KOREAN MOVIES WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES*
(NB. You will want to confirm that the film screened in the particular theatre actually has English subtitles.) 

논픽션 다이어리 (NONFICTION DIARY) - Korean with English Subtitles
Documentary.  Directed by Yoon-suk Jung.   Non-Fiction Diary begins by exploring the case of the Jijon-pa clan in 1994, a group of countryside youths who were so frustrated and angry at Korea’s rapid embrace of neo-capitalism and the unbalanced affluence of citizens that they became serial killers. Their shocking crimes of kidnap, murder and cannibalism were compounded by their clear lack of remorse. The case itself initially appears relatively straightforward, yet director Jung instead chooses to focus on the national hysteria that gripped the nation. Simultaneously frightening, hilarious and absurd, the newsreels, talk shows and interviews that are compiled are incredibly revealing about 1990s Korean culture and the turbulent ideology of the era. Wisely steering clear of turning the documentary into a propaganda piece, the fascinating and provocative images and clips shown are genuine and convey the fear and paranoia towards young people at the time. 
The film also looks at disasters that occurred shortly after the Jijon-pa’s incarceration, including the collapse of the Seongsu Bridge, a catastrophe that claimed 32 lives and the 1995 Sampoong Department Store collapse in which 502 people died. While the three events may initially seem disparate,  there’s an irony that ties them all together. “I wanted to uncover the contradictions of capitalism, but despite their attempts the Jijon-pa never killed the rich,” the director explains. “But the customers were killed by the owner of Sampoong Department store, which is very ironic.”
Stars: Byung-chun Ko, Hyung-tae Kim, Sang-gu Park.

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: What were CINUS theaters are now Megabox following the 1 November merger. 
The CGV chain does offer a 'memberships for foreigners' that requires one's name as it appears on one's passport as well as one's alien registration number. Go to the website, scroll down to the bottom of the page (ignore the pop ups), and click on "Membership for foreigners"  

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
