Parasite is a 2019 South Korean black comedy thriller film directed by Bong Joon-ho, who also wrote the film’s story and co-wrote the screenplay with Han Jin-won. The film stars Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-shik, and Park So-dam.

Parasite follows two Seoul families, the Kim and Park family. The Kims are barely above the poverty level and they have very little ambition to rise above it. Through their natural scheming abilities, they find ways to survive their situation. The Parks are a wealthy family who live a luxurious life, especially compared to the Kim family. Ki-woo (Choi Woo-shik) lucks out and obtains a job working as a tutor for the Park family daughter, Da-hye (Jung Ji-so). He soon develops a plan to ensure that his entire family gets a job working for the Parks. The Kim family must then pretend not to know each other.

Parasite has been gaining momentum ever since its May 2019 Cannes Film Festival debut. There, it became the first Korean film to win the prestigious Palme d’Or award. Parasite was also the first film since 2013’s Blue is the Warmest Color to win it by a unanimous vote. After winning the Palme d’Or, the film went on to become the third highest grossing film of all-time in South Korea with $113 million worldwide.
