A Bittersweet Life was a ground-breaking Korean film during the period when Korea media and entertainment was receiving huge attention.

I remember it being very stylised and artistic. Most scenes were framed with careful planning and the linear story captivating.

 

I am very glad this film receives a surprise exclusive treatment. Regardless whether you like the packaging, I feel it is a really great film to have in

a collection. Split between the two rather similar covers, but went for Type B in the end as I hope it will come with some great texture in the final product!

Just hope to introduce you guys to this great film =)

@ksosk I also went for Slip B, since it is different to the Steelbook Art. The Director Jee-woon Kim also made I Saw the Devil, The Age of Shadows, both excellent Korean Movies. He made The Last Stand with Arnold Schwarzenegger as well ? and is responsible for the Live Action adaptation of Jin-Roh The Wolf Brigade to be released this year. He is quite good and so is this movie. Some time since I saw it, but I love that we get a release for an older Korean Film in Premium Format. I hope someone will also make The Man from Nowhere and Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War as well.

Thanks for posting @ksosk. :wow: these are ultra thick, from the pictures I think I made the right choice, Full-Slip B looks very cool and it looks like A has no Embossing.

..... wait a minute. The finish to A looks very interesting ?, now I get why you changed to 1-Click @ksosk ?
