Any film studioEdit
From the 1980s to 1994, there were actually many different kinds of the first two warning screens/scrolls.
Often presenting after this warning scroll is one of two old Korean video warnings. They're actually "parental discretion" video warnings, and were widely used on all South Korean VHS tapes, with the first one from March 1990 to March 1991, and the second from April 1991 to April 1994.
The earliest known upload of one of the Korean video warnings was on May 21, 2006, at Nate Pann Video (pann.nate.com/video).
Another different disclaimer, this warning scroll was created by Shinhan Productions (신한 프로덕션). It was seen on a possible original 1992 VHS print of Fantasia (dubbed in Korean), and also on the 1993 VHS prints of The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. This warning scroll is the first South Korean equivalent of the 1991 green FBI Screens.
Here, the warning screens are recreated into high-definition format.
Beginning in Spring 1994, a new classification age rating disclaimer replaced the 1991-1994 video warning, when the "12+" and "15+" ratings changed colors (blue and yellow, respectively), while the "18+" rating remained red and the "All Ages" rating remained green. This also caused the 12+ and 15+ ratings to become legally restricted film ratings, where no one under those specific ages could rent or purchase such movies, as enforced by law.
The warning scroll can be seen on South Korean imports of VHS tapes such as Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontas, and mid-1990s prints of Peter Pan and The Jungle Book.
This time, as a lighter blue screen fades in, it already has the word "Warning" on top of the screen, then the same disclaimer text from the 1994-1996 version scrolls up, and as the last line goes off screen, the screen would immediately fade out. This warning scroll began on September 16, 1996 with Sleeping Beauty, which contains the film from the 1997 VHS in the U.S. import. It is also the South Korean equivalent of the late 90's green FBI screens.
Starting in late 1998, after the "ban for Japanese products" was lifted, all South Korean imports of VHS tapes contained another video warning, used until around mid-2004. In addition, by around early 1999, this warning scroll was slightly modified, and the disclaimer scrolls up even faster, for 10 seconds instead of 15. This version can be seen on the Korean VHS import of The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.
When DVDs hit the South Korean market in 1999, these were the first to appear since then.
DVDs distributed by Daewon Media use these warning screens.
In Europe, Australia, Japan, South America, and Asia, all Paramount and Universal Pictures films were distributed by CIC (Cinema International Corporation) Video. This was in effect through 1999.
