The cast and production staff of filmmaker Bong Joon-ho's multi-Oscar-winning film "Parasite" have been invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in the U.S.

The academy on Tuesday extended invitations to "819 artists and executives who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures".

"Parasite" stars like Choi Wooshik, Jang Hye-jin, Cho Yeo-jeong Lee Jung-eun and Park So-dam received invitations, as did the film's seven key staff including producer Kwak Sin-ae and co-writer Han Jin-won, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay with Bong in January this year.

Lee Hyun-min, an animation supervisor of Walt Disney's "Frozen 2", and Yi Seung-Jun, who directed the Oscar-nominated documentary "In the Absence", were also invited to join the academy.

Bong and "Parasite" lead actor Song Kang-ho became members of the academy in 2015. They are among more than 40 Korean members, including filmmakers Park Chan-wook and Lee Chang-dong and actor Lee Byung-hun.


"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.
