Watch 125 Korean Feature Films Free Online, Thanks to the Korean Film Archive
If you’ve kept up even casually international viewing habits over the past 15 years, you’ve watched a Korean movie or two. Maybe you’ve enjoyed the unusual tonal mixture of Bong Joon-ho’s political satire/monster extravaganza The Host, the elaborate grotesqueness of Park Chan-wook’s revenge thriller Oldboy, or the slick Hollywood pastiche of Kang Je-gyu’s North-versus-South heap of spy-versus-spy action Shiri. But look just beyond those high-profile international Korean blockbusters and you’ll find the most vibrant, adventurous cinematic culture active today.
Upon discovering it, they personally got excited enough to move to a Korean neighbourhood, study the Korean language, and dig deep for knowledge about the Korean filmmakers whose names even cinephiles rarely bring up outside Asia. You’ll find it rather easier to immerse yourself, now that the Korean Film Archive has come to Youtube.
