Korean films

Recommended Posts

Hey! Can anybody give me some names of some good Korean movies that are fairly common in the DVD stores in China? I've been reading a lot about how Korea's film industry has become fairly good.

Have you watched "Shuri" which was produced 4 or 5 years ago? It was good but since it is very political, I wonder if it is available in China.

I recommend:

Oasis

and

Plastic Tree

I like these, because they are not just CGI-filled nationalistic flicks or cheesy comedies, but fairly serious critiques of Korean culture.

Cecilia Cheung in 白蘭 is good. But the movie is sad, old-fashioned and boring IMHO.

The spirit of Jeet Kun Do is also a great film.

What about Winter Sonata (冬季戀歌, 겨울연가)? I heard this TV series has been real popular in Japan.

Winter Sonata (冬季戀歌) is GREAT (but it is a TV series not a movie). I have the DVD set, and would recommend it to anyone who likes such kind of melodrama, pretty faces, beautiful scenes, and nice songs/music.

But when you watch it you must only enjoy what you see and what you hear and never question whether the story is reasonable. 8) (i.e. 聽故(事)唔好駁故...)

During my trips to China last year, it occurred to me whenever I saw a TV (no matter if it was in Dali old town, Lijiang old town, etc), this drama (dubbed in Mandarin) was being played. (Or maybe it was that people turned on the TV to watch it whenever it was broadcast, and that was all the time!!) And I saw it on TV in Japan this year. Bae Yong-jun (裴勇俊) is hot. :wink:
