As I mentioned before, they somehow mustered the will to adapt Oldboy from a Japanese manga. Also, who do you think should direct the film? I'd say the guy who did Train to Busan.
nothing to do with will. And again, I sadly don't know enough about Korean politics and very much would like to avoid speaking for them.
Personally, I would prefer Bong Joo Ho. The Host was a perfect blending of allegorical story, imaginative and personality-filled monster and human drama, the recipe for a good kaiju film
