List of the hottest, most glamorous and beautiful actresses from Korea. Since the late 1990s, South Korea has had a very robust and popular domestic film industry. (This was due, in some ways, to the South Korean government's "screen quota" policy, limiting the number of foreign films that can play in Korean movie theaters in a given year, and thus forcing Korean theaters to book more films made locally.) Naturally, this sudden interest in Korean cinema has given rise to a new class of internationally recognized, beautiful Korean actresses. Among the most popular are Kim Yoo-jin (who goes by the stage name "Eugene" in the West), a former Korean pop singer who has transitioned into a film and TV actress, and Shin Min-a, a former model who featured in the martial arts comedy "Volcano High," later re-made by MTV with a cast of hip-hop stars.

Many of the most successful films on the Korean peninsula have made their way to Western audiences, including the action films "Shiri" and "Joint Security Area," bringing international acclaim and attention to numerous Korean filmmakers for the first time in decades. Filmmakers such as Kim Ki Duk (a favorite at film festivals) and Park Chan-wook (whose popular "Vengeance" trilogy includes the breakthrough hit "Oldboy") in particular have benefited from increased attention from international audiences.
