Having both I thought there was a markup in the picture of the LE version of the film, and it is stated in http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/DVDCompare7/oldboy.htm Why after only 6 months they remastered this for the UE (of which there are only 2700 copies) is strange. Still the difference is staggering as you will see in the comparison pictures. Worth opening the box for folks !!!!!
