I guess you know the dvd is out now with both versions on it. I can't really decide which one I like better.

reply

Tturtle, if you can't decide which one you like better, you're obviously deaf or stupid, please pick one.

reply

Hmm. Deaf or stupid? I can't decide...

I'm from Australia, and the version I bought was local. (Region 4).
It is distributed through a company called Eastern Eye Cinema.

This version is the proper South Korean version.

No American Rappers to be heard of at all.

so the dvd with both versions. does that mean that the korean version is the FULL version 120 min long?

reply




A good place to get the original without the rappers is www.Play-Asia.Com.Just check for the region code that it's compatiable with your dvds of your country.

I noticed that myself! The version I bought was a brand new DVD, norwegian region 2. It was actually labelled as a "rental" version, but I don't care since I paid the equal to 4$ for it, and it got 5.1 DTS original sound AND the 124 minutes originally intended.
What's up with an american version being almost half the length? Seriously?!

some english translation is wrong.

read the names of the students, especially "Icy Jade"

reply

Make sure you get the 120 minute Korean version and not the 100 minute Korean version.

The MTV version was like watching a whole different movie. It was funny and creative. I wouldn't mind seeing them cut up some more foreign movies. But the original will always be my favorite.

reply

Hello, I just purchased my version here in Australia it has both the American version and Korean version, the American version is 80 minutes and the korean version is 120 minutes.

Which version should I watch first? And what is the difference between the two versions? Also Im curious how could they cut 40 minutes of the film for the American version?

reply

I dont know what they cut out but in my opinion the Original is way better. The dubbing by rappers(of all people) really annoys me. Especially with Lil'Jon throwing in his signature "Yeeeeah!" callings when Jiang Ryang goes berserk.

For anyone interested in the movie, I highly recommend watching the original, which I liked a lot.

reply

I actually think the movie benefits from being cut. Normally i'd object to this type of thing, but the movie was too long and too boring. And yes, the hip hop dubbing sucks!

reply

The American MTV version made the movie seem goofy. American Hip-hop artists should not dub an Asian film...ever...

reply

Fortunately I watched the korean version and heard the real voice of the most handsome WSG student, Hak-Rim, already.

anyways, the USA version I really don't support.

reply

I have only seen the MTV version but I love it. At first I hated the idea of the rappers. But I found it funny.

reply

Avoid the MTV version at all costs. It looks like another cheap episode of that cheesey show called "Kung-Faux". The dialogues are changed, the plot was shamelessly altered. 40 min were cut and some scenes were edited in a very different way.
But the worst thing are the voice overs, they are pure CRAP!

Only the late Pat Morita saves the show. The rest of the cast sucks big time. Well at least Mya has a beautiful voice.

I suppose that everything was done with the consent of director Tae-gyun Kim. If so: Shame on him! for allowing MTV to destroy his movie. If it wasn't done with his consent (unlikely but I am not sure): Shame on MTV!

Korean version 7/10

MTV version 3/10
