Trivia: This is the first non-English language film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture.

Trivia: Throughout the film, lines are very subtly used to divide the Kim and Park families. Ex. Walls, picture frames and other objects with vertical lines often appear between members of either family when both are on the screen. One of the earliest examples is when Mrs. Park is introduced, and we see her outside of a window. There is a very clear line in the window between she and Ki-Woo, implying a sense of separation. Instances like this are littered throughout the film.


Trivia: Mister Park's company in the film is called Another Brick because Bong Joon-ho's favorite band while he was in college was Pink Floyd.


Trivia: Bong Joon-Ho originally intended to make "Parasite" a play, but he kept thinking about how he'd film it if it were a movie during the early writing process. He very quickly realised he instead had to make it into a movie.


Continuity mistake: Just before the violent climax at the party, the pool of blood and the pieces of glass change position next to to Ki-woo, as the noose does. (01:51:55)

Ki-taek: Rich people are naive. No resentments. No creases on them.
Chung-sook, Ki-taek's wife: It all gets ironed out. Money is an iron. Those creases all get smoothed out by money.
