1. Movie tickets are way too expensive nowadaysㅠㅠㅠㅠ

2. Wow for real, I only watched Count hereㅋㅋ Crazy.. Korean movies are f*cking boring nowadays. The tickets are expensive too so of course nobody would watch them

3. The tickets are expensive and the plots are too cliche... Also, if you wait a bit, it will be uploaded on OTT so why even watch it at the movies? Not like any of them was worth watching either

4. Emergency Declaration sigh.... what a waste of the actors

5. There's nothing to watch...

6. Uhm... they all look boring

7. Wow just looking at those posters, there's nothing I wanna watch... I wouldn't even pay 9,000 won to watch any of those

8. Aside from 'Decision to Leave' released last year, I've never been to a theater since Covidㅎㅎ... Afterwards, aside from Bong Joon Ho's movies, I don't think that any of those is worth going to the movies for

9. I didn't even know that any of the movies in this post was releasedㅋㅋㅋ

10. Seriously, I haven't watched any of these... I didn't even know that such movies existed... Everything is about OTT now
