Classic Korean Cinema

My focus on this blog is to deliver content focused on modern Korean cinema (which I would say began in the late 1990s) which is often referred to as New Korean Cinema (the timeframe for this is up for debate) but not to be confused with the Korean New Wave of the 1980s and 90s. However, I do feel that it would be good to discuss older Korean films, in an effort to provide better context. Therefore, films like The Housemaid (Hanyo, 1960), Stray Bullet (Obaltan, 1961), The Surrogate Woman (Sibaji, 1987) and A Petal (Ggotip, 1996) will also be featured on this site.
