Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
2002's Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance, the first film in Chan-wook Park's Vengeance trilogy, is a crime thriller that follows a botched plot to kidnap the daughter of a small business owner, the plan having been to use the ransom money to pay for a kidney transplant. When the child is accidentally killed, the situation flies out of control as the plot unfolds unpredictably. The film portrays the aspects of human psychology as the protagonists are pulled into the maelstrom, while also focusing on the nature of evil. The soundtrack was provided by UhUhBoo Project, an experimental unit from Hyun-jin Baek (singer) and Young-gyu Jang (producer/bass) who fuse local traditional music with avant-garde/contemporary rock. This is an astounding soundtrack that includes several experimental pieces which fully embody the unique style of UhUhBoo, as well as some folk songs and contemporary numbers. The soundtrack, which was released at the same time as the film, sold out almost immediately. This new colored vinyl pressing is the first reissue of the soundtrack since its original release.
