There are many, though I haven't had luck finding any of these with English
subtitles.  Some of the more famous include:
    Imamura Shohei's Nyanchan
    Oguri Kohei's Kayako no tame ni (based on Ri Kaisei)
    Sai Yoichi's Tsuki wa docchi ni dete iru

If you are considering documentary, there are Nakata Toichi's  Osaka Story
and Matsukawa Tetsuaki's Anyong Kimch'i.

Also, you might want to take a look at the One Korea website, which has more
information on the topic, including a list of films at:

Hope this helps.
