A Tale Of Two Sisters [DVD] [2004]

Memories Of Murder [DVD]
9.  Memories Of Murder [DVD] DVD ~ Kang-Ho Song

Champion [DVD]
10.  Champion [DVD] DVD ~ Yu Oh-Seong

Arahan [DVD]
12.  Arahan [DVD] DVD ~ Seung-Beom Ryu

The Quiet Family [DVD]
13.  The Quiet Family [DVD] DVD ~ Mun-Hee Na

Nowhere To Hide [DVD] [2001]

Natural City [DVD]
21.  Natural City [DVD] DVD ~ Yoo Jie-tae
The list author says:
  "One of those films where the only good bit is the last half hour. A sci-fi fantasy which dissapointed me greatly.  If only the rest of the film was as good as the last 30 mins. Would be a classic."

Lady Vengeance [DVD]
