I was curious to see if the interpreter for best director winner Bong Joon Ho was among the 1 million profiles on the platform. So I used ProZ Find™ to search the world's largest community of translators, interpreters, subtitlers and other independent language professionals.

Among the 58 members who offer on-site interpreting from Korean to English, I did not find her. I did not check the 1,726 profiles available to contact that are not members. She is also not one of the Korean to English interpreters screened in the interpreter pool who are located in South Korea.

She may not have a profile yet.

In addition to Best Picture and Best Director, Choi, a 25-year old American living in Seoul, interpreted live in front of a worldwide audience estimated in the hundreds of millions for wins in Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film.
