Shouldn't a distinction be made between movies that were were shown in a censored form like 'Timeless, Bottomless Bad Movie" or from the same director "Lies," and films that never made it to the screen?
An important film that was taken from circulation entirely shortly after its release because of its bleak view of society is "Aimless Bullet" by Yoo Hyeon-Mok (1961), by some considered to be one of the best films in Korean movie history.

Matt’s list is spot on. I’ll add that the UK DVD of IM Sang-soo’s
<그때 그사람들> ‘The President’s Last Bang’ has the restored cuts
at beginning and end, and they really do make a difference.
(Lee man-hee’s ‘The Road to Sampo’ has a ‘happy end’ ending insisted on by
the producers to get past the 1970s censors. Almost interesting in its awfulness.
On KOFA DVD.)

Here are some titles that are available on DVD with English Subtitles:
"The Last Witness" http://www.koreafilm.org/feature/100_63.asp
"Night of the Strike" http://www.koreafilm.org/feature/50_26.asp
"Oh! Land of Dreams" http://www.koreafilm.org/feature/50_22.asp
"Guro Arirang" would be good but there is no English subtitled DVD...
Or a little more recently:
"Yellow Hair" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_Hair
"Timeless, Bottomless Bad Movie" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bad_Movie
If you need help tracking down copies of any of these films let me know,

Dear List Members,
I am seeking for some suggestions regarding Korean films. I am helping in the?organization?of Korean film nights for the upcoming semester, and an idea we had was to showcase Korean movies which were controversially banned by Korean authorities over the years. We have an idea or two, but we would like to gather more titles so we can choose two films best suited for the students. Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.
Thank you very much in advance and best regards.
Australian National University?
