Seen in Jeonju

New DVD Releases: April 8-14

7th April 2012

There are four Korean films being released on DVD this week.  Three of them are films that I must own for my collection and will be sending in an order later in the week. I will be passing on Love On-Air, but it is a matter of personal taste more than anything else. I have to wonder though, why was Love On-Air given a 2-disc treatment when it was seen by less than a million people during its theatrical run while Spellbound, seen by more than 3 times that number, is only being released in a basic, 1-disc package.
