Senate resolution hails Kathryn Bernardo’s win at Seoul International Drama Awards
MANILA, Philippines — A measure congratulating and commending Kathryn Bernardo for being named Outstanding Asian Star at the Seoul International Drama Awards 2023 has been lodged in the Senate.
Senate Resolution No. 810 was filed Monday by Senator Lito Lapid.
“Kathryn Bernardo, a talented and accomplished Filipina actress, has consistently showcased her exemplary skills, dedication, and passion in the field of acting, captivating both local and international audiences, including Filipinos residing abroad,” the resolution reads.
She received the award in South Korea last September 21.
According to the resolution, Bernardo’s win does not only mark a “significant milestone in her career” as it also brings “immense pride to the Filipino people.”
“This remarkable achievement by Ms. Bernardo underscores the importance of recognizing and nurturing Filipino talents on the international stage, demonstrating that our artists possess the capability to excel and compete globally,” Lapid said in the resolution.
The Outstanding Asian Star awards are given to actors from six countries in Asia — Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand and the Philippines — where each country would submit a list of nominees.
The actors only compete against fellow nominees from the same country. JMS
