On the January 13 broadcast of JTBC’s “Newsroom,” Lee Jung Jae appeared for a video interview where he discussed the historic nominations that “Squid Game” received for the 28th Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards and the overall success of the series.

At the 28th SAG Awards, “Squid Game” is nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series and for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series, making the show the first non-English language TV series ever to be nominated for an award. Additionally, Jung Ho Yeon is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, while Lee Jung Jae has received a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series.

Lee Jung Jae commented, “This is such an honor. These are the kind of awards that I also only ever heard about through the news, so this is very meaningful, and I’m extremely happy. The actors and ensemble of ‘Squid Game’ as well as Jung Ho Yeon were nominated. Even our action team was nominated so you could say that all our actors were nominated, which means this has to be a happy event.”

When asked which award he most wishes to win, Lee Jung Jae answered, “I want to receive the Best Ensemble Award. The Best Ensemble Award is as meaningful as the Best Picture Award or Director Award, so I really want to receive it.”

Earlier this week, Lee Jung Jae’s “Squid Game” co-star Oh Young Soo became the first Korean actor to win Best Supporting Actor at the Golden Globes. Lee Jung Jae commented on his co-star, sharing, “He is a warm senior [actor] who really cherishes his juniors and gives good advice. I could really feel his depth and wisdom on set to the point where I would wonder how he prepared for each scene. I hope to become an actor like him. As I watched him meticulously prepare each line and movement, I thought that I wanted to take after him.”

Lee Jung Jae also touched on the impact that Korean entertainment has had recently on a global scale. “Especially after ‘Parasite’ and ‘Minari,’ the level of interest in Korean culture was really high. I felt that people overseas were gaining first-hand experience with the food and culture as well as consuming and appreciating Korean content like K-pop, films, and dramas. People have so many questions. As a South Korean citizen, I’ve been feeling a lot of pride, and I’m just thankful.”

 

After the nominees for the SAG Awards were announced, Lee Jung Jae also took to his personal Instagram account to share a message of gratitude.

Vincenzo” aired its final episode!

Vincenzo

It’s been a few weeks now since “Vincenzo” aired its final episode. Many fans were torn and emotional about having to move on from Vincenzo and his Geumga Plaza crew. The series put viewers on an emotional rollercoaster, and although it may be hard to move on, there are a lot of K-dramas out there that might be able to help lessen this pain. If you loved “Vincenzo,” here are some other shows you can check out.

Writer Park Jae Bum

Vincenzo

Park Jae Bum has been writing K-dramas for over 10 years now, and his repertoire is a successful one. There was a lot of anticipation and high expectations when it was announced that he would be coming out with a mafia-based K-drama and that the leading man would be none other than Song Joong Ki. If you liked the large supporting crew and humor that was in “Vincenzo,” it is definitely worth it to check out some of his other hit K-dramas.

“Good Doctor”

Vincenzo

“Good Doctor” stars Joo Won as Park Shi On, a doctor who has autism. Although he is considered to have the social awareness of a 10 year old, he is a genius and becomes a successful pediatric surgeon. He is put in a hospital with Kim Do Han (Joo Sang Wook), another pediatric surgeon, and the two often argue about various cases.

The series was not only a huge success in South Korea, but it also gained international recognition; the U.S. did a remake of it and it recently got renewed for its 5th season. Park Jae Bum also won the Best Writer award at the Korea Drama Awards in 2013 and a lot of the cast was able to receive best actor awards that same year. One of the most notable aspects is that the drama was given a plaque and award for raising awareness about autism.

“Good Manager”

Vincenzo

Another massive success from Park Jae Bum was “Good Manager.” The series stars Namgoong Min as Kim Sung Ryong, a former accountant for gangs who stumbles into working as the chief of accounting in a big company. He fights to keep the company afloat while meeting friends and enemies along the way.

 

The series started off strong and the ratings only continued to climb with each week. Viewers couldn’t get enough of Namgoong Min’s quirky character as well as his budding bromance with Seo Yool (Junho). The bromance between the two became a hot topic, and they even snagged the best couple award at the KBS Drama Awards in 2017.

The talented and beautiful Jeon Yeo Been

Vincenzo

For those who have watched Jeon Yeo Been’s past works, it’s no secret that she’s a phenomenal actress who is finally getting the recognition she deserves. Her role as Hong Cha Young in “Vincenzo” was very quirky with her spurts of dancing and higher-than-life personality – she did not disappoint. If you’re looking for more of Jeon Yeo Been, these are some of her other projects to check out.

“Melo Is My Nature”

Jeon Yeo Been stars in “Melo Is My Nature” as Lee Eun Jung, a woman who is 30 years old and a director of documentaries. She has two best friends, Im Jin Joo (Chun Woo Hee) and Hwang Han Joo (Han Ji Eun). The series documents the hardships of life and love as these three women all face various obstacles together.

 

Probably the most notable drama of Jeon Yeo Been before “Vincenzo” was “Melo Is My Nature.” Her character from the latter drama is very different from that of Hong Cha Young. Lee Eun Jung is calm, dark, and has a very quiet but strong demeanor. Her character in this series was the one that caught the eyes of many, thanks to her subtle, but strong and impressionable role. It’s an underrated drama that was made memorable as a result of the cast and their incredible acting!
