In a direct comparison a few slight differences between both versions stand out. While the international version shows how the (apparently) departed priest gets a cross ‘painted’ on his cold hand, a crucifix with a mummified Jesus can be seen in the Korean version. Song Kang-ho’s “lunch” has been replaced with a slighty less bloody variant. The Korean version also replaces the short sex scene between Song Kang-ho and Kim Ok-bin with some non-objectionable cuddling and just the beginning of a kiss. Guess these scenes had to be changed for the same reasons that the original poster artwork had to be castrated for.
