Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho has steadily built a canon of masterpieces over the past two decades, genre-hopping from mystery to monster flicks, dabbling in post-apocalyptic horror and animal rights action movies, switching between Korean- and English-language films, all while maintaining his signature darkly comedic tone.

His longtime collaborator, actor Song Kang-ho, first starred in Bong’s epic, hilarious true crime murder mystery “Memories of Murder.” He’s an integral part of Bong’s unique style, walking the tonal tightrope of tragedy and comedy. He’s starred in every film Bong’s made since, including his most recent masterpiece, “Parasite,” a slick, Hitchcockian family thriller and a class warfare cri de coeur.
