South Korean No Wave

Ignore the title, I just didn't know what to call this list. The aim here is to record S. Korean micro to low budget digital films I watch that feature some if not all of the following:

1. Slice of life stories.

2. A stripped down aesthetic, both visually and aurally. Tripod shots, single mic set-ups, minimum if not altogether absent scoring, etc.

3. A little bit of experimentation with narrative structure, often in meta-fictional in nature.

4. Drinking culture.

Though clearly the largest force here, I am opting to leave Hong Sang-soo off this list as I've already created one specific to him: letterboxd.com/jaschrecker/list/beginners-guide-to-hong-sang-soo/
