↪ [+198 / -2] I need 8 vongole pasta!! (t/n: they're making a joke about Lee Sun Kyun's role in the drama 'Pasta')

2. [+4459 / -61] Is this like when a country that couldn't even make it to the finals of the World Cup but won the World Cup during their first appearance in the games??
↪ [+945 / -14] Yup, it's like that

3. [+3716 / -96] It's really amazing - the country's economy is currently at a risky state and the coronavirus was putting a damper on it but with news like this, as a fellow Korean, I'm very proud and happy. Congratulations to the director-nim and the rest of the cast

4. [+2605 / -17] I seriously feel like if Choi Woo Shik wasn't able to attend the event, it will forever remain as regret. He's smiling that brightly, I'm happy with them. Thank you for your consideration of Korean movie history and hit daebak!

5. [+1144 / -22] Lee Sun Kyun ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㄱㅋ

4. [+488 / -16] I was watching while laying down and then stood up while clapping!!!! (t/n: mood LOLOLOL I was watching with my mom and when they won 'Best Picture', we screamed LOL) 

5. [+262 / -8] Wow daebak

y'all know that this is one of my all-time fave films ㅠㅠ
I'm so happy for Bong Joon Ho, the cast, the staff, and Korean cinema!
Definitely check out the movie if you haven't already, it's best to go into it without knowing anything - don't watch trailers!
Also! I'm so glad that Jang Hye Jin and Park Myoung Hoon were finally able to join the rest of the cast at an awards show, they must've been really busy with filming 'CLOY'.
