K-dramas On Dvds - Oh For The Love Of Boxsets!

offtopic: KBS usually have great subs, like in Sweet 18, but i was a bit disappointed with Full House's though. anyone here got MISA? were they good subs?

i'm thinking about buying Fashion 70s too ... but yes it's sooooo expensive. *sighs*

^I bought MISA from YesAsia...the subs are awesome! the only mistake was when, gosh...i don't remember her name...the girl who's supposidly his girlfriend or wife in Australia...when she's speaking english, the wording in the subtitles are different from what she's actually saying....but, that's no biggie cause you either understand her or the subtitles. and, BITWIN is excellent at english subbing...the only one that was disappointing was Full House, only cause i think they rushed to release it.

and, with everyone saying the subs for Happy Together being horrible... reviews for Love Story in Harvard also mentioned that the subs for that one is bad too. so, i guess SBS' subtitling haven't been so great in last few dramas they've released. All In and Lovers In Paris were good though. I really wanna get Fashion 70s, but what if the subbing is bad like the last two they're released? guess i'll just wait for more reviews. SBS should just let YesAsia do their subbing, like with What Happened In Bali and Spring Days.

thanks angelxsmile :) minor typos are acceptable anyway. as long as the grammar is correct - i'd be fine with it.

i didn't know that the subs for LSIH were bad. that's just horrible. good point about Fashion 70s. hopefully someone who purchased the DVD could post his/her opinion about the subs here.

The English subs for Full House are okay, not pull-your-hair-out bad. The first few episodes have more mistakes but on the whole the subs are decent. The extra features are super, more than 2 hours worth of goodies. The packaging is gorgeous.

The Sang Doo set has very good subs. Quite excellent actually. I love this set because it comes with the OST (one of my favorites) and lots of extras. The NGs are among the best I've seen; they are really funny. This set also has character descriptions in English inside the box and lots of cute pics.

However, Tib's sister is opposed to the match, as she was hurt by a Korean man in the past, and so persuades her Tib to break off the relationship.

Eun Woo returns to Korea broken hearted, only for his older brother Sok Woo (Lee Won Jong) to head off to Vietnam in search of a bride himself. But when he returns with a young woman on his arm, Eun Woo is horrified to discover that it is Tib!

^no...YesAsia Global will NOT ship items off their global site to North America and Canada residents.

i had to import the Loveholic drama set (KBS release) from another site located in Korea. shipping costs is a lot more...but the item arrives within a week from when order is placed!

^ i doubt it. once you enter your US address, the global site will probably redirect you to Yesasia's North America site.

you don't want to order from KBS america? if not, maybe you could also try http://www.dvdfromkorea.com/ :)

:( Thanks Chula, I was hoping that wasn't the case but it's so...thanks so much for the link, I din't know they existed....do u have any idea if they are trying to settle this anytime soon? it's too bad that this happen....I definitely want to get a copy of Wedding when it comes out....thanks again :)

KBS-America have finally added 18 vs 29 to their e-store collection!!

been waiting for this one all year!! :)

I've been waiting myself...and I just ordered my own set today =)

Did you also see that it say "sold out (avail in 2 weeks)" when you saw it? But it lets you order, so I'm guessing either it got completely sold out and will be again avail in 2 weeks, but u can order away so they can immediately ship to you once they have it in stock again, or it won't be really out till 2 weeks from now and they're allowing pre-ordering right now.

^i emailed them if they'll have 18 vs 29 any time soon (since all the other sites i've been to were sold out or didn't have it) and received an email back from KBS-America...saying, it was out of stock...but have just put in an order to get more. so, we can go ahead and preorder since they expect to have more in stock within the next two weeks.
