Hallyu star Bae Yong-jun was nominated for a Cultural Medal and, according to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the actor’s eligibility is currently under review by the State Council and president.

The Ministry of Culture has recognized Bae Yong-jun’s role in introducing Korea’s popular culture to the world through the Hallyu phenomenon following the success of his TV drama “Winter Sonata.” Bae is one of 25 nominees for the Cultural Medal.

If Bae Yong-jun is chosen as the recipient of the honorable medal, he will receive the Cultural Medal at the “2008 Culture Day” event held at the Arts Center on October 18th in Cheongju, North Chungcheong province.

Established in 2004, the Cultural Medal is a government commendation awarded to figures whose invaluable efforts have paved the way in an area of culture.

Actress Lee Young-ae was the recipient of the 2007 Cultural Medal for her cultural influence on the Hallyu phenomenon through the TV drama “Jewel in the Palace.”
