'Tis the season for Korean movies!

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) ;)

Not directly movies.. But I found this stream yesterday:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FD2ZtEs4fWs

And found myself watching Korean TV for hours by now (currently I seem to be alone "1 watcher" <--- that's me! :D)
You guys seems to have this corona virus figured out.
I'm really impressed!
Both on how you handle the situation, you even have cinemas still open( I'm baffled!), and by this TV station. You guys really send everything in English?
Is this common or just this particular station?

Anyway... back to watching TV :D
