Yonhap News via Naver: King Kong and Godzilla are coming... what is the present state of Korean-style monster movies?

1. [+402, -11] Sector 7 ㅋㅋ I still remember one review for that movie "Make sure to watch Sector 7, I don't want to be the only one to waste my money"

2. [+203, -10] Korean-style monster films don't seem to have moved forward after 'The Host' and that movie is from a while back now.. or is it just because The Host was far ahead in terms of CG and story compared to the more recent ones...

3. [+227, -21] If you want to make a monster like Godzilla in our country, let's go with one where it gets fed propofol and viagra and becomes super big then destroys the country...

4. [+152, -17] This isn't even Hollywood.. do we really have to do well in every genre?  Can't compare to Hollywood's special effects.

5. [+84, -4] I remember watching Shim Hyung Rae's dinosaur jjujju and crying when jjujju's mom died

6. [+64, -3] Stop with the "Korean-style" this and that ㅜㅜ

7. [+46, -] A monster called 'Pres(ident)' was spotted in Korea and is currently filming a movie.  It's so exciting.  What other movie do you need?

8. [+40, -3] That damn "Korean style, Korean style"... do we have to put our lives on the line for that? Are we still going around with that thought of "Ours is the best~"

9. [+31, -3] "Present state".. they'll make one if we like it.. the reason they aren't making any is because they're not that good..
