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 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.”
Best New Actors were JYJ singer Park Yoo-chun (“Haemoo”) and Im Si-wan (“Misaeng”), for film and TV, respectively. Best New Actresses were Chun Woo-hee (“Han Gong-ju”) and Go Ah-sung (“Heard It Through the Grapevine”), also for film and TV, respectively.
K-pop singer Krystal won Most Popular Actress in TV for “My Lovely Girl.” Meanwhile, the event’s sponsored fashion awards went to Lee Jung-jae and Shin Min-a.
