Christmas 2021 has arrived! Amid the ongoing pandemic, instead of going outside, gathering with loved ones and watching movies is a perfectly meaningful option. Scroll down this article to check out 6 Korean movies to enjoy during the Christmas season that we want to introduce to you all. Watch these and enjoy wonderful moments with your friends and families on Christmas Eve!
1. Christmas in August
Released in 1998, Christmas In August tells the story of Jung Won, the owner of a photography shop in the suburbs who has a terminal illness. Despite such unfortunate situations, Jung Won is still optimistic and tries to live the rest of his life comfortably.
The last days of his peaceful life suddenly ripples when he meets Darim (Shim Eun Ha), an innocent and lovely traffic police officer. The two gradually develop feelings for each other and exchange precious feelings in the midst of a chaotic life.
Although the movie has a sad ending, it is definitely suitable to watch on Christmas.
2. Swing Kids
Swing Kids, directed by Kang Hyeong Cheol, is set in the 1950s during the Korean War and revolves around a tap dance crew who are prisoners of Korea and China.
This dance group consists of 5 members played by D.O. (EXO), Jared Grimes, Park Hye Soo, Oh Jung Se and Kim Min Ho. All 5 members have their own stories when it comes to dancing, but they all have the same goal of winning a prize in a dance competition at the detention center.
Swing Kids was released in the Christmas season of 2018, although it did not create a big impact, the meaningful and inspiring storyline received plenty of praise.
3. On Your Wedding Day
On Your Wedding Day is a must-watch movie every Christmas season. On Your Wedding Day has many similarities with the classic Taiwanese melodrama You Are Apple Of My Eyes. On Your Wedding Day is about the first love of Seung Hee (Park Bo Young) and Woo Yeon (Kim Young Kwang) during their youth days.
Seung Hee, a playful student, falls in love at first sight with transfer student Seung Hee. Their feelings then go beyond friendship and the two become lovers. On Your Wedding Day is divided into many stages, the main couple break up and reunite but at a wrong time.
The bittersweet emotions of On Your Wedding Day makes it an emotional movie to watch during the Christmas season. Because it will remind you of a beautiful youth with pure and sweet feelings that you used to experience.
4. Inseparable Bros
The next movie I want to introduce to you this Christmas season is Inseparable Bros, which premiered in 2019. Inseparable Bros is inspired by the true story of two brothers who have neither the same father nor the same mother but have relied on each other for more than 20 years.
In it, Kang Se Ha (Shin Ha Kyun) cannot walk on his feet but is always a solid support for his brother, Dong Gu (Lee Kwang Soo), a tall, big but stupid boy.
Life seemed peaceful until one day they encountered one event after another. The climax is when the two brothers have to separate because Dong Gu’s biological mother returns and wants to bring Dong Gu back home. By the end of the movie, they have overcome all adversity and get back together like before.
The perfect movie for this year’s Christmas season is Exit, a movie that is both funny and dramatic. The film tells the process of Yoona and Jo Jung Suk facing the threat of white toxic gas. In addition to having to save themselves, Yoona and Jo Jung Suk also used their skills to save people trapped in the building.
When watching this movie, the audience will have moments of tears because of family affection, the sacrifice of health, even the life of the main couple to save those around and burst with happiness when everyone is safe.
The last but equally interesting name I want to introduce in this list is a touching comedy called Pawn.
The drama is set in Incheon in the 1993s, when Park Du Seok (Sung Dong Il) and his colleagues have to temporarily babysit a little girl until her mother has enough money to pay off the debt. However, because of her mother’s difficulties, two debt collectors had to take care of her longer than expected. Originally, they were complete strangers, but through many events they became close and lived together like a family.
Above are the movies with very interesting and meaningful content that I always watch during the Christmas season. Hope these movies will bring you a peaceful and warm Christmas.
