I had very tough time finding English reviews of this movie, and that's unfortunate, because this was a very good Korean movie. Both leads, particularly Seong Hyeon-ah (Woman) was fantastic. Be warned that movie is very explicit with lots of nudity. The Taiwanese Blu-ray release is unfortunately, once again a DVD upconvert, albeit a very nice one. There was some jerkiness to the picture that seemed like improper conversion of interlaced source to 24 fps in the beginning that eventually went away (or I got used to). In addition, BitWel replaced the opening studio credits with their own and modified the end credits (accounting for the difference in run times - 95 min for this Blu-ray vs. 98 min for the Korean DVD). The end credits were replaced with strange abbreviated English/Korean cast credits. Reason why I say that it's strange is that one of the main character was not credited while some bit players such as taxi driver and waitress were credited. I think they randomly picked some names off the Korean credits and romanized them to just have something. Fortunately audio is solid. Despite the fact that this was not real highdef, I would still recommend it as I think this Blu-ray is much cheaper than the Korean DVD with English subtitles.
