as 200 pounds of beauty. Dirty Carnival’s a good one too, Jo Insung is great there. and why not For Horowitz instead of 200 pounds of Beauty for Best Film?

  2. i remember reading somewhere where it mentioned that the daejong film festival is the korean version of the oscar? really?? if it is, then i’m speechless, i guess either they are out of nominees or they are just randomly choosing some actors to made the top 5 list looks complete…

  3. Anne,

    I’m not quite sure actually. I know there are 2-3 of these awards and I remember there’s another called Blue Dragon. I am now trying to search for the complete list coz Im missing Supporting nominees, Director, Screenplay, etc.


    Maybe they are running out of Newcomer for awards and yes, I have no idea why Daniel Henney is in that list!

  4. I found them – the Supporting Awards, etc.

    The full list is available here

    Anne, Lee Bum Soo is nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role in The City of Violence

  5. Thanks!

    Some of the nominees on certain categories doesn’t sound right, hmmm…

    Hyun Young for Best New Actress in that horrid movie The Perfect Couple? Daniel Henney? Huh?
