"Oscar-winning actress Youn Yuh-jung is all the buzz right now.
And not just for making history as the first Korean actress to land an Academy Award."

"There's a big generation gap between the actress and I. But despite the gap, I feel like her conversations are really funny and that she is really approachable."

There's now even a new phrase, 'Youning over' from 'mooning over'. A lot of people think highly of Youn Yuh-jung's direct conversational style, myself included."

"I saw her interview yesterday, and to the question where she was asked how Brad Pitt smelled, she answered that she didn't smell him because she's not a dog. Remarks like these are so funny.

"So I have to ask you, what did you guys talk about and what did he smell like?"

"I didn't smell him, I'm not dog"

Her witty comments stole the show at the Oscars.

"I would like to thank my two boys who made me go out and work. So beloved sons, this is the result because mommy worked so hard."

The Youtube videos of her acceptance speech were flooded with comments like "This is the best speech of the Oscar night," and "She is such a funny and talented legend."
Twitter saw more than 660-thousand tweets with the hashtag YounYuhjung on the day of the Oscars, and more people re-tweeted the Academy's post announcing her victory than they did the posts for any other category.
She also used her sharp wit to spread a message of diversity.

"We people are categorized like black, white, yellow, brown, something like that. That's not nice way to just divide like that. If we can color together, make it more prettier,We are equal human beings. We have the same warm heart so."

During a press conference after the Oscars, a reporter asked Youn Yuh-jung how she honed her humorous conversational skills.

"I've lived a long life. A long life. And I chat a lot with my friends. I guess my sense of humor comes from chatting."

So her secret is now revealed.
Her lovable qualities come from old age and plenty of chatting.
