    Following the U.S DVD debut on January 8, DRAGON WARS (a.k.a. D-WAR) finally reaches its native country... again. On February 1(*), a South Korean company called KD Media will release DRAGON WARS in two separate Region 3 DVD versions – the Limited Editon Special Pack, limited to 5,000 sets, and a Standard Edition. The difference between the two versions are not that remarkable. The former will have two storyboard books and five postcards with never-before-seen poster artworks in the package. The latter will have only a booklet. Both versions are 2-disc sets with disc 1 includes the feature in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen, original English Dolby Digital 5.1/2.0 and Korean Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtracks. Added are English and Korean subtitles. Supplements will be featured on disc 2. Among them are a twelve-part documentary on the making of the film, production design, visual effects and sound recording. The disc will also have promotional materials including trailers, the film’s premiere, a photo gallery, posters, staff interview with the director and a Freestyle Releasing interview. Also, as a promotional purpose, some selected copies of both the Limited Edition and Standard Edition will randomly include director Shim Hyung-rae`s autograph. The autographs will be hand-written by the director on a storyboard book of the former or booklet of the latter. The prices are 29,700 Korean won (approximately 31.56 USD) for the Limited Edition and 27,500 Korean won (29.22 USD) for the Standard Edition. * KD Media originally announced the release date as January 22, but it was later postponed.
