Top Korean Films of 2010

10. Secret Reunion

Jang Hoon followed one of Korea's best debut films, the exceptional Rough Cut (2008), with a big tale of intrigue chronicling agents and spies from both sides of Korea's DMZ.  Established star Song Kang-ho and up and coming heartthrob Kang Dong-won electrify the screen in this surprising tale of unexpected camaraderie which explores many big questions of Korean identity and separation anxiety.  Secret Reunion is at the same time an engaging thriller, a buddy comedy and a weighty drama and true to Korean style, the combination of its many elements is very successful.  Jang, a former Kim Ki-duk protege once again crafts an intense and fascinating exploration of the male id in contemporary South Korea.
