June 15, 2008 a must for tear-jerker fans
I just had the chance to watch this DVD, and I recommend this movie for any tear-jerker fans out there. This movie is going to guarantee the viewer to shed some tears, maybe many tears. I love the casting for this movie as they did a wonderful job. The plot isn't difficult or unique, but it was very enjoyable to watch.

June 1, 2008 Wonderful movie
I just finished watching this movie, and I thought it was a wonderful film about love. It will make you smile, laugh, and even cry. If you are into "chick" flick movie, then give this one a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed. It may not be the greatest movie, but it will defintely give you a nice time. By the way, this DVD set comes with a hologram slipcover that shows different shape of heart when turning it at a different angle. Hurry, before it's sold out.

April 24, 2008 Awesome OST - highly recommend
This soundtrack is an excellent CD. There are so many beautiful songs, instrumental and vocal. I can't stopy listening to this soundtrack. I haven't seen the drama yet, but I'm hoping they'll release the drama with English subtitle in the near future so I can buy it. I hope the drama is good as this soundtrack. I highly recommend this OST. I wouldn't be surprised if this one is out of print as word gets out how awesome it is. Buy it before it's too late.

The movie was very confusing at the beginning for me. It made me lose interest from the start; and I didn't want to finish it. However, I made an effort to view it until the end a week later. I thought the last 20 minutes of the film was good when it reveals of what the movie is all about. The only thing I like about the movie is the superb color that the director used in the film. He sure knows how to make it look pretty with his choice of color.

March 21, 2008 Kim Tae Hee is beautiful
Well, I had the chance to watch this movie and I was a little disappointed in it. For some reason, I felt it was on the slow side. There were funny scenes here and there, but it wasn't that hilarious. Overall, it was an "OK" movie to watch, but don't expect too much from this movie. As always, Kim Tae Hee is gorgeous.

March 21, 2008 I'm so hungry now
First of all, the bamboo edition of this movie is considered one of the best packaging out there for this year. It's an amazing set if you can get a hold of one since it was sold-out before release date. As for the movie, I thought the movie was good. It had a nice plot and laughter in the movie, as well as several sad scenes. Overall, it did a nice job. I didn't give it a perfect 10 for the movie, but just a notch below it. Also, they did a great job in finding the young childhood characters of both the main actors in the movie because they look very similiar as an adult. I would recommend this movie.

March 18, 2008 funny film and entertaining
If you like a good comedy, then this one will bring you laughter. There were many hilarious scenes that made me smile. It's not the greatest comedy of recent releases, but it's good. I think the casts did an excellent job with this one. Overall, I recommend this movie if you are looking for a good laugh. It's not going to make you laugh from start to the ending, but it's entertaining with the story.

March 18, 2008 slow drama
I was kind of surprised that I finished watching this movie from the beginning to the end. It was quite slow. I think the problem with the movie was that it didn't have the right characters to make it more interesting. Maybe if they had casts some big names actor, it would have brought more attention to the viewer. Certainly, the movie didn't grab me from the beginning. At least the package of this set is very beautiful.
A Love (DVD) (Special Edition) (Limited Edition) (Korea Version)(2)Our Price: US$27.99List: US$36.99Save: US$9.00 (24%)March 18, 2008 awesome actor, average film
I thought the movie was very average. I had high expectation on this movie because of the main actor. He did a wonderful job in 200 Pounds Beauty, so I wanted to see more of his acting. He did a pretty decent job as a tough guy/bodyguard character, but I think he plays a better role in a comedy movie. I blame half on the average story line of this movie. Maybe the plot didn't portrait a good image of him. Overall, it was just an average film for me. Don't expect it to be a gangster movie with lots of fighting.

I didn't give this movie a high ranking because it was slow at the beginning. The movie became interesting toward the 3/4 mark. I thought Daniel has improved his acting during one emotional scene when he broke the glass. For Daniel Henney's fan, I guess it's a must see just to check out his new haircut. Beside him, the movie would have been ranked near the bottom pole from me.

March 18, 2008 Best Movie of the Year
I have finished watching this movie, and I can't stop thinking about it. It has to be one of the best movie of the year for action/thriller. It had me on my seat glue to the TV from beginning to the ending. This is an awesome movie that keeps you on your seat throughout the show. I can't say enough good things about it, you just need to buy it and check it out for yourself. This is a highly of the highest recommendation from me.

This has to be one of the best anime film that I have seen from Japan. It was an amazing treat with a great storyline added by awesome action sequence with a nice music score. Overall, this is a highly recommended anime. Also, the Korean edition includes a 2 discs set with DTS and English Subtitle. This set is the one to buy with English Subtitle.

February 26, 2008 Excellent movie
If you like action and fighting scenes, then this movie is recommended. I thought the fight scene was incredible. Jet Li, Takeshi, and Andy did a great job in this movie. The romance part was not necessary, but I can understand why director wants to put some in every movie. Overall, I highly recommend this movie as it was entertaining.

January 26, 2008 Excellent movie
I gave this movie a 9/10, almost a perfect 10 movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to be entertain by violence, laughter, happiness, and sadness. It's based on a true event, making the movie more interesting. Again, buy this movie before it goes out of print. This limited edition set is so beautiful for any collector out there in asian cinema.

January 9, 2008 Very Funny
I haven't seen a good comedy from Korea for awhile until this one came up. This defintely a movie that would recommend to others. The movie has a nice plot and twist to it. Both main characters did an excellent job. If you like My Sassy Girl, then you'll enjoy this one. Of course, it's not better than My Sassy Girl, but it's different and funny.

December 28, 2007 Not a horror movie!
At first, I thought this was another horror movie from Korea based on the trailer. After reading some recommendation, I decided to try it out myself. The movie was very entertaining with a lot of suspense. This movie is thriller, and not a horror movie. I felt this movie was very original as I have never seen any other movie with this type of story. If you enjoy a nice thriller movie, then this one is recommended.

December 13, 2007 worth it
I enjoy watching this movie. Han Chae-young was so beautiful in this one as I have become a fan of her now. She did a good job. I didn't realize she was in My Girl and even Autumn In My Heart. Anyway, this movie is defintely better than most Korean movies of recent. And the DVD packaging is superb for this release.

September 30, 2007 Song Hye-Kyo is worth watching
I thought the movie was average as I had higher expectation when the movie was released in the theater. Being a non-Korean, I had some tough moment following the story with reading the subtitle. I felt the story was on the slow pace side. Song Hye-Kyo kept me awake throughout the movie as she looked more beautiful than ever. I would have given this movie a higher rating if the story was less confusing. In the end, I was able to piece things together to draw a conclusion of the movie.
Invisible Target (DVD) (Limited Edition) (Hong Kong Version)(5)Our Price: US$21.99September 30, 2007 Awesome action from HK
Wow! I have seen a lot of HK movies in 2007 so far, and I must admit that this movie is probably the best HK movies that I have seen this year. Maybe something better is down the pipeline, until then, this movie rocks! It had a lot of actions to keep a person entertaining throughout the movie. Added some comedy momemts to the movie; and then you have a complete movie for all genre.
