Actor Kim Soo-hyun has received the top prize at the KBS Drama Awards 2015 for his excellent role in "Producers," a workplace drama set in the entertainment department of a fictional KBS.

   Kim, who played rookie producer Baek Seung-chan in the 15-part series drama, which ended in June, also grabbed two other awards -- International Netizens' Award and Best Couple Award.

   Kim rose to stardom by appearing in the fantasy-romance drama "You Who Came From the Stars," which tells the story of an alien from outer space who falls in love with a top actress.

   The hit drama series rapidly gained wider audience appeal in China, with actress Jun Ji-hyun becoming a household name among young Chinese people. (Yonhap)
