Parasite the series will delve deeper into the characters and expand on the plot. Bond told Hollywood Reporter that “There were so many stories that I thought of that could happen in between the sequences you see in the film, and some background stories for each character,” adding “I really wanted to explore those ideas freely with a five- or six-hour film.”
For example, Bong told The Wrap “When the original housekeeper, Mun Gwang (Lee Jung Eun), comes back in the late night, something happened to her face. Even her husband asked about it, but she never answered. I know why she had the bruises on her face…. I have all these hidden stories that I have stored.”
For now, no release date has been announced, so we’ll just have to stay tuned to get some more Bong action.
