I must say my favorites that I have seen is the

1. Shadowless sword

2.Bichunmoo

3.Sword in the moon

4.The Legend of Evil Lake ( Just finished it !!!)

5.Shadows in the Palace

I didn't like a tale of 2 sisters , It was just to slow & darkly filmed for me ( kind of like the "red shoes" )

SORRY nicklord1 !

But I think Shiri is great ! I have seen way to few Korean movies so I am not the best judge, but I love the five listed !

My faves so far:

Tae Guk: Brotherhood of War: Best War film ever in my book

A City of Violence (on of my top 10 ma films list)

Musa: The Warrior (would have been best war epic imo if they had better cinematography/editing)

Looking forward to their John Woo Remake...

The City of Violence was the first Korean martial arts film I saw and was hooked. But A Bittersweet Life is absolutely INCREDIBLE.Oldboy was crazy, sick. Princess Aurora was pretty good for a revenge flick. Also Sympathy for Lady Vengeance.

Bittersweet Life, I have this movie but I'm yet to watch it so maybe after I see it I could add it to my list. Also, I watched City Of Violence yesterday, I watched the first half over a year ago and just watched it all again yesterday finally, wasn't too impressed, some cool scenes but overall I wasn't that impressed.
