Rule #1 Pucheon Win

PUCHEON (South Korea) – Actors Shawn Yue and Ekin Cheng have won the Best Actor Award here for the Kelvin Tong movie Rule #1.

The award was announced at the 12th Pucheon International Fantastic Film Festival’s Award Ceremony on Friday (25th July 2008).

Singapore filmmaker Tong received the award on behalf of Yue and Cheng.

“The Korean audiences were very thrilled by Rule #1, and I am very grateful that Shawn and Ekin beat out a lot of high-profile competition to take the honours for Singapore and Hong Kong,” said Tong.

Rule #1 was also in the running for the festival’s top competition – the Puchon Choice Feature – which included this year’s Korean blockbuster The Chaser and Hollywood entry The Objective.

Rule #1, a horror thriller, sees Yue playing a rookie cop and Cheng as an alcoholic veteran in charge of a police department that handles supernatural cases.

Rule #1’s double-win marks the second time that Tong has scored at the Pucheon International Film Festival. In 2006, the award-winning director’s The Maid garnered the Best Asian Film Award.
