( A bunch of cops go undercover as operators of a fried chicken joint—only business starts booming and gets in the way of their OG goal to bust up a major drug ring. That is the totally surreal plotline of Extreme Job, the action-comedy flick that holds the title of second most-watched movie in South Korea. Around 14.5 million people flocked to the cinemas—in 2019 B.C. (Before COVID), don't worry—during its screening and now you can get in on the action when it streams on the Korean Cultural Center website from Friday, May 7, to Thursday, May 13. Best part? It's totally free.

Suddenly craving S.K.-style fried chicken? Same. This title is one of a total of seven movies available to stream as part of the 2021 Korean Film Festival "Full House: Fun For All." Organized by the Korean Cultural Center (KCC) and the Film Development Council of the Philippines, it will run on the KCC site from May 7 to May 27.
