South Korean black comedy Parasite shook the world Sunday after snagging away Hollywood’s biggest prize at the Oscars 2020.
Being the first-ever non-English film to win the best picture accolade at the Academy Awards, it was unquestionably a moment of pride for South Korea including those stars who had already been making waves around the world with their sheer talent: K-pop group BTS.
The widely-adored boy band took to their official Twitter to extend their well-wishes to director Bong Joon-ho and the rest of the Parasite team over the massive feat.
“Director Bong Joon Ho, I truly truly truly truly truly truly congratulate you.” The Korean boy-band addressed Parasite actor Choi Woo Shik in the hashtags saying “#WooshikSshi #ISawYouWipeAwayYourTears”.
The South Korean crime-thriller sent shock-waves beating American favourite 1917, with four awards out of six nominations on Hollywood’s biggest night of the year.
