    Well… korea + korean movie (especially touching one) = more sales than any “foreign film” in a given week. Especially one that didn’t have any asians in it let only korean people hahahaha

    I’ve not seen it. It’s probably some really weepy romantic cr@p where the lady dies at the end and the man cries for 20 mins. Once you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.

      ^ The description says it’s a documentary about a 20 year old mystery about a child abduction case…I doubt their is any melodramatic love story in this movie.

    • blah says:

      Gordon – Watch the movie before passing judgement. It’ll make you look like less of an idiot imbecile.

        Sorry, I was too busy looking at who won the oscars for the best actor and best supporting actor..

        ..and the best director. What was that? British what?

        • Feck_U says:

    I am definitely watching it!
    Korean films are amazing. Great storyline, great acting from all the caste even the extras unlike other film industries, great background music (most of the music composers are living geniuses), great visuals; Korean films has the most interesting and creative visuals, much props to the cinematographer, lensman and the director…the technical aspects of movie making like directing, cinematography and editing is praise worthy.

    When I watch films I usually drift towards the technical aspects so in that respect I truely enjoy Korean films…Korean films such as the above are always touching and effective….

    sounds really interesting.. but i doubt you were talking about the box office hits in America right now

    Looks like Popseoul doesn’t understand the meaning of the word “documentary.”

    • Roger says:

      is that like when Koreans write a film about when they stole dokdo of japan and then bored/spammed the world into calling the sea of japan .. “the sea of i love korea (but I don’t know where korea is)” . Because that would be a shyte documentary.

        stop being a fucking hater and hop off bitch. you fuckin rasist mother fucker. why are you fucking here if your gonna bash koreans.

        • Book says:

          I think you’ll find I didn’t say anything racist. Are you in the Saviours of Korea (S.E. Asian Branch) or something? Or just another american trying to have some heritage and failing miserably?

  7. dingdong says:

    where can we watch this movie?

  8. King Pop says:

    Popseoul, get a life, seriously, “Children” ranked #1 & “Black Swan” ranked in #2 in KOREA and not in U.S., so what’s the big deal…Hey Popseoul, can you tell how many Korean movies made the Top 20 or 30 or 40 or 50 in the U.S. in any week??? NEVER, ZERO. So shut the F**K up. Not even in Top 100. It’s funny that every week, in Korean Movie Chart, at least 5 or more U.S. movies are ranked in top #10 but you never, never see Korean movies ranked in U.S. Movie chart…Hey Popseoul, a lot of smart people out there, so don’t try to fool people or make up stories…please!!!
