    That happened to me Watching Maljuk, except the subtitles were about 3-4 seconds ahead. Actually, that was annoying as hell.

    Some more just came to mind:

    My Boss My Hero Mobster has to complete high school in order to be given control of a territory, but ends up going to a corrupt school.

    My Wife Is A Gangster The head of the mob is a woman, and her sister's dying wish is to see her married and have children. Of course, it's a comedy.


    I think the success of Maljuk can only be accredited to the fact that they used that particular actor for the main role. Sort of like using Brad Pitt/Johnny Depp in a crappy movie.

    But the fight scene on the roof made up for it.

    I've heard of both, but never seen them. I've heard Boss is hilarious though.

    Am I the only one who hated My Sassy Girl? Ugh, that annoying ****.

    Kick The Moon is great. It's about a gangster and a school teacher competing for the affections of a woman, but it gets a lot more complicated. There's a Korean guy who has jerry curls in the movie, so for that alone it's worth seeing.

    What about Shilmido? That movie was huge in korea. I didn't see is when I lived there though as my korean is terrible. I'll admit that sex is zero is probably one of the funnier movies out there if you like jokes about dicks and jerkin off.

    Old Boy was great.

    The massive fight in the corridor was just so OTT it's not even funny. :D

    Is this the same movie as Attack the Gas Station? My friend wouldn't shut up about that movie after he saw it a couple years ago.

    Shilmido is about the government taking death row inmates and secretly training them to assassinate the North Korean president. It takes place shortly after the Korean War. It takes some pretty hard lefts from the assassination plot, but it's worth a watch. They have the real TKD. I can't remember if it was based off a true incident or not.

    And yes, Gas Station Incident is the same as Attack the Gas Station.

    I watched this weird Korean flick about this guy who gets sucked into a videogame. It has references to "the little girl with matchsticks". Oh and at one point of the movie he wields a raygun that really is a makerel, and it pwnz (the gun, not the movie). At one point he disarms his opponent who has gotten a hold of said ray gun...by making it swim through the air to his hand.

    Any idea what it is called?..I need to watch it again to make sure it wasn't a lucid dream
