    Supporting. In terms of “lead”-ness, it was Choi Woo Shik > Song Kang Ho > Cho Yeo Jeong > Park So Dam, but none of them were lead.

    Very obviously supporting. As it’s said above, she’s at most the fourth biggest role.

    Everyone in that movie was supporting in my mind.

    Clearly supporting. Only the main family leads the film.

    Supporting, obviously. The character that’s the closest to be the lead is Ki-woo/Kevin, but actually the film is an ensemble movie so the entire cast is supporting.

    While I definitely agree that she is Supporting, it’s interesting that she was thrust into Lead at some of the Korean based awards (I think she even WON a Best Actress award over there).

    I also agree that the film is the true definition of an ensemble, but if I were to put anyone in Lead it would be Choi Woo-shik.

    Cho Yeo Jeong should’ve WON Supporting and its a shame she wasn’t nominated…and it’s even more frustrating knowing that it was at the expense of a performance on the level as Laura Dern’s and also, it isn’t like PARASITE was some obscure movie. It did WIN the award after all. It’s just a shame that foreign performances are still difficult to have break through, especially among Asian actors.
