Summary Many Korean films are bold in their criticism of politics and power, and touch upon historical and social issues. The strength of Korean cinema is that it combines art and popular appeal. In particular, the "Candlelight Revolution"(2015-2017)that led to the impeachment of former President Park Geun-hye, triggered the emergence of socially conscious films.
