In my university subject, Digital Asia, we viewed the host whilst we live tweeted. The lights were off and we sat in a classroom viewing together. The Host (2006) is a South Korean monster film. “The film concerns a monster kidnapping a man’s daughter, and his attempts to rescue her. According to the director, his inspiration came from a local article about a deformed fish with an S-shaped spine caught in the Han River”. Before this class I had no idea what this film was and what to expect.

I was born and raised in Australia with an Australian cultural upbringing. I grew up on vegemite, laminations and fairy bread while watching ABC.
