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.

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.
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.
Hotelier Original Soundtrack (Overseas Version)1 people found this review helpful
November 18, 2006 Very good soundtrack...
All the songs and the instrumental music here are excellent and i just love track #1,2,4,9 & 10.Plus,they provided additional photos of the main cast and also another CD & VCD makes it worthwhile to purchase this item.
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.
Police Story Complete Series1 people found this review helpful
October 21, 2006 Must Buy If A Jackie Fan...
This has always remain as one of my favourite of all time.Jackie's trademark for his well-known daring stunts from PStory I,II,III during his younger days makes the movie interesting and also marked as one of his top movies of all time which rocketed him to stardom as well.
To see him reviving or continuing the story to PStory IV was superb and also the return of Charlie Yeung after many years of absence and strong cast from Daniel Wu,Nicholas Tse and other veteran HK cast.
Would definately add this to my collection.
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.
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.
Love Story in Harvard (English Subtitled)(SBS TV Series)(57)Our Price: US$99.99List: US$129.99Save: US$30.00 (23%)1 people found this review helpful
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.
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.
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.
