The performances of the actors also add to the richness of ‘Parasyte: The Gray’. Jeon So-ni perfectly plays the dual roles of a parasite and a human, from action to inner acting. The actor who gives the greatest strength to director Yeon Sang-ho, who said, “I am struggling with popularity,” is Koo Kyo-hwan. Koo Kyo-hwan demonstrates his unique presence by expressing his rough and dark inner self with a harsh tone of voice. Sometimes lightly, sometimes seriously, he holds the center of the work more firmly than any other character.
