The Korea Film Reporters Association recently published its list of winners for its ‘6th KOFRA Film Awards,’ and JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun was revealed to have won the Best New Actor award for the movie ‘Sea Fog,’ and making it his 5th rookie award for the movie at the same time.
As of now, Park Yoo Chun has won rookie awards at the ‘34th Korean Association of Film Critics Awards,’ ‘51st Daejong Film Awards,’ ‘15th Busan Film Critics Award,’ and the ‘35th Blue Dragon Film Awards.’ If one factors in the rookie award from the ‘4th Beautiful Artists Awards’ and the popularity award from the ’2014 Star Night Showbiz Awards,’ Yoo Chun has won 7 trophies just for ‘Sea Fog.’
‘Sea Fog’ was a major Summer blockbuster in Korea last year, and the movie had gained much attention for being directed by Shim Sung Bo. Park Yoo Chun took on the role of the young and innocent ship crew member Dong Sik, and acted opposite veterans like Kim Yoon Seok, Moon Sung Geun, Kim Sang Ho, and others. Park Yoo Chun was never held back by the ‘singer turned actor’ tag, and put on a sterling performance.
