Sharon Choi (Korean name: Choi Sung-jae), who was the interpreter of Bong Joon-ho, came to the fore as a “hidden hero.”
Choi delivered the four awards to the audience smoothly at the 92nd Academy Awards on Oct. 10 (Korean time).,It also became a hot topic as an interpreter who made use of the witty gesture unique to Bong.
He is not only the Academy Awards ceremony, but also the person who conveyed Bong's words to the audience at various official ceremonies starting from the Cannes International Film Festival in May 2019.
Typically, he was vividly translating the words "You can enjoy much more movies if you go beyond the subtitle, the one-inch barrier" in Bong's award, which received the Foreign Language Award at the Golden Globe Awards on January 5th.
In May last year, at the Cannes Film Festival in France and the NBC "Tonight Show" in the US TV program, "I do not want to talk here as much as possible.,I do not know the story and I have fun to see ("parasites""). "
Bong praised Choi, who is showing himself and 'breathing', as "avatar of my language almost" and "Thanks to Sharon, all the campaigns were able to roll well."
In a backstage interview after the Academy Awards ceremony, the question was "Sharon Choi was a hot topic.",“(Choi) studied movies in Korea,” Bong said. “He is not a professional interpreter but a director.”,“I’m writing a few feature-length scripts now, and I’m really curious about the content personally,” he said.
In another interview, when the overseas media told Choi, "You are a star," Bong said, "I have a huge fandom now." He is perfect.,“We are always relying on him,” he praised.,The media that interviewed Bong said, "Sharon Choi is the MVP of the Oscar season," he said. "I hope he will attend the Oscar ceremony next time."
Choi is known to have made an independent film after majoring in movies.,It seems that more delicious interpretation was possible because of the affection and understanding of the movie.
