Soundtrack For Park Chan-Wook's 'Oldboy' Gets Vinyl Reissue, Executive Produced By Nicolas Winding Refn

There will be few times when the names Park Chan-wook and Nicolas Winding Refn will appear together, and we'd wager that unless they ever co-direct a movie, few announcements will be as exciting as this. The soundtrack to Park's 2003 classic "Oldboy" is getting freshly minted on vinyl, and Refn is stepping in, adding his name as an executive producer on the release. If you only know Spike Lee's remake from last year, now's the best time to track down the superior original. Not only is it a much better film, but it boasts the work of composer Cho Young-wok, who has been a longtime collaborator with Park, providing scores for "Joint Security Area," "Thirst" and "I'm A Cyborg, And That's Ok," along with producing and working in the Music Department of "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance." This re-release provides a great opportunity revisit his unique work for "Oldboy" if you don't already know it.
