The Squid Game star dominated the award for Outstanding Lead Entertainer in a Drama Series during Monday’s event, making him the first champ in the classification from a non-English show and the primary Asian man to bring back home the gold. He beat down individual candidates Bob Odenkirk for Better Call Saul, Jason Bateman for Ozark, Jeremy Strong for Succession, Adam Scott for Severance, and Brian Cox for Succession.
Lee Jung-Jae turned into the very first Asian entertainer to win in the classification in the wake of bringing back home the Emmy award for Best Entertainer in a Drama at the current year’s Emmys for his exhibition in “Squid Game.”
“Much obliged to you to the TV Foundation, thank you to Netflix and thank you to the chief for making sensible issues we as a whole face show some major signs of life so creatively on the screen with an extraordinary content. Much obliged to you, ‘Squid Game’ group. Much obliged to you to everybody watching in Korea,” he said in the wake of accepting his award. He then, at that point, proceeded to rehash his discourse in Korean.

He was just the fourth Asian entertainer in any of the Emmy performance classifications and the first to win the drama award for a non-English talking job.
Jung-Jae scored the success over an intense record of contenders, including Weave Odenkirk of “Better Call Saul,” Jason Bateman of “Ozark,” Adam Scott of “Severance,” and “Succession’s” Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong.
Jung-Jae acquires his nomination after his breakout job in Netflix’s unexpected hit “Squid Game.” The series debuted on the web-based feature last September. Upon an effective appearance, the South Korean drama was recharged for Season 2 in June. This is the “Hunt” director’s most memorable Emmy nomination.
“Squid Game” has gotten 14 total Emmy nominations this year and brought back four Emmy awards at the current year’s Creative Arts Emmy’s before this month. Most strikingly, actress Lee You-mi brought home a gold statue for Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama Series for her job as Ji-Yeong.
HBO/HBO Max drove the opposition at the current year’s service with 140 nominations across all classifications. Netflix follows with 105.
“Succession” drives the accuse of projects of 25 nominations, while HBO’s “White Lotus” attached with “Ted Lasso” for second with 20. The Roy family-based dramedy is designated for Outstanding Drama this year, close by “Better Call Saul,” “Happiness,” “Ozark,” “Severance,” “Squid Games,” “Stranger Things,” and “Yellowjackets.”
