Actor Cho Jae-hyun won the best actor award for his role in "The Weight," directed by Jeon Kyu-hwan, at the 17th Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal. The movie tells the story of a hunchback through his relationships with others.
Cho, who was greatly interested in the plot and appreciated the quality of the film, apparently decided to appear in the film for free.
"The Weight" received a restricted screening rating last November due to sexually explicit scenes. After a couple of re-edits, the film finally got an R rating in March.
