South Korean actor O Yeong-su won the Golden Globe award for Best Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Series, Limited Series, or Television Movie, for his puzzling role as Oh Il-nam or Player 001 in the hit Netflix drama “Squid Game.”

The 77-year-old actor won South Korea’s first Golden Globe, defeating the likes of Billy Crudup (“The Morning Show”), Kieran Culkin (“Succession”), Mark Duplass (“The Morning Show”), and Brett Goldstein (“Ted Lasso”) over the Best Supporting Actor in Television title. Player 001 is an old and weak man who is later revealed as the deadly game’s mastermind. “I feel like I’m floating on air. It makes me think, ‘I need to calm down, organize my thoughts, and hold myself back right now,’” O said in a statement after he was announced as a winner. O is one of South Korea’s greatest stage actors. He has appeared in more than 200 stage productions since 1963 and won many awards. The Golden Globe winners were announced at a 90-minute private ceremony on January 9 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California, with no celebrity presenters and speeches.
