Where to Purchase Films & Dramas

Keep in mind the multiple ways of spelling Woo-Sung's name:  Kam Woo-Sung; Gam Woo-Sung; Kam Woo-Seong; Karm Woo-Seong, etc., when searching for his work.  Also, keep in mind whether your DVD player is capable of playing DVDs from the region from which you are buying the movie; whether the film has the original Korean track, (so you can hear WS's voice), and whether the subtitles are the language you need.  If you haven't bought a multi-regional DVD player, that can play discs from all over the world, you may want to look into that.  Brands like Phillips, and LG, make these machines, some are also multi-regional BluRay players, as well.

 

www.yesasia.com http://www.yesasia.com/us/search/gam-woo-sung/0-0-0-bt.48_q.Gam+Woo>>>sung_bpt.48_vm.32_vn.37-en/list.html

 

www.Amazon.com

www.Ebay.com

www.cdjapan.co.jp/

 

www.hanbooks.com

I've had the best luck with buying from Ebay and Amazon, usually from independent sellers.  Han Books no longer has copies of "Big Bang." I don't know why they still have it listed, as the film is "out of print."  You may run into this often, even at Yes Asia, since much of Woo-sung's work is not so recent.  It *is* frustrating.

Oooh, thanks so much for starting the thread, I'll do my best to contribute, too! (The following info I scammed off Hitman over on the KFCcinema forums. Poor guy does so much work digging up info on upcoming Asian films and is so underappreciated, so I have to give him credit!)

From an upcoming film, English title ?)

okay, I'll stop now, otherwise I'll end up looking for great GWS photos all day!

BTW I've been a fan since his first movie, "Marriage is a Crazy Thing" and have seen almost everything he's done since (still haven't watched yet is "A Bold Family"). The whole appeal of "The King and the Clown" for me was that he played the lead! Great actor!

Thx for creating this thread! I became a fan of his after watching Alone in Love. Man can he act and he had great chemistry with Son Ye Jin. Although he's in his mid 30s, he's still good lookin.

oooh, the GSW thread is in full-swing now I see! happy-happy-joy-joy!!! Thanks for all the pics, homura, you are like a goldmine! the wedding pics are adorable, I didn't realize his wife is an actress (I thought she was a "normal" person!) What has she acted in?

Okay, on to the serious stuff! :P Anyone seen "Spider Forest" who can explain the end to me? (a PM would be cool, don't want to spoil it for everyone else!) I swear, I've watched the movie 3-4 times, it really sucks me in, but I still feel confused by the ending! I *suspect* I know what was going on, but as most reviewers are kind enough to avoid spelling everything out for the reader (which would ruin it) and the movie hasn't been popular enough for me to see other people's interpretations, I'm not really sure …

Han Hye-jin is playing a heroine named Soseono in MBC historical drama "JUMONG".

(JUMONG is now the most popular drama in Korea. Its ratings are over 40%. :) )

She and GWS acted together in "I Love You, Hyunjung" (2002, MBC) though she played a supporting role at that time.

Finally a Woo-Sung thread!

A few months ago, while I was crazy over him all thanks to the Alone in Love craze a while back, I had a field day trying to find his thread here.

And he doesn't even have one!

But not anymore, thank you for starting this thread!

Excellent job on the profile + pictures + his works!

I'll be sure to drop by more often. <3
