Well I went to go see it, and it is good. Its very imaginitive and filmed buetifully. Not as scary as I thought, but its an interesting story. Here are some reviews listed on wiki.

“ you can add HANSEL AND GRETEL to the list of instant classics. This freaky fable manages to outdo even the likes of PAN’S LABYRINTH and THE ORPHANAGE in its presentation of a bold and beautiful, but still downright terrifying, adult nightmare. See it and prepare to be amazed. It is one of the year’s best.”
Calum Waddell, Fangoria

“...likely to become one of the year’s freshest, most memorable horror movies. Stylish, imaginative, and with a third act story twist, this is yet further proof that Korea currently stands as Asia’s premiere film factory. ... this delightfully grim horror is worth seeking out. Just follow the breadcrumb trail of positive reviews.
Rob Daniel, Sky Movies

“It’s bizarre, deliriously creative and joyously grotesque... Every small detail shines... visually arresting. It one of those films that use every inch of film stock in a creative way, convey the right vibes, and set the whole thing on fire with their power.”
X, Twitchfilm

“A TALE OF TWO SISTERS meets PAN’S LABYRINTH in this dark fairy tale that breaths some fresh air into the South Korean horror industry. HANSEL AND GRETEL is one of the most powerful movies I've seen in a long time. It’s pure genius.”
AnthroFred, Slasherpool

“Good acting aside, HANSEL AND GRETEL looks good to watch, boasting great set design, creating fantasy-like visuals that go hand in hand with the impressive cinematography.”
Andre Koh, The UrbanWire

“...effective and handsomely produced, HANSEL AND GRETEL puts the "grim" in Grimm while placing South Korean director Yim Phil-sung on the shortlist of PAN'S LABYRINTH emulators to trust.”
Rob Nelson, Variety

I watched it when it was a part of the film festival..the director was also there. I believe that it's one of the few Korean movies that will be playing across the country in some theatres. Cinematography is great and what I like about it is that it doesn't rely as much on special effects compared to North American movies. I would call it more of a semi-horror flick rather than a horror one. I enjoyed it though my friend who watched it with me didn't.
