Youn Yuh-jung has made Oscar history – and with such style! The glamorous staple of South Korea’s film and TV scene is the first Korean and the second Asian to take home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. (The first, Japanese American actress and singer Miyoshi Umeki, won for Sayonara in 1958. Rinko Kikuchi was nominated for Babel in 2007, but the Japanese actress lost that year to Dreamgirls‘ Jennifer Hudson.)
