Last, but not least : Jagko (1980). The title means 'asymmetric nose' in Korean, which is the nickname of a protagonist.

DVD Compare review. Great extras like that documentary by Tony Rayns.

Sure hope the two first are still coming next month. Also wouldn’t say no to Mandala (Im Kwon-taek, 1981) which is probably the best Korean film ever made, this is so beautiful and it would look wonderful on Blu-ray.

Not a fan of the artwork for Jagko, but it might grow on me. The inner print also looks pretty compressed.

It turned out that the previous artwork was just a draft. Even the English title has been changed. Here's the new, final, official artwork of Ieodo.

Looks like Yeong-ja's Heydays has been dropped for 2018. Instead, we're getting Lee Man-hee's A Day Off (a director not to be confused with the cult leader Lee Man-hee). The release date is December 11th.
