    "Ever since I watched Parasite, I wanted to look for more Korean movies to watch so I looked up the actors and was most intrigued by Song Kang Ho since he was the character that made me feel a lot. He is such a great actor and his many roles are a testament to that. I watched this and I can say that even tho Evans has the most screentime, I got to appreciate Song Kang Ho a lot more."
