Friends, the Cinemarcheologist Division has ventured into the deep jungles of Best Korea to identify the oldest and most prestigious films from the peninsula
The Vow Made Before the Moon (1923) was the VERY FIRST, funded by the Japanese colonialists eager to imprint cultural images of Korean inferiority
The lead actress, five years later, would be reported (below) as having turned a geisha
Madame Freedom (1956) was a revolutionary film dealing in ADULTERY, and was so saucy that the solitary KISS SCENE had to be censored out of cinemas!!!
This thrilling and bold work would lead Korean culture on the path to Kimchi slaps today
The Horse-Lover Woman (1982) marked a decade in which the Koreans made nothing but pornography, surely contributing to the eventual overthrow of the military dictatorship
It was also a technological tour de force, requiring the lead actress to ride a horse naked, but most importantly, without a stirrup
