Top Korean Films of 2013

6. Non Fiction Diary

2013 was a great year for Korean documentaries but of everything I saw, Non Fiction Diary is the one that has stayed with me the most. The debut film of Jung Yoon-seok, by highlighting some of the darker Korean headlines of the 1990s, taps into the period’s odd atmosphere.

Jung's film hints at a dark underbelly that was uncovered by the contemporaneous liberalization of Korea with a film that works as an intriguing mood piece of the times. Intense, engaging and just a little menacing, Non Fiction Diary is a fascinating snapshot of Korea's evolving national psyche in the 1990s.
