Jang Keun-suk

Hallyu force of nature Jang Keun-suk has again proved his popularity by taking home the Best Male Star award at the 48th annual Paeksang Arts Awards on April 26.

Jang took the award which is presented to male actors in the film category for his role in last year’s hit movie “You Are My Pet.”
Jang secured 49.4 percent of the votes in a popularity survey, taking the No. 1 spot. He overtook Hallyu actors Gong Yoo and Shin Ha-kyun to claim the prize.

This isn’t the first time that the 24-year-old entertainer has been awarded a prestigious Paeksang award.
In 2010 he was awarded for his role in the movie “Itaewon Murder” (2009) and back in 2008 he took the prize for the Best New Male Talent for his role in the movie “Happy Life” (2007).
