Palace aka: Princess Hours Director's Cut Limited Edition (MBC TV Series)(7)Our Price: US$138.99List: US$180.99Save: US$42.00 (23%)April 15, 2007 worth buying
After searching for so long,i finally found another site where i managed to purchase the region 1 dvd with english subs at a cheaper price compared to another of my regular site that was released by ya entertainment.
I would recommend that you purchase this series as it's interesting to know how a korean palace culture is like.Yun Hye's acting was excellent here as she truly potrays on how she coped in the palace being a commoner and always constantly being watched of her every move.For Ji Hoon,he fairs ok being on the main screen for the first time.I do have to say the veteran actors and actresses have played their parts well and convincingly.
Besides that,it's good to know that there's eng sub on its special features too.
Fantastic Couple OST (MBC TV Series)March 25, 2007 very interesting..

Sassy Girl Chun-hyang OST(KBS TV Series)March 25, 2007 get it...

The Sad Love Story Piano Music BookOur Price: US$19.99List: US$25.99Save: US$6.00 (23%)February 24, 2007 nice
I was excited to receive the music score for this show.I have not start playing it yet other than browsing it through and it looks good.
Sad Love Story (English Subtitled)(MBC TV Series)February 24, 2007 quite good....
Bought this show after seeing KSW in Stairways to heaven and few of his other new movie released.I've to say i'm a huge fan of him.I've to admit i received it last Nov and been procrastinating this show and just about to complete this series.
Storyline is basically a person name Suh Jun Yeong (KSW) whom met a blind girl,Park Hae In(KHS) and somehow they always get separated after a while and met only many years later.In short,it's more of a love triangle between both of them and another best friend of Jun Yeong.Not much to shout about the story other than it's partly happy and also sad ending.
As for the acting,all of them played their part well except that KSW's character here,as i agreed with some of the reviewers that it's depressing and he cried as much as he did in his STH show.
Reccomend to purchase if you like KSW.
New Hit Song & Drama Best Piano Music BookOur Price: US$19.99List: US$25.99Save: US$6.00 (23%)November 22, 2006 wish there's english sub
I've tried playing few of the songs and i actually kind of know that few songs were from Princess Hours,My Lovely Sam Soon and Stairway to Heaven and if i'm not wrong,Sad Love Story as well.Other than that,i've not really figure out other songs...
Would be good idea if they also translate it to English for better understanding.Have a hard time trying to figure out the Korean wordings and translating it.
Summer Scent - Original Sound Track (Overseas Version) (CD+VCD)(10)Our Price: US$18.99List: US$24.99Save: US$6.00 (24%)November 18, 2006 Very Good...
I've yet to see this show and somehow I've purchased the soundtrack first as it's value for money with 1 CD and the other a VCD and also inclusive a set of photos of the main cast too which added perfectly to my current collection.
Music here are more of a ballad listening and instrumental yet it's nice to listen to when you need to relax.
Sweet 18 OST (KBS TV Series)November 18, 2006 another good soundtrack
Thank goodness i managed to purchase this before it ran out of stock.Have listened to it and all the music and instrument featured here are also played during the show.Worth buying and adding it to my collection.
Stairway to Heaven Cellphone AccessoryNovember 18, 2006 Happy & Satisfied
Just bought 2 of these and have to say that i'm happy that this was in good quality and worth the money and more for those who are fan of STH.
Rob-B-Hood (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)October 23, 2006 Another HK's Jacky Movie....
Another of HK flick full of action,humour,sadness and happiness except this time it involved a baby.I think the star of the show is the baby himself who is so adorable who is of various mixture parentage.
As for Jacky himself,he's not as swift and fast as compared to his younger days but he can still perform some of the daring stunts.As for Louis Koo and Michael Hui,they aren't too bad here.
The movie plot is just average.However,this is still an enjoyable family show kind of thing.
Running Wild Director's Cut Limited EditionOctober 21, 2006 Not so blowout by this show...
I have to agree with one of the reviewer here whereby this movie very much depicts the so called Infernal Affairs except this is a shorter story compared to the HK version.Here,you see KSW acting in a good cop who doesn't trust the system and a prosecutor,YJT to team up and try and put the bad guy,convincingly played by SBH as YGJ who is heartless and very bad.
This time the character KSW played shows more of his versatile side towards an action film and his fighting skills but there's a tendency to overdo his character a little.But with YJT teaming up,both created a good combination of a good cop and a prosecutor who initially believes in judicial system but lost his beliefs and what he thought he had fought for in it towards end of the film.
Yea,i also agree with one of the reviewer whereby there are still loose loop in the storyline as in what happened to the videotape that was recorded in the evidence room when Bae was asked turned the table on them.
I agree that this show isn't exactly one of the best i've seen compared to Typhoon but i give credit to the producer for attempting it.
Greatest Hits Of Korea Drama 1999-2005 (6CD) (Taiwan Version)(1)Our Price: US$62.99List: US$81.99Save: US$19.00 (23%)October 20, 2006 Just Perfect....
I have to say i was impress by its packaging as i didn't expect for it to arrive in a big boxset.Have to say it cost me extras too due to custom duties.
Have listened to some of it and i really do like the songs selection in here from all the various shows from Full House,Spring Day and etc...
Fully reccomend to purchase this item for those interested in tv dramas soundtracks.
On the Edge (DTS Version) (Hong Kong Version)October 14, 2006 Intense and action pack
A movie with superb and strong cast from the notoble Francis Ng,Nick Cheung,Rain Li,Anthony Wong whom have all gave a good performance in this intense show.This show is slightly different in a sense that it shows an undercover cop's life after he had successfully arrested the top boss of a triad in HK after doing it for 8 years.
As can be shown in this film,it's not an easy task to return to normal life and having not gaining trust from his police workforce and constantly in suspicion.
It may not be the best movie of all time but it's still is worth watching it.
Bride from Hanoi (English Subtitled)(SBS Special Drama)
Bride from Hanoi (English Subtitled)(SBS Special Drama) DVD Region All(8)Our Price: US$33.99List: US$44.99Save: US$11.00 (24%)October 14, 2006 Not too bad...
it's nice to see a different style though the story is a little typical of show of a guy-LJS who met and fell in love with a Vietnamese girl-KOB when he was working there and then left the country and only to meet again a year later when his brother ordred a mail-order bride which happens to be her.
KOB had potrayed well as a convincing vietnamese girl and her fluent in the language makes it more realistic to the show as well.
Stairways to Heaven Original Soundtrack (Overseas Version)(22)Our Price: US$17.99List: US$23.99Save: US$6.00 (25%)October 13, 2006 A perfect 10.....
All i can say is that this is truly one of the best love and sad drama and i really feel the on-screen chemistry and how convincing they are between KWS & CJW.I definately like his potrayal here better than Almost Love.
As for the songs here,all are very good and worth listening again and again.The right kind of music that were composed makes it important as part of the show.Reccommend that you buy this soundtrack if you like the show too.
Endless Love II (A Tale of Autumn II): Winter Song of Love Original Soundtrack (Overseas Version)(35)Our Price: US$16.99List: US$22.99Save: US$6.00 (26%)October 13, 2006 Superb & Good Music..
I have to say i like the package that came with this which also includes some extras on the dvd and all the nice photos of the main cast.
As for the songs and the music,all of it are good and worth listening and buying.
Stairway to Heaven (English Subtitled)(SBS TV Series)(24)Our Price: US$111.99List: US$145.99Save: US$34.00 (23%)October 13, 2006 Excellent But Very Sad........
Firstly,i'd have to say i seldom watch any sad movie/tv dramas.However,after hearing from my friend who has watch it and liked the show,i decided to purchase it.
I have to say this is one of the best show i've watched despite having a sad ending which left me teary eyed.I'd say performances from CJW and KSW and also the rest of the cast SYH and KTH were well potrayed and excellent.Chemistry were there for both CJW and KSW and i hope they will do more dramas together.
I have to agree with some reviewers here that in some parts,the show tend to drag.I think i'd have hope that they had emphasized a little more of a relationship between Jung-Suh Han and the father towards the end of the show and how the father felt to see her beloved daughter passing away and how he cope with it.
I feel that the character of the stepmother and the stepsister was too mean but the actresses have done well here.Still prefer KTH in Love Story in Harvard.
A truly compelling drama that focuses on first love and how much has been sacrificed and staying in faith and true to each other despite the years passed by and all the obstacles that they went through and believing in each other as well.
Spring Waltz OST (KBS TV Series)July 18, 2006 Nice Soundtrack..
The music here are relatively for easy listening pleasure.Like the piano instrument that were played in some of tracks,so soothing and calm and nice to listen to.
Save Your Last Dance For Me OST (SBS TV Series)July 17, 2006 Excellent Soundtracks....
This was one of my long-awaited soundtrack and i have to say it was worth the wait.Never did i expected it to have english versions of their main music soundtrack.But it was good and i'm glad that they have this version as well.Wish they could produce some english version as well for some of the soundtracks.All the music and instrumental are nice to listen to again and again.You should purchase this CD if the show is also one of your favourite.
Green Rose OST (SBS TV Series)July 17, 2006 It's good...
At long last,this one came out and after having listening to it,the soundtracks are quite good with mixture of instrumental and music though i'm more of a music kind of person than instrumental.Definately can't listen to this if you're sleepy as the instrumental music are kinda on the soft and melodious side.But it's worth buying.
