5 Must-Watch Korean Movies Before You Die


On days when I’m bored to death, the best way to have a good time is by playing at bingo sites like New Look Bingo. With free games and loads of adrenaline pumping action to look forward to, I have literally nothing to lose. Another great way to kill time is to watch a movie on Netflix. How can one go wrong with that? Korean movies are very special to me. They have a huge genre of movies: from gory movies and cute love stories, to deranged storylines and heart-wrenching plots, I find them way better than most of the Hollywood flicks I’ve seen.

Listed out are five top Korean movies that all movie buffs ought to watch:

5. Mother

4. I Saw the Devil

The movie portrays a tale of revenge and murder. Kyung-chul is a psychopath who kills for pleasure, and his latest victim is the beautiful daughter of a police chief and a pregnant fiancee.

3. My Sassy Girl

The movie is based on a true story after Ho-sik Kim posted on the Internet his relationship with his girlfriend. A man meets a drunk girl on the train, and it changes his life forever. The movie was later adapted into a novel.

2. Miracle in Cell No. 7

This movie will surely make viewers go “Awwwww” and render them speechless. Even if you aren’t the mushy type of person, this movie is a must watch. The movie is about a mentally challenged father who is wrongfully imprisoned on molestation and murder charges. He was assigned Cell No. 7 with maximum security and hardened criminals. Giving out any more details would be a spoiler. However, the ending is incredibly heartwarming.
