Of course, being in the foreign language section at last year’s Globes did not harm South Korea’s “Parasite,” which went on to win the biggest prize of all — the best picture Oscar.

LOS ANGELES, United States (AFP) — “Minari,” the critically acclaimed story of a Korean-American family that moves to a farm in rural Arkansas in the 1980s, on Sunday won the Golden Globe for best foreign language film.

It bested “Another Round” (Denmark), “La Llorona” (Guatemala, France), “The Life Ahead” (Italy) and “Two Of Us” (France, US).
