The Korea Society has chosen "The Host" (2006) to screen at summer Members' Free Film Night. This family comedy/monster flick from acclaimed director Bong Joon-ho is Korea's highest grossing movie of all time and has won numerous awards, including Best Film at the Asian Film Awards.
"The Host" has been described as a "mutant hybrid spawned from the improbable union of Little Miss Sunshine and Godzilla, for the film is a family comedy and political satire in which an unnaturally evolved tadpole just happens to loom (very) large". Manohla Dargis of The New York Times wrote ""The Host" is a loopy, feverishly imaginative genre hybrid about the demons that haunt us from without and within". Quentin Tarantino included it in his list of top 20 films released since 1992 (the year he became a director).
