South Korea is not only known for where Samsung and LG came from. Actually, they are more associated into the best television dramas that hit the worldwide, dubbed or subtitled in English but still making each one of us cry. But because of the craze on Korean dramas, we managed to check out the Korean movies too and the reception is remarkable.
I’ve been a Korean Movie fan for past ten years now and I must say I can tell you what normally a typical Korean movie is about. If it’s a drama, it is about a girl who has either needs a new bone marrow or has Alzheimer’s disease that makes her forget the love of her life. If it’s a comedy, it will star a very pretty girl and a very odd-looking Korean guy who jaw-drops every time he sees the very pretty girl. If it is a horror (although I haven’t watched any horror Korean film except for the Tale of Two Sisters), everything scary will do actually. For crime thriller Korean films, the genre extends to the vast stories of typical crime thriller film; from serial killer to mafia to high-ranking mobster.
Crime thriller Korean films are very accomplished genre that gave various film festivals to take a look at. This is the same reason why most of these films are purchased by big Hollywood producers and will do English remakes. But, as a Korean movie fan, I have told you and will keep telling you – it won’t work that way. Korean films are good as they are – in Korean setting, with Korean actors and Korean language.
