Korean Spy Drama

Perhaps the biggest film in Korean cinema. When Shiri was released in 1999, it outsold both the Titantic and The Matrix (in Korea). For those interested in Korean cinema, this is a good starter film: the action and the romance here are typical of the big budget Korean flicks.

But so is the melodrama. Like Korea's soap operas, which are popular across Asia, the romances tend to be overly sentimental and situational. Don't expect depth. Of course, this is also true of Hollywood blockbusters like Braveheart or Robin Hood.

The acting, however, is top-shelf. Pay close attention to Choi Min-Sik, who plays the commander of the North Korean spies. Kim Yoon-Jin (who pays Sun on the American TV show Lost) also made her film debut in Shiri as the girlfriend of one of the secret agent...
