Rain Vol. 4 - Rain's World3 people found this review helpful
October 23, 2006 It's Good.
He's back and he's awesome! He not only got buff but he also improved signing. Ever so talented Rain should do well with this excellent album. He really put a lot of thought and care into each song and his efforts shows. It's a good album.
Shinhwa Vol. 8 - State of the Art Special Edition2 people found this review helpful
August 11, 2006 I LOVE THIS ALBUM!!!
Shinhwa shows once again why they've been at the top of the K-Pop world for so long! I love the title track, as well as tracks 1, 2, 3, 6, and 9. Shin Hye-Sung still has gorgeous voice. Jun Jin's voice has improved tremendously. You won't be disappointed!

July 20, 2006 It's Awesome!
It's nice to see this album on the chart again. It's truly one of the best. Each member sings well - I love Shin Hye Sung's melodic voice. Kang Ta wrote beautiful songs!

June 14, 2006 It's Awesome!!!
This was one of the best movies of the year! Jang Dong Gun, Lee Jong Jae and Lee Mi Yeon gave awesome performances! The movie has excellent story line, well-executed action scenes and perfect performances from its 2 main actors. We haven't seen Lee Jong Jae in a while, but he delivered one powerful performance. This is a must movie for your DVD collection!

June 5, 2006 Excellent!!!
Still considered one of the best Korean album, Shinhwa's fifth album is truly a masterpiece. I love to hear them sing - especially Hye Sung's beautiful and melodic voice. Go, Shinhwa!

June 5, 2006 Not Again!!!
Oh, boy. Here we go again with a group of singers who can't really dance or sing! I don't know why they don't just disband. Isn't SM Entertainment happy with just TVXQ? TVXQ is much better than Super Junior.

June 5, 2006 Okay but Not Great
Hmm..A bit mediocre album from a talented group of musicians. Min Kyoung Hoon didn't really improve a lot from the last album. Some songs are great but others are unbearable. Not a happy medium in this album.

June 2, 2006 What a Disappointment!
It was a horrible movie - it has no plot!!!! I don't know why Hyun Bin made such a bad movie. Very disappointing indeed. Besides, his co-start could not really act. He's not that good looking to pull off a no plot/no acting movie just yet.

June 2, 2006 It's a Good Romantic Movie!
This was a good date movie. It's romantic, funny, sad and touching. Kwon Sang Woo is so lovely. I was a bit surprised by his nude scene (yes, he as a gorgeous body still) but he pulled it off very well (quite funny too). His co-stars acted very well. I highly recommend this movie.

May 30, 2006 Awesome!!!
What an awesome first singles album from a group of gorgeous and talented guys. I can't wait for their first full album! They're currently working as MCs and DJs. Kyu Jong is also acting in a mini-series. You won't be disappointed.
SS 501 2nd Single4 people found this review helpful
May 30, 2006 Highly Recommended!
This group of 5 very talent singers has taken Korea by storm last year and this album shows why. Each singer has unique, powerful and/or sweet voices and can interpret the music very well. They can not only sing, but can act, produce and MC. They are currently working as DJs for one of the hottest radio show in Korea. I highly recommend their second singles album to all music lovers.
Running Wild Director's Cut Limited Edition2 people found this review helpful
May 3, 2006 It's a Good Movie!
KSW is at his best in this action packed movie. Plot twist at the end is also very good. Lee Jung Moon, a young actor who plays KSW's younger brother is excellent in his movie debut. It's a good entertainment. I highly recommend this movie to all movie goers.

Lee Seo Jin looks out of place in this sword fighting movie. Even the cameo actors, such as Choi Ji Woo of Winter Sonata, act better than Lee. Also, plot is just too simple. Whole movie is about escorting Lee from a province to the capital city. Worse yet, just about the entire movie has no color! It looks like a black and white movie for the most part. Only good thing about this movie was the few fighting sequences. Very disappointing movie indeed.
SS 501 2nd Single6 people found this review helpful
February 15, 2006 They are Awesome!!!
As a fan of DBSK, I didn't have high hopes for this CD. But SS501 is awesome!!! I don't understand why some people do not like them, but they sing very well. I actually think that they're cuter than DBSK - yes, there are room for both DBSK and SS501 in the music industry. Although each group has its strength & weaknesses, overall, music listeners will benefit from both group's presence. After all, both group's presence in the oversea market will enhance Korean musicians' advance in foreign countries.
Any music lover will enjoy this music. This is a must buy!
Dong Bang Shin Ki & Super Junior 05 - Show Me Your Love14 people found this review helpful
December 22, 2005 What a Disappointment!
Okay, this album is clearly designed to promote Super Junior - at the expense of TVXQ! Why is SM Entertainment not promoting TVXQ's Christmas album, which is great? Instead, SM is focused on promoting Super Junior, a group of guys who are mainly actors and models. Unfortunately, Super Junior is not as good looking as TVXQ or SS501. Worse yet, unlike its competitors, Super Junior can't sing!!! IF you want a nice winter album, buy TVXQ's Christmas album or SS501's second singles instead.

December 22, 2005 BAD, BAD, BAD!
Only SM Entertainment would produce such a nonsense group. This group consists of 12 guys, of which 9-10 members who can't sing well!!! What's the point??? Granted some of them made it into the group by being actors and models, but as "singers" they should at least be competent at singing!!! I was very disappointed with this album. DON'T BUY IT! IT'S A WASTE OF YOUR $$$!!!

December 21, 2005 Wow!!!
What an excellent album!!! I highly recommend this album to not just fans of SS501 but to all music lovers. They've really improved from their smashing debut album. They've grown as singers more than I'd thought they would in just a short time. Lead singer, Young Sang, Jung Min and Hyong Jun have excellent voices. You won't be disappointed!!!

December 8, 2005 Awesome!!!
Wow! SS501 is finally back with their second singles anblum and what an album it is! They're truly talented group of singers and, with Hyun Jung and Jung Min acting in a Korean sitcom "Can Love Be Re-Feeled?", SS501 proves that they're really multi-faceted entertainers. They're good friends with Hero and U-Know of TVXQ, and it's nice to see both TVXQ and SS501 doing well. I hope fans for both groups support these 10 talented young men.
Dong Bang Shin Ki Vol. 2 - Rising Sun18 people found this review helpful
September 29, 2005 Ultimate Disappointment!
As a fan of DBSK, I was very disappointed with their second-full album. In fact, I'm quite upset at the SM Entertainment for making 5 very talented guys put out an album that is clearly sub-par standard. Most of the songs on this album is either punk rock or heavy medal style that clearly undermines DBSK's singing talents. Instead of making an album that accentuates DBSK's voices, SM is trying to make a wanna-be H.O.T. album. I'm sorry to say that no matter how successful they were, H.O.T. disbanded years ago and SM just needs to get over that. DBSK is not an H.O.T. wanna be. This group has its own sound and voices, and, unfortunately, this album doesn't show case their musical talents. "Rising Sun" is the only rock song that is tolerable - only because the group's best singer, Xiah, managed to sing it well. Perhaps DBSK needs to do what Shinhwa did so well - wait for the contract with SM to end and move over to another entertainment company that will show case their talents - both as a group and as an individual performer. As a fan of DBSK, I'd strongly urge any music lover to NOT buy this CD. Perhaps that will be enough to convince SM Entertainment to allow DBSK to put in songs in their 3rd album that fit DBSK's musical color.

September 22, 2005 It's Good
It's a good buy. Has some good M/Vs that you may not have seen before if you're overseas or if you're a new fan of Shinhwa. If you want a DVD with latest M/Vs you should check out more recent DVDs.
