Ericsson Pulls Out Of MWC 2020 For Corona Virus
Coronavirus has now killed more than 800 people - the vast majority in mainland China - and infected 34,800 others. MWC 2020 will begin in just a few weeks but the fears continue as more cases have been reported in recent days.

The story of the Kim family - who are played by veteran actor and frequent Bong collaborator Song Kang Ho alongside Choi Woo Shik, Park So Dam, Chang Hyae Jin as his grown children and wife - Parasite casts a stark light on financial inequality, especially when it comes to the struggling Kim clan. Neon, the studio behind Parasite, additionally just lately bought the rights to the movie and will give it a quick theatrical launch earlier than it hits residence video. Parasite is being hailed by critics as the best film to emerge this past fall, earning 99% on Rotten Tomatoes. Since it's domestic release in October, Bong's riveting yet darkly comedic commentary on class divide has grossed over $35 million at the box office, becoming one of the Top 10 highest-grossing foreign-language films ever released in the US.

And "Parasite" distributor CJ ENM, already one of South Korea's biggest media companies, was up 4.5 percent in the main Kospi market. It was the first time a non-English film won Best Picture in the award show's history. It is the first South Korean film to win an Oscar and the first foreign-language film to win best picture.
