A reader of the site has forwarded me a film that I’ve not heard of before, and giving we could all do with a little light relief at the moment, I am very excited to watch the below romantic-comedy from North Korea.
No English subtitles but let me know what you think! Hopefully I will get around to adding it to the database soon…
Favourite Young Man (마음에 드는 청년) 1989
It’s by no means a complete list, but compared to the rather basic lists offered by IMDb and Wikipedia, I’ve put together the most comprehensive list of North Korean films that I am aware of.
Using several books such as Korean Film Art and Contemporary Korean Cinema and a number of other website, the list is intended as a reference that can continue to be updated.
Film years, Korean names and correct romanization of Korean names are the biggest weaknesses of this list, so if you have any updates/additions you want to make, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. A permanent link to the database will be always be at the top of the site and also here.
