A round of applause for Sharon Choi, 'Parasite' director Bong Joon Ho's translator

— Award season is finally over for Sharon Choi -- or, as you might know her, the woman who has been translating for "Parasite" director Bong Joon Ho as he's made his press rounds.

Though her appearances alongside Bong Joon Ho on various talk shows and red carpets, Choi, who has directing aspirations, has become something of a star herself.

Or, as Bong Joon Ho put it in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter: "She has a big fandom."

In the same interview Choi, who seemed uncomfortable with the attention being turned on her, admitted doing so much press for "Parasite" made her "super anxious."

"I'm just a huge fan of this film and all the filmmakers. So it's been great," she said. "This is so embarrassing. But, yes, it's been great."

Bong Joon Ho added: "She's perfect, and we all depend on her. She's also a great filmmaker."

Backstage after winning his Oscars, the director said she's been working on a feature-length script and, "I'm so curious about it."

On stage Sunday, Bong Joon Ho joked that he was going to "drink until tomorrow" after picking up his wins.

Here's hoping hard-working Choi gets a beverage as well.
