Lee Jeong-hyeon expressed gratitude to director Yeon Sang-ho. He said, "I asked to do 'Parasite' together, but I told him because I felt like I needed to have a child quickly due to my age. I think the director also wrote only the first part of the script. He contacted me asking if I was pregnant. As soon as I became pregnant, the first thing I did was ask him if I was pregnant. “I told him. Then he said he understood and that he would now write the scenario after that. The director said it was a coincidence and there was no need to be thankful, but I was very thankful.”

In response, director Yeon Sang-ho jokingly said, “I made a plan for the second generation together with Lee Jeong-hyun.”

‘Parasite’ will be released on Netflix on April 5.
