AHHHHH I didn't know that The Handmaiden had even been released, but it's already a year old? I know how I'm spending my evening now.
Personally his stories involving cold, maniacal, vengeful women are my favourites, so I love Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, and especially Thirst (which rocks a delectably dark OST).
