      Four movies by Bong Joon-ho have been selected as set texts at Georgia Institute of Technology.

      Bong's hit films "Memories of Murder" (2003), "The Host" (2006), "Mother" (2009) and "Parasite" (2019) will be included on the syllabus of the university's modern Korean history course.

      The decision follows growing international interest in the director after "Parasite" won the Palm d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival last year and was nominated for the Golden Globe and Academy awards.
