But what about watching these Korean movies with your family? After all, most families are more interested in making it a learning experience rather than pampering their loved ones. This means that they won’t be watching the movie to pass away the time but to actually instill good feelings in the family.

Now, are you wondering what the most popular theme in these movies is? Well, it’s happiness. Almost all the movies have some sort of happy ending, and that’s the main reason why people end up watching these films. There are some that are sad, and there are some that have a twist ending. But most of them do have a happy ending.

So what is this happy ending? Well, most of the movies contain violence. But then, they also have sad and funny lines. When the violence is very subtle, there is less emphasis on the violence.

The actors portraying the characters try to convey the feeling of happiness through their facial expressions and body language. They say goodbye to their loved ones; they get married and have a baby. They are happy when they have a promotion at work, and they feel sorry for their parents when their parents die. They even have some funny lines when they say, “you’re too old.”
