Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite is the story of a poor family infiltrating a rich one. It starts with the poor son, Kim Ki-woo (Choi Woo Shik). He’s friends with the rich family’s tutor, Min (Seo-Joon Park, who starred in the MMA/Possession film The Divine Fury). Min is going to study abroad, but he’s in love with the rich family’s fifteen-year-old Park Da-Hye (Jung Ziso), telling Ki-woo that “When she enters university, I’ll officially ask her out.” He doesn’t trust anyone from University, so he recommends his friend Ki-Woo to take over as her tutor.
Ki-Woo’s sister Kim Ki-Jung (Park So Dam) forges him a diploma (He explains to his father that he intends to go to that university, “I just printed out the document a bit early.”) and he’s in business, teaching Da-Hye English. The grift starts there. Slowly, the poor family insinuates into the rich one, finding increasingly creative ways to incapacitate the current staff so they can take their place.
