    hi just to tell you that hmv has sold out for the genie album again

    • wendyy22 says:

      thank you very much for informing us! 🙂

  2. addy_ami says:

    thank you for sharing!!

    can’t wait for my copies..
    I bought both first press and limited ed..huhu

    btw do you have preview of the external bonus postcard included with the limited ed and regular ed??

    • iced_tea says:

      no we don’t 😦 i haven’t seen any pics around on the net. however HMV Japan says “First Purchasers Novelty: [Postcard] (The design will be same as the Limited Period Edition)]”. Though I do not really understand what they mean by that >_<

      • adila7p says:

        the statement is kinda weird though and I’m afraid that I might not get the postcard so I don’t order it on hmv although the first press I bought from hmv..

        I order it from cdjapan because usually cdjapan stated it clearly about the first press and external bonus stuff.. they even informed how many first press edition is still available for a certain items

  3. Yin Yee says:

    I’m confused about this … Only the regular version is sold in the stores ? What about the 2 limited editions ?

    • iced_tea says:

      No I believe all 3 versions were sold in stores because Japanese SONEs on Twitter managed to buy the Limited Edition (First Press) version the day it was released in Japan.

      If CDJapan states that the external bonus stuff will be inc. then I’m sure you’ll receive it ^^

  4. Ko says:

    Is there anywhere else to buy the first press limited?
    I’m aware of it being sold out at most places but is there not even one website?

    • ofpuddingsncucumbers says:

      eBay’s grapemusiccd recently listed its 5 First Press copies on the 11th. There remains a copy still at this juncture. Hope you’ll secure it(:

  5. oh man…. i MUST get all 9 cards. but how? no one ebay is selling yet T__T

  6. kong says:

    hi is anyone willing to trade
    i have yuri and i am trading for taeyeon
    email me at kongjian3@hotmail.com

  7. gah i am SUCH a sucker. i just ordered 5 more copies from yesasia… good thing because they are ALREADY out of stock >_<

    SM i hate you so much right now.

    • hihi says:

      Hey since you have an extra copy , would you mind selling one of your first press album ?

      • i only have one copy left and it’s currently on hold. if for some reason it doesn’t work out, i’ll be listing it on ebay within a week, so look for it (i use the same name as my ebay id)

        • hihi says:

          Umm, how much can the bids be until ? I dont really want to spent a lot , I was unlucky enough to miss the pre order date alr

          • last time, i sold 4 copies from $35 – $68

            but just to be real honest, i think you’re out of luck if you’re looking for a new copy. SM/universal didn’t print as many ‘genie’ as they did ‘gee’. so if you’re really looking for at least a used copy, i’d look up this thread and PM people who listed more than one card, since that probably means they bought more than one copy

  8. elizabeth says:

    Does anyone have a first press limited edition they are willing to sell me for a reasonable price? i don’t care if there’s no photocard. I just don’t want to have to pay like $80!
    email: elizabeth.daly (at) hotmail (dot) com
