Alan Kim stole the 2021 Oscars ceremony before it even began.
The Minari star, who turned nine on Saturday (24 April), arrived on the Los Angeles red carpet – and was clearly very excited to be there with the film’s producer, Christina Oh.
Shortly before the event kicked off, a video of the actor dancing in his suit did the rounds on Twitter.
“Now why is this the cutest thing I’ve seen all day,” one person wrote in response, with another adding: “The real star of the Oscars, me thinks.”
Directed by Lee Isaac Chung, Minari follows a family of South Korean immigrants who try to make it in the rural United States during the 1980s.
Two of the Best Picture nominee’s leads stars, Steven Yeun and Youn Yuh Jung, are both nominated for acting awards.
David Fincher’s Mank leads the Oscars pack with 10 nominations, including Best Director, Best Actor for Gary Oldman and Best Supporting Actress for Amanda Seyfried.
