At the British Academy Film Awards, also known as the BAFTAs, held in London on Sunday, the Korean black comedy won awards in two categories -- original screenplay and film not in the English language. Park Chan-wook won the latter honor with his film "The Handmaiden" in 2018.
"I didn't expect this award at all, because this script was written in a foreign language", Bong said through an interpreter in his acceptance speech. "I once again would like to thank my amazing actors who actualized the dialogue and scenes that I wrote. I really believe that their body language and expressions are truly the universal language", he added.
The awards for best film and best director went to Sam Mendes' war epic "1917".
A day earlier, "Parasite" won the best original screenplay honor at the Writers Guild of America Awards in California, making it the first foreign film to do so.
