Netflix’s "Squid Game” made history as the first foreign-language drama to win top honors at the television industry’s Emmy Awards on Monday night.

Creator Hwang Dong-hyuk won for outstanding directing and Lee Jung-jae, who played the main character in the South Korean drama, garnered the Emmy for best actor in a drama series.

"I truly hope ‘Squid Game’ won’t be the last non-English series to be here at the Emmys,” Hwang said after receiving his award.
