Universal Pictures Home Entertainment are bringing the 2019 South Korean black comedy thriller ‘Parasite‘ (기생충) to US Blu-ray, DVD and Digital on January 28, 2020.
Directed by Bong Joon-Ho, the film revolves around an unemployed family who take a peculiar interest in a wealthy and glamorous family, which leads to them getting entangled in an unexpected incident. The cast includes Song Kang-Ho, Lee Sun-Kyun, Cho Yeo-Jeong, Choi Woo-Sik, Park So-Dam, and Jang Hye-Jin.
Synopsis: Meet the Park family, the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.
