The Host (2006, original title Gwoemul) is a smart, funny, and frightening monster movie, which was a tremendous hit in South Korea and a modest success in the United States. Directed by Bong Joon-ho and starring Song Kang-ho, Byun Hee-bong, Park Hae-il, Bae Doona, Go Ah-sung, and Scott Wilson, the movie features first-rate CGI and action sequences. The US military pollutes the Han River in Seoul, giving rise to a dreadful monster and a desperate search for a lost child by her family.
