Packaging / Design

Wow, this is really beautiful if you like the holographic shit. And I must say that I do. Because this case looks really really astonishing. All parts (I mean every fuck*** side you can possible think of) are glossy, thick and very very reflective. This thing will look good in a different way every time you take it out for a look.

Starting of we get your basic thick, really well made slipcase. It has a glossy feel and reflects light pretty much allover. It also has a foldout part wich doesn't really "do" anything but I'll let you figure that one out by checking the pictures.

Inside the slipcase we get two digipacks for 2 discs. Both of wich are 3-part foldouts. There's a lot of imagery here and some korean writing (not to much though). The only down side about the case is tha fact that the digipacks are a bit (just a bit) hard to get out of the slipcase (might be a bith to thick), could've been a slight thinner and they would slide a lot easier. But apart from that this might very well be one of the best digipack-packigings I've seen. Even the glue has been placed in a good spot.


Disc contents / Extras

First off, this set includes two versions of the film including a director's cut which is a lot darker and better (in my opinion) than the original cut. On the supplementary side, we get a number of featurettes as well as 9 deleted scenes including a couple of altarnete endings, all of wich come with optional director's commentary.

Also, I'd like to point out that this is not the Hong Kong release (by Deltamac) but the Korean, which was done by EnterOne. This digipack version is long OOP but you can still get the regular keepcase version with the same disc features.

Cutting to the chase I guess you can say that this set baciscally has everything you need from a standard special edition (and it seems to carry all the regular features of the other special editions, except for the storyboard galleries). But it's not superpacked so I'm not gonna rave about it. I'de give it a 6.5 but it does include two cuts so I'll rate it a 7 just for that.

There's an odd featurette listed as The Story of [Something in Korean] on the cover. From what I can gather, this featurette deals with pretty much the same topics as the more common Creative Process featurette found on most other special edition releases of this film. I can't confirm this 100% but I'm guessing that these featurettes are actually one and the same as the timespan is pretty close and it's the only featurette that would be missing in comparison to the other regions.

In the end I guess the only downside to this set is the menu system. It's very well designes but comes only in Korean, which makes it really troublesome to find all the featurettes as almost every menu comes with a variaty of submenus which just show more Korean symbols. But all in all, it's a really good couple of discs.
