Korean Movie Times in English?
« on: December 01, 2010, 11:14:06 AM »
Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows of a good site with movie times for theaters in English. I'm tired of walking down to the theater to figure out what's playing.

This one's not cutting it for me:

Thanks for the help

I usually check online with my local cinema, it's a CGV and they have pretty accurate times online. Once you figure out the movie name you're away. Where are you based?

I usually use this site.  You have to find your city and sometimes they don't update it, but it has come through often enough for me.  :)

I reside in Chilgok, just outside of Daegu. There's a CGV just a few blocks away... but I suppose I'll attempt using CGV's Korean site and just find the movie name haha... fail...

http://www.google.com/movies works in Korea. You can set your address or location as the default and it will give the theaters closest to your location. You can also sort by movie and get them arranged with posters. If it isn't obvious at that point what movie is what, download Google Chrome and set it to auto-translate Korean pages for you.

While looking for English bookstores in Uijeongbu, I found a theatre listing that provides:

  • The names of S.K Cinemas by location
    A list of all the movies in each theatre
    The names of English movies in English
    The language each movie is being screened in (i.e., original language, Korean, dubbed in Korean)
    The ability to book tickets in English on-line

All of this for the low price of helping me here  :P  Oops...here

I also use this site, and sometimes koreamovietimes.  Both are hit-or-miss, as you never know which one will be updated.

Is it really that hard?

Once you learn how to read Korean, the cgv site is pretty easy to navigate. The movie titles are all Konglish, and the theater locations are all proper nouns. There's no Korean skills needed (other than knowing how to read...which everyone who lives here should....)

I've used the CineInKorea site twice now, and they are just not reliable.

The first time I used them I waited about 2 hours for my ticket confirmation and then I had to send an email to request it. They sent an email apologizing for the delay and then sent the  ticket confirmation number. So I decided to give them another chance and use them again (hoping they would be a bit faster next time since 4DX tickets sell out fast). Currently I am waiting for the confirmation number for the the ticket. I ordered about 24 hours ago and still have not received the confirmation number. Now when I check the site to see available seats, all the "good seats" are gone. So when I finally (or if) I get the confirmation number, this will be the last time I use them. They just aren't reliable.

I'm going to try the CGV English Ticketing site in the future (and probably just use CineInKorea for checking times but not ordering).

CGV has an English ticketing link on their Korean site. Pretty easy.

I haven't been to the movies in Korea yet, but can you not purchase your ticket at the window, you know, "One for Mad Max" or "Mad Max hana juseyo" (or however you would say it in Korean. My Korean no good).

I've been on cineinkorea just to see what's playing, and for that purpose I think it's useful.

cineinkorea, is just Koreans using the Korean apps or websites to book the tickets for you, I used them a few times and got annoyed, all they are doing is screen snapping the app or site with the number. I use the Korean apps myself now, saves time and also allows me to get a seat I actually want and points or discount!
