·2 min read

“Squid Game” may have won big at the Emmys on Monday, but one cast member stole the show at the afterparty by getting down on the dance floor.

The Netflix series has a lot of reasons to celebrate after taking home six out of the 14 Emmy awards it was nominated for, including best actor for Lee Jung-jae, who became the first Asian to win in the category. He also became the first actor from a non-English-language series to nab an Emmy award.

But it was actor O Yeong-su, who played Oh Il-nam (Player 001) on the show, who took the spotlight during the festivities hosted by Netflix following the awards ceremony.

In a video recorded during the party, the 77-year-old actor can be seen boogying in the middle of the dance floor as everyone cheers him on.
