2013 Korean movies in Singapore (Mar-Apr)

Gone are the days when Korean movies take months to arrive in Singapore and the only ones that made it to our shore are usually the major blockbusters (which may not be the best in quality anyway).

Looked through the upcoming movies in Singapore and I’m super happy that they are bringing a few of the movies that I was eyeing and lamenting that I couldn’t watch it because I wasn’t in Korea.

Stoker (Opens 7th March)

Okay, this one is not really a Korean movie. But it’s the hollywood directorial debut of Park Chan Wook, the director of Oldboy. Basically my all time favorite movie. Park Chan Wook is also one of the most famous directors in S.Korea and it’ll be interesting to see if Stoker retains his usual style or if there’s something different.

Helter Skelter (Opens 14 March -R21)

YES FINALLY I’VE BEEN WAITING. Okay my blog post seems to deviate from the title as of now, but THIS. I’ve been meaning to catch this ever since I saw the trailer and I’m super glad they are bringing this here.

Confession of Murder 내가 살인범이다 (Opens 14 March)

Finally a Korean movie 😛 I’m pretty surprised that they are bringing this to SG, because it’s not really a blockbuster hit, nor does it feature the top Korean stars that locals will be familiar with. Oh well. I’m definitely watching this, but I’m not sure if I can compartmentalize my brain perfectly and keep out that Park Shi Hoo scandal while watching this…. ><;

Masquerade 광해 – 왕이 된 남자 (Opens 28 March)

Pfft. March is eating up my money. Yes, I’ll pay to watch this again. Masquerade exemplifies all the traits of why I love Korean movies. Lives up to its hype – beautiful in both the plot and cinematography. Guess it’s gonna become a classic. Like The King and the Clown.

Don’t cry Mummy 돈 크라이 마미 (Opens 11 April)

Another movie that I’m surprised they brought in. But it’s definitely gonna be worth the money. Even the trailer is enough to get to your guts. Or heart. Really happy that they are showing a wider genre of Korean movies in Singapore.

Codename: Jackal 자칼이 온다 (Opens 18 April)

With Jaejoong starring, I guess this will be the most popular and hyped up movie here? 😛 This will probably be the lowest on my to-watch list, because I’m not really a fan of the genre. We’ll see! haha I like Oh Dal Su though! Ajusshi scene stealer.

    I wishing for the day when Korean movies will also be shown here in the Philippines. With the exception of My Sassy Girl many years ago, we only get to see Korean films during Korean Film Fests (and worse, not on film).
    Now I know where to go in case I won’t be able to go to Korea when “The Five” premieres. ㅋㅋㅋ

      ㅎㅎㅎ hope it will be showing in the Philippines!! If not, I think the premiere (and seeing Kim Sun Ah there) will be enough reason for you to fly over right? 😛

      I think that movie was released earlier in Korea too. And perhaps subbing 광해 was a more difficult job.

    Ehhh helter skelter was horrible. It was like watching an av. Av= adult video. I would say dont watch it. Just check out the streaming video online.

      D: The trailer looked really good though!! But I love the use of colors in the movie so perhaps I’ll give it a try! 😛 I haven’t seen a Japanese R21 movie before.

    Speaking of 왕의남자, I think I’ve watched that film more than 5 times. My ultimate favourite. Plus it has a brilliant soundtrack.
