Bong Joon Ho Films

In the midst of a worldwide pandemic it’s nice having a series of films to watch and discuss with a group of friends and confidantes. This week’s topic is the films of writer and director Bong Joon Ho. With the massive critical success and unprecedented Academy Award wins for his film Parasite earlier this year we figure it was high time to discuss the acclaimed director. With that being said our usual hosts Casey and Brian could not do this episode alone. We have invited fellow Back Lot 605 host and writer Blake Ginithan to join the discussion as third party to the discussion. So sit back and enjoy the films of Bong Joon Ho.


Ho made his feature directorial debut in 2000 with the black comedy Barking Dogs Never Bite. He followed that film up with the critically acclaimed Memories of Murder in 2003. 2006’s The Host was a breakout hit for Ho, as the monster film resonated with audiences worldwide. The 2009 mystery drama Mother was another critical success for the director. 2013 saw Ho direct his first English language film with the post-apocalyptic film Snowpiercer. Okja was the director’s 2nd English language film, this time debuting on Netflix in 2017. Ho’s biggest success came with the Academy Award winning film Parasite in 2019.
