  5. for some reason… i think the teaser sounded cooler T__T

    regardless, thanks for the yesasia links!

    btw, sooyoonyul pics have been updated!!! 😀

  6. hh says:

    Would CD shops provide pre-orders? like HMV?

  7. tiff says:

    from waving lollipops to guns and arrows.. TT_TT *proud*

  8. YJ says:

    heyy is the one in Gmarket 1st press?

  9. Maverick says:

    Hello,just thought I would update you that the album name is Shoot,there was an error with the Korean name initially!

  10. sophia says:

    Hi would like to ask out of all the ebay seller links with cd and tubed poster which one has the best quality in shipping product in terms of no dents and secured packaging for the cd and poster. Especially the poster…Thanks!

  11. iced_tea says:

    sophia – i’ve only ordered from grapemusiccd out of all those listed sellers. if you don’t instruct him to ship posters in very hard tubes he will ship in a normal tube which can get dented. i leave a message telling him to ship posters in a very hard tube which he does 🙂 cds are packaged very safely.

    YJ – i am assuming all sellers are stocking first press right now. this is the edition first released anyways.

    Maverick – thanks for telling us! however we’re waiting for an official confirmation ^^

  12. =_= says:

    can anyone tell me the best site to preorder the album???

    • iced_tea says:

      YesAsia and DVDHeaven are reliable sellers. grapemusiccd is an extremely good ebay seller based on my experience. i haven’t ordered from the other ebay sellers before but their feedback scores are high.

  13. YJ says:

    Thanks lot for ur reply~ i think it is too 🙂

  14. west says:

    Grapemusicland says theyre giving a free gift too on their listings

  15. Abie says:

    I’m still confused whether I go with YesAsia or DVDHeaven..
    I always go with YesAsia, never with dvdheaven..
    but dvdheaven got the poster included..
    yet dvdheaven got the shipping costs much higher..
    And i dont know which type of tube dvdheaven uses,
    if it uses the normal one, then the posters will be dented right??
    Could anyone give me suggestions??
    Appreciate it s much 😀

    • iced_tea says:

      For me DVDHeaven usually ships the tube with the cd. So I get a box with my cds and then the tube is also inside.
      Otherwise they use very hard tubes. Onec they did not ship with tube and my posters got damaged but I contacted them and they sent new ones straight away.
      For shipping cost by buying more items with DVDHeaven in one order, I guess shipping per item will decrease.

  16. Tricia says:

    Anyone knows if the album sold at Gmarket comes with the special gift? It’s all in Korean and I’m fail in it.. so.. =/

  17. addy_ami says:

    no prob..
    btw is it true that the new gmarket link that you put give poster in tube too??
    I ask the seller but still no reply.

    btw the shipping is not just 2500 won.
    2500 won is just shipping from seller to gmarket.
    from gmarket to buyer not included yet and it varies base on weight and country

  18. Tricia says:

    I can’t reply..lols.


    Yupps, the poster is included. The title said ‘추가포토카드+포스터+지관’ which means ‘Special Photocard + Poster + Tube for poster’. =)

  19. mel says:

    there is a tutorial for how to buy music off Naver in the soshified tutorials section!

  20. annoymous says:

    is there any thread in soshified that we can trade our hoot photocards ?

  21. OMG OMG i CANNOT believe the MV isn’t out yet >_<

    but wow i can't wait to see all the cards~~

  22. koreanheartthrob says:

    Wow the poster is big! hmmmm.. I want it! :L
    But… I don’t like their costumes! Only Seobaby and YoonA look alright >_>
    Oh wells, still love them! 🙂

  23. omg now i have to get 18 cards. ggaaahhhh hurry up ebay sellers hurry!

  24. ityp says:

    I bought 4 copies of the album from this link: http://english.gmarket.co.kr/challenge/neo_goods/goods.asp?goodscode=196647967

    Just received it today. Opened all of them, but I only received 3 cards out of the 4 I’m supposed to receive. I just emailed the seller, waiting for a response. =)

  25. ityp says:

    Just got a response, but they said it’s impossible DD: Sigh, should I tell my mom? She’ll make a big fuss over it though…

  26. Greyfox says:

    So has anyone that ordered this got the poster with it? I got mine today from a little korean store in my city in Australia. It has the sticker/stickers and the photocard, (I have Jessicas card):P. But it didnt have any poster. Its still great but would have been even better with a girls generation poster on my wall:P

    • Kenneth says:

      Really ?! Which Australian city and what’s the name of the store ? Thanks :D.

      • Greyfox says:

        Hello! Yes in Perth Australia there is a little Korean store in the city centre called ‘Morning Glory’, its in the ‘Carillion City’ part… They started selling Korean CDs soon after the ‘Oh’ album came out, so I got that from there aswell… Now we just need a place selling some Japanese music and we are set! Perfume FTW:P

  27. Rebecca says:

    Is 19522430 still an eBay seller? I can’t find him/her.

    I own Hoot, but I’m trying to collect some more of the cards (but need the cheapest copies possible :p)
