Noirvember enticed me and ended up dominating my viewing choices so only three Korean viewings from me, I'm afraid.

1. 'Beterang' / 'Veteran' / 2015, Seung-wan Ryoo / 6.5/10 / South Korea
2. 'Ah-ga-ssi' / 'The Handmaiden' / 2016, Chan-wook Park / 7.5/10 / South Korea
3. 'Gongjak' / 'The Spy Gone North' / 2018, Jong-bin Yoon / 7/10 / South Korea

Thanks for hosting, Sol!
That's all, folks!

17. Ggobangdongne saramdeul [ People of the Slum/People of Ko-bang Neighborhood] (1982, Chang-ho Bae): 7.5
18. Byeoldeului gohyang [Heavenly Homecoming to Stars/The Stars Heavenly Home] (1974, Jang-ho Lee): 6.2 - A "fallen woman" story that gets more touching as it moves along. The more experimental film making techniques seemingly inspired by European arthouse of the time doesn't fit the movie.
19. Oasiseu [Oasis] (2002, Chang-dong Lee) (rewatch): 8.5 > 8.0
20. Ddongpari [Breathless] (2009, Ik-joon Yang): (rewatch): 8.5 > 8.0
21. Hanyo [The Housemaid] (1960, Ki-young Kim): 7.8 - Pure coincidentally this just happened to play at the cinema the last day of this challenge :)
22. Mimong [Sweet Dream] (1936, : Ju-nam Yang): 5.0 (Bonus Challenge 1 Pre-1950s Korea) - like others remarked before it's an interesting curiosity but a poor movie. The morals are completely outdated so it hasn't stand the test of time in that regard. Besides that it's just a very stiff acted and horribly edited movie; most of the scenes do not flow well on from each other (as sol said earlier).

That's it for me. Saw 22 Korean movies. Best surprises were Chan-wook Park's Thirst and Soo-yong Kim's Mist.
Thanks for hosting sol :thumbsup:

DEADLINE
Final results will be posted between 2:30pm and 3:00pm GMT on December 2 - at which point it will have been December everywhere in the world for more than a whole day. While you are welcome to post updates beyond this point, any such updates will not be included in the final results. Your choice whether you miss the deadline or not; besides, if it's December on your side of the world, shouldn't you be starting on one of next month's challenges?
I anticipate posting the final results (and if I have time, some stats) for this Challenge in approximately 24 hours time. OP is updated, so if there are any errors, please report them before this time tomorrow. :)

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!
