Byung-hun will receive the newly-established Best Actor in Asia award for his acting in “Iris” 아이리스 at the Tokyo Drama Awards ceremony on October 25th in Tokyo, Japan. “The Best Actor in Asia award was made to celebrate an actor’s outstanding performance and contribution, who appeared in a foreign work”, said the Tokyo Drama Awards organizing committee.

The decision was announced on October 13th. “Lee was appreciated for not only his acting in the drama ‘Iris’, but also for the fact that the series has received acclaim from countries that aired the show”. Meanwhile, the well-received South Korean drama “Iris” will receive the Best Foreign Drama award at the ceremony.

In the TV drama “Iris”, lifelong friends Kim Hyun-Jun (Lee Byung-hun) and Jin Sa-woo (Jung Joon-ho 정준호), two Special Forces soldiers, each independently come into contact with an alluring woman by the name of Choi Seung-hee (Kim Tae-hee 김태희). The two of them do not realize at the beginning that they have fallen for the same woman and continue to aim for her affections.

The CEO of its production company Taewon Entertainment as well as Byung-hun will attend the ceremony to receive the awards in the Meiji Memorial Hall in Tokyo on October 25th.

The success of the series has led to a feature film and a sequel series set to follow in 2011. The following is a promotional video of “Iris”. Popular artist T.O.P, aka Choi Seung-hyun 최승현, also plays a role as an elite assassin in the drama.
