“Parasite” continues to make history after becoming the first South Korean film to be nominated for best picture and best international film at the Oscars.
Directed by Bong Joon-ho, this critically acclaimed film brings the important conversation about class inequality into the mainstream media. The film is based in Korea and follows the Kims, a poor family, as they try to cope with their poverty through becoming con artists.
The film was a massive box office hit, grossing over $25 million in the U.S. and over $132 million globally, as reported by NBC.
Currently, early talks are underway about an HBO limited series based on “Parasite”. The film will be a collaboration between Bong Joon-ho and Adam McKay, director of “The Big Short”.
