[HanCinema's News] "Parasite" Has Renewed Interest in Other Bong Joon-ho Films


In a statement released on June 5th a representative from the online streaming service Watcha Play claimed that in the top five movies requested between June 1st and June 3rd, three films from director Bong Joon-ho have emerged in the top five. "Mother - 2009", "Memories of Murder" and "Snowpiercer" were those movies.

The exact placement of those three movies in the top 5, as well as the other two most popular titles during that timeframe, were not revealed. Online streaming services typically consider this information proprietary and do not generally release it at all.

In this case the information establishes that subsequent popular films by well-known directors, in this case "Parasite" by Bong Joon-ho, reinvigorate interest in that director's filmography. The same effect can be frequently seen with remakes and sequels, which often inspire interest in the original they were based off of.

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