Do they celebrate Christmas in Korea? I'm not sure but Hansel & Gretel is a fantastic blend of suspense, classical tale and Far East blending ability. Far from being J-horror this is a dark fairy tale with moments of outstanding brilliance. Visually the enchanted world looks tremendous and the trio of children perform admirably. Don't put yourself off from viewing this gem.
