    I'm looking for feedback on this DVD. I'm positive it's anamorphic but is it censored in any way or is it cut (versus the uncut domestic release)? Thanks!

    Thanks Jonz, but it doesn't mention the Japanese version. Perhaps if the Korean isn't edited, then the Japanese version wouldn't be.

    I have both the Korean and Japanese versions and I remember issues with both. As I recall, the subtitles were burned in on the Japanese DVD? I recently moved to USA after 24 years in Korea and Japan and these DVDs are still in boxes that I will try to locate.

    Very little is censored these days on Japan DVDs except for frontal male nudity. Sometimes, however, they darken a questionable scene to obscure. Sometimes haze ball is used.
    These techniques are generally used rather than overt cuts.
    I have noted little or no censorship with Korean releases.

    When you get a chance Roger, please look. I didn't even consider the subtitles being burned in.
