Actress Youn Yuh-jung, who won the Oscar “Supporting Actress Award”, opened the second part of the 42nd Blue Dragon Film Awards.

Youn Yuh-jung: "Why BTS and Squid Game are in the spotlight? K-contents have always been good, it's the world that just suddenly pays attention to us"

On this day, Youn Yuh-jung said,“There has been so much confusion within this year. However, during an interview with the British newspaper The Guardian, a reporter asked me, ‘What do you think is the reason for Korean popular mass arts, such as Parasite, BTS, and Squid Game, to have suddenly been in the spotlight globally?’. In fact, there have always been good movies and dramas in Korea. So I replied, saying that it is the world that just suddenly pays attention to us.”

Then, she said, “Let me take responsibility for what I said. I hope that you all, who are making a lot of good movies and dramas for audiences to look forward to, can communicate and share them with people around the world. That’s my wish.”
