Business booms for ‘Parasite’ locations

Seoul: Locations featured in South Korea’s Oscar-winning ‘Parasite’ movie have enjoyed a business boom since its Oscar triumph, with a pizza store seeing sales double.
The genre-defying thriller critiquing the gap between rich and poor won four Oscars, including best picture, the first non-English language film to win the top prize since the Academy Awards debuted in 1929.
South Koreans have been overjoyed by its success, with many paying visits to spots where scenes were filmed.
“Sales have doubled,” said Eom Hang-ki, 65, owner of Sky Pizza in southern Seoul, a nondescript 10-seat restaurant and takeaway where the poor Kim family scheme to infiltrate another member into the wealthy Park household.
“Yesterday, the pizza machine broke down due to an overload of orders. “It was special, touching, and heart warming when they won the awards,” she added. (AFP)
