Oldboy Steelbook will be available in 3 Editions:
The attached image of the Slipbox is what we call a Director's Choice.
The artwork for the slipbox was used previously for the Oldboy vinyl LP. It was co-ordinated by Nicolas Winding Refn, the director of Drive, and illustrated by Laurent Durieux. The director of Oldboy Park Chan-wook wanted one of our editions to feature this artwork so we reached out to Milan Records and illustrator Laurent Durieux. You'll be able to see more of the artwork since parts of the top and bottom were cropped out for the vinyl LP.
Please understand that we can't reveal other editions of the Steelbook at the moment as we're working on them right now. The pricing of the Steelbook will be USD $46.89.
