Korean film “Secret Reunion” starring top actors Song Kang-ho and Gang Dong-won took the prize for best picture at this year’s Blue Dragon Film Awards held last Friday.

The action drama helmed by director Jung Hun had competed against “The Man From Nowhere,” “Moss,” “WOOCHI” and “The Housemaid.”

“Secret Reunion,” about the chance reencounter of a former South Korean intelligence official and North Korean spy, was the most-watched Korean film during the first half of 2010 with over 5.4 million moviegoers.

Meanwhile, director Kang Woo-suk of “Silmido” and “No Mercy” fame took the title for best director for his film adaptation of online comic series “Moss,” also the name of his pic.

Its lead actor Jung Jae-young claimed the award for best actor up against Won Bin for “The Man From Nowhere,” Park Hui-soon for “A Barefoot Dream,” Gang Dong-won for “Secret Reunion” and Lee Byung-hun for “I Saw the Devil.”
