My all-time favorite Korean movie is Dongjaeng, which is basically the Korean word for miso paste. The English title is The Recipe, which doesn't carry the same sentiment (much like Ajushi). It's stunningly beautiful and peaceful, and kind of functions as a basic primer on Korean food, as well. I'd add it to the "must watch" list of Korean movies.

There seem to be quite a few food themed Korean movies and dramas.  One that I like (and is available on Viki) is Kimchi Family https://www.viki.com/tv/28081c-kimchi-family?locale=en  Its Korean name literally means "fermentation family" which just sounds weird in English.

(I looked up The Recipe and noticed it stars Lee Dong Wook.  That is another reason I'd like to see it.)
