    Ha Jung-woo has received a cultural award from the Italian city of Florence for his contribution to the film industry as an actor and director.

    He attended the 16th Florence Korea Film Fest there last week.

    Ha was given the "Key to the City," which shows the city recognizes the winner of the award as an honorary citizen.

    He is the second Korean honored by the city after director Park Chan-wook, who received the award last year.

    Florence Deputy Mayor Cristina Giachi said Ha had enriched the film industry with his distinguished work as both an actor and director over the past 15 years, and his efforts had won him many fans in Italy as well.
