Four programs from major public network KBS have scored prizes at the 44th annual Houston International Film Festival, according to its broadcaster on Monday.

"Son of Man" and "Don't Cry For Me Sudan" both took home the platinum award under their respective categories of TV movie / drama and best documentary at the international film festival held at the Marriot Westchase Houston Hotel on April 16.

"The Slave Hunters" and "The Accidental Couple" scored wins as well, bringing home gold and silver, respectively, under the segment for best drama.

"The Slave Hunters," a 24-part mini-series which aired in the early half of last year, tells about slave hunter Dae-gil who makes a living by tracking down runaway slaves. The drama was named the best drama series at the 2010 Asian TV Awards last year.

"The Accidental Couple," starring Hwang Jung-min and Kim Ah-joong, is about a postman and a top actress who begins their relationship with a marriage contract that lasts for six months.

"Don't Cry For Me Sudan," starring Lee Tae-suk, tells the life story of Father John Lee who worked in the small village of Tonj in Sudan.

"Son of Man" is a story about love and redemption of a man who begins working as a police and faces the realities of life.

Founded in 1961, the Houston International Film Festival is one of the three original film fests in North America after San Francisco and New York. It is the only film fest that does not accept movies from major studios.

Hwang Jung-min returns as reporter

By Lee Hyo-won chungay@koreatimes.co.kr

Hwang Jung-min will display more of his knack for criminal investigation in the upcoming film “Moby Dik.”

After tackling the roles of a detective (“Private Eye”) and cop (“The Unjust), he will investigate cases as a news reporter.

Set in 1994, the story revolves around a mysterious explosion that occurs in the vicinity of Seoul. “This is my first time playing a reporter... It was difficult because investigative reporters seem to have a lot in common with detectives,” Hwang told the press in Jeong-dong, Tuesday.

In order to prepare for the part, he met national desk reporters and observed how they handle cases. “In the ’90s people used pagers, so I spoke to reporters that worked on the national desk at the time. I paid attention to details such as what type of pen and paper they used and even how often they changed clothes each week.”

The actor said he was immediately drawn to the intriguing script. “It’s fascinating how everything gets tangled up in a knot but unravels it step by step.”

The film marks the feature debut of director Park In-je, grand prizewinner of the 2003 Mise-en-Scene Genre Film Festival. The director said that the title was inspired by the Hemingway novel ― meaning here that some things are so large, like a whale, that it cannot be discerned when viewed from a close distance.

Other cast members include Kim Min-hee, Kim Sang-ho and Jin Gu.

“Moby Dik,” distributed by Showbox/Mediaplex, is slated for release on June 9.
