Hoping to catch this over the weekend. It seems like plots about crossing social classes are quite popular in Korean dramas. Someone poor outsmarts rich executives who look down on him/her, but that person romances an executive's kid or even one of the executives...

I'm watching it later this week. Can't wait! It's one of those releases where audiences and critics are pretty close in (positive) agreement. Metacritic and IMDb posted high numbers, too.

Let me know what you think of it! I think I read about it somewhere and said that the movie is more like dark humor about societal issues. I'm not sure exactly what those are, but maybe that's something I should find out by watching. It's sad to think just how evil humans can be, though.

It's oh so dark and surprising. Definitely a society tale. I'm still processing what I saw, especially the final act. The cast is awesome and I thought the story moved fast even in its quieter moments. More thoughts to follow!

One of the big questions I'm rolling around in my head is who's the bigger parasite, the struggling Kim family who really wants the wealthy lifestyle — or the very rich Park family, who use the poor's labor and doesn't notice what they go through?

Both. I think that might be the message the director was trying to get across. This is definitely a movie I'll take time out to see.
