Director Park Chan-wook of “Determination to Break Up” to the U.S.Will Golden Globe be awarded?
Director Park Chan-wook of the movie “Decision to Break Up” left for the U.S. to attend the U.S. Golden Globe Awards.
According to Ambiguous Film and CJ ENM on the 4th, director Park Chan-wook boarded a flight to the U.S. on the 3rd in time for the 80th Golden Globe Awards to be held in Los Angeles (LA) at 10 a.m. on the 11th (Korea Standard Time).
He will also attend the Golden Glove Awards while working on his next film, “Collaborator,” in LA. Actors Park Hae-il and Tang Wei of “Decision to Break Up” are known to not attend the awards ceremony.
“Decision to Break Up” is nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Non-English-speaking Film (formerly Foreign Language Film). This is the third time a Korean work has been nominated for the Golden Globe Award since the movie Parasite and the drama Squid Game. ‘Parasite’ became the first Korean film to win a Golden Globe Award in 2020. In January last year, Oh Young-soo of “Squid Game” was the first Korean actor to receive the Best Supporting Actor award in a TV drama category.
“Decision to Break Up” competes for trophies in four non-English-speaking works, including “No Problem on the Western Front” (Germany), “Argentina,” “Close” (Belgium, France, Netherlands), and “RRRR” (India).
The Golden Globe Awards, organized by the Hollywood Foreign Journalists Association, is considered one of the two largest film awards in the United States along with the Academy Award. It is also called the “outpost of the academy” because it was held before the academy.
Last year’s 75th Cannes Film Festival director-winning film “Determined to Break Up” is a preliminary candidate for the International Film Awards at the 95th Academy Awards to be held on March 12 local time.
