Love Actually Korean Boxed set

Anyone know what the extras are in the boxed set?

I watched the movie tonight and really enjoyed it.

Anyone?

Exactly same with keep case version in Disk contents. Only Difference is "not conventional 'so called' digipak box(It didn't make satisfy many korean fans)" and "Love Actually Heart shaped Pendant" , "Love Actually Postcard"

Do not get any R3 versions as they are all the shorter cut(the scenes with the porn stars are removed). Unless you really like the packaging, there is no reason to get the R3 Korean version. However, this R3 Korean Box set is near OOP now.

What is "The Storytellers"? I notice that regions 2 and 4 have it too.

The original cut of this film was about three and a half hours long, including some other "porn" scenes that were eventually removed. So does that make the "longer" version not worth seeing too?

I saw a similar cut while flying to Tokyo on the plane and they removed all scences of the couple who were doing the nude body double scences. I love the box set but would not buy that version.

You just said 'in a plane'. I don't think they can show anything about PG-13 in planes (at least, that's my experience). That would explain the cuts

I'd like to add something constructive to this thread but all I can say is that the Korean sites list the running time anywhere from 124 minutes to 149 minutes. If I go into a video store I'll check out the box, but now I can't help anyone.

The couple involved with the story line only interacts with the other characters at two points during the entire movie:

- A few seconds before the school play.
- A few seconds at the airport during the ending.

Deleting their subplot and those two instances wouldn't be too hard to do.

I realize that, I was just stating that it is possible to delete that whole story line since I had already seen a version without it, not that the version I saw was the one on the DVD.

The HK R3 version has the naked couple sub-plot plus the brief nudity of another actress removed. The running time is 129 mins vs the R1 135 mins. (Note that the R2 versions is 129 mins but this is due to PAL speedup.)

From IMDB
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0314331/alternateversions
it seems that the Korean version is same as HK version.

So, decide yourself.
