Oldboy: 4K UHD (11/22/19)

German translation courtesy of blu-ray poster jimidini:

It doesn't say that they are working on Oldboy 4K Transfer in Korea (wouldn't make sense), but that (people in) Korea are working on it.
No idea where Google is getting the "We work on" from.

It also says that they are planning to release their German UHD (based on that transfer) this year.
For owners of the German Oldboy Mediabook (digibook) they will release an Upgrade-Edition, which will be a UHD featuring the same label design of their already existing DVD inside their digibook. Which means people will be able to replace their existing DVD with the new UHD and they will sell that one for a "significantly reduced" price. Could be an option for regular folks, no idea how big the difference is going to be and if they will require proof of ownership of the digibook.

The followup news is actually quite interesting as well.
It seems there will be a digibook release of "I'm a Cyborg, but that's okay".

Capelight has announced this will be released on November 22nd, 2019. If a moderator could please update the title...

According to German Amazon's description, there will be English subtitles. Also, this release is different from Arrow Studio's version. No idea if the Blu-ray in this one is using the same source as of Arrow's.

If I were a betting man, I'd guess that it is. Park Chan-wook supervised the new 4K master -- from the original camera negative, which is a surprise in this case -- that Arrow is using. I suspect that the licensor is doing the heavy lifting with the visual presentation, and that they'd offer the 4K master to any label ponying up for a license.
