Kim Nam-joo Wins Top Acting Award in China

Actress Kim Nam-joo has been named one of Asia's top 10 actors by China Entertainment TV. She attended an awards ceremony in Shenzhen, China last Saturday, marking the broadcaster's sixth anniversary, where she received the Grand Award, a top honor given to one of the 10 finalists.

Taiwanese actor Joe Cheng was Kim's biggest rival for the top prize, but she was able to secure the award thanks to the huge popularity of her latest drama, "My Wife is a Superwoman."

"I'm very delighted and honored to get such a warm response from all over Asia for my work in 'My Wife is a Superwoman,'" Kim said through her agency. "I'll try my best to honor the support of my fans by working even harder in the future."
