Celebrations were overwhelmed by social media in South Korea on Monday, after the black comedy film “Parasite” was awarded the first ever Oscar for the Asian country.

The director of the movie, Bong Joon Ho, said he was honored to receive the Best Screenplay award, the first of its kind to be awarded to a South Korean movie. The film also won the award for best international feature film.

Parasite and director Bong Joon Ho’s Twitter tweets topped South Korea as what became the most searched movie name on the local online platform Navre after the award was announced.

The satirical film dealing with the chasm between the rich and poor in South Korea was nominated for the best film, the best director and best production awards, as well as the best screenplay and best international feature film.

Although the film industry in South Korea is among the largest in the world, the Korean-speaking film has made unprecedented tremors on international markets.

After announcing the nominations in January, Bong said he saw it as a sign that language was no longer an obstacle to global success.

South Korean social media pioneers share a slow-motion video recording of the filmmakers celebrating on the red carpet.

We are holding a live broadcasting ceremony at the embassy, and we are eating japajuri,” US Ambassador to South Korea Harry Harris wrote on Twitter, referring to the pasta dish that the rich family was eating with the movie.
