However, some netizens found this disrespectful to the people living in the poverty stricken area.

‘Parasite’ Film Locations As Tourism Location Sparks Heated Debate

Some have stated that they would have been offended if they were residents in that particular area. Others have called it a “sales of poverty porn”.

But some netizens also pointed out that Seoul City never mentioned anything about poverty and that it was just to attract tourists to the film locations of a famous movie.

How do you feel about the situation? Is promoting the area as a tourism spot being inconsiderate for the people who live in the neighborhood?

Feel free to share your thoughts.
