New Immersive Exhibition Featuring BTS And Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” Is Coming To The United States

“Parasite” and “BTS MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E” will be highlighted.

A new immersive exhibition featuring BTS and Bong Joon Ho‘s Oscar-winning film Parasite is coming to the United States.

Korea in the 21st Century is defined by a convergence of culture, art, and technology. The country’s energetic creation of new cultural content is unmatched in the global sphere, with creative minds constantly at work at the intersection of past and future, tradition and cutting-edge technology, fine art, music and more. To see evidence of this success, we need only look at BTS—a band that has surpassed the usual definition of the word to become an international phenomenon founded on diversity—and Parasite, the first Korean film to win the Palme D’Or at Cannes as well as the Academy Award. These two recent examples have instilled a sense of confidence in the Korean creative industries as part of the global market.
