Bong Joon Ho responded by stating that the standing ovation lasted very long but he and the actors were very hungry because they hadn't eaten dinner. He explained that they all were telling each other that they were hungry, so they ended up subtitling it in the video. Since the clapping continued, the director finally decided to go home.
