This is the very first Korean film that I watched that featured Korean actresses and I liked it. This film was a movie that I was very excited to see because it was shot in Korea and stars Korean actresses. I would say that this film was more of a Korean version of Wild Things which was a Korean movie that I liked but wasn't really the same film. This film is more of a comedy movie than a horror movie and the Korean film's plot is more of a horror movie that focuses on the characters and the characters get more attention then the horror. However, the Korean film also does have a nice ending. Overall, this film was a good Korean horror film. If you like Korean films and Korean actors then this film will definitely appeal to you.

This is a dark comedy about a man who lives in a haunted building that haunts the dreams of its residents. We have the usual cast including Min Seok-kyun, Kim Sang-kyung, Kim Han-hee, and even a mysterious character that is never seen in the film. The movie is a little short with only 20 minutes, and also has a short recap of the first 20 minutes. The story is good and not too predictable, although some of the scenes might be a little slow. The acting is okay, but it's not the best in the world. The background score is pretty catchy and also adds to the film. The action scenes are very well done, with the fighting scenes done by pretty skilled martial artists, with the best being a Chinese guy named Yu who is known for the fighting skills in the film. The cast also includes members from the director and producers group of the film, and I was quite surprised to see that it was not a Korean actress that was casted. There are also many familiar faces that appear in the film. For example, the guy who plays a karate master in the film and also the creator of the haunted building in the film. I think this is a nice Korean film and is very well worth seeing.

First off, let me start off by saying that the movie is absolutely fantastic. I was absolutely enthralled from the very beginning. It is such a fun movie and I love the acting. The script is filled with the main character getting lost in the story and everything just seems so perfect. The casting is amazing as well. The supporting cast are absolutely wonderful and it is such a great way to start off a movie. When the movie began I was worried it would just turn into another gangster movie. But after a while I got bored and wanted to go back to the theater to continue watching. The movie is a great story that just happens to have a lot of violence. However, the violence doesn't get too much and it's not too boring. The movie is great and I give it a 10/10. Enjoy the movie and I hope you do too!

How can one describe this movie without making it a Comedy? This is one of the few Korean movies to be rated on the IMDb site as a Comedy, not just a Drama. And its the most pleasant to watch, so if you don't get bored while watching this movie, you can enjoy all the moments in this movie that would make you laugh. It is one of those films that you have to watch, you will miss nothing. And it is not the kind of films that you just enjoy the end and forget about the whole movie. You will have a hard time forgetting it, but you will have to watch it over and over again and you will still have to watch it for the end.

This movie is not a bad one but it's definitely not the best movie I've ever seen. There are some interesting scenes, like the sword fight, but it's too long. My main problem with this movie is the story line. The movie starts with a murder. Then, there is an attempt by some mafia to escape from prison. And then there is a sentence that was left behind. I think that the story is too complicated, but I have to say that the movie is very fun.

It is not difficult to understand why some people found this movie hard to watch. In my opinion, this movie was very good, but there is one thing I don't understand, why did they choose to cast a middle aged man as the main lead. I understand that a lot of people thought the movie was very weird, but I was able to overlook that because of the main character, and I still think that actor was a good choice. Overall, I believe this movie was very good, but if they had cast a middle aged man instead of the main lead, then this movie would have been much better. It is really hard to find movies that are so good that people don't like it, but that is the case with this movie.

For once, I watched a movie without expectations. I'm not saying that I wasn't expecting something. What I was expecting was an Asian movie where the sex is actually funny, and the dialogue is awesome. And this is the best of the best in my opinion. This is a great example of how a film can be made to the point where the entire audience feels like it is in on the joke, and so the whole atmosphere of the film becomes so much fun that you forget you're watching a film. The set, the costumes, the lighting. The whole film just feels so good and alive. It's just amazing. The acting is awesome, and so is the storyline. It's filled with laughter and suspense. It's just such a great film, and you will have a blast watching it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It reminded me of "Seulong-geum-ah" (the work of the same director), except that it's in Korean and it's on video. I have a friend who was born in 1980, and I would like to say something to him, too. He never saw "The Gatekeepers" when he was a child. Now that I've seen it, I've decided to purchase the film on video, and I plan to see it again. I'm also thinking of watching it again on DVD, and I hope it's available. I think it's well-acted, the musical score is great, and the story line has its "big moments". I think I'd like to see it again, but I would probably have to wait until it's available on DVD.

There are not many films that inspire people like this one. The creative writing of the film goes beyond what we see on screen. To say it was inspired by any films is an understatement. The film's originality is, of course, in the storytelling. The script in this film is unique in many ways. There are many different plots in the film. We follow the lives of a group of Korean people, who are traveling to South Korea in order to live, work, and enjoy the life. Their journey is also an adventure. In the end, all their friends are reunited and they travel to South Korea. They are the reason why I'm writing this review. The story in this film is fantastic. It is fun, adventurous, and entertaining. It is a film that requires the viewer to watch carefully and learn to appreciate the nuances of the story. I had the opportunity to watch this film with an audience that was truly enjoying it. It is great to see that this is how Korean people are with their stories. The director did an amazing job in the cinematography and sound. The production of this film is great. It is not an average production. The sets, the camera work, the costumes, and the music all work perfectly. It is very much worth seeing the film. There are many things to like about the film. The story is fantastic and the characters are very well-written. In addition, the performances are very well-done. The actors of the film all fit the roles they are given. The characters are not perfect, but they are also not very unlikeable. There are a few parts where the characters seem like they are trying too hard. They are trying to be funny, but they also have a sense of arrogance. There are some parts where the actors become angry at one another and the actors lose their cool. However, all these things do not diminish the actors' performance. The actors are in the film so well that they become the story and the characters become part of the actors. I have seen the film twice and I am glad that I did. The second viewing was better. The second viewing was not a traditional film. There were many things that I noticed in the film that were unique to this film. I am excited to see what is to come from the director.

I don't want to bore you with the plot but I feel like the story is telling us something about South Korea's emerging international relationships. The movie tells a story about a drunken man who is traveling to a place where he is supposed to work in a factory but finds his group is short, so he decides to try to break the fast with a group of Korean prostitutes. While there he discovers that the prostitutes he is with don't speak Korean and are skilled in the art of lying and deception. After this, he discovers that his journey to get there is really not the most important thing. And this movie does an amazing job of showing the intertwining relationships between the Korean and Chinese people in the city. It has a lot of humor and even an amazing love story, so if you're into that sort of thing you'll enjoy this movie.

This is a cute movie. The story has a serious effect on your heart. It makes you think of the love and the pain of our race. And also, you might feel a little bit depressed during the film. The movie is good at giving the impression of the coldness of the world that Koreans have experienced during the Korean War. The cast of actors is great. Doo-seok Jang is the best among the actors. He is so believable. The movie is also funny. It has good music and funny comedy. It is a good movie for all the people who love to laugh and also for those who like to see a good Korean film. My rating is 7/10

I liked this movie. It was funny and the visuals were fantastic. I was surprised to see how well-made this movie was. It was a good example of how a low budget can be a great asset to a movie. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves movies with great visuals and great comedy.

One of the best Korean film i've seen. Very entertaining movie with a good storyline and good cast. It's a good film to watch for people who are fans of western movies and also for those who don't know what western movies are. The story is very interesting and the story line was very good. There are plenty of little jokes in the film and the movie had a good music. The movie had a good story, and it had a good screenplay. The best thing about the movie was the actors who played the main characters. It was a good cast. My favorite of the actors is Jung-su Kang, who played Ji-hyun. He was really funny in the movie. I think the movie was good, because it had a good story and it had a good screenplay. It was a good movie to watch.

Hwang Jang Lee's The Banker is a little quirky film, and so are the characters in it. As the title suggests, it's a comedy, though it has many of the same basic elements as the Asian hit, When Calls the Heart. The difference is that the latter was made in America, which means you have to have an American audience to appreciate it. For those of us who do not know Asian cinema, that's not a big deal. The films in this genre tend to work better as comedies, but it's nice to see someone like Lee making a film with so many of the same elements in it. There are many elements of the film I like, but I don't want to ruin it by telling you. Lee does a good job at putting you into his character's head, and he also uses the camera to great effect. The camera is always in the frame, and there's a lot of foreshadowing that's done by the characters as well. It's a little weird, but I thought it worked very well. A lot of the comedy is based on the characters' behavior, but I thought the characters were also very funny. It's a little hard to tell if there's a plot going on here, because the whole point is that Lee is telling us about his life, but at times I just wanted the camera to just jump out and tell me what it was. However, I think it's not the main thing in the film. The plot is a little convoluted, but you can just tell that the director wants us to have this one question hanging in the air, "What's going on?" The film is basically a comedy, but there's some serious stuff in it, and I think it works. The film is obviously intended for an American audience, but it's hard to deny that there are some familiar elements here. It's an excellent film, but it does have some flaws. The production is a little bit choppy, and the characters are sometimes a little hard to tell apart. The film is also very uneven. Some parts are quite funny, and the film really needs to do more work with the editing. While the film is not bad, it doesn't really hit the heights it might have. The film is hard to judge, and I can't say it's a must-see for everyone, but I think it's worth checking out. The movie is a little weird, and it could be better, but I still enjoyed it. It's certainly not a must-see, but it's an interesting one. It's a good film, but it's not a great one. 7/10

The film is the sequel to the original film "The Secret Life of I" which also starred Lee Byung-hun. This film is set in the 1960's when the Korean War was raging between North and South Korea. The film revolves around the movie star Lee Byung-hun who is in love with the movie star Jeong-hyeon from the same time period. As she lives in the same apartment complex with him she is constantly taken by his servants, but she has feelings for him and makes him promise to take her to the movie star's house when he is on tour. It is a good movie for the fans of the original film who liked the sequel. This is an entertaining film that has some good comedy. I really enjoyed this movie and give it a 7/10. The film is one of the best Korean films of the 1980's and the last film of the 1980's.

I first saw this movie on a matinee when it came out in 1980. I had no idea what it was about or who the lead character was. But as the story unfolded, I became a fan of the movie. This is a great movie to show kids about the Korean War, as it was a critical point in Korean history. I would recommend watching this movie if you enjoy South Korean culture or history.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a Korean movie released in 2013. It is the second movie with Bruce Lee in which he plays a martial artist and he has now won the Oscar for his performance. This movie is set in 14th century China where a Chinese martial artist named Lee Chun-Ding and a Chinese peasant named Chun Tzu-Wei meet and they are immediately friends. The history of China is very important to Chinese culture. It is the heart of their culture. A legendary emperor is living and he decides to conquer China and there is a peasant that is defeated by the emperor's men. Chun-Ding has an idea to kill the emperor. He decides to set out to find the emperor and Chun-Ding has his two friends with him. The first half is very funny, the second half is very emotional and it has some kind of conflict between Chun-Ding and Chun-Wei. Bruce Lee's performance is fantastic and his two friends are very funny. There are many more funny scenes but the first half of the movie is more funny and more emotional. This is my favorite Bruce Lee movie and I think this movie is more fun to watch than any other Bruce Lee movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone that likes comedy and action.

The film is, at the time of writing, the second film to have won the Palme D'or at Cannes Film Festival in 2008. The previous year's winner was The Artist (Philippe Mora, 2009). This film is a very funny and original film. It shows all aspects of Seoul, and it also has a strong storyline and some good twists to it. It's also one of those films where the first 15 minutes are extremely funny and have a very unique sense of humour. The second half of the film is very good, but it is very well put together. There are many funny scenes that stick out in your memory. This film is very entertaining and a good watch.

I got the chance to see this film on a bus trip with two other Korean friends. We couldn't resist the urge to sit down to watch a movie like this and we were pleasantly surprised to find it to be a well thought-out and amusing film. The film centers around two school friends who are obsessed with idol movie Star Wars (which they both love) and they get together to try to save the stars from being stolen. A dog and a mouse is thrown into the mix and the film turns into a bizarre, well-acted, and well-directed comedy that is full of funny situations. The movie has some really cute moments and I really enjoyed the combination of the characters and the gags they pull. I really liked how the movie turned into a character-based comedy that was funny, but didn't have as many dramatic scenes as the previous Star Wars films. The film also has some good laughs that are just enough to keep you entertained. This is definitely one of the better Korean Star Wars films I've seen in a while.

Korean film The Lovers are a good comedy. They are entertaining and the way that this movie is filmed has a good sense of humor. It has some really good comedy scenes that bring back memories of the Korean films from the 70's and 80's. And if you like Korean films, then you should see this movie. It has some really good songs in the movie and is a good mix of comedy and drama. I really liked this film. I rate this film 7/10.

Dong-bin Hong-hae was a powerful and respected official of the Juche regime. His long-term love for an ambitious younger sister-in-law (young girl) was a "bridge" between the two families. But after she was arrested and sent to prison, he could never see his beloved sister-in-law again. He is now a wealthy young man and tries to reunite with his beloved sister-in-law. While his brother-in-law tries to stop him, he secretly gets to know her and falls in love with her. This film is a romantic comedy but not a romance. It's a very funny film about two family members who fall in love. The film has many funny moments and is funny in a funny way. I think the comedy is quite well and entertaining. The story is very good and the film is enjoyable to watch. My favorite scenes are the ones where Hong-hae has a date with his girlfriend. The way Hong-hae talks to the girl is so funny. The scene where Hong-hae goes to a restaurant and talks to the waitress about how he is from the home of the family that made him is also funny. The film is a comedy and it has some funny moments. It is a good film for those who are interested in romance or comedy.
