Chinese actress Tang Wei, wife of Korean filmmaker Kim Tae-yong, said that she wants to connect movie fans in Korea and China.

“I am very honored as an actress to be loved by Korean fans,” Tang Wei told reporters Monday. She is in Seoul to receive the Korea Image Stepping Stone Bridge Award from the Corea Image Communication Institute (CICI). The award recognizes exceptional achievements in spreading Korean culture to the world.

Along with Tang Wei, leading Korean cosmetics company AmorePacific and teenage short track speed skating sensation Shim Suk-hee were recognized for promoting Korea’s global image at CICI’s 11th annual Korea Image Awards at the COEX InterContinental Hotel in Samseong-dong, Seoul.

“As a winner of the Stepping Stone Bridge Award, I want to connect movie fans through my roles in diverse films,” she said.

Tang Wei, 35, rose to international stardom with “Lust, Caution” by Taiwanese-American director Ang Lee. She became widely known to Korean fans for her role in “Late Autumn” with Hyun Bin.

“Although I am still new to Korea, I am trying to learn the language and culture whenever I visit here. I think Korea has kept traditions so well especially within family gatherings,” she said.

Tang Wei was in Los Angeles last week to attend the world premiere of her new film “Blackhat” at TCL Chinese Theatre.
