I'm not a big fan of Korea, or K-pop, but we must admit that South Korea has rapidly growing from economics to entertainment world, especially music and cinema, for this past few years, while 10 years ago, not so may people know about South Korea. and now, Korean "Boom" is like everywhere, from music, drama, products, movies, even make up look!

1. OLDBOY (2003)

An average man is kidnapped and imprisoned in a shabby cell for 15 years without explanation. He then is released, equipped with money, a cellphone and expensive clothes. As he strives to explain his imprisonment and get his revenge, Oh Dae-Su soon finds out that his kidnapper has a greater plan for him and is set onto a path of pain and suffering in an attempt to uncover the motive of his mysterious tormentor. -IMDB

One of the best plot for Korean movies, with a nice twist! The original thriller, crime movies, who makes viewers trying to guess the ending or the reason why Oh Dae-su kidnapped for 15 years. Eventough, the genre it self is thriller crime, but still there's a comedy scene from the Oh Dae-su's clumsiness. I can't say more about this movie, because it will ruin your curiosity of the plot. JUST WATCH!

These were later transformed into a best-selling book and the movie follows the book closely. It describes the meeting of Kyun-woo (Cha Taehyun) and an unnamed girl. Kyun-woo is shamed into assisting the girl because the other passengers mistakenly think she is his girlfriend. Once he helps her, Kyun-woo develops a deep sense of responsibility for her which enables him to tolerate (somehow) the girl's abuses. - IMDB
