Well I like "Spring, summer, fall, winter and spring" and "Oldboy".  I say Korean movies are only second to american and first in being original.  I need to watch Mr. Vengeance.

Isn't it Lady Vengeance? That movie was STRANGE! I didn't know what to think of it.. I liked oldboy, great plot, kinda sick though.

oh and watch scandal - korean version remake of Les Liasions Dangerueses. great great great setting.

that book has been made into movies as:

Dangerous Liaisons, 1988
Valmont, 1989
Cruel Intentions, 1999

in the states.

Their are TWO movies.  Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and the newer Sympathy for Lady Vengeance

So there was this Korean girl in college that I was cool with.  We used to hang out all the time…she would come to my dorm and watch movies and we would just sit there and talk.  We both knew that we liked each other but somehow it never went there.  In some ways I’m glad nothing happened, it kinda preserved the innocent sweetness of the relationship.  Anyhow, that was then.  If I were to run across her now on the other hand………….lol

Here is an interesting story related to this top:

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/football/nfl/steelers/2006-02-09-ward-korea-buzz_x.htm

It not only Koreans that have a severe problem with discrimination against blacks, Ive heard stories of blacks being  call devilspawn in Japan and being physically attacked. 

--Interesting sidenote.  The reason that Japan is so obssesed with robots is that unlike American who get Mexicans and other immigrants to do minial labor, Japan is so zenophobic that they will not allow Phillipinos to immigrate eventhough they need the labor and Japanese have a declining birth rate.  Therefore they choose to develop service robots so that they will never have to resort to immigrant labor.

I wouldnt doubt it.  I plan on visiting japan also, I love sushi.  But Im just mentioning the fact that discrimination against blacks is not limited to Korea. 

While I do not doubt this, a couple of my friends have had pleasant experiences visiting Japan. They said they were treated like b-list celebrities, and in some cases like unicorns. Sure, they were only welcome superficially, but they never encountered any violence or hostility. If nothing else, I can live with that--as a tourist.

More reasons for me to go then.... ;D ;D ;D ;D 8)...

Im not making a judgement on the whole society but just saying what I've heard about from a friend.  Not that this is typical behavior.  Most people are civilize.

Black Americans are welcomed in Japan as something like "b-list celebrities" as was said before. I'm not exactly sure why, my best guess would be that they see us on TV rapping and playing sports, and through that exposure have developed some sort of superficial admiration. However, Blacks from Africa who immigrated to Japan are looked upon negatively, and given the same racist treatment that our people are sure to find almost anywhere we go.
