HOW MUCH FOR THAT MOVIE IN THE WINDOW?

Ever wonder how much it costs to buy a Korean movie?Ever wonder how much it costs to buy a Korean movie? Well now you can know by looking here.

SYMPATHY FOR LADY VENGEANCE set a record with its US$400,000 sale to the US (to Tartan, I believe).

Kim Ki-Duk's SPRING,SUMMER,ETC. was a bargain for Sony at only US$70,000 (it went on to earn a few million), whereas TUBE was bought for US$300,000 (sucker!), THE WAY HOME went for US$230,000 and OLDBOY cost US$200,000 (which seems awful low given its pedigree).
