‘A Taxi Driver’ Continues Winning Streak at 38th Blue Dragon Awards
The 38th Blue Dragon Awards recently ended hailing A Taxi Driver as the Best Picture.
The 38th Blue Dragon Awards spread the accolades for its 2017 edition with popular actors Kim Hye Su and Lee Sun Kyun hosting the ceremony.
Interestingly, A Taxi Driver notched the Best Picture award but the directing honor went to Kim Hyun Suk for the film I Can Speak. It narrates the story of an elderly woman notoriously famous in the local office for filing complaints about wrongdoings that she notices in the community. She forms a heartwarming friendship with a civil service officer played by Lee Je Hoon.
Veteran Actors Song Kang Ho and Na Mun Hee took the acting honors for their respective movies. EXO’s Do was hailed as best new actor for his movie with Jo Jung Seok – Hyung.
One of the highlights of the film celebration was when Cha Tae Hyun (The Best Hit) paid respect to the departed actors of 2017 which includes his good friend Kim Joo Hyuk. On a lighter note, popular actor Jo In Sung accepted Do’s award on his behalf, citing he made a drunk promise for the junior actor who came in late because of EXO’s concert.
