Other Stuff, Seoul: 15 reviews and 15 photos

Ok, it happened...maybe. Last night bought a few DVDs with a friend from a seller on the side of the road. He was previewing some of the disks and chatting us up to buy something, but the ones I bought we did not preview. Got back to my PC, put the DVD in the slot...nothing. One of them has the 'grooves' that a recording would leave, the other was pure as the driven snow...both had nothing on them (according to the D: drive directory). Still have to check them out on an actual DVD player, but I don't hold out much hope...

Unique Suggestions: There is a lesson here: preview every DVD you buy, just to be sure you're overpaying for a blank disk (which you can get for a couple of won inside the market area).

Fun Alternatives: Download from the net...it's free and easy (but takes time and may have viruses) but at least you don't pay to get nothing.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
