About The Host 💬

  • Man has made his newest predator.

Three generations living together in peace and quiet until when the youngest is taken and no one will help them. They take matters into their own hands...

  • It is lurking behind you.

The Han River runs through the heart of Seoul and when the US military dumps toxic chemicals in the river, a monstrous mutant creature is conceived in its waters. Then suddenly the creature reveals itself and creates a path of destruction on the local residents by the river. Park Gang-Doo (Kang-ho Song), who operates a snack bar on the riverbank, witnesses his only daughter, Park Hyun-seo (Ko Asung), taken away by the creature right before his eyes.

  • You are what it eats.

The sudden and shocking appearance of the mutant creature renders the government and state powerless to act. The once-ordinary citizen, Gang-Doo, and his family , sneak past the military cordon and are thrust into a battle with the monster in a desperate attempt to rescue Hyun-seo and they are forced into an unstoppable showdown with the mutant monster.

Directed by Joon-ho Bong THE HOST is the tale of ordinary people facing extraordinary odds.


The Han River

The River has flown with us and around us.
A fearsome Creature makes a sudden appearance from the depths of this river, so familiar and comfortable for us Seoulites.
The riverbanks are instantly plunged into a bloody chaos.
The film begins at the precise moment, in which a space familiar and intimate to us, is suddenly transformed into the stage of an unthinkable disaster and tragedy.

The Family

Park Gang-Doo and his family have led ordinary, repetitive lives, never really extending beyond the confines of their small food stand on the banks of the Han River.
They are devastated by the emergence of the Creature.
Robbed of their peaceful daily routines, Gang-Doo and his family nonetheless throw themselves into a life-and-death struggle against the Creature.
The film shows how these exceedingly normal people, no different from our everyday neighbors, are transformed into monster-fighting warriors.

A Fight to the Death

The Creature is not the only adversary they have to fight.
For Gang-Doo and his family, impoverished, powerless ''little people,'' the whole world around them is revealed to be a true monster.
They have to fight against it tooth and nail.
In the end, the film is a record of their fight to the death against the indifferent, calculating and manipulative Monster known as the world.
