Actress Jeon Do-yeon's career in film has been honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Far East Film Festival in Italy.
Jeon received the Golden Mulberry award at the festival's opening in Udine on Friday.
In its 21st year, the annual event is a leading European festival dedicated to Asian cinema. It runs until May 4.
"I'm not sure if I deserve it. But I will try to live up to the award's expectations," Jeon said.
Her latest movie "Birthday," which was inspired by the 2014 ferry disaster in Korea that took the lives of over 300 people, opened the festival. In the film, she plays a mother who loses her son in the disaster.
