The film received “He Can Do, She Can Do, Why Not Me” Humanitarian Award and the Special Mention Award for its lead actor Song Kang Ho along with Best Picture at the festival which recently closed in Los Angeles.

The Korean period drama will also represent South Korea in the foreign film category at the 90th Academy Awards which will be held in March next year.

The film was a huge hit at the local box office, selling more than 12 million tickets after it opened in August.
