First Teaser Trailer for Bong Joon-ho's Family Tragicomedy 'Parasite'
Get ready for the next Bong Joon-ho film! CJ Entertainment has debuted an official Korean trailer for Bong Joon-ho's next, a family drama titled Parasite. Don't be deceived, however, as there's definitely still some murder and mystery in this - it's not just a simple drama about a family. All unemployed, Ki-taek's family takes peculiar interest in the Parks for their livelihood until they get entangled in an unexpected incident. This stars Song Kang-ho (Bong's usual lead from Memories of Murder, The Host, Snowpiercer) with Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Jang Hye-jin, Choi Woo-shik, Park So-dam, plus Park Seo-joon. We don't usually post international trailers without subtitles, but this is the new Bong Joon-ho film! Can't help it. He's one of my favorite filmmakers, and rumors are this will premiere in Cannes. Definitely worth a look.
