The 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards were held last night in California, and history was made for the cast and crew of Netflix’s hit series Squid Game. Lee Jung-jae, who starred as protagonist Seong Gi-hun in the survival thriller, took home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. 

Backstage at the SAG Awards, he spoke to Deadline about how the success of the show would boost Korean films and television shows moving forward, something that’s already been reflected on Netflix’s viewership charts in a recent phenomenon dubbed ‘the Squid Game effect’.
