Actor Gang Dong-won received an award for his performance in "Vanishing Time: A Boy Who Returned" at this year's New York Asian Film Festival last week.
"Thank you for inviting me to this film festival and giving me such a huge honor", Gang Dong-won said in his acceptance speech. "It was an uncommon genre, but many people worked hard together to make the film. I'm happy to be able to meet audiences in New York".
He is currently working on the new film "1987" about the 1987 pro-democracy movement in Korea, and preparing for another project based on the Japanese animated film "Jin-Roh" by Kim Jee-woon.
