Oldboy is much more famous than Joint Security Area. I’m not sure which I prefer to be honest. I’m going to have to watch the two again.
More reasons to anticipate the film. Clint Mansell and Philip Glass. The music is going to be excellent.
I love Oldboy! I saw it at the cinema and was immediately made a fan of Park Chan-wook. None of his films have disappointed me so far and I hope that this one is excellent.
I hear your fears about Asian directors and Hollywood. Hideo Nakata and John Woo never truly produced great works in the west but I think that Park Chan-wook and the other Korean directors working on projects will be different.
I was also surprised about Wentworth Miller’s involvement through the script. He must have done a brilliant job to get Park Chan-wook on the project!
