Super Junior: Super Junior T First Single1 people found this review helpful
June 30, 2007 Sub-Groups
This is the 2nd sub-group for Super Junior.. At first I didn't like it too much because I wasn't expecting it to be so loud and upbeat and it certainly is very different to K.R.Y's music..
I loved the 3rd song from this single as it's the song they song in MKMF awards.. It sounds just as nice especially in high quality.. But I still think the music is too loud to hear their voices..
I think people of all ages would like these trot songs..

June 30, 2007 Unique Voice
People argue that BoA has a better voice.. but that's because BoA's been training and singing for years longer.. I think Ri In's voice is the only Korean female singer that I got attached to as I like that type of strong vocal.. I prefere "Y~ Why" because it's just got a lovely style to it..
I'll be getting this single and her new album along with SuJu's new album when they come out... ^__^
I recommend this to people who like Xiah Junsu because both him and Ri In's voices in "Timeless" duo is breathtaking..
Xing First Single - In Your HandsDecember 30, 2006 Beautiful!
I was randomly searching online for DBSK and SuJu info when I heard of this band~ I decided to check them out on YouTube and to my surprise, I loved them! They're great singers with good looks, 3 out of the 4 boys happen to be younger than me but I still say Kevin has the baby-ish voice. His version of "In your Hands" is in English and sounds so beautiful. Their style of music is ballad so all the songs here are soft, quiet etc. I'd definetly recommend this to everyone who's into DBSK/TVXQ. I was hoping I'd find more of their stuff here but they are a new band so I'll have to wait.
ＷＩＮＤＳ ＲＹＯＨＥＩ 1ＳＴ ＰＥＲＳＯＮＡＬ ＰＨＯＴＯＢＯＯＫSeptember 21, 2006 Cool!
Well, It a Ryohei Chiba photobook, so literally all the pictures are Ryohei (except two with both Ryuichi and Keita). I don't know why I picked this considering my favourite member is Keita but it's still worth it. There are pretty cute pictures of Ryohei in it when he was still young and innocent. There's a few pictures of Ryohei taking a walk with his dog RanRan and another one of him with a ladybird on his jumper. Also, some stickers come with it and a double-sided poster, one side with his wearing a dark red jacket and the other side, a large poster of his face. I think the poster is A3 size, but it is an old photobook. I rate this 9/10 because I feel that this photobook lacks random pictures. They're all the same time, if you know what I mean. You can tell by the same clothes he's wearing and I personally like all random types of images. But I recommend this to Ryohei fans because it's at his most cutest moment and it's not as expensive as their other photobooks.
Boogiewoogie 66 (SINGLE+DVD)(Limited Edition) (Hong Kong Version)(2)Our Price: US$13.25September 21, 2006 Growing up
w-inds. are all grown up now, so their songs have matured. BoogieWoogie 66 is an upbeat and fast song, very much like "Super Lover". I was a little dissapointed at "Drive-Me-Crazy" though, it's not really a song I would like to listen but then again, everyones taste in music is different. "If.." is definetly a good song, very smooth and when I heard it, I knew straight away it was resung by w-inds. It's a very western song, a bit like "Kazauta" from the "Trial" single. The DVD is the photoshoot, filming w-inds. in the car (CD cover) and also other poses, in the studio and "interview" (literally just each of them talking). It lasts 12 minutes. I don't know why they have "Hong Kong Version" when it has no subtitles.
I rate this a 4/5 mainly because I thought "Trial" was better but this is a single worth buying anyway. WEll, It's up to you weither you want to give it a try. ^___^
w-inds Photo Album - VacanzaOur Price: US$38.99August 15, 2006 w-inds. on vacation!
This is GREAT! I love it because the whole photobook is full of pictures of w-inds. on holidays.
Ryohei has grown up alot.
Ryuichi is still wearing his weird clothes and Keita is still a dork...
The quality is alright but it's worth it...
The photobook comes with an A3 size, double-sided poster. It's a must get for all fans.
Like all photobooks from Japan, It's quite dear but I bought it to support w-inds....
Love w-inds., Support them forever! ^0^
4 (Japan Version)August 1, 2006 This truly is their best!
"Rough Style" is just music and some raps really... Not much but I really loved "Deep in my Heart" and "Here we go"... They are the best tracks in Lead's forth album... Shinya wrote the raps for "Deep in my Heart", "Star Playa" and "Jewel of Queen"... The "Summer Madness" album version is just pretty much the same as the one in the single, except it sounds more like the one whe they were performing on Music Fighter... Track 12, "One" is a smoother, quieter and less roudy version of the "Summer Madness" single... "Baby'cuz U" is exactly like how it sounds... Cute and cathy tune that most people would love! "Feel like making love" is a normal lenght song but the lyrics are really short because it's mostly just music... The rest of the songs are pretty cool, Like "Virgin BLue", "Summer Madness" and "Partytune" are more bouncy and louder songs... All rap, hip-hop and a cool style... Hiroki Nakadoi, Shinya Taniuchi, Keita Furuya and Akira Kagimoto, members of Lead are still the grestest hip-hop groups... As for the trading cards, I got my favourite, Akira! The cards a little bigger than your average trading cards so it's great... I HIGHLY recommend this CD for everyone... It's their best album so far!
Laputa: Castle in the Sky1 people found this review helpful
July 20, 2006 Fantastic!
I've watched this so many times that my sister is getting bored of it... It's about a girl with a stone on a necklace that contains powers that the good and evil side both wants. The little girl tries to protect it to prevent evil and only she knows how the stone really works. She eventually meets this very genki boy that helps her escape. Many things happen until they reach the "Castle in the sky"... I reaslly recommend this because it's quite interesting and has excitemnet in it...
Whisper of The Heart1 people found this review helpful
July 20, 2006 So wonderful!
It's such a cute story about the pure innocent love between two children. They meet, have a crush and a dislike for each other. Both have dreams to do what they always wanted and as their love grows, their chances of their dreams expand with them... It's a cute cute story that I've watched three times.
Only Yesterday (1991) (DVD) (2-Disc Edition) (Hong Kong Version)(2)Our Price: US$22.49July 20, 2006 A little boring
This anime is about a lady in her late twenties traving back to her hometown for a visit. During her travel, she sees things around her that reminds her of her childhood, bitter and sweet. She eventually reaches her hometown and meets her family and even other people. A romance developes later... It's a pretty cute story but a little boring because I was expecting something more exciting...
Tombstone Of Fireflies (1988) (VCD) (Hong Kong Version)(11)Our Price: US$7.99July 20, 2006 Depressing...
I watched this a long time ago and I remember crying because it was so sad... How two children at a very young age during the World War II lost their parents... As they strive to survive... they find many ways to live properly until the war is over... This anime shows the tragedy of the innocent people during the war. No matter what country attacks whoever, there are ALWAYS innocent people involve in every side.
Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind (Hong Kong Version)(4)Our Price: US$22.99July 20, 2006 This was pretty good
I had to watch this twice because I missed parts of it... It was quite interesting but not too exciting with a tad bit of romance... It really shows that women are quite strong... as both leads, evil and good are female... Something enjoyable to watch after you've watched the super good ones...
Super Junior Single - U1 people found this review helpful
July 17, 2006 Love this song!
I swear this song is really addictive... I first wasn't too sure about this band because of their name but after listening to Super Junior's "Miracle" I though it was great... U is even better and it's a cooler style than their other videos... If only there was a DVD version... The MV looks great...

I waned to get this but it's out of stock... I've watche this before, 3 times. The series is great because you'll like the main characters but hate the supporting ones... This is a series that will have you laughing one minute and crying the next... It's the first Korean drama series that got me into Korean dramas and movies... I really recommend this to everyone...
Sassy Girl Chun-hyang OST(KBS TV Series)July 12, 2006 Music from the Drama...
If you've watched "Sassy Girl Chun-Hyang" than there's no reason for you not to buy this... The songs are all from the series and are great bar 2... Listening to this will remind you of the drama and it's very cheap for a OST Cd... so why not get this?

July 12, 2006 Nice~
It's true... Very girly indeed for a dude but it's perfect for a girl... It's a little silver dagger accessory and it looks really nice on silver or black flip phones... It's a little pricey for a phone accessory but it is a collectors item I guess, so...
Palace aka: Princess Hours (MBC TV Series)July 12, 2006 MBC series
I skipped parts of the first episode because it wasn't really a funny series... But it was actually very good. "Princess Hours" also known as "Goong" as in palace is 24 episodes long which is 8 episodes longer than the usual series I watch... So it's not surprising that it costs more... It doesn't have a very interesting plot but it's enjoyable to watch just for the sake of watching something... I'd probably enjoy this if I was older or in my twenties... Kim Joon Hoon (supporting actor) is a new actor and he's very cute... the main actress is Yoon Eun Hae from the band Baby V.O.X and I think she's a bit funky in this series...
PhoneJuly 12, 2006 Eerie movie
I can't stand scary movies because I get scarewd easily but I really enjoyed this one. It's more of a creepy, eerie movie that uses thought... The female lead is very familiar but I can't remember who she is, as for the little girl, GREAT actress she is... I recommend this to people who likes scary movies but are afraid to watch it...
Dong Bang Shin Ki Max Bico Pendant - Silver1 people found this review helpful
June 29, 2006 Like I said!
Two younster made up Bico! I just had to get this when I saw it... well, it was between the Jaejoong (Hero) cross pendant or Changmin (Max) cross one... I chose this one cause it's very unlikely for me to get this... I usually get the cross style like Jaejoong's pendant but this one's very unusual... Mine will be arriving anytime soon! And It's Max's!
Dong Bang Shin Ki Bico Chain C - SilverJune 29, 2006 Bico!
Bico jewellery are all the rage! Well, they're an extremly famous brand name jewellery from Australia that made it world-wide! Started off by two youngsters who thought "I want to share my designs"... I know w-inds., Lead and Flame loves it! I've seen Keita from w-inds. wearing one before, Akira from Lead with one and Yusuke and Hisato from Flame loves Bico jewellery... But remember, 48cms for a chain is not very long... probably bearly fitting around your neck... well, depending on your neck... Anyhow, it won't be very long anyway...
