Thanks to ‘Parasite’ and its sucess, South Korean cinema is now the darling of the worldwide film community.
For a closer look everything about ‘Parasite’,… film critic and Professor at Korea Soongsil Cyber University, Jason Bechervaise joins us in the studio today.
Thanks so much for coming in!
Great to be here!
1. So yesterday was a historic day indeed for South Korean cinema.
First of all though, what does winning the Best Picture and Best director mean in general?
How great of an honor is it for those in the movie industry?

2. “Parasite’s” upset of presumed front-runner “1917” was definitely a rare surprise on Oscar night.
How did this happen?
What do you think made this possible for ‘Parasite’?
2a. What were some of Director Bong Joon-ho’s past films that won international recognition?

3. Were there any other foreign films in the past that were nominated for the Oscars and won?
Were there any foreign films that were *nominated for Best Picture and Best director?

4. Many say this is only the beginning of a new, global stage for South Korea’s film industry and that ‘Parasite’ really opened the door for not only Korean but other foreign films as well. What are your thoughts on this?
Thanks so much for your insight today
