Korean movies you should be watching

Oldboy
 The second of the vengeance trilogy by Park Chan-Wook and definitely the most awesome, this is the best non-american movie made since the city of god. A story about a man who gets locked in a room for 15 years and when he gets out, seeks revenge.



The Chaser
An awesome movie about a pimp whose prostitutes start getting killed and he sets off to find who's responsible


Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance
The first of the Chan-Wook's Vengeance trilogy, the story is about a kidnapping that goes horribly wrong.


The Good, The Bad and The Weird
A very fun korean western, modeled after the good, the bad and the ugly. You will never get bored during this movie

I LOVE 'The Host', my first favourite Korean film has to be 'I'm a cyborg, but that's okay' That film had me in stitches laughing
