Parasite Is Now the First Korean Film to Win a Golden Globe

Director Bong Joon Ho is on a roll.

(SPOT.ph) South Korean film Parasite has been making rounds in the awards circuit—it claimed the highest prize at the Cannes Film Festival and it's also shortlisted for an Oscar. It's no secret that Bong Joon Ho's masterpiece is breaking barriers and there seems to be no slowing down: Parasite just won Best Motion Picture in a Foreign Language at the 77th Golden Globe Awards, making it the first South Korean film to earn the honor.

Parasite won over four other films—The Farewell, Les Misérables, Pain and Glory, and Portrait of a Lady on Fire—in the category. Still in disbelief over his victory, Bong holds the award in one hand, and he turns to his translator to express his sentiments: "Once you overcome the one-inch tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films." Bong later sums up his thoughts and says "there is just one language: the cinema."
