O Yeong-su from the hit Netflix show Squid Game has made history!

The 77-year-old South Korean actor has taken home the award for Best Supporting Actor in the TV division for his role as Oh Il Nam, or better known as player 001, in the popular show.

This makes O Yeong-su the first Korean actor to individually win an award at the Golden Globes! He won against Billy Crudup and Mark Duplass in ‘The Morning Show’, Kieran Culkin in ‘Succession’, and Brett Goldstein in ‘Ted Lasso’.

The actor shared some words through Netflix, following his win. He said:

"After hearing about the awards announcement, for the first time in my life, I told myself ‘I’m a decent guy’. It’s not ‘us within the world,’ but it’s ‘the world within us’ now.

"Embracing the scent of our culture and love for my family, I thank everyone over the world. I hope you live a beautiful life. Thank you."

Meanwhile, the show itself was nominated for Best Television Series - Drama. Plus, lead actor Lee Jung Jae was also nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in the same catagory.

Plus, if you haven't already heard, the creator of Squid Game is already in talks with Netflix about season two and three!

Fingers crossed season two drops some time this year.
