'Parasite' becomes the best performing Korean movie of all-time in Japan


'Parasite' has become the best performing Korean movie of all-time at the Japanese box office.

The movie has attracted 2.2 million viewers and earned over 3 billion yen ($28 million) in ticket sales. The previous record was held by the movie 'A Moment To Remember' which was released back in 2004.

On February 23, Bong Joon Ho held a press conference hosted by the Japanese Press Club in Tokyo where Bong Joon Ho along with actor Song Kang Ho talked more about the film to 200 reporters. 

It seems like the 'Parasite' has become more and more successful after sweeping the Academy Awards. Congratulations to Bong Joon Ho and the cast.

Parasite is a game changer for South Korean cinema. It's in the top 3 of the UK Box Office too, something I never thought I'd see. I'm so glad this film got the recognition it deserved, it's an incredible watch.

I'm glad that Korean cinema is finally getting some recognition. South Korea is a tiny tiny little country smashed between two countries, Japan and China, that are usually more recognized by people around the world. But SK delivers the best entertainment value and tech contributions in Asia.
