All About Hallyuwood - Korean Movies!

Pick a genre, any genre, and it’s definitely there in Korean Cinema or K-movies for short. K-Movies are just as amazing and addicting as their drama counterpart but presented in a more bite size format. Instead of binging 20 hour long episodes everything gets nearly wrapped up in 2 hours or less. So if you are like me and love k-dramas but, do not always have the time for a series, K-Movies will definitely fill in the void for you.

1. What is Korean movie?

Korean auteurs have been known for taking risks and defying genres. They produce thrilling art house films, but also big budget action movies and endearing comedies, and there are as many fantastic revenge tales as there are heart breaking stories of love, family, and redemption.

Hollywood, a compound word combining the word Hallyu (Korean Wave) with wood from Hollywood, is the informal term popularly used to describe the Korean-language entertainment and film industry in South Korea.


3. Three main reasons why Korean Movies are so good!

  • Instead of directly projecting a hero and a villain concept, all the characters are having their own valid¬†reasonsfor their behavior.
