The 79th Golden Globe Awards was held on Sunday, January 9, with stars being honoured for their excellent work in 2021.

Yeong-su won the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role on Television for his role as Oh ll-nam, also referred to as Player 001.

According to CNN, his victory was announced at a private ceremony streamed online without any celebrity presenters and speeches.


Yeong-su isn’t the only thing about the series that’s made history. Squid Game became the most-streamed series on Netflix ever with 111 million views shortly after airing. It surpassed Bridgerton as the most-watched Netflix series in 2021. 

With so much success, season 2 of Squid Game is expected, though there’s no official word on what Netflix will do next.
