Following the success of “Parasites”, “Minari” is the Oscar awarded movie which proved that South Korean creators certainly belong to the cinematic future. It stars Steven Yeun, Han Ye-ri, Alan Kim, Noel Kate Cho, Youn Yuh-jung, and Will Patton. Last but not least it earned six nominations at the 74th British Academy Film Awards, including Best Film Not in the English Language. According to Youn, Chung intended for Soon-ja to be alive at the end of the story. Steven Yeun previously starred in the 2018 movie Burning based on the Haruki Murakami short story, “Barn Burning” about a man (Yeun’s character) who says that he burns barns.
