Director Bong Joon-ho's "The Host" has been included among the 10 best foreign movies in 2006 selected by Japan's leading film magazine, Kinema Junbo.

The Japanese press reported Wednesday that "The Host" ranked third in the foreign film category of the 80th Kinema Junbo Best 10 2006.

On the top of the list was director Clint Eastwood's "The Flags of Our Fathers", followed by "Letters from Iwo Jima", also by the same director. Ang Lee's "Brokeback Mountain" came in fourth and Bennett Miller's "Capote" fifth.

It is a noticeable achievement that the Korean film beat Hollywood blockbusters.

The best Japanese movie was "Hula Girl" directed by Korean-Japanese director Lee Sang-il. The award ceremony will be held at the Ashahi Hall in Tokyo on Feb. 10.
