Fireworks (Ep.1-17) (End) (English Subtitles) (Malaysia Version)(3)Our Price: US$47.991 people found this review helpful
February 25, 2007 good but not one of the best
When Shin Na Ra is nearing to her 30s and spent most of her time and resources in helping her fiance's career but breaks up with her for another woman,Shin Na Ra decides to confront and reclaim him back.She apply for a job in a cosmetic company where the girl,Mi Rae (Park Eun Hye) works.
As usual,before that fate destined both Na Ra and In Jae (Kang Ji Hwan) to come across each other's path though in the wrong way.They eventually work together and love develops.
Nothing to shout about on the storyline except that it does potrays that a young man can still makes a relationship works with a woman whom may be older than him as long as the chemistry and the strong friendship foundation is there.In time,Na Ra learns that there is more to life than returning to her old fiance and she eventually builds up her career and at the same time opens up her wounded heart to In Jae.
Acting wise,Chae Young's character is lovable here and I can comprehend her situation when she's nearing her 30s and the frustration that she has to go through.Eun Hye's character is quite mean here but in the end,it reveals the reason and I've to say Ji Hwan is good looking here.His acting and also the rest of the supporting cast are good.
Story got a little draggy in the middle though.Worth buying if you're the type that likes this kind of storyline or a fan of Chae Young or Ji Hwan.

Love, So Divine (Malaysia Version)1 people found this review helpful
October 20, 2006 don't expect too much...
This movie is about KSW and his friend starred as a seminarian whom was sent to a church in a small village after a fiasco that he had make during the service in church and eventually the typical fell-in-love with a girl.Ending is quite predictable with him opting to choose the girl instead of becoming a priest.
Plotline of the movie is nothing refreshing with the exception that he's a seminarian this time and other than that,it's just another normal type of boy-meets-girl,fell in love and a happy ending.
Acting wise,KSW is ok though i wouldn't say it's one of his best performances as compared to Stairway where i get to see more of how he expressed himself during the show.Even i like Ha Ji Won's performance better in Something Happened in Bali.

October 20, 2006 Not the best...
It's nice that the producer filmed some of the scenes in one of the prestigious law school in US,Harvard.But,i think KRW need to improve his english skills as it wasn't easy trying to understand what he speak during the show.
As for the show,i'd say it's not too bad and quite interesting as it explores the medical side and how people can misabuse the powers given for granted and the innocent lives that cost it.
Into The Sun (Vol.1-20) (End) (US Version)1 people found this review helpful
October 16, 2006 another good show..
Something different to see KSW in a uniform and is a navy soldier no less makes him look even better here.Overall a nice short series about him who coincidentally fell in love with MSB whose fiance died in a car accident which indirectly connected to KSW and a brother who loves his sister so much as to protect and guard her.Funny scenes but also sad one too though you can expect here a happy ending at least.
Dating Now (English Subtitled)(SBS TV Series)1 people found this review helpful
September 18, 2006 it's all right....
I'd say that this series isn't that bad but it's not that good either and i have to agree that it the storyline was too long and draggy though kwan sang woo,chae rim and so ji sub were good....
However,it was interesting in how the show reflected the type of dating men that we meet and that the social status should not be a deterrent in your marriage either.
Wedding (English Subtitled)(KBS TV Series) (End) (DVD) (Korea Version)(14)Our Price: US$99.99List: US$129.99Save: US$30.00 (23%)1 people found this review helpful
June 23, 2006 Value added and good...
One of the better series that i liked so far.Good chemistry between JNR and RSW and supporting cast.The story started off well but it did get a little draggy in the middle.
However,there's value to this story whereby it takes a lot to make a marriage works between 2 people be it of similar or different interest and view and love alone isn't enough but there needs to be tolerance,understanding,trust,compromise and etc...
Would reccommend to purchase this series as it highlights their making of the show and their outtakes.
Typhoon (DVD) (2-Disc) (Korea Version)2 people found this review helpful
June 17, 2006 10/10
This was my first Korean movie that i've watched in a cinema this year and i have to say i was blown away by this show.Superb acting from both Jang Dong Gun and Lee Jong Jae where it epitomise between revenge and doing what was right in protecting and sacrificing for the country.Full blown action movie and the fighting sequence was whoa !
One of the must buy movie.Never knew that Korea was capable of coming out good movies which is at par with some of the notoble Hong Kong movies.
My Lovely Sam Soon (End) (DVD) (English Subtitles) (Hong Kong Version)(21)Our Price: US$58.992 people found this review helpful
June 16, 2006 Something different....
This is an excellent show except i have to agree with one of the reviewer here which i also questions on some of the abrupt ending to some of the supporting casts' characters;did sam soon's sister eventually got together with the chef and why is the secretary always so dull and lifeless,how and why was she adopted by Jun Hin's mother.
However,other than that,the show was good and it's refreshing to have a character which isn't perfect in looks,outspoken,brash and spontaneous whom like some of us are always dealing in our daily lives in relationships,eating habit,work problems related and etc....For a good looking guy,Jun Hin to even fall in love with a girl like her later on proves that looks isn't important when it comes to falling in love but the personality of the girl.
This is a show that is a must buy.
Palace (AKA: Princess Hours) OST (MBC TV Drama)1 people found this review helpful
June 16, 2006 only some tracks are good....
After going through it,i generally prefer the songs sang by the artiste especially by j and howl than the instrumental music.Only few of the instrumental songs are nice to listen to.However,i wish that they have included more artiste singing than music.Probably also because i've not seen the show yet for me to relate the music with the show.Hoping they would come out with english subtitle dvd.Still would prefer "my girl" soundtrack which is far better.

June 10, 2006 worth watching...
this series weren't too bad.excellent acting from both the main cast and the supporting actors.Imagine of having to face the difficulties in expressing your love to a future sister-in-law whom likes the elder brother and the plot got more interesting and intense as the story evolved.But luckily,it was a happy ending.
Something Happened In Bali (SBS TV Series)1 people found this review helpful
June 6, 2006 not too bad....
This was shown a while back in my country and i have to say it's like a typical story of 2 man liking the same woman.Acting wise were not too bad and the story is fill with laughter,sadness,downside and all the emotions.However,i guess i didn't quite expect the ending.Not exactly my favourite since i'm the type that prefers a happy ending.Still,worth seeing but don't think it's worth buying.

May 23, 2006 Very good....
This has got to be one of the best soundtrack that i've bought.Simply love all the songs in here and i can just listen and also watch the show again and again...Those of you that like this show,should buy the CD too.
My Girl (English Subtitled)(SBS TV Series)1 people found this review helpful
May 6, 2006 As good As Full House and Sweet 18.....
I have to say i had wish the drama had lasted for more than 16 episodes as it's very entertaining,funny and hilarious and also sad and makes you cry.Suffice to say,at least i'm glad that this is a happy ending show.All the casts had very good on-screen chemistry and Lee Da Hae's potrayal in this character was excellent and as a happy go lucky girl compared to the one in Green Rose.
In addition,they've also release this DVD at the right time when South Korea is promoting Jeju Island as this year's tourist destination.Here,they show a much better view of how Jeju Island looks like and also one of their tallest builing,Building 63.Looking forward to see Dong Wook and Da Hae in more dramas together.
Recommended people to purchase this DVD as it's worth it.
