One bit from this article makes me particularly sad :cry: :

This is the first time that the films have been shown outside Korea, and the only time they will be shown before they are returned to the Korean archives.


I do hope these see some kind of DVD release in this lifetime.

They've already been released as part of The Past Unearthed collection. I've been eyeing for quite awhile, but times being what they are... :cry:
