Korean movies are way more different than to any Hollywood films. They are pretty special than any other movies out there. Some say it’s quite addicting while others claim that it’s not just your typical story at all.
Like what Thought Catalog said, once your South Korean movie list starts to grow, Hollywood films will seem very “familiar.” Maybe a lot of you will either fall in love with it or will be inspired by it.
Ranging from action and horror to romance and comedy, Korean films have a lot to offer to every movie maniac out there, Enki Village even noted that if you’re lucky enough, “you can get a mashup of them, all in one package!”
This coming Christmas, one of the most interesting and relaxing to do alone, is to watch unlimited movies that can surely make your day totally different. No need to do anything, just popped some popcorn, lay down to your bed and laugh.
