He had all the fun in the world.

Unless you've been living under a huge ass rock, you would've heard that the world's biggest and most prestigious awards show, the 92nd Academy Awards, took place on Monday (10 February)

The biggest winner of the night was none other than South Korean movie 'Parasite'.

On top of winning three big awards - Best Original Screenplay, Best Foreign Language Film and Best Director - it also made history by becoming the first ever foreign language film to win the Best Film award in the history of the Oscars.

Hooray for Asian pride!
And nobody celebrated the wins more than its director, Bong Joon-ho.

In fact, he had so much fun at the Oscars, his antics during the night were absolutely adorable.

Let's take a look at some of his best moments:

1) Lovingly gazing at his Oscar statuette

'Parasite' won its first award of the night by picking up the statuette for Best Original Screenplay.

Bong and co-writer Han Jin-won took the stage to accept the award, and while Han was giving his acceptance speech, cameras caught Bong gazing lovingly at his very own Oscar statuette:
Of course, netizens couldn't help but go all 'aww' over Bong's love for his Oscar statuette:

2) Apologising to the engravers

After the awards show, the winners would gather backstage to have their Oscar stattuetes engraved.

'Parasite' won a handful of awards, so the engravers would have a lot of work to do.

Now, Bong shouldn't feel too bad for the engravers (because that's their job, anyway), but he was caught on camera apologising to the engravers for giving them so many awards to engrave.
“I’m so sorry for the hard work. There’s too many,” he said to the engravers.

Bless your sweet soul, Bong!

3) Making his statuettes kiss

What do you do when someone hands you two Oscar statuettes? We know what we will do (because we're immature AF): make 'em statuettes kiss.

And that is exactly what Bong did:

Now, kiss.
Never change, Bong! Never change.

4) Having endess fun with his statuettes

Forget supermodel poses or photoshoot swag, Bong won four Oscars and he wasn't shy about showing them off:

Sorry, not enough hands to carry.
Drink up, Bong!
Even his producer was not spared.
Even his co-writer was not spared.
Congratulations, Bong Joon-ho and the 'Parasite' team. You guys totally deserve the win and you have earned the right to party the night away.
