At the Busan International Film Festival this year, Disney+ APAC (Asia–Pacific) Originals received eight awards at the 2023 Asia Content Awards & Global OTT Awards ceremony.

The superhero series based on a webtoon, Moving, won six awards including the prestigious Best Creative Award – an honor for content that has delivered the most notable achievements among the nominations, as well as Best Visual Effects. Screenwriter Kangfull received the Best Writer award, and cast members Ryu Seungryong, Lee Jungha, and Go Younjung brought home the awards for Best Lead Actor, Best Newcomer Actor and Best Newcomer Actress respectively.

Gannibal star Yuya Yagira was presented with the Asian Excellence Award for his outstanding performance in the series as police officer Daigo.

Taiwan Crime Stories’ Hsueh Shih-Ling was awarded with Best Supporting Actor.

Moving has had record breaking success, recently becoming the most viewed series finale ever on Disney+ (based on views calculated by total stream time divided by runtime in the first 5 days streaming on Disney+) across the Asia-Pacific including Korea, the Philippines and Taiwan.

Gannibal also had record breaking success as it became the most watched locally produced original series on Disney+ in Japan based on hours streamed in its first month since its premiere, and the show has been recently renewed for a second season.
