The best Korean movie I saw until now
1 March 2018 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

I saw already a lot of Asian movies and most of the times they're just not my cup of soup. But every now and then you get a little gem. Like this one. And I'm not surprised it's a Korean one, because almost all the good Asian movies I saw before were Korean. I couldn't tell you if I saw those actors before because I just can't memorize their names. But these actors have definitely qualities. Forgotten or Gi-eok-ui-Bam is a very captivating story that will keep your attention from the beginning till the end. It's a very well made mystery movie with a lot of twists and turns. Twists that you don't see coming at all. To me Forgotten is one of the best if not the best Korean movie I saw until now.
