Building the ‘Parasite’ House: How Bong Joon Ho and His Team Made the Year’s Best Set
Korean director Bong Joon Ho’s Palme d’Or-winning Parasite has been praised for its deep insight into class warfare, but its set design is equally impressive: The movie finds a poor family conning its way into the affluent Park household, gradually taking over their lives, and an estimated 60 percent of Parasite takes place in the wealthy Park family home. Most viewers may not realise that the entire set was built from scratch.
In the movie, this marvel of modern architecture was designed by a fictional architect named Namgoong Hyeonja. In truth, it was the brainchild of “Parasite” production designer Lee Ha Jun.
