Director Yeon Sang-ho's 'Parasite: The Gray', expansion of new creatures
The Netflix series 'Parasite: The Gray' (directed by Yeon Sang-ho) will be released on April 5.

'Parasite: The Gray' tells the story of a human beast who comes to coexist with the parasites, and the operation of the dedicated team 'The Gray' to stop them when parasites appear that try to expand their power by using humans as hosts. It's a Netflix series. It is based on the Japanese cartoon 『Parasite』 as the original work (Iwaaki Hitoshi), and actors Jeon So-ni, Koo Kyo-hwan, Lee Jung-hyun, Kwon Hae-hyo, and Kim In-kwon appear.

Director Yeon Sang-ho, who directed the film, made his debut as a feature film director with 'The King of Pigs', which was the first Korean animation film to be invited to the Director's Week of the 65th Cannes Film Festival. He also showed his colors through works such as 'Train to Busan' and 'Hell'. Director Yeon Sang-ho said, "If all the stories we have made so far have been created based on original scenarios, this 'Parasite: The Gray' is a story created by expanding on the world view of the original work."

Director Yeon Sang-ho, who wanted to include the theme of coexistence that the original cartoon 『Parasite』 wanted to talk about in 'Parasite: The Gray', explained, "It is a work that contains themes such as the organization created by humans for coexistence and the individual within the organization." . Regarding the subtitle 'The Gray', "Special agents include white agents who reveal their identities and black agents who operate while hiding their identities. They are used interchangeably to operate flexibly and act as intermediaries between humans and parasites to create two conflicting worlds." “I thought the ‘suin’ (Jeon So-ni) looking at me was gray,” he added.

Regarding the VFX technology that will embody the cartoonish imagination, "There are a significant number of parasitic beasts, and they all have their own unique characteristics, so a significant amount of VFX technology was put into it. Not only the parasitic beasts, but also cool shooting action and car chasing appear. “He explained.
