"old boy" was already remade in Bollywood 2005 I believe to Hindi. I wonder if the US audience would be up for the concept of Old Boy as a movie in the same style as protrayed in its Korean original. It was reasonably well received on some theaters in the UK as far I recall. (as an original)

I now have 2 x 250 GB Sata + 40 GB+200GB PATA + 4 x 16.8 GB SCSI with dorama. Dont worry, just living up to the Addicts part of DA ...

"Hi. I 'm interested in what you think about "X"." Can we shorten that to "I am interested in You, waddaya think?" Ok I am getting old, got no time to waste in trivial matters... :lol And if she touches you, you're certified. Another correction... If that happens I'd d...

I have a theory about the annoying scrawling of equations -- which I agree can't possibly be helpful in any real sense. I think he uses it as a sort of focusing device; they may or may not be related to his theories regarding the case, but he just uses the action of writing them out to center himse...
