EXCLUSIVE: Watch Lee Myung-se's M for Free on MKC


MKC is once again delighted to present a Korean film to view directly here on the site. We recently teamed up with streaming service DramaFever to bring you the best in Korean films, and part of that involves co-premiering some movies and this week's film is M, Lee Myung-se's 2007 mystery/romance that is quickly becoming a classic of Korean cinema.

Featuring Gang Dong-won as a writer who struggles to come up with his next hit novel, M is a prismatic work that explores the complicated fabric of human memory and emotion. Though initially billed as something of a romance, Lee's film leans more towards arthouse aspirations yet its undeniable beauty and absolutely singular vision make it one of the very best Korean films out there.

Please enjoy this terrific work from one of Korea's very best directors, whose vision has oft times proven too powerful for the studios that have hired him. Sadly, Lee is struggling to make his next film and M still stands as his most recent production.

The below video for M will be live for the next week and is only available for viewers in certain locations, including the US and UK. If you have any trouble head on over to DramaFever and be sure to check other great films for free over on DF's movie page!
