    Should I avoid it (I'm assuming it's a bootleg)? I'm thinking of getting it.

    Why are you assuming it's a bootleg?

    There is a legitimate release of Oldboy, it's 2-disc, Region 3. Easily available at many of the import DVD sellers

    looks like a bootleg. I have the legit region 3, the letters are gold and has nothing on the cover but his face and 'oldboy', no 'dvd' etc.

    Check out the "fullhousedvd" store on Ebay. I've bought quite a few DVD's from this guy because he has good prices, inexpensive shipping, and has never sent me a boot. He's got a couple copies of Oldboy listed. They're both legit region 3, 2-disc sets.

    I've really wanted to grab this, but my region free player has been acting up. I guess I'll wait for the reviews on the Tartan region 1 release (March 25).

    go for the "oldboy : final edition" from koreandvds.com dvdfromkorea.com or cd-wow.com (£12.99 with free worldwide postage)... thats the same remaster as in the "ultimate edition" tin out recently and improves on the original disc (which is OOP)... see a comparison at dvdbeaver.com too for pics which show the improvements...
