(The Chosun Ilbo) -- Actress Shim Eun-kyung won the best new actress award at the Tama Cinema Forum in Tokyo, an annual Japanese film festival organized by fans.

    Her management agency said Thursday that Shim received the honor on Nov. 17 for her role in the Japanese film "The Journalist," in which she plays a Japanese reporter who delves into a government corruption scandal targeting the Abe administration.

    Organizers said her acting goes beyond language and ideology and draws audiences into the movie.
