Aired live on the 9th, the 41st Blue Dragon Film Awards presented the Best Film Award to The Man Standing Next. “I really did not expect this,” said director Woo Min Ho as he rose to the stage. “Well I actually anticipated a little for the director’s award, but I did not prepare for this at all. The Blue Dragon Film Awards is amazing. This is the second time after winning the Best Film Award for Inside Men. I always win this award whenever I work with Lee Byung Hun,” he jokingly said. In his winning speech, he also said that “The Man Standing Next was a film where actors played a huge part. Thanks to their great performances, [I] am able to receive this award.”

The Best Male Leading Actor Award went to Yoo Ah In, who demonstrated great acting skills throughout Voice of Silence. He made his speech saying, “I recently talked about stage fright with Lee Byung Hun. Even being the great senior he is, he said that he gets nervous when he’s on this particular stage. He says that this stage is pressuring. I was able to reflect on myself after hearing him talk.” The actor continued, “I learned a lot from the seniors who are here right now, and you all mean honor to me. They have been paving the road for a long time so that I can grow my dream. I would like to thank you once again for this opportunity.”

Ra Mi Ran won the Best Leading Actress Award after making a solid presence as a top actress in Honest Candidate. Winning her first best actress award, Ra Mi Ran made her acceptance speech. “I was grateful for even being nominated because it’s a comedy film. Why are you giving me a prize and everything?” she said bursting into tears. Furthermore, she said, “I once won the Blue Dragon’s Supporting Actor Award and at that time I jokingly said that I would greet everyone with the Leading Actor Award next time. And I won the award right after being nominated. Perhaps our film has been more meaningful as we provided smiles last year, which was such a difficult time.” She concluded as she said that something unbelievable has happened. “I’m so thrilled to receive an award at the Blue Dragon Film Awards.”
