Since you ask for "best" in the question, perhaps the title should be: Best Movie With South Korea as a Backdrop?

Thanks, and good thinking with this suggestion by the way. :)
I'd say this one is different enough from the other live poll.

The other poll suggestion http://www.imdb.com/list/ls033642703/ started on the old thread boards on 19 Feb 2016 as a South Korean Top 250 poll suggestion and has morphed a couple times for different South Korean events., I never saw that other one go live, but I like mine better anyways. His is fixable though, the other poll just needs to be updated though with new films (2013-2018). http://www.imdb.com/poll/KVmJJgVaeDI/

P.S. could an admn update the title. PS: Best Movie With South Korea as a Backdrop?

'Good idea and nice list of films. Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring or The Manchurian Candidate would get my vote. This South Korea poll is making me really miss New York, lol -- it's  where I saw Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... 

May I suggest one small edit? ('a comma after 2018 in parentheses)

I think I had found one on this list of 365 titles with “Korea” as a keyword. https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword?k...
It is Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War (2004), IMDb rating of 8.1, with 34,243 votes.

Great movie, I liked it a lot when I saw it. It was on the list, but ended up getting cut, to make room for the American, British and Turkish titles.
