Safe! 'Squid Game' Makes History at the 28th SAG Awards


    'Squid Game' managed to beat several big series, such as 'Loki' to 'Succession'

    No kidding, the South Korean series won three wins at the 28th SAG Awards.

    The 28th Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards took place on February 27 local time in Santa Monica, California.

    Not content with just being the most popular show on Netflix in history, 'Squid Game' went on to win many SAG awards, including Best Actor, Actress and Stunt Ensemble in a Drama.

    Earlier on January 12, 'Squid Game' had made history by scoring four nominations for the 28th SAG Awards and becoming the first non-English TV series to be nominated for the award.

    Lee Jung-jae and Jung Ho-yeon each won for the Outstanding Performance in a Drama Series nominations , in the male and female categories.

    With this victory, the two became the first South Korean actors and actresses to win an award in the drama series category. In addition, they are also the first Asian star to do so.

    In his victory speech, Lee Jung-jae thanked all the viewers who loved the series and the 'Squid Game' team. Meanwhile Jung Ho-yeon also thanked everyone who had made his dream come true and to the 'Squid Game' team.

    Furthermore, 'Squid Game' also won the Outstanding Action Performance nomination by Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series , against other nominees 'Cobra Kai,' 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,' 'Loki,' and 'Mare of Easttown.' Through this category, 'Squid Game' got a total of three wins from their four total nominations.

    Lee Jung-jae juga berhadapan dengan Brian Cox (‘Succession’), Billy Crudup (‘The Morning Show’), Kieran Culkin (‘Succession’), dan Jeremy Strong (‘Succession’). Sementara itu, Jung Ho-yeon melawan Jennifer Aniston (‘The Morning Show’), Elisabeth Moss (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’), Sarah Snook (‘Succession’), dan Reese Witherspoon (‘The Morning Show’).

    When asked about the possibility of a second season of the series, the best actor, Lee Jung-jae then said that the creative team was working out how the second season would bring the characters back, after most of them were killed by the game.

    One of Jung-jae's ideas is to bring the story to the masked men whose role is to save everyone who is killed as quickly as possible and perform surgery on them to keep them alive. Is that possible?

    But again, congratulations to the cast of 'Squid Game'!
