Oscar and Palme d’Or winner Korean movie Parasite (2019)

Pantheon Theatre and your local K-culture community HallyuCY bring you Bong Joon Ho’s sensational, yet haunting masterpiece ‘Parasite’ (2019)!


The Ki family is struggling to make ends meet, living in a cramped semi-basement apartment, in a busy lower working class commercial district of Seoul. The young son, Ki Woo, dreams of escaping poverty and one day going to university. By sheer luck, a lucrative business proposition brings him a step closer to that dream, when his friend Min, tells him to take over his private tutoring job for the teenage daughter of a wealthy family.

Now, the stage seems set for an unceasing “winner takes all” class war, as the Ki family take peculiar interest in the glamorous lifestyle of the Parks and in an insidiously subtle scheme, they begin ingratiating themselves into their lives.
