Title Best
Shadowless Sword (Muyeong geom)R1

    There are two other options worthy of consideration here. There is the Region 1 version entitled The Legend of the Shadowless Sword and a Korean Region 3 version. The Korean release includes English subtitles for the feature but not for any of its copious extras. If you speak Korean this would be the version of choice as it is in the correct aspect ratio. If you don't however the choice comes down to the Region 1 release or our local one.

    The Region 1 version misses out on the following from the Region 4 version:

  • The Photo Shoot featurette (no big loss)
  • The multiple trailers (it only has one)

    The Region 4 version misses out on the following from the Region 1 version:

  • The original aspect ratio of 2.35:1
  • An English dub (in addition to the other tracks)
  • A music video

   Based on original aspect ratio alone I have to put the Region 1 version forward as the best for English speaking audiences.
