Top 10 Korean Films of 2015

8. Gangnam Blues

Considering that Yoo Ha’s A Dirty Carnival may well be the very best Korean gangster film out there and that the genre has yielded recent gems Nameless Gangster (2012) and New World (2013), Yoo’s latest film Gangnam Blues had a lot going for it. Though praised for its extraordinary aesthetic, not everyone was bowled over by the film’s familiar tale of brothers entering crime before being torn apart, but its hard not to get sucked in by its period setting and the fascinating look it provides at the less than salutary beginnings of Seoul’s most famous neighborhood.
