From the celebrated director of Parasite, Memories of Murder and Snowpiercer comes one of the best ‘creature features’ ever made. The Host revolves around Park Hee-bong, a man in his late 60s who runs a small snack bar on the banks of the Han River and lives with his two sons, daughter, and one granddaughter. The Parks are relatively poor but lead an ordinary and peaceful life. His elder son Gang-du (Kang-ho Song) is an immature and incompetent man in his 40s, whose wife left home long ago. Nam-il is the youngest son, an unemployed grumbler, and daughter Nam-joo (Doona Bae) is an archery medalist and member of the national team. One day, an unidentified creature suddenly appears from the depths of the Han River and spreads panic and death, and Gang-du's daughter is carried off. But when they find out she is still alive, they resolve to save her. According to the director, his inspiration came from a local article about a deformed fish with an S-shaped spine caught in the Han River!
