Actor Hwang Jung-min was voted the actor of the year, according to a recent poll by Gallup Korea.
The poll was conducted on 1,700 people aged 13 or older nationwide for three weeks from Nov. 4 to 25, and asked respondents to choose the two most outstanding actors of the year.
Hwang received 21.2 percent of the votes to top the list.
He appeared in three films this year, and made a lasting impression each time as a prosecutor in the crime comedy "A Violent Prosecutor," as a shaman in the thriller "The Wailing," and as a corrupt politician in "Asura: The City of Madness."
Song Kang-ho, who starred in "The Age of Shadows," ranked second with 18.4 percent, while Gong Yoo came in third with 12.7 percent, Ha Jung-woo fourth with 11.4 percent and Yu Hae-jin fifth with 10.8 percent.
