In an interview with Ilgan Sports, A.C.E reflected on their appearance, saying, “It was really an honor to be able to participate in a culturally significant event and congratulate them on their awards."
And that's not the only connection! A.C.E's director and editor Kang Hyun-gyu was third assistant to Parasite's cinematographer, Hong Kyung-pyo.

Fans pointed out their acting abilities, too. Can A.C.E snag a cameo for the upcoming Parasite HBO series, or can they?
This is exactly what we need: more diversity and representation in film and music (which includes K-pop)!
I'll leave you with this thought. Go Parasite and go A.C.E!
