  • [2009-12-24]
  • On Dec. 23, Bae Doo-na’s entertainment agency announced that Bae has won the Japanese Academy's best actress award for her role in "Air Doll."
     




    The agency stated that Bae won the award for best actress in a leading role given by the Japanese Academy, which has the highest authority in the Japanese film industry. The award ceremony will be held on March 5, 2010.

    As a consequence, Bae joins five other best actress award winners as nominees for the very best actress in a leading role award.

    The agency also stated that Bae is the first person to win the Japanese academy award not only as a Korean actress, but also as a foreign actor/actress performing in Japanese films.

    The Japanese Academy chooses five best awards/persons in each main category, and then on the day of the Japanese Academy Awards, the winner of the very best award for each category is selected among the five winners of the best awards.

    Awards for the best actress in a leading role were given to Bae along with Ahyase Haruka, Herosye Ryoko, Masta Gagoo, and Miyajaki Ahyoyee. They will compete for the award of very best actress in a leading role.

    "Air Doll," the second Japanese movie for Bae, was released on Sep. 26 in Japan, and whole movie theaters were sold out of tickets in fifteen days. A huge hit, the movie played for a long time and the number of movie screens was expanded from 30 to 53. This rarely happens in cases of art films such as "Air Doll."
