Posted on Thursday, May 31st, 2018 by Hoai-Tran Bui
(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best, wackiest, and weirdest foreign-language movies and TV shows streaming right now.)
Yes, it’s that time again — the time when I yell at you to dive into the wealth of foreign movies and shows available to stream, and you nod your head and vaguely promise that you totally like reading subtitles. And because of the strange ways that weeks sometimes work, this is our third Pop Culture Imports for May!
This week has a wide variety of titles, from a mellow South Korean reality show, to a South African domestic drama, to an Israeli rom-com, and finally, a documentary about the Chinese restaurateur who introduced the U.S. to authentic Chinese cuisine.
So with that, let’s dive into the best foreign-language movies and shows streaming now.
