KUALA LUMPUR: Dark comedy thriller Parasite made history by being the first foreign language movie to win Best Picture at the recent 92nd Academy Awards.

Now movie fans can watch the 2019 Bong Joon Ho-directed South Korean movie on video streaming service, Viu.

A critical and box office hit, Parasite also bagged the awards for Best International Feature Film, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars.

Featuring a star-studded cast, which includes Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-shik and Park So-dam, the movie is a satire on the disparity between social classes.

It revolves around a down-and-out family that tries to ascend to a higher social and economic status by slowly infiltrating another well-to-do family, as well as the repercussions that follow on both sides of the divide.

Parasite begins with a teenager, Kim Ki-woo (played by Choi Woo-shik) who forges a university degree in order to get hired as a tutor for the Parks’ wealthy daughter, Da Hae (Jung Ziso).

Soon after, the Kims create elaborate new identities and infiltrate the Parks’ household.

Viewers can catch Parasite on all of Viu’s platforms, from the mobile app, mobile browser and desktop to Android TV and selected LG TVs.

The movie is also available in various subtitles, such as English, Bahasa Malaysia, Bahasa Indonesia and simplified Chinese.
