He just wanted to go to the washroom.

Lee Sun Gyun recently appeared on tvN‘s Summer Vacation with Choi Woo Shik, who was his co-star in the award-winning Bong Joon Ho film, Parasite.


And as a former co-star who attended various film award ceremonies with Choi Woo Shik, Lee Sun Gyun shared a never-before-told story of how Choi Woo Shik got locked out of the Oscars.

It all happened when Choi Woo Shik had to go to the washroom.

And when he decided to go during a 1-minute commercial break, that’s when everything took a turn.

There was a 1-minute commercial break, so he went to the washroom. But when you go to the washroom, the doors close.

Choi Woo Shik added that he pleaded to get back inside but there was no use.

At the entrance, I told them, ‘I’m in Parasite! I’m Ki Woo!’ I acted extra sad because Léa Seydoux was sitting beside me.

Luckily, he eventually got in and didn’t end up missing the whole thing.

But still!

That must’ve been terrifying.
