Secret Garden

Secret Garden DVD Set

Winner of Best Drama at the 47th Baeksang Arts Awards, fantasy romance Secret Garden is the hottest Korean TV drama series of 2011. The topsy-turvy love story turns the modern fairytale romance on its head with hilariously eccentric characters, body swapping, and an emotional roller coaster that will have you laughing and crying the whole way through!

Gil Ra-im (Ha Ji-Won, Damo) is a tough and disciplined stuntwoman with a soft heart. Kim Joo-won (Hyun Bin, My Lovely Sam-Soon) is a nitpicky CEO with a long list of complexes. Lovestruck from the moment he meets her, Joo-won barges into Ra-im's life in all the wrong ways, trying to make sense of his illogical feelings. The more they fight, the more attracted they are to each other, but there's no Cinderella ending in sight for this feuding couple. Ra-im and Joo-won's differences seem irreconcilable until they wake up one morning in each other's bodies!



Sungkyunkwan Scandal

Sungkyunkwan Scandal DVD Set

Set during the 18th century when Korea was still known as "Josun," Sungkyunkwan Scandal is the latest historical Korean TV drama series to delight audiences worldwide.

Sungkyunkwan, Josun's most prestigious school, has its own set of rigid rules (e.g. no girls!) that even the king can't touch. But that's all about to change because of four very special students! Kim Yoon-hee is a super smart girl, but she was born in an era when women were forbidden to study. To help support her grief-stricken family, she decides to pose as a boy and earn money from lazy scholars by doing their homework. One thing leads to another and she finds herself being accepted to Sungkyunkwan! But will she be able to hide her true identity (and avoid the punishment of death)?

Yoon-hee becomes friends with Lee Sun-joon, an uptight son-of-a-noble who loves following the rules, Moon Jae-shin, a young man who is scarred by his brother's tragic death, and Gu Yong-ha, a free-spirited soul whose life is a bit more complicated than he lets on. These four unlikely friends find themselves embroiled in romantic rivalries, campus politics, and even a top-secret mission to help the king change the course of Korean history!



Mischievous Kiss

Mischievous Kiss DVD Set

Based on the popular Japanese comic Itazura na Kiss - which has sold over 30 million copies worldwide - Mischievous Kiss is an adorable Korean TV drama series that follows in the footsteps of hits like Palace and Boys Over Flowers.

Spunky high school student Hani (Jung So-Min) isn't all that smart. But she's true to her heart and full of dreams... and she happens to be head over heels in love with her school's top student, the handsome genius Seungjo (Kim Hyun-Joong, Boys Over Flowers, boyband SS501). Hani gathers up the courage to confess her love, but cold, arrogant, and heartless Seungjo flatly rejects her and embarrasses her in front of the whole school. And if that wasn't enough, a string of unfortunate events forces Hani and her family to move in with her father's old childhood friend - who is none other than Seungjo's father! All kinds of romantic sparks and misadventures await now that Hani is living under the same roof as Seungjo!



My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

My Girlfriend is a Gumiho DVD Set

In Korean mythology, a "gumiho" is a nine-tailed fox spirit (and a shape-shifter that usually appears in the guise of a woman) with magical powers and an appetite for human organs.

Wannabe movie star Dae-woong (Lee Seung-Gi, Brilliant Legacy) learns that a gumiho isn't so evil after all when he accidentally frees 500-year-old Mi-ho (Shin Min-Ah) into the human world. Naive, inquisitive, and beautiful, Mi-ho just wants to hang out with Dae-woong and eat beef every day, bringing barrels of unexpected troubles into his life. Mi-ho learns of a way to become human from a mysterious hunter named Dong-joo (Noh Min-Woo). But what Mi-ho doesn't know is that her dream of becoming human could end up killing Dae-woong.

A modern love story steeped in ancient folklore, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho is the latest must-see Korean TV drama from the creators of You're Beautiful and My Girl.



49 Days

49 Days DVD Set

Shin Ji Hyun was enjoying absolute bliss as she was about to marry her fiancé, Kang Min Ho, but her perfect life is shattered when she gets into a car accident that leaves her in a coma. She is given a second chance at life by a reaper, but it comes with a condition: she has to find three people outside of her family who would cry genuine tears for her. In order to do this, she borrows the body of Yi Kyung, a part-time employee at a convenience store for 49 days.
