    I already spent enough on that ridiculous 6-7 disc Korean box set that came in a handmade metalic case inside a giant purple giftwrapped box with a bow with like 3 different versions of the movie...

    But a lot of the extra stuff in the purple box set doesn't have subs, IIRC.

    Just checked DVDEmpire...

    They say Nov. 14 as well...absolutely LOVED this film, I heard Harry Knowles did a commentary for one of the Korean releases of this, or was it Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance? Can't remember!

    Here's hoping for the same treatment for Mr. Vengeance and the upcoming Lady Vengeance.

    Later

    Sounds like a very nice set, cant wait to get it.
    This is one of my favorite movies.
    I actually just bought the one disc about a month ago, hehe. This will be worth the double dip though.

    only problem with that is that mr vengeance and lady vengeance are actually ntsc to pal transfers so there is apparently at times servere motion blurring. I'd get the region 1 3 disc oldboy, the 1 disc region 1 mr vengeance and the 2 disc region 3 version of lady vengeance that has the fade to black and white version. just my take.
