** Here’s 5 movies that you can binge this weekend.
Starting off the list is Alive, a korean zombie horror film starring Yoo Ah-In and Park Shin-Hye.

Watching these two actors try to survive and plan out their next moves will grab and hold your attention.
2. The Call
Park Shin-Hye and Jeon Jong-Seo Are the leading roles in this thriller and what a wild ride this was. When I started watching this movie, I thought it was going to go in a certain direction but it did a complete 180 and turned into a completely different movie. Park Shin-Hye and Jeon Jong-Seo manage to communicate to each other through a phone even though they are living 20 years apart from each other. What starts out as seeming innocent friendship, quickly turns into a cat and mouse game.
3. Illang: The Wolf Brigade
In the future, North and South Korea are preparing to merge as one, this of course comes with a lot of political unrest. In response, a special police force called The Wolf Brigade is created. If the name of this film sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because this film Is a live action version of an anime called Jin-Roh The Wolf Brigade and has quite a cast. Gang Dong-Won, Han Hyo-Joo, and even Shinee's Choi Min-ho are in this. While this film is filled with action, it does have human elements to it that make it feel more emotional.
4. Svaha: The Sixth Finger
This is a thriller and mystery film staring Lee Jung-Jae, Lee Jae-Jin, and Park Jung -Min. Lee Jung-Jae portrays Pastor Park, who goes to various religious groups and exposes them as being fraudulent in various such as being pyramid schemes.
