  1. Hi!

    Thank you for this awesome site! I have seen some of the recommendations you have given and have thoroughly enjoyed them.

    I really like the mystery movies in general, just wondering if there are mystery movies that don't involve crime out there.


    1. Unfortunately can't think of any like that right now :(

    2. Thanks for this site, I have seen some of the recommended movies and they were grate. I have seen other shows and what action and acting.

    3. Do U knows the name of the movie where they are in a forest, there are mobsters and kickass boss fights and the hero has a bad ass sniper rifle and A SWORD!!! The twist ending was that these two have been battling it out for centuries and it all has to do with the girl....does this ring a bell?!?

    4. It's Japanese movie called Versus :)

  2. Won't you try to update it with new arrivals from Korea??? Seems great collection.. upto now i have seen almost 10 out of these.. Update it Man!!

  3. Hi, great list with a few I'm gonna check out.

    Just wanted to say theres a film called 'A Moment To Remember", which is the greatest romance movie i've ever seen (shits on The Notebook). I recommend if you havent seen it already.


  4. Great stuff.....I have managed to acquire almost all of them

  5. My Way ...a superb war movie ...korean

  6. Masquerade (2012)

  7. Wonderful site! Thank you, this is just what I've been looking for!!

    I just watched Silenced/The Crucible yesterday. Was wondering if you've seen it :)

    Also, I recommend Bleak Night, if you havent seen it. It's absolutely amazing.

    Thank you for the reviews!

  8. Hi! I would like to recommend:
    "A Tale of Two Sisters" and "Moss"

  9. don't forget shi-gan (time)
    i think it is one of the best movies of all time

  10. help on what website will i get these movies. my net speed is 2mbps. thanks.

  11. Fantastic site, keep the new recommendations coming!

  12. try on piratebay. almost all movies are available.
    Please upload some more recommendations!
    Request from India.

  13. Thanks very much for going to the time and effort to set up the site. I've seen a couple on your list and your comments on those are spot on. Oh dear more movies to watch on the advice here and so little time to do it in. A delightful dilemma.

  14. Thanks a lot. Keep on adding new films to the list.

  15. Please update With latest movies. -From india

  16. A great list, thanks! I also really recommend Cyrano Agency!

  17. The Harmonium in My Memory - semi autobiography of Ha Keum-chan, 'Female Student' & "Always"...............
    and a great performance from Min-sik Choi in "Nameless Gangster: Rules of the Time "

  18. I was so deeply moved and touched by this wonderfully crafted Korean movie. i used to love the action packed suspenseful thriller movies, but sometimes, when a rarely find wonderful romantic movie could also melt my stubborn old heart deeply trembled with the ultimate soft feeling of a human being. what i'd like to point out here is that the koreans actually are the most romantic race in the world, it's so contradict to what they usually showed to other people. the formulaic Korean national characteristics being cruelly portrayed are obnoxious, stubborn, arrogant, impolite, impatient and sometimes, very illogically unreasonable. but these are actually wrong, because deep down in most Korean hearts, they are just so helplessly romantic, otherwise, they won't be able to produce so many wonderful break-your-heart tear-jerking romance dramas in both TV and movies and, if they are good, they are not just commonly good, they are crazily fantastic!

    you should get rid of what you've already become and watch this movie with the tenderness that still not die in your heart. and i sincerely believe that after watching this movie, you would feel better and become a nicer person, temporarily, of course.

    About : The Harmonium in My Memory & Always
    In Honor of KOREAN KWAK'S FAMILY in Sydney Australia

  19. good list. I should recommend to add couple of more (maybe not so popular but still good in my oppinion):
    Art of Fighting (2006) "Ssaum-ui gisul"

    My Love Yurie (2007) "Nae Sa-rang Yoo-ri-e"

    both have some subtle humour which I really enjoy in movies

  20. No mercy (2011) ... can anybody create torrent for 720p and share

    Thanks in advance

  21. i'm looking for a movie/drama in korean/japanese in which the female lead can see colors around people by which she's able to tell their emotions, also if they are lying or telling truth
    pls help.

    1. 'Girl Detective Park Hae Sol'
      This is a mini series which has 4 episodes.

  22. You forgot A Moment to Remember, Sunny, Silenced but very disturbing.

  23. Seom
    Nameless Gangster

    1. Yes these need to be on the list as well.

  24. I am an Indian, but a big fan of Korean movies. Think you have missed Memories of Murder here...

  25. A tale of two sisters need to be on this list as well. Great and intelligent horror film.

    1. Agree. It's one of my all time favorite movie.

  26. Am looking for educational Korean movies that relate to cultures..thnx n advance.

  27. Thank you for your nice website. I love your selection. I have seen most of the ones before 2010 but I feel like I want to see them again and discover the recent ones. You can see my top 5 I posted a while ago on a french website:

  28. Public Enemy is a great film, as are the sequels. Also a film called Black House 2007 which was pretty good. Also you haven't listed any of the Whispering Corridors movies which were very influential.

  29. what a list buddy i have collected and watch almost 10 films from the list they are outstanding. please upgrade the list .please...

  30. This is great! By far THE most comprehensive list covering such a vast array of genre's. Thanks! Thanks!

    "A warewolf boy" for the depth of character potrayed by such young actors. Amazing.
    BEWARE : most horrendously heart wrenching movie.

  31. Very nice list. After living in Korea for a few years I gained an appreciation of Korean cinema. Haven't seen all of them but Memories of Murder tops my list. Brilliant film. I'll add a suggestion of 'Breathless' (똥파리: Shit fly) to the list.

  32. there is a movie called the thieves. this movie was releases in 2012. one of the best comedy and heist film with one of the best climax. A little complicated but one can enjoy it regardless...

  33. I'm a Thirst, 3-iron, saw the devil kind of guy, like movies they try to make an art with music and great cinematography.

    Check "Bedevilled" its one of those movies.

  34. Glad I came across your blog. What a great job, aesthetic and interesting information. Thanks

  35. no sunny?

  36. i strongly feel, Perfect Number should be there n your list..

  37. I'm an Indian and have watched every movie here. I keep wondering why the rest of the world is still taking time to catch up with you guys. Really amazing movies you guys make. Holly and Bollywood is just apeshit.

  38. Wow your site is great I can't believe it took me so long to find, I just watched Happiness for Sale and I would agree with Old Boy being on the top... and the background is really nice..

  39. Take a look at R-Point =
