The film was distributed in Japan by There's Enterprise Inc. and released as
'Bad Movie' (Baddo muubii). It opened on September 2, 2000 as Lateshow at
the Image Forum cinema in Shibuya. 

A Japanese Website about Korean Cinema
(http://www.seochon.net/korean_movie/movie/waruieiga.htm) lists the
following running times:
143 minutes = Tokyo Film Festival 
142 minutes = Director's Cut version included in the Japanese DVD release 
125 minutes = Korean Film Yearbook
120 minutes = Pusan Film Festival 
116 minutes = Japanese release and Japanese DVD version 

The official Website of the Japanese distributor There's Enterprise gives a
running time of 110 minutes. 

Any higher or lower bids?
