Actress Youn Yuh-jung picked up more gongs for her supporting role in "Minari," continuing her award-winning streak overseas that started late last year.
Youn won Best Supporting Actress awards from both the San Francisco Bay Area Film Critics Circle and the St. Louis Film Critics Association on Monday.
She has now amassed more than a dozen awards in the U.S. with her appearance in the film, earning rave reviews from critics and jurors there.
Directed by Korean-American Lee Isaac Chung, the film tells the warm-hearted story of a Korean family who move to the U.S. in the 1980s and their struggles to settle in a small town in Arkansas. Youn plays the eccentric grandmother in the family.
Her successful award-season run is raising hopes that she could be one of the supporting role nominees and even a strong contender to win at the upcoming Oscars in late April.
