What I've been waiting so long for....

English subtitled Korean movies!!!! It was FINALLY announced (yea, they did say they would announce it in March, I'm just impatient) that the two cinemas that would show English subtitled movies are two Cinus cinemas. One in Myongdong and one in Gangnam. This is perfect for me! I frequent Myeongdong enough, and I've been going to Gangnam more often, since my friends seem to be migrating to that side of the world lately.

Feel free to check out the article in the JoongAng Daily: New Subtitle Service for Korean Movies

Click here to view Cinus's pathetic English service website. I say pathetic because they don't put the movie times available in English... Or summaries for that matter... And I can't even check the movie times anymore on their Korean site, not because I don't understand, but because for some reason my computer won't process the hangul (just on their site) and all I can read is gibberish.

For old blog posts about Korean movies and subtitles, check out the following links:
