LEE JUNG JAE IS THE FIRST ASIAN MALE ACTOR TO WIN SAG AWARD

Shouldn't have taken this long tbh.

Lee Jung Jae won the award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a drama series at the 28th 'Screen Actors Guild Awards' on February 27th for his role in Squid Game. Lee Jung Jae is the first Asian male actor to receive a SAG nomination and win, as well as the first Asian male actor to win the award.


"Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is a truly monumental event that has occurred in my life "Lee Jung Jae stated as he accepted his award on stage. "Well, I wrote a long list of thanks, but I doubt I'll be able to read it all."


He went on to say, "Without further ado, I'd like to express my gratitude to the SAG-AFTRA awards and to the global audience for their support of Squid Game. Additionally, I'd like to express my gratitude to the Squid Game team."
