Did you know that CJ Group, the Korean entertainment conglomerate that funded Parasite started off as a humble food company that produced sugar and flour?
Now you do!
That was back in the 1950s, Miky Lee, Parasite’s executive producer, told The Wall Street Journal. “We were just a food company. When my grandfather passed away and we became independent, my brother and I really wanted to expand the company.”
And there you have it. Thank you, Ms. Lee, for giving us a reason to talk about Parasite on The Takeout.
