Emotional dramas and movies from Asia


I’ve just read that the Turkish movie “7. Koğuştaki Mucize” was becoming a hit right now in other countries!

They did a remake of the Korean movie “Miracle in Cell No 7.” I didn’t know that other countries did remakes of Korean content (except Japan or China or well you know).

Has anyone watched “Miracle in Cell No 7”?

I hadn`t heard of it so far. Is it on Viki?

I saw the Korean movie Miracle in cell no 7 when it came a few years ago. I’m a sucker for emotional content and loved this movie! I haven’t seen the Turkish remake yet. There are plenty other Korean movies that other countries did remakes on. US have done this plenty of times. To name a few remakes you have: Il Mare (the lake house), Old boy and My sassy girl. Korean movies are great!


I remember the time when MTV was broadcasting a lot of Asian horror movies. And indeed some of them had American remakes, like The Ring (リング).

I watched The Ring (remake) at the cinema at the time, when I was living abroad, and I had to go home afterwards, late in the evening …
