Per Variety’s Twitter Lee Jung-jae’s big win for Best Actor for a Drama Series marks the first time in Emmys history that an Asian actor has taken home the award. Additionally, he’s only the fourth Asian actor to take home an acting Emmy win, making him equal parts incredible and surprising. In a stacked field that included actors such as Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”), Jason Bateman (“Ozark”) and Brian Cox (“Succession”), Jung-jae’s victory is no small feat.

Still, it’s kind of a testament to how underrepresented Asian television has been at the Emmys, but it seems like the tremendous popularity of “Squid Game” can’t be ignored. As of this writing, it remains the most popular Netflix show of all time, clocking up 1.65 billion hours of watch time in its first four weeks on the streamer, according to Variety. Hopefully this is a sign that not only are English audiences willing to watch non-English shows, but that the Emmys are expanding in scope and diversifying their winners’ circle. Either way, this is still a monumental victory for Jung-jae and for Squid Game.
