Kim Dong-won box set released

It's nice to see that there's a box set of Kim Dong-won's documentary films out now, which features 14 of his documentaries, including Sanggye-dong Olympics (more here) and Repatriation. It's nice to see Repatriation given a DVD release at last. Seoul Selection held a talk with director Kim back in 2004, and at the time I asked him when a DVD of the film (then Korea's best-selling documentary) would be released. He hoped it would be out by early 2005. Better late than never. Also, this has to be one of the most comprehensive box sets I've seen yet. Fourteen films! I just hope it remains in print for longer than some of the other box sets that have been released...
