South Korean Movie – level 2

31-01-2020 07:00

The South Korean movie “Parasite” is a possible winner for the best international film at the Oscars. The movie has made history for its country, award category, and the international film industry.

“Parasite” is South Korea’s first nomination at the Oscars. Italy and France have won the most awards in the international film category, but Poland, Hungary, Iran, Chile, and Mexico have won awards in the last five years.

Both critics and audiences are talking about the movie “Parasite.” A film professor said that it is unusual for a film like this to have so much hype. However, digital platforms have helped more people learn about international movies.

Difficult words: industry (a type of business), nomination (the situation when someone chooses you to possibly win an award), hype (excitement).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
