'Tis the season for Korean movies!

Unread post by crazyquark » Wed Dec 18, 2019 12:31 am

A year ago I discovered the wonderful films of Mr. Park Chan-Wook.
I knew of Oldboy but had never seen the original so I took a deep dive, a year later I share with you my list of great Korean movies:
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls091808163/

I loved Parasite and I tried to see anything by Mr. Bong, and I am also coming around to Sang-Soo Hong even though but his style is a bit too arthouse cinema for me.

The last movie I've seen is "A Taxi Driver" and before that, I saw "Train to Busan". Just amazing movies, especially "A Taxi Driver".

What are your favorite Korean movies?
(Oh, and no daytime dramas, please :P )

P.S. depending on where you live, you might still catch Parasite in cinemas.

Right, there're lots of outstanding movies. :)

A few movies popped up in my head.. Actually these are the movies I watched recently though.
Anyway I think you'll like this movie too; "Gukjesijang aka Ode to my father" (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3812366/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1)
If you want to cry, try to watch "Nim-a, geu-gang-eul geon-neo-ji ma-o" (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4063314/?ref_=ttcrv_crv_tt) ;)
