SPEECH BY: BONG JOON HO and HAN JIN WON
[Ed. Note: Each winner spoke in a combination of English and Korean. Comments in Korean were translated onstage by translator Sharon Choi.]
BONG JOON HO:
[In English:] Thank you, great honor. [Via translator:]. Writing a script is always such a lonely process. We never write to represent our countries. [In English:] But this is very first Oscar to South Korea. Thank you. [Via translator:] I thank my wife for always being an inspiration to me. I thank all the actors who are here with me today for bringing this film to life. Thank you.
HAN JIN WON:
[In English:] Thank you director Bong and thank you my mom and thank dad. [Via translator:] As there's Hollywood in the U.S., in Korea we have Chungmuro. I'd like to share this honor with all the storytellers and filmmakers at Chungmuro. [In English:] Thank you, Academy.
