Youn Yuh-jung's ex-husband calls her Oscar win "awesome vengeance to all cheating husbands"

Cho Young-nam, a singer who had divorced now Oscar-winning actress Youn Yuh-jung over his cheating, caught flak after publicly linking her latest achievement to their former marriage.

After Youn won the Best Supporting Actress Award at the Academy Awards in Los Angeles for her role in "Minari" on April 25, Cho, 75, who was a popular musician in Korea in the 1970-80s, had an interview with a Korean media outlet, where he was asked to give his thoughts about the woman he divorced 34 years ago.

He said that it was, "Great news and something I want to congratulate her for very much," and added: "Isn't her Oscar winning like the best, most awesome vengeance to all cheating husbands? Of course, I am the one who cheated on her so I have to be more discreet from now on." Many of her fans have found these remarks offensive and upsetting.

Writer Lee Seok-won said on his online blog: "I don't understand the reporter who sought out Cho, who got divorced from Youn 34 years ago, to ask about her Oscar achievement. But I also don't understand Cho who had the gall to respond like that."
