Lee Seo Jin, Jung Yu Min, Park Seo Joon, and Choi Woo Shik congratulated You Yuh Jung’s recent feat.
Lee Seo Jin wrote, “As I’ve said many times, I knew that you would win the award. The last time I saw you, you told me not to get your hopes up, but I congratulated you anyway. When you return home safely, I’ll be waiting for you and me to get together and dig into your favorite white wine and the beer you just became a model for.”
“Congratulations on your award. Even during Youn’s Stay, you were such a respectful person. And I’m sure you were no different when you were filming for Minari,” said Park Seo Joon. “I think that’s why Soon Ja was so affectionate and lovely. I sincerely congratulate you on winning the Oscar today, and I hope you stay healthy. Once again, congratulations.”
“Congratulations on your Oscar trophy. I am even more happy and proud that you were the first Korean actor to win the award. I hope you stay healthy and work on more works in the future. Congratulations,” wrote Jung Yu Mi.
Choi Woo Shik also left a heartfelt message, saying, “I sincerely congratulate you on winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. While watching the ceremony live, everyone wholeheartedly waited for the best result. And watching you made me a little choked up. Always stay healthy, and I hope you continue your vibrant career. Once again, congratulations on winning the award!”
