Jung Hyeon-jun may only be 10 years old, but he is already fulfilling his life’s purpose.

The “Parasite” actor was too young to go to the Oscars earlier this month to witness the film’s historic Best Picture win, but his family captured his reaction as he watched the ceremony at home. Jung played Park Da-song in the South Korean film.

“I thought it would be awesome to get it, and we actually won the award!” Jung told the Associated Press on the day of the win. “So I am wondering if I am in heaven. I think I was born to receive an Oscar.”

In the heartwarming video, an overwhelmed Jung is seen screaming and jumping up and down during the moment “Parasite” claimed the coveted title.

“Parasite” was Jung’s first feature film, having got his start in South Korean television series “You Are Too Much,” Through the Waves,” and “Vagabond” prior to his break into movies.

The film, a blockbuster in Korea before taking the U.S. awards season by storm, claimed four Oscars in total out of five nominations, including one for Bong Joon Ho’s directing. The satire was the first foreign-language film to win Best Picture in the Oscars’ 92-year history.
