This collection presents Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy and Lady Vengeance, the lauded trilogy of revenge films directed by internationally acclaimed Korean director Park Chan-wook (The Handmaiden). Sympathy for Mr Vengeance tells the harrowing tale of a young deaf-mute man, Ryu, who kidnaps a wealthy businessman's daughter in an attempt to extort money to pay for his sister's kidney transplant. A terrible accident sets the child's father on a fateful path of revenge. Oldboy tells the grisly story of Oh Dae-su, a normal man inexplicably imprisoned in a grim hotel room-like cell for 15 years, without knowing his captor or the reason for his incarceration. Eventually released, he searches for answers and retribution. Lady Vengeance tells of Lee Geum-ja, a model prisoner serving a sentence for a murder she did not commit, who plots a dastardly revenge against the real murderer when she gets out. Park Chan-wook's visually stunning masterworks of revenge are presented in this new collection with a massive array of extras, including the feature-length Oldboy making-of documentary Old Days.

One country. One family... divided by war. Seoul: 1950. Jin-seok (Won Bin) and his older brother Jin-tae (Jang Dong-kun) run through the streets of their hometown without a care in the world. They have clothes on their backs food on the table and a loving family. The brothers live with their mother their much younger siblings and Jin-tae's soon-to-be wife Young-shin (Lee Eun-joo). This tranquil existence is shattered when war breaks out. North Korea has invaded and the family is forced to abandon their home. While making the way to safer grounds soldiers arrive and take Jin-seok into custody. All men capable of carrying arms must report for duty; Jin-tae tries to free his brother but he too is captured and both siblings suddenly find themselves on an army train heading straight to the war's front line. With Southern forces failing to hold the Communist North's advance Jin-tae organises a tight-knit group of conscripts and orchestrates a daring isolated attack. Earning the respect of the men and his superiors with each increasingly suicidal mission Jin-tae is promised to be awarded the Medal Of Honour that will enable him to demand Jin-seok be sent home... Following his enormous breakout success with Shiri a film that allowed South Korean audiences to approach the subject of their northern neighbour Kang Je-gyu marshalled the biggest and most expensive project in Korean film history. By turns tragic hopfeul and yet still horrifying Brotherhood is a blistering treatment of the Korean War. Drawing comparisons to Saving Private Ryan due to its de-saturated colour palette step-printing editing during battle scenes and themes of duty-bound familial honour the film showcasing the penultimate performance of outstanding actress Lee Eun-joo who died shortly after production ended will resonate with viewers all over the world.
