One of the few movies made about the north korea / south korea conflict. Two North korean soldiers are found dead across the border between the two countries. A female swiss detective is put on the case to solve the murders. The plot slowsly unfolds, and the murders are alot simpler and more tragic than expected.

- Not a fan of the detective. Found her boring
- Good ending and thrilling plot
7.5/10

Nice list, I see there's a lot of us south korean cinema lovers!
I have to say I couldn't help buyt disagree with your first point though, I think "Lady Vengeance" is the absolute best of the trilogy, followed by "Mr Vengeance".
I suggest u to check out more og Kim Jee-Won's work, I see you want to watch "Tales of Two Sisters" and "Bittersweet Life"; have you seen "I Saw the Devil"? You could also find "3 Extremes" interesting (only one of the three episodes is korean though); I'd also suggest you to check out "Bedevilled", nice revenge movie.

If you like, come and check my "south korean list" and tell me what do you think!

Good List :)
I particularly enjoy Korean Thrillers and your list is on spot.
The Yellow Sea (2010), and New World (2013) are two great thrillers that maybe you'll also enjoy ~
