I've got a gorgeous DVD edition from South Korea and that's enough for me, I adore the director's work usually but this was a slight step down for me and not something I would want to buy again.

Give me steelbook blu ray editions of A Tale of Two Sisters; A Bittersweet Life; and The Good The Bad The Weird then I will be happy. :thumbsup:

If it's the same release as previous, the UK got the less graphic version although there are scenes in that one that aren't in the International cut.

So ideally having both cuts would be best, likely to be the same UK disc though i'd imagine.

Out of interest, which cut do you prefer? Or is generally regarded the better cut?

The UK got the less graphic version? I don't think so. The Korean version is less graphic. I can't go into specifics because of those who haven't seen the film yet.

The UK version is the Korean version with the violence toned down, albeit with some extra scenes and slightly longer. The International version is on the US blu-ray. I prefer the International although they're both good. I just think the extra brutality and a couple of other elements that are in there are quite integral to the the story. It was also the US theatrical version when I was living there so it was the first version I saw so it does seem a bit light to me as the violence in the Korean version feels cut.

Ordered. Very good film, if you like Old Boy and Memories of Murder, it's kind of a mix of those two. How come this has come before Scream and Copland?

OP updated with slightly newer front artwork (Faces better positioned inwards, colour bolder, Title positioned slightly lower and white instead of sliver) and the back artwork.

Preview pics below showing spine and inside artwork. :)

Some may want to hold off....

About "I SAW THE DEVIL" steelbook project. | PLAIN ARCHIVE

Plain Archive is excited to announce the release of I Saw The Devil Steelbook. We've been asked by Blue Kino, another Korean Blu-ray company to design the Steelbook edition which will be PLAIN ARCHIVE's exclusive. It will be released this Summer.

We were hoping to release the world's first Steelbook edition of I Saw The Devil, but Zavvi announced its own before we could. The news made us reconsider the project, but with director Kim Jee-woon's support, we couldn't drop it.

I Saw The Devil Steelbook will be released under the approval of director Kim, and we are working on the artwork as we speak.

Well, it may have both cuts or the International Cut and it may look substantially different... If it had both cuts I'd be tempted to sell my Ltd Ed Amaray.
