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. By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, Parasite showcases a modern master at the top of his game.
The Park Family
Lee Sun Kyun
Mr. Park is the young CEO of a global IT firm. He is the ultimate success story and the perfect contrast to Ki-taek: he runs his own company, has bought a luxurious house designed by a famous architect, and lives with his beautiful wife and cute daughter and son. Busy at work, he leaves the day-to-day running of the house to his wife, and is never less than courteous to the people who work in his home.
Cho Yeo Jeong
Yeon-kyo is the wife of Mr. Park. She is responsible for her children’s education, the hiring of staff, and all other household matters. Her personality might be described as naïve or pure-hearted, and she trusts people too easily, but she herself is not aware of this. Her biggest worries are for her second child Da-song, who seems to be an art genius, but who is also unfocused and eccentric.
Da-hye is a pretty second-year high school student who gets Ki-woo as an English tutor. With her younger brother Da-song getting all the attention from her parents, she feels upset and suffers from lack of affection. When her new tutor Ki-woo arrives, she feels a special fascination for him from their first meeting.
Da-song is Da-hye’s younger brother, a second grade elementary school student. A member of the Cub Scouts, he loves camping and walkie-talkies, and is a fanatic for all things related to Native Americans. His mother believes he is a genius artist, but because of his eccentric and wild nature, none of his art tutors last more than a month.
The Kim Family
Song Kang Ho
Ki-taek is the head of the household for a family of four unemployed adults. Without any job or backup plan, he absorbs the criticisms of his wife Chung-sook while remaining calm and at peace. After numerous business failures he is skeptical about the need to formulate grandiose plans, but when his son Ki-woo becomes a tutor at a rich household, he starts to dream of being able to eat and live like normal people.
Choi Woo Shik
Ki-woo is the elder child of Ki-taek and Chung-sook. Having failed the university entrance exam four times, he passes his days without a job, doing part-time work or earning money on the side. Always positive by nature, he is recommended by his friend who attends a prestigious university to a tutoring job at the Park home. Carrying a fake diploma, as well as his family’s hopes for a regular income, he visits the Park family home for an interview.
Park So Dam
Ki-jung is the youngest child of Ki-taek and Chung-sook. Having failed to get into art school, and without enough money to pay for prep courses, she is unemployed like the rest of her family. Nonetheless her superior Photoshop skills enable her to make a perfectly forged diploma for Ki-woo’s job interview. The most realistic and hard-headed of her family, she remains unfazed whatever the situation. When she goes to the Park family to interview as an art tutor, she becomes the family’s second hope for a stable income.
Chang Hyae Jin
Chung-sook is a former national medalist in the hammer throw category of track and field. Compared to her listless husband, she projects a determined, strong image. And despite the frequent sparring between husband and wife, their relationship is good. When Ki-woo goes to interview for the tutoring job, her hopes of a regular income rise.
