Freaky an American Sassy Girl.. >__< That's just weird, I never watched it before but any movie in a different language getting remaked into english is weird. It's just like anime and dubs, and those badly dubbed chinese movies

This proves my point again. Hollywood is trying to take credit for movies made from somebody else.

After spending 2 years in S.Korea I'm going to have to safely say that I still prefer American movies. There were a few I saw while around Incheon and the like that weren't too bad. But for the most part, they'd put me in a coma which is hard to do.

Granted, I don't speak Korean so I'm sure that detracted from the experience. Not saying they're bad. Just saying they generally aren't my style.

That, and I'd hate to even get close to admitting this, but the Korean language irritates the heck out of me. Mainly because they have many words that sound similar to Japanese words. So I'm trying to translate Korean words into their Japanese phonetic counterparts and then extraploating an english definition on an almost subconscious level.

I spent two years in S.Korea (split into two 1 year segments) working hand in hand with them. Nice people, it just wore on me with the whole auto-translate thing that happens in my head.

Which is my problem, not theirs~


Korean is similar to Japan..? to me, nothin is similar to me,,,,i am japanese and live in korea rite now........to me, korean language was irritated for a lil while becuz they speak lik angry people(dat's how they talk), but i already got use to it ...
+ when i moved to korea from japan, i was really surprised dat they r really shot-tempered people,,then i realized that they are not angry, but that's how they speak..

bdw i lik Hollywood movies better....if i can understand korean, i would to lov to watch korean movies....i saw one-two korean movies thru movie channels in korea, i liked da settings and characters in the story, but since i dont understand em, im not interested to it

Nowhere did I say they were directly similar. I said there are some words in Korean that phonetically sound identical to Japanese words, but have completely different meanings.

Hanaseyo is one of those words. No clue how it's spelled in Korean. But it's their generic 'welcome' or 'hello' phrase. So it's a greeting. In Japanese, it is pretty much a forced requested from the individual to inform another individual to let go of them. (ie: Let go of my arm you jerk!)

With that in mind, a Korean would come up to me and say said phrase. My mind wouldn't automaticly think of what they're saying in Korean. It would go straight to Japanese. I would then extrapolate the english definition of what they say. That is where my irritation came into play. It wasn't so much at the language itself, but my inability to correctly translate what was being said without having a mental block prevent me from fully comprehending it.

Doesn't help that I was raised to hate the Korean's. Though I (in no way) feel that way in the slightest. Dated a few Korean girls while I was there. Almost gave my mother a heart attack when I said I was serious about one of them.

Regardless, that's my plight. Would like to return there though. Miss the days of getting pirated movies on DVD before they even started being shown in theaters. And getting hammered off Soju and finding the nearest Yaki cart for some cheap fun.

I prefer Korean movies... it's kinda sad that our movies aren't as good lately. I'm disapointed that the majority of our movies are all remakes of other cultures movies or past movies. Get some motivation and put in some effort America!

American can make only fANTASY FILMS...for example The Lord of Rings...They only know how make GOOD History Films or MARVEL comics story,for example Spiderman,Batman....
but if we are talking about action films its sure asia films its better than american because WE KNOW more about fightings and have more experience but our Fantasy or History its really not bad too but I prefer for American History film

I personally prefer Korean over Hollywood's films partially due to the fact that Hollywood has not come up with any new content that is entirely original and/or is not catering to the current pop culture of the youth.

On the other hand, the Korean film industry appears to be doing quite well these days pumping films out like the Vengeance trilogy by Park Chan-wook [quite an intense trilogy imo] and A Tale of Two Sisters by Kim Ji-woon... They still have that creativity that Hollywood lacks now...
