NEW MOVIES are usually (but not always) released on Thursday in Korea and changes to the schedule can be made at any time .

K4E Notes: Most people in Korea book their tickets online and so there are often no seats (or very few) left if you go directly to the theatre. Unfortunately, anyone who is not a Korean citizen may be unable to book tickets online because a Korean ID number is required by most sites.

SPECIAL NOTE:  
Newly opened Lotte Cinema World Tower (October 2014) and, in Gangnam, Joy N Cinema  
 

KOREAN MOVIES WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES*
You'll want to check that the screening you're going to see has English subtitles - Theatres usually only show the version with English subtitles at specific times - often at 'off-hours' (11AM, 11PM, Midnight or after, etc). The subtitled screenings are often of shorter duration than the Korean-only ones, with some pulled after only a few days. 
*If there is no listing, we've not received information on screenings with English subtitles. Do let us know if you are aware of any.

Anyone who has additional information on current or upcoming movies and where they are playing, please contact k4e at events@korea4expats.com
