Lee Jun-Ki has been nominated for the "Rising Star" Award at the Louis Vuitton Hawaii International Film Festival.

Not only did he receive great popularity in Korea, but he is also a rising new Asian star and considered to be a top actor of the next generation. For these reasons, he was nominated for this award.

Lee Jun-Ki has also appeared in the movie 'Remember U 518', which received a nomination for the Grand Prix Award, the Golden Orchid (this is awkward…is this two awards or one award and one place??) . Lee Jun-Ki is to attend the film festival after he finishes filming his current MBC drama, 'Time with the Dog and Wolf'.

The HIFF is a large-scale film festival that started in 1981, becoming a celebrated event of a cultural exchange between Asia, the Pacific islands, and North America, drawing a large audience of over 70,000 every year.
