Thanks to Aaron for sending in this bit of plot info for Chan Wook Park's Sympathy For Lady Vengeance:

"Also found this info about Sympathy for Lady Vengance("Chinjeolhan Geumja-ssi"). The long anticipated third film of director Park Chan-wook's 'Revenge Trilogy' which includes Sympathy For Mr Vengeance and Oldboy. Up until now, the plot of the story has been kept closely guarded, but what is known is that it is about a thirty year old woman (who may have spent the last 13 years in prison) out to seek revenge on the man who betrayed her. The movie joins the considerable talent of Choi Min-shik (Oldboy, Springtime, in a minor but important role) and Lee Young-ae (One Fine Spring Day, JSA). This Moho Film production may be released in June."

Keep posting news on this film, I love it every time I see that gorgeous photo.


jasonJanuary 16, 2005 7:02 PM's oldgirl? what gives? i think chan wook should've done something different instead of another sympathy. she's in prison for x number of years and gets released and seeks revenge...hmmm sounds like oldboy but it's a woman and he called it sympathy for 'lady' vengeance? seriously...what's going on here. he's starting to sound like a one trick pony.

I dont think it will be an "oldgirl".

CWP is far too creative to re-package his previous work...especially when its the final installment of a "concept" trilogy, in which the previous films have received critial acclaim. There is too much at stake.

I'm eagerly awaiting.

i read that the korean title (Chinjulhan Geomjasshi) translates as "the kind ms. geomja", so he's definitely not just recycling the 'sympathy for mr. vengeance' title. people have taken on the SFLV title ever since the he jokingly mentioned it in a press conference last year.

this film cannot arrive fast enough, hopefully it'll be a fitting finale to a truly amazing trilogy.

ah...thanks for clearing that up. i actually prefer that title "the kind ms. geomja". has a better feeling for me than sflv.

yeah, the korean title translates like "the kind ms. geomja" or "the friendly ms. geomja". they named the title like this to be ironical since she's not going to be nice in this movie. the movie posters are already out and it gives me a chill.

Here's what I heard of the story behind the title--originally the title Park had in mind was 'Manyeo Yi Geumja' ('Yi Geumja the witch' or 'Yi Geumja the evil woman'). Then he got inspired by an alternate title Choi Min-shik had suggested for 'Failan' which was 'Chinjeolhan Gangjae-ssi' ('the kind Mr. Gangjae').
