The Weekly Review Round-up is a weekly feature which brings together all available reviews of Korean films in the English language (and sometimes French) that have recently appeared on the internet. It is by no means a comprehensive feature and additions are welcome (email pierceconran [at] gmail [dot] com). It appears every Friday morning (GMT+1) on Modern Korean Cinema. For other weekly features, take a look at Korean Cinema News, and the Korean Box Office UpdateReviews and features on Korean film also appear regularly on the site. 

To keep up with the best in Korean film you can sign up to our RSS Feed, like us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter.


  1. Pierce, Genkinahito has been doing some Korean film reviews as of late. I noticed you didn't have his June 7 Arirang review here, so you I'm guessing you haven't seen his website. He's got two Korean reviews this week as well.

    Hope you are enjoying Korea!
