Lee Jung-jae posted a congratulatory message on the afternoon of the 10th along with still photos of Il-nam (Oh Young-soo) and Ki-hoon (Lee Jung-jae) playing marbles in the "Squid Game."
Lee Jung-jae said, "Congratulations, Ilnam teacher. It was an honor for all the scenes with the teacher. I expressed my congratulations with the witty phrase, "From the teacher's kkanbu."
Earlier, actor Oh Young-soo was named the winner of the Best Supporting Actor Award in the TV drama category at the 79th Golden Glove Awards held at the Beverly Hills Beverly Hilton Hotel in LA on the 10th (Korea Standard Time). This is the first time in history that a Korean actor has won an acting award at the Golden Glove Awards. Oh Young-soo, who played the role of Oh Il-nam, the first participant in Netflix's "Squid Game," competed with Billy Crudub and Mark Duplas, Kiera Culkin of "Seoksession," and Bert Goldstein of "Ted Rasso." However, "Squid Game" failed to win the TV Drama Award and the TV Drama Best Actor Award (Lee Jung-jae), which were nominated in addition to the Best Supporting Actor Award. Meanwhile, the Golden Glove Awards were held without spectators, red carpet events, broadcasts, and online live broadcasts in the aftermath of the boycott campaign caused by the risk of COVID-19 mutation and racism controversy.
