'Parasite' Becomes Highest-Grossing Korean Film Ever in Japan

2020/03/10 Source

Director Bong Joon-ho's multi-Oscar-winning film "Parasite" has garnered huge popularity in Japan.

The black comedy earned 4.05 billion yen in ticket sales as of last week, since its release in early January in the island country, the film's distributor CJ E&M said on Monday.

"Parasite" has become the highest-grossing Korean film in Japan, breaking the previous record of 3 billion yen set by "A Moment to Remember", the 2004 Korean tearjerker about a young couple's enduring love, which was released there the following year.

"Parasite" immediately swept the Japanese box office after it won four Oscars -- best picture, best director, best original screenplay and best international feature -- at this year's Academy Awards last month.


"Parasite" is directed by Bong Joon-ho, and features Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Choi Wooshik, Park So-dam, Lee Jung-eun. Release date in Korea: 2019/05/30.
