No doubt, Parasite film is a total groundbreaker! Imagine being able to bring this South Korean movie to the consciousness of the westerners and other races from all over the world. It's just overwhelming, not to mention that it was the first-ever foreign film to bag the award for the Best Picture at the Oscars in 2020. Although director Bong Joon-ho and Kwak Sin-ae were doubtful of how people would perceive it (because to be honest, the film was not seen as something in the bag), it still emerged victoriously. But dear friends, it was not the success of the film alone that we are talking about here. It was the success of the whole South Korean showbusiness, especially the silver screen industry. It paved the way for foreign viewers to appreciate Korean-produced shows even more. And when it comes to Korean entertainment, K-dramas will never be off the table. And so finally, after perhaps hours of scouring the internet for K-dramas to watch if you loved Parasite, you landed on the perfect page!

Topping the list is SKY Castle! The parallelism between Parasite and SKY Castle lies in the existence of four women who were born into wealthy families as they struggle to keep their status quo. Prepare yourself for a good laugh with this! Coming off as top 2 is Fight for My Way starring Park Seo-joon, who was also part of the 2019 movie Parasite, and Kim Ji-won. Since Parasite is full of symbolism about social status oppression, Fight for My Way might just be your next favorite! Those are just two out of the several K-dramas to watch if you loved Parasite! Feel free to proceed to the list below and start watching!
