An upstairs-downstairs story mixing pathos and satire with thrills and drama as it deals with class struggle. It observes and dissects with surgical precision the life of two families of different social backgrounds. A poor family, the Kims, con their way into becoming the servants of a rich family, the Parks. But their easy life gets complicated when their deception is threatened with exposure. In the age of extreme wealth disparity, the Kims’ striving and scheming is thoroughly relatable.
The story presents a moral dilemma...who is the parasite. Hope may be the parasite.
May be difficult for some viewers
