According to the film industry on the 5th (Korea Standard Time), Jung-jae Lee will not attend the 2022 Golden Glove Awards scheduled for the 9th. Jung-jae Lee was nominated for the best actor award in the TV drama category for Netflix's "Squid Game" at the awards ceremony. In addition, "Squid Game" was nominated for the best television series candidate and "Kkanbu" Young-soo Oh for the best supporting actor award. It is the first time in history that a Korean drama has been nominated for the Golden Globes, drawing attention at home and abroad.
However, Jung-jae Lee and other Squid Games will not attend the Golden Glove Awards. This is due to the aftermath of Hollywood's boycott of the Golden Glove.
Earlier in February, when the corruption scandal of the Hollywood Foreign Journalists Association, which organizes the Golden Globes, was revealed, a boycott took place in Hollywood. It has been revealed that the Hollywood Foreign Journalists Association has paid illegal wages, and none of the association's members are black. It was also revealed that black actors such as Netflix's "Bridgeton" had refused to hold press conferences for works that played major roles, sparking controversy over racism.
At the Golden Glove Awards, one of the representative awards ceremonies in the U.S., "Parasite" won the Foreign Language Film Award for the first time in Korean film history in 2020. Then, in 2021, "Minari" won the Foreign Language Film Award. However, "Minari" was produced by a U.S. production company and directed by Korean-American director Isaac Chung , but more than 50% of the lines were classified as foreign language films unless they were English, causing a big backlash from the U.S. film industry. Since then, criticism of the white-oriented awards ceremony has led to a boycott of the Golden Glove, and a massive boycott has been carried out due to media disclosure. NBC in the U.S. canceled the broadcast of the Golden Glove Awards, while Netflix, Amazon Studios, and Warner Media boycotted the Golden Glove.
Jung-jae Lee will not attend the Golden Glove Awards because of Netflix's boycott. Jung-jae Lee has been actively participating in the U.S. awards ceremony, splitting his busy schedule late last year and attending the Gotham Awards. Jung-jae Lee originally planned to visit the U.S. because the Golden Glove and Critics Choice Awards were scheduled to be held on the same day. However, it is reported that the Critics Awards was postponed in the aftermath of COVID-19 and canceled its trip to the U.S. due to a boycott of the Golden Glove.
