* MarketBasedTitle: The title ''(Sympathy for) Lady Vengeance'' is clearly supposed to [[MisaimedFandom attract audiences]] that expect an action movie with a female lead character similar to Film/KillBill, even though this movie [[ComicallyMissingThePoint couldn't be much more different]]. The Korean title, ''Chinjeolhan Geumjassi'' translates to "The kind-hearted Mrs Geum-ja". That has a very different ring to it, doesn't it?
** As we're at it, there also exists [[http://www.joblo.com/timthumb.php?src=/posters/images/full/2006-sympathy_for_lady_vengeance-4.jpg&h=600&q=100 this]] ContemptibleCover from a Swedish release that is pretty unambiguous in what it wants to make the buyer believe.
