Look. A trailer where I have a sense of the tone of the film but no idea of what the whole story is! Wow that’s different from every trailer these days

While many have recognised that Korean dramas are popular across the globe, few recognise Korean movies the same way. Glad that this movie shakes people's perception towards Korean movies. Also, many of its cast members are familiar faces in the Korean drama scene - all are really good actors!

This is one of the best movies I've ever seen. The trailer doesn't give away much, which is good. So you'll just have to trust me, an internet stranger, when I say to go see it.

I wasn't impressed with the trailer, didn't want to see it until my folks rented it, and its first half. I was wrong. The movie was actually decent. The first half was slow, but things went totally unexpected in the second half to make it better.

This trailer is so much better after watching the film. Some shots that look tense are actually hilarious. Some shots that make no sense are actually the most nerve-wracking. And it still doesn’t spoil anything for anyone interested in the movie!

I had recently watched Memories of Murder when the trailer of Parasite cropped up in my YouTube recommendations.

I decided to give it a shot and boy was I shocked by the sheer brilliance of the movie.

It is easily in my top 5 movies of all time.

"Best way to watch this is by going in blindly."
- By Bong Joon Ho, the Director of "Parasite"

If you're in doubt, don't research, don't read the reviews, just go and watch it. Best spent $9 in my life.

I fell in love with South Korean movies over 5 years ago. I started with Oldboy, then Chaser, then Memories of Murder, then Show Must Go On. That's when I realized Kang-ho Song was one of my favorite actors. I also enjoyed movies like Sunny and The Wailing. What drew me to South Korean movies are their skilled ways of creating suspense and mystery with a little humor mixed in. I can figure out what will happen in most American thrillers with ease while others are still guessing (humble brag), but South Korean films truly suck me in and keep me guessing. I'm seeing this today. I'm so excited! 😭

I like to say that’s true don’t be angry . Korean movie have more emotional and really acting more than Hollywood. Hollywood is best in hero and adventure. But Korean more really and that’s important for us we live in real life all people need wake up feeling life we more living together human animal earth . And in the end korean best in crime and drama and mystery and sad and funny movies all is best . This people understand when saw it Korean movie who agree

"None of his art teachers ever last." I wonder if that's not some obvious foreshadowing.
