I Saw The Devil.

I think it's the only one I've seen, that I know of anyway. I do love it though. I wouldn't mind seeing some more really, I've heard they are generally pretty damn good.

Damn, korean movies are still widely unknown to a wider audience, what a shame. But most likely, they won't appreciate it.

The mother of all korean movies, of course, my beloved
  • Old Boy
  • All Park Chan-wook films
  • A Bittersweet Life
  • I Saw the Devil
  • Crying Fist
  • Casshern
  • Dolls
  • The Man from Nowhere
  • Mother
  • The Housemaid
  • Be-devilled
  • The City of Violence
There are surely more, but they don't spring right now into my mind.
