Actress Park Shin-hye took home the Most Popular Actress award in film at the 51st Paeksang Arts Awards, Tuesday. Her previous co-stars Lee Min-ho and Lee Jong-suk took home the Most Popular Actor awards in film and TV respectively.

Park, who won the award for the period film "The Royal Tailor," co-starred with Lee Min-ho in "The Heirs" and Lee Jong-suk in "Pinocchio" -- both successful TV dramas.

Lee Min-ho won his award for the crime noir film "Gangnam 1970." Lee Jong-suk won his award for the TV drama "Pinocchio," though he was not present to pick up the award.

The Most Popular Actor and Actress awards are decided through a public month-long online vote. Lee and Park also took home both honorary iQiyi Star Awards, which were specially included this year.

Both stars, however, missed out on the major awards -- Best Actor in the film category and Best Actress in the TV category, for which they were respectively nominated for "Gangnam 1970" and "Pinocchio."

The Best Actor in film award was shared by Lee Sun-kyun and Jo Jin-woong, both for the crime film "A Hard Day," and the Best Actress in TV award was instead won by Song Yun-ah for "Mama."

The Grand Prizes in film and TV went to actor Choi Min-sik, the star of Korea's best performing film of all time, "The Admiral: Roaring Currents," and TV producer Na Young-seok, who produced entertainment programs "2 Days & 1 Night," "Grandpas Over Flowers" and "Three Meals a Day."
