  1. Just wanted to share updates from the cafe. There will be no subtitles for the BluRay or DVD (sigh) oh well I hope the lessons I am taking will be good enough by the time the premium edition is released. Well, I've been rewatching the drama so maybe I will by then have memorized their lines LoL
  2. @yoojungfan in the cafe they said its DVD Region 3. I'm from the US where supposedly DVD Region 1 is the only thing that works but I have bought other Director's cut DVD (Descendants of the Sun, W) and they all played well. I must say though that I use a bluray player to watch DVDs
  3. Here's the Global DVD link http://www.yes24.com/24/goods/39920093 The DVD is $120 base price (shipping will be dependent on your country). I just cancelled my BluRay order and switched to DVD (it's a $70 savings and like what I said DVD works well for me even in a big screen). In the cafe they are opening up the question board for members to post comments who they would want for interviews. I am not sure if this will remain as a premium edition or a director's cut. I'll ask. PS: I asked if the DVD will have the same contents as BluRay and the admin said yes (i just lost the actual response bc I was editing the post when then responded...anyways I asked again for documentation purposes). So looks like the difference will really be more on image quality between BR and DVD (just like in other drama promotions). If there will be a difference in the content, I'd cry really hard bc I had cancelled my BR order after I ordered DVD. Hmmm maybe I still have time to cancel the cancellation or re-order again...sigh
  4. Yep great news indeed that BluRay production is a go. Now I'm seriously thinking if I should order the DVD and cancel my BluRay order, it's still a ₩66,000 savings and the DVD quality is really ok even at a really big screen TV.
  5. Here's the latest from the BluRay Premium Edition Cafe. The current preorders are 622, the target to proceed was supposedly 800 units. Members of the cafe are asking if the promo team will extend the preorder period to try to reach the target. The admins replied by saying they will know more tomorrow. Anyways, the original deadline is at 11:59PM today Korean time (so less than 4 hrs to go). @Liza Cee thanks, yep I've seen that actually I was thinking more of floor plan/layout. I know BS house is a real house (that's what they use for Doctor Crush too) so really curious about MH house.
  6. I just checked the BluRay promotion daum cafe and no current update if the target was met or not. The promo team did say that the distributors were out from April 28 to May 9 so they are not able to get actual count of the orders. We'll probably know more by tomorrow. BTW, has anyone posted in the past about the possible layout of MinHyuk's place? I bet its just a set and not an actual house. I've always wondered though if the stairs shown in the shots do lead to the rooms in the 2nd floor (from the exterior the house does seem to have a second floor).
  7. Hi guys, Not sure if anyone has posted this here, but here are instructions for ordering in English from the cafe http://m.cafe.daum.net/dobongsoondvd/fiI0/1?listURI=%2Fdobongsoondvd%2FfiI0%3FboardType%3D And here's the main bulletin board made for Foreigners http://m.cafe.daum.net/dobongsoondvd/fiI0?boardType=
  8. Did you try the global one? I use a mobile browser and for me it's all in English. This is the exact link to the bluray premium edition. https://global.yes24.com/Goods/38836614 click on coupon so it wilm save in your session the availablr coupons, then either add to cart or checkout (since this is a preorder just do checkout, even if you add other items i dont think yes24 ships separately they will wait for all in your cart to be available before it ships). Then its a typical checkout page. You can select alipay or paypal (in the US, when you buy for more than $200 paypal makes it eligibile for 6 months 0% interest downpayment...so you can stagger your payment to paypal in 6 months) PS: I just noticed @lingx2 ahd already posted the link too
  9. The English version of yes24 is helpful though, a lot easier to navigate and you can use paypal. In the korean version i used to be able to pay via an international card but I can no longer add an international card successfully. Let's see in the next 2 weeks, maybe they'll finally get back to their senses and listen to fans.
  10. I just used google translate to get the gist of what the supplier posted (for some reason i am having a hard time copying the actual text from the cafe so I can put it here for someone to properly translate). This is just my opinion...the distributor (and perhaps the promo team is at a mercy of the distributor too) got a bit greedy thinking thst the drama was so popular that a lot of fans would take the bait. That to me would explain why would they go for BluRay only and not consider DVD (aka more ROI for BluRay) and possibly they wanted to strike while the drama is still hot so they went for just premium edition and not wait for the PD and crew to get back from vacation ( i posted a suggestion on delaying the production until the PD and crew are back from bali. Someone just agreed with me but no comment from the admins). Also, the way that jtbc had all those making films and bts makes me think that they are READY for a Director's cut. Those are not just for upload to the official channels but its a conscious effort on the drama crew. Based on how things are right now here's I think what will happen (or what I am hoping will happen). The distributor and promo team will eventually give in and make adjustments (re: offer DVD, extend preorder period, talk with PD for a Director's cut). That's really the only way they can get something out of it. Otherwise, just cancelling the entire promo will just be one big waste of effort for them.
  11. Hi Avengers, It's your friendly cafe.daum messenger with ummm not so good news The actual pre-order count just 179 as of April 25. This is a lot smaller vs the survey which had both DVD and BluRay at 900-1000. I honestly think that this was bc the promo team decided to go by BluRay instead of DVD. Some cafe members are also questioning how that decision was made given that in the Naver survey there were more counts for DVD vs BluRay. The promo team is trying to actively promote bc its still the same situation, if BluRay production is cancelled they won't even look into dvd option. I asked as well if and when the DVD is offered can I (as a BluRay buyer switch to DVD) and the admin said I can (though there are no details yet on how). Anyways, it's just the 1st week, maybe others are waiting for payday to order. They did say they might talk to the production crew (i assume including director) but not until the 8th.
  12. Director's cut is generally an extended version of the drama. The director will re edit the drama and insert the deleted scenes for each episode. Premium version means for the episodes themselves, they will be the same as what was broadcasted. They will edit to make picture clearer, remove logos, make bgm softer etc. In a nutshell the difference is really on the 16 episodes. The extras (NGs, making, etc) are usually included in both a director's cut or premium version (they are on separate discs). Right now the extras are not yet finalized, they will probably announce the final contents/extras after the preorder period.
  13. Hi guys, Update from the cafe. Key dates: May 9 - end of pre order for BluRay Promo team will then check if there are enough orders. If there are enough orders... May 10 - promo team will announce when the release date of the BluRay is May 12 - DVD premium version may be open for ordering. If this becomes available, base price is ₩121,000 It looks like it will really be a premium version only and not director's cut. About the subtitles, one of the admins told me that it's not going to be easy (i hope they will still have subs, praying and hoping...)
  14. Hi guys, I still can't get over DBS, I'm gonna rewatch it again one episode per day (bc real life is calling and I can't afford a marathon LoL). I think he really does like someone who is strong willed and knows exactly waht she wants. In Romantic Idol way back in early 2013 (I think) he was really so smittened with 4minute Nam Ji Hyun. It was a sort of scripted show (aka the missions are set but what they do for each mission is up to them). JH is also older than him and well very strong willed. His reactions are too cute for the recent interviews. I think he genuinely likes PBY (unlike his previous dramas where it was really just about work) but at the same time he also knows it may not be the right timing. He's definitely on the rise and really glad on his decision to join UAA. Judging by the works done by YAI, he's bound to get good roles.
  15. I was able to order Doctors and W from the Yes24 korean site with my International Credit Card a few months ago so its strange that I can't now. Well, at least with PayPal its installment basis even if its a bit more expensive than the Korean site.
