There are no Korean movies being released in DVD format this week…. BUT, I did see something interesting on the list of movies becoming available as rentals. There on the list was Song Il-gon’s 2006 one-cut full-length film The Magicians. The short version of this movie is available as part of the Jeonju Digital Project Box Set– but this is the theatrical release- the full 96 minute version and when I had seen it years ago, I thought it was far superior to the short version. Usually there is just a few weeks between a film appearing on the rental lists and becoming available for purchase. But looking ahead, I could not see The Magicians on the ‘for purchase’ list.. I am hopeful, however, that it will be added soon.
