Korea Movie "PARASITE"

It is really hard to imagine as a general public that there is no Wi-Fi in Korea. Even before Corona 19, there were few places where Wi-Fi was not available in Korea. In the subway, inside the house, offices, campuses, etc.


In Bong Joon-ho's Korean film'Parasite', the first scene is living in an underground house, so the Wi-Fi doesn't work well, and of course, you can't pay the Wi-Fi fee, so you can see the life of a family without a separate Wi-Fi password.



From this scene, Koreans can see how uncomfortable and weak their lives are. Korea orders, purchases, and delivers food ingredients with Wi-Fi and 5G data, and obtains all living information via the Internet via mobile.


This film shows the problems and the reality of the gap between the rich and the poor that exist around the world in a form of satire, but the most serious part in the story is that the gap between the gap between the rich and the poor about information is getting wider.



Now, Korea has become a crappy world without knowing the Netflix password I use. I have subscribed to a lot of paid member channels that go over without watching YouTube advertisement videos, and KakaoTalk, TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube are all ordinary daily routines in Korea.


However, Koreans want to live in higher and higher places, where barriers are encircled, and where privacy is thoroughly protected.





The corona bursts and this phenomenon gets worse. They prefer a place that is free from public interest, a place where secret privacy is protected, and a place where you can only have a peaceful rest with your family. So Koreans prefer apartments to apartments and villas rather than single-family houses. Therefore, the average sale price of a 32 pyeong apartment in Seoul, Korea, exceeds 900 million won.

The price of an apartment beyond imagination makes it possible to see how much consumption is required to live as a middle class in Seoul, South Korea.
