Taste of Cinema reveals its favourite horrors out of Asia, KOBIZ offers online screenings from the Busan International Film Festival, find out what films Koreans supported over Chuseok, and catch all the winners from Korea's premier film festival, BIFF.  

"The 10 Best Asian Horror Movies of The 21st Century"

In recent years, K-horror has not been as prominent as it once was, but the country has produced some of the best horror flicks in the region. In this post, Taste of Cinema reveals their top ten Asian horror films, and, of course, there are a few Korean stunners that made their list. Can you guess which ones?


"Opens BIFF 2015 KoBiz Online Screening on October 12th"

I've always been very impressed with the effort that Korea's film industry puts in to promote its own cinema culture. You can watch an incredible amount of classic Korean films for free on YouTube, for example, and KOBIZ also has an online screening service on its site that is worth checking out if you weren't able to attend BIFF 2015. These festival screenings are available now for three months online, so be sure to bookmark it and enjoy!


"Nobody Can Be Relaxed"

The Chuseok holiday is one of Korea's biggest national holidays, and what better way to enjoy the time off than to catch a film out with friends and family! But what features did Korean's pay to see this year? Were family-friendly flicks once again the big money-makers? KOBIZ has a neat infographic that reveals which features were the most popular over the harvest celebrations.


"Busan International Film Festival – Winners 2015"

The Busan International Film Festival came to a close last week. This year's festival, the 20th edition, featured over 302 films from 75 countries, including 94 world premieres. But if you weren't able to attend or follow the festival, take a look here at the films that made waves and impressed critics and cinephiles. Catch them when you can!
