Have you gotten the chance to see I Saw the Devil? I've been hearing nothing but good things about it and after watching the trailer... you can see why. The Korean DVD & Blu-ray is due out soon.[bBvideo 620,385]

Yes, I've seen it and it is an excellent film. The director has really pushed the boundaries of Korean cinema with this, and the two leads excell in their roles of hunter/prey. But be warned, you need a strong stomach to watch some of the scenes. I gotta be honest, a few times I felt like looking away, and I've been violent movies since before I was a teenager (I'm now 34).

My Top 5 (in no particular order. except for #1)

1. Oldboy (2003)

2. A Bittersweet Life (2005)

3. I Saw the Devil (2010)

4. Joint Security Area (2000)

5. Tell Me Something (1999)

Honorable mentions:

The Man From Nowhere (2010)

The Housemaid (2010)

Shiri (1999)

Memories of Murder (2003)

City of Violence (2006)

The best action/espionage Korean drama series I have seen is IRIS. The story might not be that original but the presentation is amazing.
