Actor Park Yoochun, also from the group JYJ, won the Rookie Award at the fourth Beautiful Artists Awards.
Park Yoochun received prize money of 20 million won (18,000 USD) along with his award at the Seoul Press Center International Ceremony Hall.
“I was happy when an article about my award also stated that I would be getting prize money,” confessed Park Yoochun. “All joking aside, the money isn’t as important as the fact that I’m actually standing here accepting this award, which I had not even dreamed of winning.”
“I was lucky to debut in a movie, and once I had a taste of acting for the big screen, I fell in love with it,” he added. “Thank you for awarding me with this honor, and I will use this to further my passion for acting.”
He claimed he would use his prize money “with his staff.”
Park Yoochun made his debut as “Dongsik” in the film, “Haemoo,” directed by Shim Sung Bo.

Member of trio band JYJ and actor Yoochun revealed his gratitude for receiving Best New Artist Award at the 4th Beautiful Artist Award ceremony held on Tuesday.
“I am too honored and grateful today to stand here and receive such a big award. I was also happy to know that I am receiving a lot of prize money. I plan to use it with the staff members,” Park said in his acceptance speech.
“After debuting on the big screen, I have been insisting on participating in movies rather than TV drama series. This is giving my agency a hard time on deciding my next work,” he added, revealing his passion for acting in more films.
The singer-actor was chosen to receive the award for playing the part of Dong-sik in the movie “Sea Fog.” Although it was his first challenge in the film industry, Park has received wide acclaim from viewers, directors and famous senior actors for his natural acting skills.
So far, Park has already won four Best Rookie Actor awards this year, and is aiming to seize another victory at the 35th Blue Dragon Film Awards.
The grand prize for the 4th Beautiful Artist Award went to actor Choi Min-sik, the hero of the hit film “Roaring Currents.”
