70 Classic Korean Films on Youtube!

Good news for fans of pre-millennial South Korean cinema! The Korean Film Archive has posted 70 classic movies to their YouTube channel, complete with English subtitles! This is the first time ever that some of these films have been seen with an English language option. Although we would've like to have seen more of the great oddball horror films that emerged from the ROK from the 60s through the 80s, there are a handful of pyschotronic delights to be had. Chief among these has to be 7 films by Korea's maestro of eccentricity Kim Ki-Young, including the mind-warping WOMAN AFTER A KILLER BUTTERFLY, a movie I've longed to see with English subtitles for years now. Check out the full list of films here.
