Check out the new poster for the restoration and re-release of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy

Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy has been remastered to celebrate the films 20th Anniversary. It will be returning to cinema on 16th August 2023.

Oh Dae-Su (Choi Min-sik), an obnoxious drunk abducted on a rainy night in 1988, wakes up in a strange, windowless hotel room. Kept under lock and key for an unknown reason, Oh Dae-Su’s invisible captors keep him fed and systematically sedated to avert suicide, providing only a colour television to keep him company. And after fifteen long years in captivity, perplexed Oh Dae-Su finds himself released. Now, his pitiless abductors encourage Oh Dae-Su to track down the ones behind the mysterious kidnapping and finally get his brutal, longed-for revenge on the unknown tormentor. However, who would hate Oh Dae-Su so much that he would deny him a quick and clean death?

The film stars Choi Min-sik, Yoo Ji-tae, and Kang Hye-jeong.

The screenplay is by Chun-hyeong Lim, Jo-yun Hwang, and Park Chan-wook. It was adapted from the manga by Garon Tsuchiya & Nobuaki Minegishi.
