My Top Favorite KOREAN MOVIE

Assalammualaikum and Hello everybody !

I know that I barely show this side of me but YEAH.. I am KDrama, KMovie KVariety KPop maniac! Hahahaa.. (yang rapat dengan i tahu laa). I've been watching Korean drama/ shows since I was in my study time. Don't get me wrong.... sometime.... I know Korean Celebrity more than I know Malaysian Celebrity. Huhuuu... I know.. I'm bad.. Sorry! Hahahaa..#NotSorry

Basically, the qualities of their drama/ show are the main reason why I love their shows more. The story line, the acting skills and sometimes they manage to bring us along in the scene and make us feels like we're at Korea. Hahahahhaaa.. *you know what I mean

Don't worry guys... Korean MOVIE normally takes up to 1.7-2.4 hours only. NO LONG drag EPISODES! Hahahaa.. I tahu some of you tak suka cerita yang episode bersambung panjang-panjang kan.. Hahahaaa :P

WARNING: Most of the movie I shared is suitable for adult (18++) only, because some of it might contains violence/fight/killing scene or some action that are not suitable for kids. 

 10. My Annoying Brother 

Movie released: 2016
Starring: Jo Jung-suk, Do Kyung-soo and Park Shin-hye

This movie is about the love of siblings. Well, you know the phrases "Blood is thicker and Water" something like that.. Well, this movie shows it all! Of course, expect to be tearing up because you know the siblings-love-relationship has different feel to it. It is something that you can't explain or express. 

Trouble-maker brother that come home after a long time to his disable little brother (who used to be National Judo athlete but have to quick it dream because he loses his sight permanently). Slowly, their relationship started to grows time-to-time until...... jeng jeng jeng.. pergi la tengok :P

 8. Big Match 

Movie released: 2014
Starring: Lee Jung-jae, Shin Ha-kyun, Lee Sung-min and BoA

At first, I'm not sure what this movie all about.. the reason I watch this movie because the main actor is Lee Jung-jae (A-list actor in South Korea). I just get along and watch it at the beginning and when I slowly understand the flow/ story-line.. I started to jaw-drop! DAMN this movie is actually good!! How come no one talks about it??? This movie kinda opens my eyes that this type of "game" or "criminal" does exists?! Hahaaa.. This is an action comedy movie. So much fun to watch

A former UFC mixed martial arts was arrested as a prime suspect for his brother disappears and then, one day he got a phone calls from Ace saying that he can save his brother if he play "the game".. It is conducted by Ace for Korea's wealthiest to bet-money on with real people in real-time using high-tech gadgets and CCTV cameras to control them. Can he follow Ace's instruction to save his brother??  Best weyhh..

 7. Luck-key 

Movie released: 2016
Starring: Yoo Hae-jin, Lee Joon, Jo Yoon-hee

It is claim to be an action comedy film but I think there is more comedy than action! Hahaha.. Well, Yoo Hae-Jin acting skill always the boom doesn't matter what character he try to act. Hehee.. I wasn't expecting much when I'm watching this movie but the story-line is pretty good! I like the twist and the comedy side of it. 

Story about a man (Yoo Hae-Jin) who is an assassin that suddenly lose his memory and trying to remember his identity while living a life as extra actor. Meanwhile another person (Lee Joon) is stealing his Identity because wants to live a luxury life. This is where the mystery slowly starts to unfold. *tengok jangan tak tengok~

 6. A Taxi Driver 

Movie released: 2017
Starring: Song Kang-ho, Thomas Kretschmann, Yoo Hae-jin, and Ryu Jun-yeol 

This is an award winning movie that based on a real-life story!! This tragedy actually happened in South Korea known as "Gwangju Uprising" in 1980. I recommend you guys to watch this as an eye-opener for you to see the real situation that happen and we can learn from this.

A German journalist come to South Korea trying to expose the real story to the world about the tragedy that happens at Gwangju, where the government trying to "cover-up" the situation. Even the Korean people (out of Gwangju area) not aware of the real situation that occurs, because not everyone can cross the border easily. The story begins when a taxi driver from Seoul unintentionally becomes involved in the events when he drove the journalist to Gwangju. **Okay..okay, jangan pening sangat.. Hahhaa.. Worth of watch!

Hahahhaaa.. This movie shows how this rich people take advantage of innocent people to take the blame of their wrong-doing. DAMN! Imagine one day you wake-up and get arrested as a murderer.

 1. Man from Nowhere 

Movie released: 2010
Starring: Won Bin, Kim Sae-ron

This movie better known as "Ajusshi", one of the successful movie in South Korea. This is an action thriller movie with violence and killing scene! I loveeee the story-line especially on how they portrays the situation of black-market, crimes, gangsters and more. This kinda open my eyes what really happen out there (dark-side). But sadly, this is also mark as the last movie we see Won Bin act. 

If you haven't watch it yet.. GO and WATCH IT!! It's not too late.. It's only been 10 years.. Hahahhhha :P *sarcastic 

The story of a mysterious man or also known as "ajusshi", who runs a pawn shop in his neighborhood. He don't like to communicate or get close with anyone except this young girl as she regularly come to the pawn shop on her mother behalf. One day the girl is kidnapped and he trying to safe that girl. Wowww.. you mess with the wrong person dude! 

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


The lists that I mentioned are based on my personal preferences. Most of the movie I shared somehow show the life lesson and the real-situation what really happens out there. I have to admit it guys.. Most of Korean Movies qualities are so good that makes you "absorbs" to the movie right away. TRUST ME!

To be honest, I have more of  KMovie/ KDrama that I'd like to recommend. Do let me know if you want to know more yeah. Hehhee..
