There are, at time of writing, two versions for sale on Amazon; I bought the cheaper, which has Korean and English text on the box.
Intermittently quite grainy, which can distract from the remarkable cinematography. The English subtitles are occasionally different from the spoken word. Orson Welles is too pale, too old and too porky for the part - but he is still magnificent to watch.
If you do not know the play, it is in part gruesome, in a way that modern shoot-and-slash special effects nonsense is not.
If studying the play this is a good introduction, but a less edited version is desirable.
