At some point in the past we reviewed a Starmax SE (2 disc) DVD of A Good Lawyer's Wife. It had plenty of extras including 2 commentaries (both in Korean), a making of, a Sex in Korea featurettes, deleted scenes etc. But, as with so many Asian films on DVD, it has evaporated into the ether. This Taiwanese SD transfer exists (along with a similar Hong Kong DVD.)
Both are inferior to the Starmax - interlaced,, single-layered, not particularly sharp but anamorphic. It seems to be available and reasonably priced but is bare-bones and weak, although the image is watchable.
It offers an, error free, superfluous Dolby surround track and optional, English or Traditional Chinese, subtitles.
No extras at all. I think I liked the story in my initial viewing years ago and it has held up only moderately well. It has quite a bit of nudity and sex scenes. The film is mediocre but some may be interested in So-ri Moon whom you may recall from the highly regarded first two films Peppermint Candy and Oasis, plus a bit part in The Housemaid (2010.)The low price offers some value.
