Yoo Ah-in for ‘Voice of Silence’ and Jeon Jong-seo for ‘Call’ won the Best Actor and Actress awards.
Yoo Ah-in said, “After playing a character without a line in ‘Voice of Silence’, he said, “Recently, I filmed a movie with senior Lee Byung-hun called ‘Games’, but there weren’t many lines there either. After that, I met a new work, and I am playing a character with a lot of lines. I think I’ve seen a lot of good things about the lack of lines in ‘Voice of Silence’. These days, I feel grateful to director Hong Ui-jeong for sending such a strategic scenario to a male actor.” He also said, “It’s really not as easy as saying awkward words when I was a rookie for the first time since I didn’t do the lines and then did it again. I have a long way to go in the future, but I want to live as an actor who can melt my existence into a movie, with or without lines, with or without a face, and who can impress the audience with that work,” he added.
Jeon Jong-seo said, “The young-sook I played in ‘Call’ was a character I’ve wanted to try at least once since I first started acting. Director Lee Choong-hyun of ‘Call’ who allowed me to meet such an interesting character, and senior Park Shin-hye who I worked with, as well as the staff who worked hard to make the film, and the audience and the public who loved ‘Call’, thank you.” She also said, “I will continue to come back with such fun acting and various characters. Thank you.”
Heo Jun-ho of ‘Mogadishu’ and Kim Seon-young of ‘Three Sisters’ won the Best Supporting Actor Award. Kim Seon-young said, “I received the Buil Film Award 4 years ago, and I received it again. I wonder what will happen if I don’t give it again.” Heo Jun-ho could not attend because he was abroad.
The award for Best New Actor went to Ha Jun for ‘Festival,’ and the award for Best New Actress went to Lee Yu-mi for ‘Adults don’t know’. Ha Jun said, “It’s an honor to receive a once-in-a-lifetime Rookie of the Year award at a film award with history and tradition. Thank you to the director and producer for allowing me to meet Kyung Man on ‘Feast Day’. Thank you to my family who always support me at home. University I thank the professor for reaching out to me when I was lost in the fog.”
Lee Yu-mi said, “It’s the first time I’ve ever received an award while doing something I love, but I’m grateful for the rookie award that I can only get once. Why are you doing this to me?” She continued, “I am grateful to the actors and staff who worked with me. I am also grateful to my family. I love you so much. I miss my grandmother a lot.”
Director Hong Ui-jeong of ‘Silent’ won the Best New Director Award. Director Hong Eui-jeong said, “It is an honor to receive the Best New Director Award at such a historic film festival. There are people who showed interest in small screenplays.” He continued, “I wonder if the film could have been made like this without actors Yoo Ah-in and Lee Jae-myung. Thank you to the actors.”
The male and female Star of the Year award went to Jo In-seong of ‘Mogadishu’ and Esom of ‘Samjin Group’s English TOEIC Class’ respectively. Jo In-sung, who was unable to attend the site due to his schedule, greeted him through a video. Jo In-seong said, “It is said that the Buil Film Awards celebrated their 30th anniversary this year. As this is the first film award, it is a proud award for me. He continued, “I want to give glory to the audience who loved ‘Mogadishu’ and loved the movie despite the corona crisis. I will greet you with a good work in the future.”
Esom said, “It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Busan, and I’m grateful for a good award.” He continued, “I remember the scene of ‘Samjin Group’s English TOEIC class’. I want to thank the director and I want to see the actors as well. I also thank the staff who always support me from behind.” She also added, “I want to work harder and visit the Buil Film Awards more often. I will return to my seat and enjoy it hard before returning.”
‘Mogadishu’ also won Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and Best Art. Representatives Kim Jung-min and Kang Hye-jeong were awarded the awards on behalf of the winners who could not attend the awards ceremony due to filming schedules. CEO Kang said, “It’s a pity I couldn’t participate in this beautiful award because I’m intensely filming my next film ‘Smuggling’.
