More Info:

For the first time on vinyl, the soundtrack of director Park Chan-Wook’s 2009 film Thirst has been reissued. Though it wears the facade of a bizarre horror drama, the film itself delves into the foundations of religion, the human act of self-reckoning, and the dilemma between survival and morality faced by a man of the cloth when driven to the brink. The soundtrack was directed by Cho Young-Wuk, a long-time artistic partner of Park Chan-Wook starting from JSA and Oldboy to Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. The tracks feature original score composed based on Bach’s cantatas, as well as old Korean gayo from the 1930 -- 50s. Cho’s team continue to uphold their meticulous musicianship in the compositions and arrangements, while the (seemingly out-of-place) gayo pieces come together with the main score to imbue the film with its bizarre atmosphere.
