Earlier this year, I saw ‘Lady Vengeance’ but even though I did like it, I thought it was slightly underwhelming but since I really loved ‘Oldboy’, I was really eager to complete Chan-wook Park’s revenge trilogy.

"Re-watch - May 31st OK...so I had several films still left that I needed to watch before they left, and the majority of them were films I hadn't seen before. However, my rating for this film was previously a 4/10, and given my love for Chan-wook Park I felt I should give it another chance rather than skip it because I had a feeling my rating was wrong. If I recall correctly, the first time I watched it I could barely stay awake & I found at least one aspect especially ludicrous, which led to th"

"Koska en tiedä mistään mitään ja olen vissiin muutenkin aika vittumainen tyyppi, niin päätin katsoa krapulassa "keskinkertaista" korealaista. Nimimerkki kurkkuharja soitti minulle tämän kokemuksen aikana. Minulle jäi vähän epäselväksi, että kantaako hän kaunaa jostain menneestä minulle?"
