Actor Lee Jung Jae made history at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards as he became the first Asian actor and the first actor from a foreign-language show to win the award for lead actor in a drama.
The talented actor won for his impressive performance in Netflix‘s international hit K-Drama Squid Game, which was nominated for 14 Emmy awards. The hit show won other awards for stunt performance, production design, and special effects. The show’s creator, Hwang Dong Hyuk, also won the award for best drama series director, and actress Lee Yoo Mi won for outstanding guest actress.
