Bong Joon Ho 'exhausted' after award season run of Parasite  

The oscar-winning South Korean filmmaker said he can only work on one project at a time

Published: 09th March 2020

Director of Parasite, Bong Joon Ho, has said he is 'exhausted' mentally and physically following his time on the award circuit. Parasite's award season run was a massive success with the film winning several awards, including Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best International Feature Film, and Best Film at the 92nd Academy Awards.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker, who recently returned home to South Korea, said, "Now that I finally have time, I'm trying to get back on it, but I'm so exhausted, mentally and physically. I'm just a shell of a human."

Bong, who has two films lined up, including an English-language historical drama based on a true event that happened in 2016 and a South Korean production, which will be set in the country's capital city of Seoul, said he can only work on one project at a time.

"Once I start writing, I can only work on one project, and the same goes for pre-production. I'm always jealous of directors who can do projects in between TV shows," he added.

He also hinted that his English-language film could be a collaboration with Okja cinematographer Darius Khondji.
