    Warning: This film is not for the faint of heart.

Again, Gong Yoo proves he can skillfully handle dramatic roles in this heavy film. While the film's content will shock you, it is a powerful story that will stay with you even after the credits roll.

    You've probably heard of this blockbuster hit after it made waves in the film industry. Even if you're not a fan of zombie movies or the horror genre, you'll love this film. Gong Yoo's performance as an estranged father trying to make it out of the zombie apocalypse with his daughter is surprisingly moving for a horror movie. While there's enough suspense and gore to make you jump out of your seats, Gong Yoo's touching performance gives the film a lot of heart.

    Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (AKA Goblin) is not your run-of-the-mill romance drama. You're guaranteed to cry your eyes out more than once while watching Shin and Eun-tak's beautiful yet tragic journey together. Gong Yoo proves that he's the ultimate K-drama heartthrob with this swoon-worthy performance as the lonely and immortal goblin, Shin. Not only does he have amazing chemistry with the female lead, Kim Go‑eun, but his bromance with the Grim Reaper (Lee Dong-wook) will have you laughing your head off.

    Gong Yoo in 1920s period clothing? How can you resist? It's not often we get to see Gong Yoo in a period drama. Set during the Japanese occupation of Korea, Gong Yoo plays a Korean resistance fighter in this nail-biting espionage thriller. He holds his own alongside other major Korean powerhouses like Song Kang-ho (Parasite) and Lee Byung-hun (Mr. Sunshine). Plus, the film sheds light on an important part of Korean history. You'll learn something new while also being entertained.
