Netflix’s ‘Squid Game’ was the first non-English drama to receive the main award (Primetime) at the Emmy Awards, the most prestigious American broadcasting industry. Actress Lee Yoo-mi, who played the role of game participant Ji-young, won the Guest Actress Award in four categories.

At the 74th Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, USA on the 4th (local time), Lee Yoo-mi was selected as the recipient of the Guest Actress Award. The Guest Actress Award is given to an actress who has shown her outstanding performance in a lead role in a specific one of several episodes of a drama. In the play, Ji-young sacrifices for Dawn (Jeong Ho-yeon) in the 6th episode ‘Kanbu’, which is an episode of marbles. Lee Yu-mi left a strong impression by delicately expressing Ji-young, who has no regrets in her life.

Lee Yoo-mi is the first Asian national to win an acting award at the Primetime Emmy Awards. Lee Yu-mi beat out prominent American drama performers such as Hope Davis in the American HBO drama ‘Seok Session’. After the awards ceremony, Lee Yu-mi said, “I’m so happy. I can’t believe it. I will try harder than the weight of the top,” she said.

‘Squid Game’ also won the Stunt Performance Award, Visual Effects Award (‘VIPS’ edition), and Production Design Award (‘Kanbu’ edition). It won 4 out of 7 nominations. This is also the first non-English drama in history.

Established in 1949, the Emmy Awards are organized by the American Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (ATAS) and are called the Academy Awards of the broadcasting industry. The Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards are held before the Primetime Emmy Awards, which award awards for major categories of acting and directing, such as Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Director. This award is given to the production team in the arts and technology category, but also includes some prime-time acting awards.

At the Primetime Emmy Awards held on the 12th local time, Squid Game was nominated for △ Best Picture, △ Best Director and Screenplay (Hwang Dong-hyuk), △ Best Actor (Lee Jung-jae), △ Best Supporting Actor (Park Hae-soo, Oh Young-soo), and △ Best Supporting Actress (Jeong Ho-yeon). Prior to this, as it swept four categories including the Guest Actress Award, the possibility of winning major categories such as Best Picture and Best Actor is increasing.

‘Squid Game’ became the first Korean actor to win the Best Actor Award at the Golden Globe Awards in January this year for Oh Young-soo, the first Korean actor to win the Golden Globe Awards. He is writing a new history of Korean dramas one after another.
