    Korean DVDs are NTSC.

    PAL discs can have a better image (higher resolution), but often that's not the case (e.g. if they're just "upgraded" from an NTSC original).

    In the early days of DVD, Warner digitized the films at 625 lines (so they could produce proper PAL discs) and 'degraded' the image for NTSC (to 480 lines).

    Why do you assume beforehand that the PAL version of PF could not be superior in this respect to a specific NTSC version?

    I have the Spectrum Korean DVD and it is most certainly NTSC and looks great.

    I also have the Korean version and it looks so much better than the US SE. I didn't know PF could look so good.

    Percebe,

    That last question may more readily be answered in the Regional DVD Area. I will now move this thread to that area.

    I believe it's long out of print. You might have to try Ebay.

    I have the Korean anamorphic disc and the USA CE and they are the exact same, edge-enhanced master. No difference.
