The best thing about Netflix? Other than its wide selection of streaming Korean movies to watch, there are no commercials and it is smart enough to skip those boring introductions and title sequences. Once you've gone through Transformers, Forrest Gump, Django Unchained, and even Sleepless in Seattle, you need more. If you are looking for something more - something with some flair, some drama, some Cannes-winning, Korean films are the right thing for you!

From multiple movies that have been remade by Hollywood to the critically renowned Korean films, here are the best Korean movies to watch on Netflix! This list has been updated as of July 2015.
