''Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance'' (2002, Korean: 복수는 나의 것; ''Vengeance Is Mine'') is the first installment of Creator/ParkChanWook's ''[[Film/{{Oldboy}} Vengeance]] [[Film/SympathyForLadyVengeance Trilogy]]'' and easily the most depressing and most violent of the three films. The plot is a standard {{tragedy}} that makes good use of {{irony}} as the film follows the [[TwoLinesNoWaiting two protagonists]], Ryu and Park Dong-jin.
