With so many intriguing programmes and shows available on Netflix, viewers now spend hours deciding what to watch for the evening or day.
Korean dramas keep becoming better and better, from “Train to Busan,” “Parasite,” to “Squid Game.” Here are some of the classics that Rotten Tomatoes recommends you watch!
The Call Lee Chung Hyun’s 2020 thriller film “The Call,” based on the critically acclaimed 2011 British and Puerto Rican film “The Caller,” tells the storey of two people from two generations who are brought together by a mystery phone call.
“The Wailing,” a thriller and suspense film directed by Na Hong Jin, is ideal for adrenaline seekers. The film tells the narrative of a police officer who becomes obsessed with investigating a serial murder case and an outbreak of sicknesses after her only daughter succumbs to the same ailment.
The 2018 psychological thriller film “Barn Burning,” directed by Lee Chang Dong and based on best-selling novelist Haruki Murakami’s short tale “Barn Burning,” explores the narrative of two childhood friends who reunite in a perilous circumstance where both of their lives are at jeopardy.
Hellbound \Another masterpiece by Yoo Ah In to add to the list! “Hellbound” tells the occult and pagan myth of sinful humans who are one day doomed to hell by mysterious supernatural entities of huge size.
Yoo Ah In plays an occult head of a new religion in the drama. Park Jung Min, Yang Ik Jun, Won Jin Ah, and Kim Hyun Joo are among the veteran cast members. The drama was regarded as “exceptional” and “a drama wrapped in the lightest type of thrills that will undoubtedly be spoken about even after a decade” by the British daily The Guardian.
Next to “Train to Busan” and “Parasite,” Hwang Dong Hyuk’s survival game series “Squid Game” is probably the most well-known South Korean masterpiece. The plot centres around a survival game in which hundreds of indebted participants risk their lives by participating in a series of dangerous games in order to win the ultimate prize.
