You can't blame YesAsia for poor manufacturing quality... First of all the card is stuck on the flap of the box your t-shirt is in, secondly my box is also teared so I'm sure the box is of cheap quality.
You should blame the company that produced these CD's and not YesAsia because they send you what they receive.
For those who are asking about the badly scratched CD case, there is a plastic protector on it which you can take off.
Hope this has cleared some things.
Orange Caramel 1st Mini Album (After School Global Unit)(8)Our Price: US$10.99List: US$14.99Save: US$4.00 (26%)1 people found this review helpful
July 6, 2010 Kind of unexpected...
Being a fan of After School I pre-ordered this album even before I listened to the tracks that were on it. The songs weren't really what I was expecting.... If you ask me do I like it? not really.
I'm happy though because its autographed, if it wasn't I wouldn't have planned on purchasing it. Major disappointment, I guess a good try by Pledis but they really need to 'up' their game.
4Minute 2nd Mini Album - Hit Your Heart2 people found this review helpful
June 10, 2010 4minute is the B2ST!
This album is awesome. I was very happy when I got it! First off all the songs are top notch, there is not one song I don't, like personally 2, 3, 4, 7 are my favs..
Second of all the whole packaging of the album is excellent at first when you hold onto it you'd think it was like rains album where it slides out but no it's not it flips out sideways and there's this small magnet which keeps it in place. Pictures are really high quality. Overall I'm extremely happy with this mini album.
BEAST 1st Mini Album - Beast Is The B2STApril 24, 2010 MUST GET CD!
BEAST fan or not, this CD is a must-get! Out of all the CD's i have, this one is my favourite (im talking about packaging here) the songs are obviously great, anything from BEAST never fails to disappoint. But yeah back to the packaging, its a box..not just any box...a quality box nothing like the Taeyang cardboard rubbish... its durable, fabric-like material. This alone is totally worth the price. Not just the box case but the photo/lyric booklet is of great quality. There is not one flaw i can find in this whole album. They put alot of effort into this 1st mini album and honestly i can tell!
Rain Special Album - Back To The BasicApril 24, 2010 Awesome~
I'm not even gonna talk about the songs, every single one of them are 10/10. The casing is very unique, out of all the cds i've got this is very different. The box case slides outwards <--- ---> which is pretty awesome, however sometimes it does get stuck and requires some "brute" force in order to open it fully but if you take some time you shouldn't damage the box. The CD booklet is at the back of the box and slides upwards whilst the CD is hidden under a lenticular 3-photo card of Rain. The lenticular card basically "flips" downwards and there's the CD. The whole album is like a flip and slide maze loll, photos aren't very special kinda the same for every single one of them i.e. Rain topless showing his abs -_- (im a guy), im sure female fans beg to differ. But you get the point, Rain is awesome good to know he put some thought into the design aspects.
After School 3rd Single Album - Bang!April 15, 2010 Dissapointing from one of my favourite groups....
Look im gonna keep this short...the CD only has like what 4 tracks?! and not even full tracks...
01. Let’s Do It! <------(Intro only about 1:30 long and is only instrumentals...)
03. With U
04. 뱅(Bang)! (Inst.)<-----(Filler track i.e. instrumentals...)
so basically this whole album only has 2 full vocal songs... I felt kinda ripped off by it...But i must say the photobook is basically the only thing good about it. Has like 2-3 sets of photos of each member... im a big fan of afterschool but this album didnt meet my CD standards... anyway looking forward to their next!
Tae Yang : 2008 1st Mini Album - HOT1 people found this review helpful
March 31, 2010 Excellent Album.
Okay the songs were great. Every single one of them I give 10/10. Taeyang is truly a great artist, as far as i know G-dragon also helped compose and produce a song or two which definitely shows how talented he is. What put me off was the packaging... Now dont get me wrong its definitely unique and HOT. The album is round with these shiny sticker-jewels which are lined around the case. What disappointed me was the fact that i thought it would have been a foam-like material case with a zipper that goes around it...but infact it is made of a cheap soft cardboard that rips pretty easily. I think in terms of innovation YG gets 10 but budget put into producing it 0. It just doesn't do Taeyang justice by using cheap cardboard! even G-Dragon has a plastic face mould this should also!

March 31, 2010 RunDevilRun Good!
I didn't buy the unrepackaged version that is Oh! because there wasn't much to offer.....but i can say this repackaged one is pretty good. However the only songs that are actually outstanding above the rest are the popular ones such as Genie, Gee, Oh and Run Devil Run...the rest aren't that great. The packaging is way better than Oh!, which for those who have it know it was kinda like a "brochure/mini-booklet" album. SM has done a decent job on Run Devil Run...As you can tell by the cover image, it kinda looks like a film poster. That is why I think SM has decided to make it into a DVD-like album instead of the traditional square or rectangular hardcover albums. The is truly a great buy for SNSD fans.
The Storm Warriors (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)February 19, 2010 Mediocre
I was waiting so long for this movie to see what all the hype was about... It wasn't as good as I had thought but still worth watching. What lacked was a good storyline and script. Some scenes were great, however others weren't....In fact I almost fell asleep watching halfway through. With such a big budget I expect more. CGI is good but they totally overused it. Now movie aside, the dvd quality was poor, I got a lot of grey layers and the aspect ratio is drastic. This is most likely from the filming so can't do anything about it...
