Actress Youn Yuh-jung said she really wanted Hollywood star Glenn Close to win the award.
Youn Yuh-jung, the first Korean actress to win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, attended a press conference held at the Korean Consulate General in Los Angeles on the 26th (Korea time).
Youn Yuh-jung said, “I also talked with Glenn Close. One day when I went to England in the 2000s, I thought it was great when I saw the play “A Streetcar called Desire”. “I’m the same age as Glenn Claus, and I can’t play at that age, and I really wanted her to receive it.”
“I came to the periphery of the East at the Academy Awards. Have you ever been to an academy? Of course, Bong Joon-ho went, but he said.
Youn Yuh-jung also said, “I really wanted her to receive it. Other actors of ‘Minari’ next to me said they would get it, but I thought they wouldn’t. I didn’t expect it because I was betrayed a lot in my life, but my name was called. “I can’t even speak English, but I’m embarrassed because it’s a mess.”
Youn Yuh-jung played the role of grandmother Soon-ja in “Minari.” She won the supporting actress award after competing with Maria Bakalova in “Borat Subsequent Movie Film”, Glen Close in “Hillbilly Elegy”, Olivia Coleman in “The Father” and Amanda Seyfried in “Mank”.
