Bong Joon-ho already has one Oscar under his belt! The Parasite writer and director took home the award for best original screenplay, and judging by this onstage moment, he was absolutely delighted. The South Korean film was the first Asian movie to ever win the award.
"We never write to represent our country, but this is very personal to South Korea," he said in his acceptance speech. He also took the time to thank his "wise wife" before passing the mic over. Congrats to Bong Joon-ho; we can feel his excitement through our screens!
