    “Oldboy” is actually based on Japanese comic books of the same name, which was first published in 1996. Even though the English version of Wikipedia says that the movie was “loosely” based on the Japanese comics, the only differences between the movie and the comics are:

    1. the number of years the main character was held hostage (20 years in the remake, 15 years in the first movie, 10 years in the original),

    2. the reason why he was held hostage (in the movie, it’s because the main character spread a bad rumor about his captor back in school days. in the original, it’s because the captor felt insulted when the main character found out that the captor was a lonely guy, and also the captor started getting jealous of the main character.),

    and 3. of course all the characters were changed from Japanese (original) to Korean (2003 film) to Westerners (remake).
