The 2014 Seoul International Drama Awards (SDA) was held yesterday at the Haeorum Theater in Korea, where Chinese actors Hu Ge and Joseph Cheng(Zheng Yuanchang) won the People’s Choice award alongside S. Korean hit actor Kim Soo Hyun.

Joseph Cheng, from Taiwan, said in his reception speech "It’s such an honor and pleasure to receive this award in Korea. I am very grateful that many Korean fans still remember me. I hope next time I will present you with a new drama much better than ‘Love Actually'”.

Mainland actor Hu Ge thanked the playwright of “Life Revelation” for creating his character, which helps him make a step closer to a more mature actor.

S. Korean actor Kim Soo Hyun, who shot to fame in Asia with the hit drama “My Love from the Stars”, says “I feel very happy to receive the award. The year 2014 is an unforgettable yet a very special one to me. I hope that from now on every year will be special. ” When asked how he can feel the popularity of the drama in Asia, he answered “In other countries where I hardly know the cultures and languages, I can feel that I am welcomed when all the people are calling me ‘Du Min Joon’(Kim’s role in the drama)”.

At this ceremony, the drama “My Love from the Stars” took home a total of three awards, including Kim Soo Hyun’s Outstanding Korean Actor Award, as well as Excellent Korean Drama and Outstanding Korean Drama OST Award.

This year’s grand prize went to “Kaboul Kitchen Season 2”from France, a drama that is highly praised for its originality, creativity and popularity. This is the first ever award for France.
