The South Korean film “Parasite”, which has won this year’s Academy Awards for Best Movie, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Movie in a Foreign Language, has broken a record as the most-watched Oscar-winning movie of the past 12 years in Turkey.

The South Korean production directed by Bong Joon-ho was watched by 62,990 viewers in Turkey in the week of Feb. 10 and a total of 225,692 people viewed it in Turkey overall.

The production’s box office revenue neared four million Turkish Lira and the worldwide revenue exceeded $175 million following the award season that “Parasite” dominated.

Following the story of two families, a wealthy one and another that moves in the former’s home as servants, the mixed-genre film was produced with a budget of merely $11 million.
