    I would bet that the language is the English dub. I believe they are purposely misleading consumers by not listing the language on the DVD cover. If the BV version is 100 minutes, it is cut buy about 8 minutes. They also make no mention that this is the second movie in a 3 movie series.
    Here is a review of the import.

    That "misleading information" was my first thought as well. I'm willing to wait until I can get it confirmed, though. I'm currently investing in the Korean version said to be anamorphic. If it isn't I'll write back to this board about it. Some sites with, apparently, good reputation for getting the facts right in Korea does still have this listed as anamorphic. I'll know when it arrives. It would be an expensive HK DVD ( direct port )if it isn't anamorphic.

    I checked a few forums and one person does say that he has the Dimension DVD and it is English only.

    Cut and dubbed. What a surprise!

    You may want to check if the Korean DVD is made by the same company that released the recent BRIDE WITH WHITE HAIR DVD. The BWWH is non anamorphic and is almost identical to the TAI SENG version.
