Korean Film Council submits 'Parasite' as Oscar contender Updated: 2019-08-23 13:07:52 KST

The South Korean film 'Parasite,' which won this year's Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, has been submitted as a contender for Best International Feature at next year's Academy Awards.
The Korean Film Council, on Thursday, chose the black comedy by director Bong Joon-ho.
The council said, it chose 'Parasite' over the seven other candidates because the film and its director are both already globally renowned and because it has enough artistic quality to represent Korea.
'Parasite' was the first Korean film to win the top prize at Cannes earlier this year.
It's attracted more than 10 million moviegoers since it was released less than three months ago.
