Kim Dong Hwi and Kim Hye Yoon made significant speeches after winning the Blue Dragon Best New Actor and Actress award.
On November 25, the 43rd Blue Dragon Film Awards took place at the KBS Hall in Seoul. Kim Hye Soo and Yoo Yeon Seok hosted the ceremony for the fifth year in a row.
On this day, Kim Dong Hwi (“In Our Prime”), Mu Jin Sung (“Perhaps Love”), Seo In Guk (“Project Wolf Hunting”), Ong Seong Woo (“Life Is Beautiful – 2020”) and Lee Seo Jun (“Hansan: Rising Dragon”) vied for “Best New Actor”. In the end, the winner was Kim Dong Hwi.
Kim Dong Hwi said: “I thought the actors were just saying, ‘I really didn’t expect to get this,’ while watching TV shows every day. I came without thinking (that I would win). I shot In Our Prime three years ago. I was auditioning without a company, and then I was assisted by the general manager of the production company, the director, and even the elderly Choi Min Shik, so I finished the film well.
he continued “Having started my career as an actor, I feel like I’ve been living in anticipation of tomorrow with a nervous and restless mind. It hasn’t been a long process so far, but I think it will be a driving force to move forward as I reflect on my past life.”
The nominees for Best New Actress are Go Yoon Jung (The Hunt), Kim Hye Yoon (The Girl on the Bulldozer), Kim Shin Young (Decision to Leave), Shin Si Ah (The Witch: Part 2). The Other One”), Lee Ji Eun/IU (“The Broker”). It was Kim Hye Yoon who took home the trophy.
Kim Hye Yoon said: “I came as an award presenter three years ago. Watching the older actors, I was very nervous because I was seeing people I used to see on TV, but now I’m in the same place.”
she confessed “I was more afraid and worried about whether I would be able to handle it than I was happy, excited, and trembling while playing those days.”
Kim Hye Yoon continued, “I’ve been thinking a lot about whether I’m playing well or doing well, so there were a lot of question marks. It seems that on this occasion those question marks turned into exclamation marks. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this change.”
