Welcome to the Korean films guide!

As complex as its history, the Korean film industry has undergone many turning points from the late Choson period to current days. Darcy Paquet's Short History of Korean Film outlines major events and periods of Korean film. 

This guide provides print and electronic resources on Korean films in English and Korean (한글/Han'gul). Each tab is categorized by types of resources that may be useful in teaching and research. If you need further assistance with any of the materials on this guide, please contact International and Area Studies Reference at
