    Director Lee Chang-dong's film "Burning" was named the best foreign-language film by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association on Sunday.

    Steven Yeun won best supporting actor for his performance in the movie.

    "Burning" shared the honor with the Japanese drama "Shoplifters," which won the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival, while "Roma" by Alfonso Cuaron received the best picture award.

    The Korean mystery drama, which is based on the short story "Barn Burning" by renowned Japanese writer Haruki Murakami, has been submitted to next year's Academy Awards for best foreign-language film.
