South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon Ho won’t direct a superhero movies though he is drawn to them and the reason being the costumes are too tight! As per reports, the sight of people in tight-fitting clothes suffocates him and poses great difficulty mentally for the 50-year old filmmaker.
What’s with tight costumes one may ask, but the filmmaker was quoted in reports as having a personal problem with them and said that he would never wear something like that. Seeing people wearing tight clothes seems mentally difficult for the South Korean director.
“I have a personal problem. I respect the creativity
that goes into superhero films, but in real life and in movies, I can’t stand
people wearing tight-fitting clothes. I’ll never wear something like that, and
just seeing someone in tight clothes is mentally difficult.
“I don’t know where to look, and I feel suffocated. Most superheroes wear tight suits, so I can never direct one. I don’t think anyone will offer the project to me either. If there is a superhero who has a very boxy costume, maybe I can try,” Joon-Ho said.
The South Korean director is popular for his feature film Parasite, a black comedy. Recently, the film was announced as South Korea’s official entry for the best international feature film category at the 92nd Academy Awards.
