The Korean Best Movie Package 1: Drama bundles five great Korean films together for your viewing pleasure. The package includes touching romances led by Korean Wave stars Choi Ji Woo, Kwon Sang Woo, and Kim Ha Neul and two thoughtful dramas, 3-iron and Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring, from one of Korea's most acclaimed directors, Kim Ki Duk. A great combo for both Korean movie fans and newcomers to the genre, these films are perfect for a quiet night in.

  • Almost Love (dir. Lee Han)
Kwon Sang Woo and Kim Ha Neul, the popular stars of 2003's hit film My Tutor Friend, reunite for another touching romantic comedy. Taekwondo student and stuntman Ji Hwan (Kwon Sang Woo) and drama student Dal Rae (Kim Ha Neul) have been best pals since childhood. Although the two of them bicker incessantly, their affection for each other runs deep. When they both begin dating other people, their friendship takes a turn for the worse. Will Ji Hwan and Dael Rae figure out their feelings before it's too late?

  • Now and Forever (dir. Kim Seong Jung)
Drama star Choi Ji Woo (Winter Sonata) and Jo Han Sun (Romance of Their Own) come together for this moving romance. Min Su (Jo Han Sun) is a typical playboy who thinks love is just a game - until he crosses paths with Hye Won (Choi Ji Woo). Min Su is instantly captivated by the bold and unique Hye Won, but she resists his advances. Suffering from a terminal illness, Hye Won couldn't possibly allow Min Su to fall in love with her, but sometimes fate works in strange ways.

  • Spring Breeze (dir. Jang Hang Joon)
Working as a self-proclaimed novelist, Sun Kook (Kim Seung Woo) doesn't use his heater in the winter and he doesn't own a cell phone. His only possession is his house. But one day, Hwa Jung (Kim Jung Eun) suddenly appears outside Sun Kook's house, claiming to own the house! Two lovers living together may make the picture-perfect romance, but what kind of story will begin when the innocent Hwa Jung moves in with the stingy Sun Kook?

  • Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring (dir. Kim Ki Duk)
Paralleling the changing of seasons with the cycle of life, this beautifully philosophical film traces the life of a Buddhist monk from childhood to an elderly age. As he grows, he experiences various desires and emotions in his childhood, adolescence, and adulthood that stray from the spiritual path, but eventually take him back to that small floating temple. Korea's most controversial director breaks from mold to present five seasons in the life of man.

  • 3-iron (dir. Kim Ki Duk)
Jae Hee plays a jobless bum who gets around by living in houses that have been left empty by their owners. He only takes what he needs and even helps out as a handyman when things need to be repaired. During one of his break-ins, he runs into a desperate wife (Lee Seung Yeon) whom he helps to escape from the clutches of her career-minded husband. When the husband discovers that his wife is missing, he tries to get back what he believes rightly belongs to him.
