Here's an article about the channel that talks about some of the movies.

And here's Bong Joon-ho's entire feature length 2003 movie Memories of Murder, available on Youtube.

Memories of Murder is being reissued in U.S. theaters and on Blu-ray later this year following a recent 4K restoration, so if it’s an option I’d urge folks to please support that release rather than streaming a pirated version.

(Is there any guidance available (in English) as far as appropriateness for kids, a rating system, etc.?)

Yes! This is awesome! I was just talking about the gap in my knowledge of Korean cinema before bed last night, so this is very timely. Looking forward to seeing many of these!
