Actor Lee Byung-hun will receive the Asia Star Award at the 5th Asia Model Festival Awards, Friday evening in Seoul, said the Korea Model Association.

Lee will take home the award in recognition of his contribution to boosting cultural exchanges through acting as well as his stint as a model.

The 39-year-old most recently appeared in the Hollywood movies ``G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra'' and ``I Come with the Rain.'' He also made headlines for his role in the blockbuster TV series ``Iris,'' for which he received the Grand Prize at the 2009 KBS Acting Awards. He was also invited to appear on CNN's ``Talk Asia,'' which highlights Asian stars, as its first guest in 2010.
