Ho-yeon, who played North Korean defector Kang Sae-byeok, beat out heavy competition including: Jennifer Aniston (‘The Morning Show’), Elizabeth Moss (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’), Sarah Snook (‘Succession’), and Reese Witherspoon (‘The Morning Show’).

The 27-year-old model-turned-actress had tears running down her face as she addressed the audience saying via translator: ‘First and foremost, thank you so much. I have sat many a times watching you on the big screen, dreaming of one day becoming an actor. I just want to say thank you so much.’

She then took the mic on her own as she concluded her speech saying: ‘Thank you. Make me dream and open the door for me. I love you! Thank you!’

Earlier in the night Troy Kotsur made history as the 53-year-old actor was the first ever deaf actor to win an individual honor at the SAG Awards as he took home the first award in the Male Actor in a Supporting Role category for his work in CODA.

In the film the talented actor played Frank Rossi, the father of a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults) named Ruby (played by Emilia Jones) who is the only hearing person in her deaf family. When the family’s fishing business is threatened, Ruby finds herself torn between pursuing her love of music by wanting to go to Berklee College of Music and her fear of abandoning her parents.
