South Korea Cinema - K-Crush

At the moment, I'm on a South Korean kick. Here I'm ranking films watched in order of personal enjoyment, as the marathon takes me.
Purpose: My formative film viewing years left me with an unbridled passion for all things Hong Kong, before becoming a Japanophile in my teens. Strong allegiances to both cinemas meant that if I was going to watch a subtitled Asian film - that time would be spent with them. As a result, other countries from that part of the world fell by the wayside - so while I was always up on the latest Bong Joon-ho or Park Chan-wook masterpiece, the rest of the Korean film industry is a blind spot of mine.
