The 36th Blue Dragon Film Awards, one of the major film award ceremonies in Korea, was held at Grand Peace Palace at Kyung Hee University in Seoul on Thursday.


Despite the chilly weather with snow flurries, celebrities dazzled on the red carpet and in front of the photo wall ahead of the event. The Best Film Award went to “Assassination,” a major box office hit this year, while Yoo Ah-in and Lee Jung-hyun grabbed the spot for the best actor and best actress category, respectively.

“Even now, this prize feels unfamiliar to me,” Yoo was quoted as saying. “Thanks to all the love people gave toward the film ‘Assassination’ and ‘The Throne,’ I could stand here and receive this honor of an award.”

“Rather than moments filled with happiness and pride, there were many moments filled with embarrassment and bashfulness. I will continue my career as an actor who grows based on continuous self-reflection,” added Yoo, who received a warm hug from “The Throne” costar Song Kang-ho, while getting down from the stage.

Lee, the protagonist in film “Alice in Earnestland,” shed tears after her name was called. “I didn’t expect to be selected for this award due to a series of outstanding and skilled senior actress candidates. I’m really thankful for the award,” she said.

The Supporting Actor Award was presented to Oh Dal-su of “Ode to My Father” and the Supporting Actress Award went to Jun Hye-jin of “The Throne.” The Newcomer Actor Award was given to Choi Woo-shik of “Set Me Free” and the Newcomer Actress Award went to Lee Yoo-young of “The Treacherous.”

In total, awards in 18 categories were handed out during the night, which also included awards for best cinematography, technical skill, screenplay, director and editing.

The Blue Dragon Film Awards kicked were first held in 1963, aiming for the greater development of high quality Korean movies.
