Daniel Henney and Kim A-Joong named Korea's rising stars

Daniel Henney and Kim A-Joong were awarded Premiere Magazine's Rising Stars Awards at the 12th Pusan International Film Festival on Oct 6. It was the 3rd time the awards were handed out.

The stars were chosen based on their body of work for the past couple of years. Artistic merit, popularity, influence, star power and online poll results were also taken into consideration.

We are rising stars, people...if you have nuthin' good
to say, just talk to the hand!

During the intimate ceremony, the stars' close friends/colleagues presented the award to the winners.

Henney received his trophy from his My Father helmer Hwang Dong-hyuk. "This is a very special award," the 28-year-old model-turned-actor said. "It's for acting, it's an acting award." (Oh-kay Daniel, we got you the first time there - Liz)

Meanwhile, Korean (plastic) beauty Kim A-Joong received her award from her 200 Pounds Beauty co-star Kim Hyun-sook, who reportedly gave a lengthy speech complimenting the 25-year-old actress before presenting her the trophy.

Congratulations to both winners!

Congratulations to Daniel Henney and Kim A-joong!!

Since Henney can't really speak Korean fluently, he still managed to bag the award, he must have had some influence in the Korean entertainment industry. Kudos to him!

Kim A-joong has been pretty quiet after her 200 Pounds Beauty movie. Wonder what is her next project.
