image for BongHive Assemble: ‘Parasite’ and 3 Other Bong Joon-ho Films Are Now Streaming on Hulu

But now, thanks to Hulu’s exclusive streaming deal with the independent film production company NEON, Hulu subscribers can stream Parasite from the comfort (and safety) of their living room.

Not only can Hulu subscribers now stream Parasite, but they can also stream three of Bong Joon-ho’s earlier films that were added to the streaming service today: Barking Dogs Never Bite (2000), Mother (2009) and The Host (2006).

Just to give you a quick overview: Barking Dogs Never Bite, Bong’s directorial debut, is a dark comedy about an unemployed college professor who kidnaps the dogs who are constantly barking his apartment.

In other words, there’s a Bong movie for everyone on Hulu right now, and each comes with that signature Bong Joon-ho touch.

Despite the Academy’s usual preference for slow-moving, depressing dramas, Parasite is a lively, fast-paced thriller, packed with exciting twists and turns.

The story builds onto itself masterfully, and you’ll be on the edge of your seat the entire time.
