The Classic

Just seen it after having it on my computer for almost a year mainly because some people said it's really boring and yes, the start was a bit slow, but it turned out to be one of the best romantic movies I have ever seen, and I don't even like romance movies all that much. The Classic however has a great story and so many beautiful scenes (like the rain/umbrella scene).

As so many others that liked this movie have already said, this one is truly a 'Classic'.

Last weekend, I managed to watch Oasis - which was really extraordinary story and extremely good acting by both the main characters. I also watched The Temptation of Wolves which was good too. The 3rd movie I watched was Memories of Murder. It was a really good movie and good acting too.

I normally don't watch k-movies because I like dramas better, but I have seen two.

I heard a lot about 200-pound beauty so I put my drama-viewing to a stop and decided to try it out. it turned out to be really good! Funny and touching at the same time.

I don't understand the hype over My Sassy Girl. It was really confusing for me so maybe that's why I didn't really like it. But there were a lot of funny parts nonetheless.

Oh yeah, and I saw about 30 minutes of Tale of Two Sisters. By myself. Never again will I do something that stupid. I am too scared to finish the rest.

200 pounds of beauty was the best kmovie. Kim Ah-joong was so adorable. I begin to like her now. And her voice was just so sweet and She could sing so good. I love all the songs in the movie

Well, for now, mine is

I love:

1. Maundy Thursday (aka Our Happy Time): YOU WANT TO CRY YOUR EYES OUT. GO Ahead. I'm serious. No terminal disease, no accident. You can just cry....I fell in love with Kang Dong won here.
2. 200 pounds of beauty: hottess one right now. Fun and touching. I kinda doubt about her voice to be THAT good. But anway, great movie, great OST, great storyline
3. Welcome to Dongmakgol: Best anti-war movie I have ever watched

I'm okay with:

4.. Art of seduction: I am not totally into it but I had good laughs
5. Holy Daddy: Touching.
6. Beauty and the Beast: again, don't like it very much but enjoyed.
7. My tutor friend: predictable but cute.
8. Sex is Zero: okayyyy, I'm not talking about the sex scenes but a good lesson. Other than that, the show is kinda dirty.

One that hasn't been said yet is "Marriage is a Crazy Thing" aka "Crazy Marriage". I absolutely loved this movie. It's a dark comedy, sort of in the same vein of American Beauty. GREAT Movie.

I've decided to go on a k-movie maration. I don't know why. I just feel like it.

Here are movies I'm thinking about watching:
The Classic
A Moment to Remember
The King and the Clown
Windstruck
...ing
Il Mare
Maundy Thursday
3 Iron
He was Cool
100 Days with Mr. Arrogant

Here are the very few movies I've seen:
200-pound beauty: Loved it.
A Millionaire's First Love: Pretty good. Confusing though.
My Sassy Girl: Funny, but so confusing I could barely enjoy it.

Am I missing any "Must See" movies or should I take off my list any "Stay Away From" movies? As you can see, I tend to find k-movies confusing. Maybe I'm just really stupid or something. So if you can, please recommend some of the more 'simpler' ones...

K-movies are inherently confusing, and if you don't "get it" you might end up not appreciating it as much as you should. To be honest, the best korean movies are usually the ones that leave you slightly baffled and require you to do further research on the internet to understand what it all means.

Some of my most favorite k-movies fit that category:

- A Tale of Two Sisters (Very confusing and open for interpretation, need further research and re-watch to know what it means. One of the best horror films)

- Il Mare (Based on time travel which is always confusing, but it's best not to think about it too much)

- The Classic (Love story based on 2 different time periods, not really confusing)

- My Sassy Girl (Once again this one has hints of time travel in it and can be quite confusing, but to me, has one of the most beautiful endings I have ever seen)

- A Moment to Remember (Based on a terminal illness, but despite that, I really liked it. Son Yeh Jin is amazingly beautiful there. This one isn't confusing at all)

- Spider Forest (Confused the hell out of me, and I still don't get it. But it's one of my favorites)

But if you want to watch k-movies that aren't confusing then I recommend romantic comedies such as The Art of Seduction, Seducing Mr. Perfect etc....don't watch horror since almost all of them are open for interpretation.

I've been watching Korean movies for over a year now and since then I haven't seen a single Hollywood film. K-movies require you to think as opposed to Hollywood films where you sit back, eat popcorn and watch cars explode.

^ I know what you mean, I've been watching k-movies straight for almost 4 yrs....

anyway, I'd recommend.

my sassy girl
bittersweet life
daisy
typhoon
the art of fighting
gangster high
the big scene
save the green planet
silmido
no mercy for the rude
temptation of wolves
maundy thursday
duelist
my wife is a gangster (all but the 3rd one)
marrying the mafia (all but the 3rd)
volcano high
Welcome to Dongmakgol
sympathy for mr vengance
sympathy for lady vengance
(I wasn't too crazy about oldboy, but i find Yu Ji-tae very attractive ~)
Guns and talk
Tae Guk Gi
Arang
The King and the Clown
Tale of two sisters
200 lb beauty
the host
the high rollers
sunflower
mr socrates
my little bride
Righteous Ties
radio star
puzzle
he was cool
too beautiful to lie
JSA
The classic
ice bar

I can go on.... but seriously check out work from certain directors you like, or go by actors' filmographies. Most actors are very choosy about the types of roles they will accept, and you can bet the movies they appear in are really good.

^whew...i thought i was the only one who found k-movies to be confusing.
What I didn't understan about My Sassy Girl was not the time travelling part but how they met and then why they broke up.

I just finished "...ing" (weird title). But it was an okay movie - easy to understand at least.
Thanks for the suggestions guys!

^haha, but isn't that whats so great about them?

for instance, I watched No mercy for the rude & Puzzle (both out in 2006) a while ago, but I still can't help mulling those two over. There's so much compacted in there, in such a short period of time..... its so unique.

hopefully k-movies can stay that way - the US film industry is already up in arms about it :glare:

I don't remember any time traveling part in My Sassy Girl.

I assume everyone has seen this movie. If not, why not? So I put this whole plot in the spoiler.

[spoiler]She gets drunk on the anniversary of her boyfriend's death. Get saved by a guy who turn later turn out to be the death boyfriend's cousin. They go through weird courtship. She still can't get over the death of old boyfriend. He figures out there is a dead boyfriend, he don't know it's his cousin yet. They decide to separate for a year. She didn't show up after 1 year, because she in England still getting over her dead boyfriend. He decide to go to England to meet her. But before he leaves, he meets aunt, who been pestering him about this girl she been trying introduce to him since the anniversary of her dead son.[/spoiler]

I think the edits in the beginning confuse you. It begin one year after they buried their messages. The passport photo session for his trip to England, that happen near the end of the movie. The call was from his aunt to meet her. Notice he wearing the same suit in the photo shoot as in the end scenes in the train station and restaurant.

Yeah," My Sassy Girl" is quite confusing but it turns out great in the end. I like the sweet ending which is super duper funny! I can't stop laughing when see the ending ^^

Another good movie that i would like to recommend is "He Was Cool". I don't know why but i love this movie so much. Eventhough the movie kinda a-fairy-tale-like story, but somehow,there is something good about the movie. The actors are brilliant in acting and they know how to build a strong chemistry. I've watched this movie for many times and never get bored =D

There was nothing directly to do with time travel in My Sassy Girl but there were hints of it. Like the old man by the tree actually being the guy from the future. Something else as well but I can't remember since it was my first K-movie a long time ago.

Another MUST SEE is Oldboy - This one truly epitomizes Korean movies. Powerful story telling and imagery with a great twist. Not for the faint hearted though, since it has some disturbing moments.

For hollywood type blockbuster action then I recommend Typhoon and 2009: Lost Memories. Both very entertaining movies and under-rated because they're not typical K-movies.

Horror is still my favorite genre when it comes to K-movies, since even the "bad" ones are entertaining. You need to watch Phone for the best performance by a child actress ever!

Anyone seen My Girls Boyfriend? I thought it was hilarious! The narrative has a very similar style to the drama Soulmate, in the way the story is told in flashbacks and how the 6 character's lives somehow intertwines. Only this movie is much more explicit - The are several sex scenes which may not be suitable for persons under 18 :-) It also has a very clever twist at the end which had me cracking up. :lol

It's not the most insightful k-movie you'll ever see, but it sure as hell is entertaining.

Although I've watched many Korean movies these are the ones I recommend the most:

A Bittersweet Life - Awesome in every way possible, this is the movie for me that took Korean cinema to another level. Just watch it!

Tale of 2 Sisters - Before "A Bittersweet Life" Ji-woon Kim made this movie. I've never liked movies in the same genre like Ring and The Grudge. This one has an excellent plot to go with the acting and superb direction of Ji-woon Kim.

Old Boy - Although the story is sickening this movie is well made in every way.

My Sassy Girl - The chemistry between the lead actors is amazing, this beautifully shot film gives me the nice fuzzy feeling.

I have to agree. That little girl was very convincing and talented in a I'm-freaked-out-as-a-viewer" sort of way.:blink "Phone" is actualy a pretty decent Korean horror flick.

OLDBOY -i think it might just be my fav. krn movie-the twist is sooo brilliant i did not see that coming at all. but if u don't like pormiscuous stuff, don't watch this. it's gory too. i like the director's style, but the other 2 movies of this trilogy wasn't as clever at all.. EXPLICIT scene.

Bystanders/Diary of June-talks about a boy who's bullied in class and detectives trying to solve the murders going on around it. there's a twist, but not too unpredictable.

Daisy- love triangle. one guy's an assasin and the other's a policeman, pretty good.

A Moment to Remember- cried a lot in this one! about a grl who has alzheimer's i think? forgetting memories stuff

A Millionaire's First Love- so who hasn't seen this yet? haha. Hyun Bin, wat else needs to be said? the grl's super pretty. and even though it was confusing, it was really sad and cute. i love the OST =]

She's On Duty- haha kim soon ah is super funny! and the guy's not bad looking either (from coffee prince) kim soon ah's working undercover at this high school to get info on this grl's dad.

The Classic- sweet. involves two generations' love stories.

My tutor friend- gosh the guy is so hotttt. this poor college grl tutors a rich/badass high schooler haha.

Maundy Thursday/our happy days(?)- about a suicidal woman who visits this guy in jail every thursday. pretty sad/depression but really good.

Sex is Zero!- it's supppperrr funny. haha even though it's a lot about sex, the main guy's pretty sweet and caring :D it's like krn version of american pie. EXPLICIT scenes.

The Beat and the Beauty- MUST WATCHHH!!! it's sooooooooo cute and FUNNNYYY :D about a grl who was blind and has a pretty ugly bf. and then got surgery and was able to see again, so the bf gets scared and runs away hehehe. sooo funny.

Taegugki- about war. won bin is in it, so obviously a MUST WATCH!

i'm a cyborg, but that's ok- pretty crazy/unique film. but good nonetheless. it has rain in it!! This grl's sent to a psychiatric ward and thinks she's a cyborg, there she meets ppl like rain who tries to solve her prob (and in turn i think his own prob?)

spring, summer, autumn, winter, and spring- about a lil buddhist kid that lives in the center of a river w/ his master. coming of age story. EXPLICIT scene.

King and the Clown- about entertainers who became trapped in the king's palace. the king likes the really feminine guy (lee jun ki) and i think his best friend likes him too... haha but it's not stated obviously. very unique/good movie.

The Duelist- didn't care much abotu the story, the cinematography is really pretty though. especially when the two lovers fight.. i read it's supposed to rep. them making love? but don't worry it's nothing explicit haha.

3-iron- omgosh jae hee plays this role soo wellll. it's about this guy who always goes into ppls' houses when they're away and lives there, then he cleans their house as payment for rent/food. so he's basically like not seen in the world. he meets a woman who's abused by her husband and they live together for a while without EVER speaking to each other. i loved that part about the movie, how the movie can carry itself forward even w/ no words for like 30 mins.

Time- by kim ki-duk again. about this girl who's insecure about her boyfriend's feelings about her and goes to get plastic surgery. the beginning and end tie together, although it doesn't make much sense. EXPLICIT scene.. kinda i think.

Princess Aurora-about a mom who tries to take revenge on her daughter's murder. EXPLICIT scene.

Sad Movie- yeah.. very sad. I like how it had all kinds of relationship stories.



enjoyable movies:
-Love Me Not
-200 Lbs Beauty
-...Ing
-100 days w/ Mr. Arrogant
- My Girl & I
-He Was Cool
-Temptation of Wolves
-The Host
- My Sassy Girl
-Windstruck
-The Host (although kinda lame plot...)
-Too Beautiful To Lie
-My Little Bride
-Lovers (ughh VERY EXPLICIT, but i like the unique ending)
-Almost Love
-Fly High (main guy from over the rainbow! he's hott :])
-See You After School


i really love movies directed/written by Park Chan-wook(Oldboy) and Kim Ki-duk(3-iron), although they're all on the darker side of krn cinema-reason why it's more artistic/clever/unique.






do you guys know any good 2007 movies and like where to watch them? i use crunchyroll but they've been taking a lot down recently =[

]When I think of Korean Movies; these movies just come off in my mind:

A Moment to Remember - great actor, actress and story ... tearful and meaningful
The Classic - the ending just gave me goose bumps.. so nicely made..
My Sassy Girl - Everyone likes this one, I mean who doesnt?
Windstruck - tearjerker (totally)
Too beautiful to lie - I just have this thought of relating it to "My Girl" which I really like

And recently I watched this movie by Kim Rae WOn - SUNFLOWER- totally- a must see movie!!!!!!!! it really would touch your heart.. really2 jinzza!!!!

Well from what I've seen so far:

1. The Perfect couple - Ah full of everything, romance, comedy, action. Main guy is HOT main girl annoying but still everything about this movie is so lovable. It really reminds me of police movies back at 90's

2. Art of Seduction - It's just too funny and crazy. Just how did they find each other, what a bad luck xD

3. Seducing Mr. Perfect - Funny, light hearted, romantic comedy who wouldn't like things like that?

4. Flying Boys - It was simply good. Kinda touching but still just an ordinary movie. More like slice of life.

Anyone seen the movie called Soo? It was liek wow so violent. I remember some movies like Kill Bill, Passion or Christ and Apocalpyto being violent but compared to Soo... they are just child's play. in a way it was an awesome movie even though there were these certain cliques and stuff. But man it's something when a guy tears someone's ear with bare hand or plucks eyes out with fingers with disgusting sound effects. Or being stabbed, shot and hit and still keep straight face. It was an awesome movie I so wanna see this from big screen.

Just "SOO"?? Never heard of it
I was looking through the lists and many...and I mean MANY have the same movies. Korean Movies sorta declining in Quality these days? Or do we wait for DVD-RIPS, and that's why I don't hear of good movies out lately.

For me, I've just started watching K-Movies, I've only watched like...5 or less~
Iin Order I watched
1.Sassy Girl - awesome
2.200 pounds of beauty- I thought it was even better~
3.My Tutor Friend - tee hee nice
4.Too beautiful to lie - Same Actress, it was ok
I'mi gonna watch the Classic, I dunno whatever you guys say lol

@Maakopla...hmm you seem familiar :P

hmm. May be cuz I use my username erveywhere
some forums I'm on:
sv loyalty, esthetique, box cutter, anikei (retired T_T), x degrees, manga rebels

Now that I think about it... Legend of Seven cutter was pretty good too. I dunno if the plot was original but I liked it. It made laught a lot and I didn't feel bored watching it. Good cast, amazing actors, pretty actresses added to that makes it even better.

But yeah Soo is amazing movie. everyone who likes action, violence and blood should watch it. (it's not like i'm a crazy murderer I just like it sometimes) And if you just wanna see something different from lovley dovely stuff just grab Soo.

Duelist~I just loved that film
Tale of two sisters~I thought it was amazing I wasn't expecting the way it ended,took me by surprise,which I think is great because most horror/thriller films that are out you can usually guess what's going to happen or tghe tension just isn't there...
there are a couple more that I've seen but I can't remember the names
