Apart from his feature films, Bong has also contributed to anthology film projects, served as a jury member at various film festivals, including the 27th Sundance Film Festival, and has been included on Metacritic's list of the 25 best film directors of the 21st century. In 2020, he was included in Time's annual list of 100 Most Influential People and Bloomberg 50.
