Being one of the most commented films of 2019, “ Parasite ” has just made history by becoming the first South Korean film to win the “ Best Foreign Film ” categories and being the first non-English speaker to win the “ Best Movie . ”
Nor should we forget their awards for ” Best Original Screenplay ” and ” Best Director .”
” Memories of Murder ” is a criminal drama in which three detectives must investigate the murder of a young woman in a small South Korean town in 1986.
This would be Joon Ho’s second feature film as a director and one that would help him settle in the international environment.
There is no confirmed date for both releases.
