The first K-drama to win the Breakthrough Series award at ‘The 2021 Gotham Awards’

‘Squid Game’ has created history yet again! Cast members Lee Jung Jae and Jung Ho Yeon, as well as the drama’s director Hwang Dong-Hyuk and the production company’s CEO Kim Ji Yeon, attended the 2021 Gotham Awards in New York City.

The cast of ‘Squid Game’ stormed the stage after the drama won Breakthrough Series at the Gotham Awards, making it the first Korean drama to do so.

The 2021 Gotham Awards

Lee Jung Jae was nominated for Outstanding Performance in a New Series and the drama was nominated for Breakthrough Series – Over 40 Minutes. Ethan Hawke’s ‘The Good Lord Bird,’ British thriller ‘It’s a Sin,’ ‘Small Axe,’ ‘The Underground Railroad,’ and HBO’s satirical comedy-drama ‘The White Lotus’ were among the strong contenders for the award. Sadly, Lee Jung Jae did not win the Outstanding Performance in a New Series award; instead, Ethan Hawke was honored for his depiction in ‘The Good Lord Bird.’

Meanwhile, ‘Squid Game’ fans take delight: the popular survival series has been extended for a second season! After months of speculation and discussion among die-hard followers, PD Hwang Dong-Hyuk announced the news. Seong Gi Hun (played by Lee Jung Jae in the first season of the drama) will return to the screens to “do something for the world,” according to Hwang Dong-Hyuk. So, we’re very excited about this development.
