Youn Yuh Jung Wins Best Supporting Actress at the 2021 Oscars, Attends with Costar Han Ye Ri, and K-netizens Fete Her Win While Dissing Her Loser Ex-husband

It was yet another historic year for the Korean film industry at the Academy Awards, after last year Parasite winning Best Movie and Bong Joon Ho taking home Best Director, this year it was on the acting side as veteran actress Youn Yuh Jung won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Minari. The Parasite cast was not nominated for any acting awards at last year’s Oscars but this year Minari gave a nom to Youn Yuh Jung as well as male lead Korean-American actor Steven Yeun though many felt Han Ye Ri also gave an award winning performance but alas the Best Actress category was stacked. Youn Yuh Jung’s acting Oscar win is the first for any Korean actor or actress and she was so funny, humble, thoughtful in her acceptance speech. K-ent and netizens are understandably so proud and thrilled for her, and even more protective of this national treasure as the knives are coming out towards Youn Yuh Jung’s musician ex-husband. She left acting for a decade to move to the US with him to raise their kids and he cheated on her so she divorced him and came back to Korea and gradually resumed her acting career after first being blackballed for being a divorced woman. Now that loser ex is speaking out after her Oscar win saying he’s so proud of her, so regretful of cheating on her and the divorce, and saying her win is the best revenge against him for what he did to her. To which netizens and everyone dumped proverbial shit on him because her win has nothing to do with him and why is he inserting himself into her historic accomplishment even if to praise her. Just shut the f*&k up douchebag! Queen Yuh Jung is off to keep living her best life.
