Parasite has been widely recognized as an intricate and darkly funny tragedy detailing class difference as portrayed by a struggling Korean family that works its way into a wealthy family’s home. However, Bong Joon Ho says there are more stories to tell when it comes to Parasite.
As reported by Deadline, Bong explained, “With Parasite, while I was writing the script I had so many more ideas I couldn’t convey into the two-hour running time of the film. I knew that if I had a longer running time, I would be able to tell these stories, and that’s what I plan to talk about with Adam [McKay] pretty soon.”
