Ted Takes Fun Facts, Parasite:
Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, the first Korean film to ever do so.
In an interview with a Korean magazine Cine21, Director Bong said of his experience in filming in hyper rich Korean home. He said his hand literally shook from anxiety when he was returning a trash can that was used as a prop: the trash can was of high-tech variety that stayed silent even when the lid was closed and cost as much as US $2,500.
