I came across an article about the Korean actress, Youn Yuh-jung, and was reading about her and the just released movie that she is in, 'Minari'. It looks to be a good one.

Youn Yuh-jung Comes to America

--- Quote ---The actress’s heart-shattering turn in Minari will likely get an Oscar nod. She’s been doing this too long to care.

This wouldn’t have happened in Korea, she thought. For one, she wouldn’t have been scheduled at 10 a.m. on the first day of a movie shoot only to be kept waiting. Imagine keeping Meryl Streep baking in the Oklahoma heat for four-to-five hours in the middle of July. But the force field of celebrity was gone. Here in the Ozarks, she wasn’t Youn Yuh-jung, the 73-year-old actress with a career that spans over half a century. On the set of Minari, she was an old Korean lady. “A Far East nobody,” she tells me, taking a long drag from a slim white e-cigarette. As in a classic American tale, she would have to start from scratch.
