Cho and the "Titanic" actor met for the first time during the 92nd Academy Awards, where the movie she starred in won four awards.

Recently, it was confirmed by iMBC, that the actress has returned to "SNL" once again after nine years, and for the fifth episode of its second season, she appeared as the guest host.
Per this article, during a skit with comedian Shin Dongyup, the actress revealed the story behind her picture with DiCaprio.
The actor came up to the group of "Parasite" actors, and when he spoke with Yeo-Jeong, she asked the most go-to icebreaker, "Do you know BTS?" In Cho's words, she said, "Yeah, he caught me on a brief moment right before we went up to the stage to be awarded. He congratulated me on the win. I asked him if he knows BTS."
