If you've kept up even casually international viewing habits over the past fifteen years, you've watched a Korean movie or two. Maybe you've enjoyed the unusual tonal mixture of Bong Joon-ho's political satire/monster extravaganza The Host , the elaborate grotesqueness of Park Chan-wook's revenge thriller Oldboy , or the slick Hollywood pastiche of Kang Je-gyu's North-versus-South heap of spy-versus-spy action Shiri . But look just beyond those high-profile international Korean blockbusters and you'll find the most vibrant, adventurous cinematic culture active today.

Upon discovering it, I personally got excited enough to move to a Korean neighborhood, study the Korean language, and dig deep for knowledge about the Korean filmmakers whose names even cinephiles rarely bring up outside Asia. You'll find it rather easier to immerse yourself, now that the Korean Film Archive has come to Youtube .   (NOTE: To activate English subtitles, make sure to hit the "CC" button on the lower right of the player.)

According to Google , which helped put the collection on YouTube, there are some other highlights you won't want to miss. They include  A Hometown in Heart , made in the early years of Korean Independence, and also  A Coachman , the first Korean film to win awards internationally. Many other titles like Aimless Bullet and The Barefooted Young are available in HD.
