Veteran actress Youn Yuh-jung has been selected by an association of female critics as the recipient of this year's "Woman in Film award."
Youn in her late 60s was chosen in recognition of her passion for acting as she still takes up new challenges without fear even 50 years after her debut.
She was praised for her role in "The Bacchus Lady," released early October, which depicts the life of an elderly prostitute.
The awards ceremony will be held at a theater in Seoul on Dec. 7.
