1. On July 27th, 2010 the Korea Media Rating Board applied the most restrictive rating 19+, known in Korea as “제한상영가,” to “I Saw the Devil” for violent content. The movie was re-edited and submitted for the 2nd time to the Korea Media Rating Board. On August 4th, 2010, the Korea Media Rating Board again applied the most restrictive 19+ rating (제한상영가)[1]. Because of this, the advance press screening was delayed from August 5th to August 11th. The movie was then re-edited and submitted for the third time to the Korea Media Rating Board. On August 11th, 2010 the Korea Media Rating Board applied the less restrictive “teenager restricted (18+)” rating. The most restrictive 19+ rating (제한상영가) would have severely limited the release of “I Saw the Devil” in Korea because no theatres currently exist to show such films.
2. The final submission to the Korea Media Rating Board contained a total 1:30 seconds cut from the first submitted version.
3. The production company then edited a total of 7 more scenes in fear of inspiring copy cat crimes. Scenes including cannibalism was edited out in particular. The dinner scene with Choi Min-Sik and his serial killer friend originally had body parts on their dinner table, but was modified in the final release to have beef.
