csNew York City Chewers, there’s a great opportunity coming your way. Park Chanwook, the brilliant director of Joint Security Area, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy and the upcoming Lady Vengeance, will be doing his first ever US in-store appearance this Thursday. He’ll be signing copies of Oldboy at Tower Records – the one on 4th Street – this Thursday from 6 to 7. Just do us all a favor and leave the bootlegs at home.

And look for more Park Chanwook soon, as I’ll be interviewing the man himself this Friday! By the way, if you’ve not been initiated into Park’s films, it’s not too late. Click here to order Oldboy from CHUD.com, and you can pre-order Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance on DVD right here.
