I am going to try and call my local station here in chicago and see if they are selling the yellow handekerchief with english subtitles. maybe I can buy them this way. has anyone ever tried this. when I get a anwer I will let you know.
I live in Delaware, and watch YH out of Philadelphia. Not sure who to call, but I am very interested in purchasing the tapes with subtitles in Engllish. If you find out where you can purchase them, please let me know.
I was thinking they might not be for sale yet since the YH just ended a short time ago in several states. I am still watching it in Philadelphia.
I loved Who's My Love also. But if tapes cost that much then I suppose I'll never see my favorites again (unless they do a drama repeat sometime in the future).. Hmm, wonder if they've ever done a repeat? If I win the lottery I would pay $5,000 for Yellow Handkerchief
Maybe the station would sell the Yellow Handkerchief cheaper, if they knew many fans were interested in purchasing this drama.
TONIGHT WAS THE LAST EPISODE OUT OF PHILADELPHIA! I am sad, because this show has become a part of me. I will miss watching the YH every night.
The last episode was good, but I don't think anyone would understand the show unless they had been watching the show from the beginning.
I do not mean the storyline was difficult, but not seeing mother and daughter giving birth, na-young and ki-hoon's wedding, or Sang-min's father involved in funeral, you had to know the personalities of all of these people, or the ending would not have meant much.
The most meaning for me was Sang-min dying at the same time Ja-young was giving birth. It seems you hear about a person dying , and then within hours a baby is born.
There will be a rerun out of Philadelphia, Pa on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week. They will show the last three eposides again. I am happy, but more TORTURE!!!! ....... TO SEE IT END!
Jean, you have just about the oddest posting style of anyone I've ever seen on this board. It seems when you reply to someone, your posting name appears the same as the one you're responding to. Very, very strange...I don't know how that's even possible. Oh well.
I don't think you'd have to watch from the very first ep. to pick up the show and appreciate it. I began watching YH when it was already in episodes in the late 40s or 50s...I forget now. And I liked it and picked it up pretty quick. A lot of people jump into a series or daily drama when it's been running quite a while and become a fan. But I do think w/ YH, it would have done little good coming into it when it was very far along...like the last couple of months. That's just too far and you would miss to much for it to be a really valuable experience.
If I ever hear anything about YH being made available for purchase on VHS or DVD w/ English subtitles, you can bet I will post here for sure to let everyone know. I have a lot of it on tape myself, having saved it, but not from the beginning, and it's also messed up in places...out of sequence and some eps misisng the first or last few mins. So it wouldn't be much for me to offer to make a copy of what I have for you...sorry I can't help.
I wish I knew how to get into the business of getting these Korean drama series on commercial format w/ subtitles...for all the fans I've seen ask about where and how to get them, I know I could make a bundle. Alas, I have no head for such things.
I think it was a fabulous series, and an extraordinary ending... poignant, moving and beautiful. I sure will miss seeing new episodes every day...but I will cherish my recorded copies.
Currently, I'm watching Bodyguard and OMR...they are both ok and have interesting facets to them, but don't compare in my heart to YH. It was a great ride!
I just called KBC (with Galacticchic's help ) and asked if I could buy 2 episodes of YH and was told that they were not available, and will never be available! So there goes that option. So you can't buy from the Chicago station but if any of the other local stations are offering (like LA or Philly) please let us know!
To buy the set, there wouldn't be so many CDs. Each CD can hold up to 800 minutes, that would be about 26 episodes, so technically, you'll get about 6-7 CDs. Yes, they might cost somewhere between the range of $20-$30. If we're lucky, we might get some reruns of the drama from START to FINISH . Well, Humble, I hope you find what you [and probably everyone else in this forum board] want. If you do, I would really like to know how much it is and where to get them. xP Thanks!
aYsHuN, do you mean Video CDs, or DVDs? I have never seen a Video CD, but I can't imagine stuffing 26 episodes into a mere 650 MB and getting anythig close to watchable.
I am archiving my off-air recordings to DVD, and find I can get seven episodes per disc, while still maintaining good quality. The next setting on my recorder would let me record fifteen eps, but the motion is too jerky.
Not sure what you mean about the way I post my answers.
I have enjoyed reading your posts on yelllow handkerchief, and look forward to reading your comments about One Million Roses.
I should have taped the Yellow Handkerchief when I started watching the show, but I never thought I would enjoy it so much, and not want to ever miss an episode. I have learned my lesson, because I am now taping "To Be With You" which is reruning out of WYBE Channel 20 - Monday to Friday, 11:00 to 11:30AM. I hope someday they put the Yellow Handkerchief on as a rerun!!!!!!!!
Jean -- the "posting" problem seems to be something haywire with the software (or maybe you were hitting some odd key that caused the board's software to freak out). In one example above, there was my entry (mikey) followed by your entry, which was also identified as coming from "mikey".
Not a big deal, though. It is just something peculiar.
"To Be With You" is a very good series. Not as good as YH, I have to say, but still a very good series. I think you'll really enjoy it.
I already saw "To Be With You" when it was on TV. The morning show I am now watching is a re-run of this show..
I agree with you that "To Be With You" is not as good as Yellow Handkerchief. It will take a lot for me to enjoy any other Korean drama as much as I did the Yellow Handkerchief. Of course, that is what I said after seeing "To Be With You". I was very sad when TBWY was over, but I didn't know the Yellow Handkerchief would have such great actors/actresses and a fantastic storyline.
This is kind of funny -- the very thing we were just talking about happened again in Jean's last reply...your posting name appeared as "Mikey" --- maybe it's something where when you reply while not logged in as a member, it assigns the name to you of the person to whom you're replying. I don't know...I sure can't figure it out...but mikey is right...it's not a big deal... just kind of funny....and very odd.
Anyway, thanks so much, Jean, for your nice compliments. I'm very pleased to hear you enjoyed some of my commentary on YH. I'm w/ you...I think YH was just the absolute best, and I don't believe I'll ever feel again as excited and enamored w/ any other Korean drama as I was over YH.
I've been watching Bodyguard, which I like a fair amount, and I've been watching One Million Roses. OMR has some good things in it and some characters that seem interesting and/or funny. I think it has potential. But I do admit it hasn't grabbed me the way YH did right from the first day I began watching. I'm going to give it some time yet, but I doubt I'll stick with it if I don't get much more caught up in it in a few weeks than I am currently.
So far, I haven't felt motivated to write much about OMR on the message board for it. Maybe if and when it catches on more with me, I'll have some things to say. The other day, something confusing happened, and I almost posted to ask if anyone could figure out what the deal was. But when I sat down to post, I realized I didn't care enough to put in the effort of making the post. Generally, that's a bad sign.
