Trying to decide what Korean DVD to buy next

I am ordering some DVD's from Yes Asia and I need to order a third DVD to get my free DVD of love bakery. I am trying to decide what to order and was checking if anyone can recommend any of the dvd's I have listed below.

Samaria
Spy Girl
Romantic Warriors
Please Teach me English
Spring bears love

also does anyone know where I can get a copy of "My Love Ssagajy : 100 Days with Mr. Arrogant Limited Edition" it seems to have gone out of print and there is no regular release of it that I can find. I dont care if I get a regular or limited edition DVD.

I liked Romantic Warriors so I'd reccomend that one personally. Not a great movie but still a lot of fun. Not on your list but I would also reccomend Mr. Handy and Oldboy.

I am ordering mr Handy on the same order, but I am going to wait on Oldboy. I loved Sympathy for Mister Vengeance but I am not in the mood for another revenge movie like sympathy. I will probably order Oldboy on a future order.

Out of your list, I would probably get Samaria or PLease Teach Me English. I really liked Samaria. I thought it was really well done, but the subject covered in this movie may not be appropriate for some people. Make sure you know what you are getting into, but other than that it's a really good movie. I also liked PTME, but I thought it was about 20 minutes too long. Certain scenes could have been cut, cause they weren't really relavant to advancing the story.

I would avoid Romantic Warriors, unless you like sexual slapstick comedy. I did not find this movie to be funny at all, and I would consider it to be the worst movie that I have ever seen.

I haven't seen the rest, but I have read that Spy Girl and 100 days weren't that great.

If you really want it, you could find 100 days with Mr. Arrogant, here.

Thanks for the info. Samaria and PTME sound good.

I liked Sex is Zero and heard Romantic assassins was done by the same people so I might give it a try on a later order.

I'm debating whether to buy Old Boy or not. There's a pretty nifty LE coming in about 5 or 6 months. Maybe you can wait then.

If you want romantic comedies, try Don't Believe Her. Haven't seen it but it's along the same lines as Mr. Arrogant. If you buy Spy Girl, and you don't have My Wife is a Ganster, then you should probably pick that up.

The best movie of the bunch is probably Samaria, but if the Spring Bears Love DVD is the LE, you can pick that one up instead.

I just finished watching Mr. Handy and thought it was pretty good. Not high-art or anything, but it was very enjoyable.
The same thing goes for Please Teach Me English, My Tutor Friend and The Classic.
All of these have pretty nice packaging too.
