Hello the following 6 movies are movies I've seen that I'm recommending to you!

The Silenced:

Length: 1 Hour and 39 Minutes
Released: June 18th, 2015
Genre: Mystery, Horror, Friendship, School
Main Cast: Park Bo Young, Park So Dam, Uhm Ji Won
Synopsis:
"Back in 1938, when Korea was under Japanese colonial rule, Joo-Ran is transferred to an all-girl's boarding school in Keijyo (old name of Seoul). The principal there exhibits exemplary behavior to all of the students, but she ends up showing her darker side to Joo-Ran, who gets close to knowing the school's biggest secret. The girl learns of another student with the same name and she tries to figure out the hiddenstories that happened at the girl students' dormitory."
My Opinion: It's more of a mystery than horror. The movie sort of loses it's horror aspect a little over half way through. I think it should be noted that the cast was wonderful and most if not all of them spoke both Japanese and Korean in the film.

The Magician:

Length: 2 Hours and 2 Minutes
Released: December 30th, 2015
Genre: Historical, Romance, Drama, Fantasy
Main Cast: Yoo Seung Ho, Go Ah Ra
Synopsis:
"A Princess in the Joseon Dynasty travels to the Qing Dynasty to marry. On the way to there, she meets a young magician and falls in love with him."
My Opinion: If you like Disney movies I think you'd like this one! This is quite possibly (in my opinion) the only thing I've seen Go Ah Ra in that I haven't complained too much about her acting.

Secretly, Greatly:

Length: 2 Hours and 4 Minutes
Released: June 5th, 2013
Genre: Action, Tragedy, Drama, Spy
Main Cast: Kim Soo Hyun, Park Ki Woong, Lee Hyun Woo
Synopsis:
"A group of spies called the 5446 Corps were trained by North Korean elite special forces since their youth, ostensibly towards the lofty goal of unifying Korea. They are ambitiously dispatched to South Korea, where each disguises himself as a fool, an aspiring singer, and a high school student. Passing boring time without receiving any orders from the North, they gradually get used to life as ordinary neighbors in a small townuntil one day, their mundane lives are turned upside down when a "secret and great" mission is suddenly assigned to them."
My Opinion: It starts off kind of slow but once it picks up it doesn't let you down. It's funny at first but quickly the tragedy part kicks in.

Alice: Boy From Wonderland:

Length: 1 Hour and 55 Minutes
Released: December 10th, 2015
Genre: Horror, Romance, Drama, Melodrama, Supernatural
Main Cast: Hong Jong Hyun, Jung So Min, Jung Yeon Joo
Synopsis:
""Boy From Wonderland" depicts nightmare sufferer Hye-Joong whose dreams have become so severe that they actually happen in reality and finally endanger her life. To find the source of her terrors she travels to "Wonderland", a private resort she visited with her family 24 years prior. There is a mysterious and enchanting man, Hwan waiting for her. Within 15 days, she should find what she lost to stop her nightmares. If she can’t everybody will die."
My Opinion: One of the most confusing movies ever. I think mystery should be added to the genre list. Honestly if you watch this you'll be confused through the majority of the movie. Even by the end I didn't know what was going on. But I read someone's recap of it, after that it clicked and made sense. So you may need to watch this one twice to know what's going on.
Where Can You Watch?: Viki

Fabricated City:

Length: 2 Hours and 6 Minutes
Released: February 9th, 2017
Genre: Action, Thriller, Crime
Main Cast: Ji Chang Wook, Shim Eun Kyung

My Opinion: It was really good. I watched it with very rough subtitles so it was a little hard for me to get fully into it but even with those rough subs it was actually pretty good!
