Bollywood holds the records for remaking South Korean movies for years, and the trend has only grown. Most recently, Salman Khan’s movie “Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai” witnesses at the very beginning that the film is based on the Korean action-thriller The Outlaws. Although there is a significant plot variation between the two and Radhe cannot be called a complete remake.
Have a look at the other recent examples of Korean inspiration in Bollywood films.
Remembered the mystery thriller film written and directed by Ribhu Dasgupta? It is a remake of the 2013 South Korean film Montage.

Vidya Balan is also seen playing the police inspector who helps him with the case.
