Parasite (Gisaengchung)

Kim Ki-taek, an unemployed driver, lives with his wife Choong-sook, son Ki-woo and daughter Ki-jeong in a shabby semi-basement apartment. The family struggles to survive, working low-paying gigs such as folding pizza boxes. Ki-woo's friend Min-hyuk visits the family and gifts them a large rock, before leaving to study abroad, suggesting Ki-woo take over his job as an English tutor for the wealthy Park family's youngest daughter, Da-hye. In the lavish Park mansion, Ki-woo is interviewed by Mrs. Park to tutor Da-hye, and is hired after Mrs. Park sees his talents in action. Learning of Mrs. Park's struggle to find an art teacher for her younger child, Da-song, Ki-woo suggests a "professional" named Jessica, who in reality is Ki-jeong. Once hired, Ki-jeong gets Mr. Park's driver fired and replaced with her "Uncle Kim": Ki-taek. The Kims soon get housekeeper Moon-kwang fired, with Choong-sook hired in her place, employing the entire Kim family.
