Darcy Paquet: Which Hong Sang-soo film is best to show to a newcomer? My gut feeling is HaHaHa. Will test this on my Korean cinema class in May.

  • lklinks: Fell asleep during HaHaHa. My choice would be Like you know it all.
  • darcypaquet: According to Twitter votes, the best Hong Sang-soo film to show a newcomer is Turning Gate/생활의 발견 (4 votes) or Woman on the Beach (4 votes). HaHaHa and Like You Know It All/잘 일지도 못하면서 got 3 votes each, Oh Soojung 2, and 1 each for the Day a Pig…, Kangwon Province and Oki.
