Bong Joon-ho and Han Jin-won won best original screenplay at the Oscars on Sunday, making „Freeloader“ the first Asian film to win the prestigious writing award.

Director Joon-ho took the microphone first, thanking his ball and the film’s cast for „bringing this film to life“ – none of whom were nominated for acting presents.

„Writing a script is always such a lonely process. We never write to represent our countries,“ he said. „But this is quite personal to South Korea.“

Then, as his cowriter delivered his acceptance speech, Joon-ho stared lovingly at the trophy in his hands.

The earnest moment inspired a slew of heartfelt reactions.

„Parasite“ addicts immediately celebrated the „precious“ and „wholesome“ moment online, praising Joon-ho for his authenticity.

Joon-ho is also nominated for best director, and „Parasite“ is presented for best picture. If the film wins the latter, it’ll be the first foreign language film in Oscars history to take untroubled b in the top prize.

Watch the duo’s full acceptance speech below.
