Top Korean Films of 2010

7. The Servant

Korean period dramas are often a mixed bag but every so often the genre yields an excellent film and such is the case with The Servant, an erotic period drama from first time director Kim Dae-woo who previously penned Untold Scandal (2003) and Forbidden Quest (2006).  The film is a twist on the famous Korean pansori tale Chunhyang, charging the classic story with eroticism and intrigue.  One of the most beautifully shot Korean films of recent years and featuring some great performances, including a superb supporting turn from Ryoo Seung-beom, The Servant is everything a period drama should be, wonderfully crafted and engaging.  Not to be missed for any fan of the genre.
