Actor and singer Park Yoochun picked up a Rookie of The Year award from the Beautiful Artists Awards on December 9. The event, which was held at the Seoul Press Center International Ceremony Hall, awarded the star 20 million won (18,000 USD) in prize money too.

“I was happy when an article about my award said that I would receive prize money. Seriously, the money doesn't hold a candle to the fact that I’m actually standing here accepting this award. I never dreamed of winning it," Yoochun was quoted saying.

Park assured everyone that he would use the prize money with his beloved staff members.

He added, “I was lucky to debut in a movie [Sea Fog], and I when desired to act on the big screen, I fell in love with it. Thank you for honoring me with this award. I will use this to further my passion for acting.”

The I Miss You actor wrapped up his latest thriller series, Three Days, in May.
