(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Dong-geun Lim = Director and playwright Ahn Gyeong-mo (51, Yeonwoo stage director) was selected as the winner of the 23rd Kim Sang-yeol Drama Awards, the Kim Sang-yeol Theater Sarang Association and Kim Sang-yeol Theater Sarang announced on the 11th.
In their review, the Kim Sang-yeol Award jury committee said, “The latest work ‘SWEAT Sweat: Sweat, Hard Labor’ is a masterpiece that deals with labor issues and racism. Rather than dividing humans into good and evil, they did not insist only on ethical justification, but allowed us to reflect on the universal contradictions and follies inherent in humans in three dimensions.”
‘Sweat’ was the 2017 Pulitzer Prize-winning work by playwright Lynn Nottage, and performed at the Myeongdong Arts Theater from June to July.
Ahn received the Popularity Award at the 2006 Seoul Theater Festival, and his work ‘Haemoo’ was selected in ‘The 7 Best Korean Dramas’ in 2007. In 2012, he won the Grand Prize at the Seoul Theater Festival for ‘And Another Day’.
The awards ceremony will be held at the Kim Sang-yeol Theater House of Love in Jongno-gu at 6 pm on the 25th.
On this day, a scholarship will also be awarded to Sohee Kim (25, Department of Theater, Department of Performing Arts, Chung-Ang University), who was selected as the recipient of the 17th Kim Sang-Yeol Theater Scholarship.
The Kim Sang-yeol Drama Award was established in 1999 to honor and inherit the artistic spirit and love of theater of Kim Sang-yeol (1941-98), a playwright and director. Special attention is paid to those who play both playwrights and directors, and the award is awarded to those who match the activities and spirit of the deceased.
