Korean films I have seen:

A Moment to Remember

Staring: Jung Woo Sung, Son Ye Jin

One day she bumps into a poor carpenter, Chul-soo whose only goal in life is to become an architect and becomes attracted to him. They finally fall in love and are happily married. Now that she thinks she found the right one, she has to face an undeniable fact that she has disease which causes her to lose her memories."


Staring: Gianna Jun, Woo-sung Jung, Sung-jae Lee

"Hyeyeong (Jeon, Ji-hyun) who is preparing for her private drawing exhibition in the Amsterdam plaza, is able to live on only because of the memories of her first love. She presents this first love, which she has never seen but was strongly moved by, with a picture of a daisy. In response to this picture, a daisy pottery is delivered to her everyday. Meanwhile, she notices a man who comes to draw portraits everyday at the same hour, and she begins to develop strange feelings from him."

Full House

Staring: Song Hye Kyo (Jessie Han), Bi (Rain) (Justin Lee)

"Han Ji-eun lives alone in the house that she inherits from her parents. Her parents named the property 'Full House.' She has two close friends who end up selling the house behind her back to Lee Young-jae. Through a series of incidents, the two make a contract to marry, so that Ji-eun can stay in the house that her parents built. Although not in love with each other when they marry, a love between them develops slowly over time. The feelings of love are constantly interrupted by Gang Hye- won, Young-jae's love interest for quite some time and by Yu Min-hyeok, a man that Han ji -eun likes."

My Sassy Girl

Staring: Tae-hyun Cha, Gianna Jun

"My Sassy Girl tells the amusing love story between an inexperienced student (Cha Tae-Hyun) and a quirky college girl (Jeon Ji-Hyun). He finds her collapsed on a late night subway car, drunk to the point of throwing up on an unfortunate passenger. Left without a choice, he takes her to the nearest inn, waiting for her to come to her senses. This is how their dates begin, with him falling in love with the girl that's hurting because of a previous love that's ended. Loving her, however, doesn't come easy. She shoves him into a pond, wanting to see how deep the water is. When her feet hurt, she steals his comfortable tennis shoes, leaving him to wear her pointy heels."

My Tutor Friend

Staring: Ha-Neul Kim, Sang-Woo Kwon

"combines comedy, romance and action to track the changing relationship between a boy and girl. Second year university student Soo-wan, comes from a poor family which owns a fried chicken shop, and works as a private tutor to cover her expenses. One day she is assigned to tutor Ji-hoon, a high school boy from a rich family who cares more about his gangster business than his studies.
