Fantasy Couple/Couple or Trouble/Couple in Trouble


Whatever you call it, the show is the same. Slippery title aside, this is a gem.

It is now available on E-Bay, where you're likely to get burned on the price due to auction fever and shipping cost, HK Flix, where you'll get the best deal, YesAsia, or Amazon.com.

This is a Region 0 (all region) version. Good for you MBC, now you're cookin' with gas. (This has been corrected. The post originally stated the set is region 1. My aploigies. To those in the know...Mercury is Retrograde.)

E-Bay? Anybody's guess. (NOTE:Auction ended at $72.00 + $7.25 postage. A whopping savings of .70 below HK Flix, without the safty of a real live company guarantee (seller did promise to replace defective discs).
Hk Flix: $79.95 + Free Shipping in U.S. PRICE CHANGE: $80.95 + Free Shipping U.S.
YesAsia: $89.99 + Probably Free Shipping globally.
Amazon: $99.99 + Free Shipping PRICE CHANGE: $89.99 + Free Shipping
Easiest returns for defective merchandise: Amazon
Unless your brain is sleeping, you know I recommend HK Flix.

In addition to giving the best price this time around, they are wonderful to deal with. They stand behind their products, sell very good all-region DVD equipment, are friendly and helpful, and have an incredible DVD inventory covering everything imaginable. They're the apple of my eye.

Other perks available are the informative newsletter currently offering a 5 day long 10% discount on ALL DVD's by clicking a link in the letter, by the way. They also give a few Flix Bux for customer reviews they post. Flix Bux are handy to put toward future shipping, or a DVD you might want. And they do add up.

I want to point out here, my comments re E-Bay are not a slam against them or their sellers. BUT, I do feel a lot safer buying from people I've come to know and trust. like HK Flix. I have had fairly extensive communication with them, and you do get to know each other that way.

They keep the customer informed about the status of an order, they pack shipments like the professionals they are, and they ship quickly for the most part. I've never waited weeks for a package as I have at times through other sources.

I buy wherever I get the best deal. I'm not a blind follower. But common sense tends to be the deciding factor in most of my dealings online. Common sense dictates HK Flix is the best place for buying Fantasy Couple.

Check out their inventory, and their comments regarding some of the things they sell. At times these people are so brutally honest and funny, they completely crack me up. I love funny smart people.

Go shop. ;)

A few words regarding the Bloodhound of the Universe, Linda A. of New York. The photo of September 5, 2007, which is labeled as "locale unknown", was ID'ed by Linda as coming from the set of A Second Proposal. The fence surrounding the swimming pool was her clue. Good work Linda, you go girl! Thanks a million.

My face is red...

Earlier this week I set up a poll at the Oh Ji Ho Int'l Fan Club. Then I sent a letter to members with the wrong address in the link. They wound up here...no poll. All is well that ends well. The poll is directly to your right.

The poll is not restricted to members of the OJHIFC. All are welcome to vote. The question regards the way Zio dresses. Do you prefer him dressed casually as the photo below shows,

or, do you prefer him in more formal clothing, as below? The formal photo was sent by club member Linda A. from New York. Thanks again Linda.

Oh Ji Ho - One of those moments.

I love photos of people when they're caught unaware in a situation like this. The lady's heel is caught in the hem of her gown. It's a beautiful picture. They are beautiful.

Dedicated to Colleen Chun. Feel better. I'm thinking of you.

Oh Ji Ho makes a damp entry.

It was a bit wet when Oh Ji Ho arrived at the Pusan International Film Festival, but that didn't stop him from making a good appearance.

Dear viewers,

Hi out there! I have a few things to cover.

1. This is long overdue:A young woman named Mailyn has a fanlisting page dedicated to Oh Ji Ho. She has been kind enough to put a link at that site back to this one. Thank you very much Mailyn. I appreciate your kindness and generosity.

I think it would be a nice idea for a lot of people to support her effort, and in that, also support Oh Ji Ho. This is the link to the site. The Oh Ji Ho Fanlisting

Mailyn puts a beautiful page together. You'll enjoy seeing it. Please sign up. There is no obligation, and no money involved.

2. A person from Vietnam left a comment. I am not publishing it because I will not publish any email addresses (for your protection). Thank you very much for your note. I hope you will continue to visit. You are always welcome.

3. An anonymous person left a message asking why Oh Ji Ho does not answer messages. This is a site run by me, Hyacinth, for fans and people who are interested in Oh Ji Ho. He does not visit this site. Sorry.

That's it for the moment. Thanks for dropping by,
