Upcoming Korean & SE gift/box sets?

Is there a good place (other than this wonderful forum of course) that lists info on upcoming gift/collector/box sets being released?

I keep stumbling across excellent boxed sets (Band of Brothers Korean for example) and would love to know if and when upcoming ones are coming out.

You can check these sites. They're all in Korean but they hall have pictures. It all the upcoming movies that will come out in the next couple of months. They show all DVDs so it's exactly what you asked for, but it's better than nothing. If you see MBC or SBS, it's a TV show.

You can use babelfish to translate, however it isn't too accurate.

It does say that it only has Korean subtitles though.

I mentioned this on the Ring thread. It's not on Bitwin's site because it's an old release, just a new printing. If you don't understand Korean or Japanese, then think really hard about buying it because there are no English subs. I would've bought it 8 months ago if it weren't for that.

Babelfish, by the way, has a lot of trouble with Korean. One word can have up to 5 or 6 meanings, which, of course, the search engine can't often handle.

Any more info needed? I'm thinking about picking this up and I can tell you whatever you want.

Well I was only interested in if it had English subs. I saw a set on Ebay that stated it had English subs, I emailed the seller asking if it was a bootleg and never heard back from them.
Not to completely hijack this thread but I did pick up the Ring TV series off of ebay. The cover looks like it was printed from a computer but as I was looking at the DVD's they said Ring 1 and Ring 2 on the inner-ring of the disc. I haven't watched them yet to see how good the picture or subs are.

I wouldn't discuss this any further since they are bootlegs. Discussion about quality of bootlegs is not allowed here.

Thanks for those links Pat. After spending a few minutes trying to get babelfish to work, I came back here and noticed you're 2nd post.

I'll keep checking the sites above to see if anything new and exciting is coming out!
