5 Most Romantic K-Films!

To celebrate the season of love this month, we have compiled 5 of the most romantic Korean films of all time! Here are our picks:

The Beauty Inside   (2015)

Imagine waking up each morning to find that you are a different person.  This film’s premise is that the main character starts each day as a different person, and as a result he is unable to enjoy anything more than a brief one-night stand, because he is not able to let others know his condition. Then, when he meets Yejin, he falls in love with her and must show her he loves her each day as a new person.  The end has been known to have viewers in floods of tears.

April Snow (2005)

The winter landscape is the setting of this masterpiece. The main characters meet in hospital after their partners were involved in a car crash. When they discover on a mobile phone that they were both involved in an affair, they begin having one of their own. Son Yejin conveys enough emotion for this to be very moving.

A Moment to Remember (2004)

Also starring Yejin Son (the hardest working actress in South Korea), this is about a builder (Jung woo-sung) who meets and falls in love with Sun-jiin. Their love is tested when she develops Alzheimer’s disease.

The Classic (2003)

This stars Yejin Son again as a girl who is asked to send emails on behalf of another girl who is too shy to tell the object of her affection how she feels. As she does so, she begins to see the similarities of her mother’s life and the film’s parallel narrative is divided between the present and the past with both of the parts played by Son. 

My Sassy Girl (2001)

The ultimate Korean dating film. We reckon most men who have watched it fantasised about a Korean girlfriend, even after seeing all the hoops poor Tae-hyun is forced to go through in order to please The Girl (Jun-ji Hyun).

When he meets her on a subway train, he is forced to look after her when she drunkenly falls off the subway platform.  Soon, they start dating and he must take her on dates to theme park rides, barbecue bars and clubs. It all looks like so much fun. It’s been re-made, and there is a sort-of sequel, but no other Korean film has been able to match the madcap, screwball feel of this film.
