“Parasite” is taking over Hollywood this award season. It’s even a front runner for Best Picture at the Oscars. But Bong Joon-ho’s latest film isn’t just a dystopian nightmare--it’s an accurate representation of class struggle in South Korea. There’s an incredibly messed-up true story behind the Kims and the Parks. From the necessity of scams to the overwhelming amount of young people who want to leave South Korea for greener pastures, there are some pretty astonishing facts about South Korean society that make a film like “Parasite” all the more important. For starters, it can be incredibly hard just to find work in South Korea if you don’t already have connections and money...or if you just aren’t clean enough. Check out our video to see why a film like “Parasite” had to be made and what the horror on screen illustrates about actual wealth inequality in our world.
