Looks like I know what large Criterion purchase I'll be making during the upcoming B&N 50% Criterion sale.

I've watched most of these and enjoyed them all. Favorite is A River Called Titus, especially in light of the recent stories about abuses from village elders in the region. What fascinates me is that most everyone is playing who they are naturally so it's like stepping into a time machine to visit another place. The films have huge cultural value, which is of much interest to me.

I would debate how influential "The Housemaid" has been in the last 20 years or slightly more. I mean I'm happy this film was found fairly complete.
A lot of even older Korean films have not even been found complete or at all. It's truly tragic especially since I'd love to see Korean kids going into the film industry having a past they can look at.
It's also just tragic considering almost none of the film industry in Asia has a real native past. Taiwan's early history of film consisted of pro-Japanese propaganda films for the longest time. Even for the earliest Korean films one that was truly from Koreans got very little airing.
I hope a Blu-ray of "The Housemaid" will become available in Korea soon. I hope that Scorsese also ends up working on getting more old Korean films, especially the one's intact from the 30s into HD.
