Parasite, the seventh feature film by Korean director Bong Joon Ho, premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, where it took the coveted Palme d'Or for best film in competition. Since then, it went on to become one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year, even scoring the Academy Award for 'Best Picture'. For the film's bracingly original score, Bong turned to Jung Jae il, who brings the world of Parasite to life with plaintive piano and stirring strings.
Says composer Jung Jae Il of his creative inspiration for the soundtrack to the wildly popular Korean film Parasite: "What is the one singular tone that can accompany emotions ranging from the most trivial humiliation to the extremities of murder, express all sorts of chaos, and embody the exhilaration of speed, or peace, or loneliness, or messy and dirty situations? I thought that a string orchestra could express these various narratives with one consistent tone - the elegant and refined sounds of baroque music, grotesque and neurotic sounds of contemporary music reminiscent of Penderecki or Ligeti, and violin and cello sounds that carry the bleakness of wandering nomads. In terms of the melody, it was structured as a repetition of ascension and descent as the Kim family ascends to the rich house only to descend back to their poor home and further below to the dreadful bunker hidden beneath the Park family's basement."
