The Handmaiden Bluray [PA Ver]

Took them only about a month to arrive but hey, all good things are worth waiting for, right?

So then, how is the best ever version of the Blurays you will ever get for the Handmaiden? Well, it could have been better, way better, by first of all including an English version of the storyboard and finally adding in the script too. But really, it is still the best version of The Handmaiden you will ever get…until Plain Archive does the thing it does with big titles where they keep releasing better versions that is!

Kind of hurts though that the storyboard, the COMPLETE storyboard, was only in Korean! It’s kind of like a cave man being given 2 billion bucks! He has it but it is kind of no value to him! Okay, maybe crude comparison and while I don’t understand a lick of written Korean, there are still illustrations that tell the story anyway and I great value in it!

Kind of surprised though that almost every scene in the storyboard is in the movie – the extended version of course. I guess there really was no 3 hour version of the movie. 

Anyway, I bought the mega pack which contained all three variations of the release! The first one is this one that contains the holy bible of the movie, aka, the complete storyboard! The discs are encased in a really awesome looking steel-book! The outer cover of which has Hideko chasing Sook-hee out of her room (after slapping her).

The second one also has the discs enclosed in the same styled steel-book but instead of the storyboard, it has a collection of covers and posters from all corners of the world. There is really some creative covers in there!

The last one of the pack is a fold-in casing which is also not to sneeze at! These pictures do not do the actual products justice as I took them at night inside with unnatural light. It has a small booklet with photos and a review from Time Magazine by Stephanie. The cover of the booklet looks really elegant with its golden patterns!

As for the data itself, there are three discs in each version; The Theatrical Cut, The Extended Cut and The Extra Features! The extras are a cool 141 minutes, which is almost the same length of the movie itself, and I am of course talking about The Extended Cut! Best believe it I am about to watch it and see what more I can get from this already bestest lesbian movie in existence!

So, the Korean version of The Handmaiden released as the 3Disc DVD set had a special photobook that was completely different from the one that was sold separately and released Q3 last year.

Though I guess the last one was less about was we would expect from a PB because it was more like some tid-bit info on locations and such about the movie from the director himself. This one is the one you would expect and while I was a little disappointed with the first one, this was took all my disappointments away because it is so good. It has both photos of scenes from the movie and those you haven’t seen too.

And don’t get me started on that cover! Just when you thought this movie couldn’t possibly get any gayer!!! And as such, while I would have a bunch of pics here before the jump, this time the cover deserves all the attention because it is that grand! But even with that awesomeness, even as they did not have to, the back cover even goes a step farther by zooming out and showing us the faces of our girls, like anyone had any doubt as to who were these two people holding hands!

Anywho, you can just download the zip from MF or jump ahead and get the ones you want…But before I go, I wish to express the unfairness of it all that Kim Min-hee did not get all the awards possible for her lead role in The Handmaiden! Seriously, she was beyond acting in this movie. if you have seen her previous roles and know her true personality, you have to realise what an incredible job she did as Izumi Hideko! Seriously, so sad and so unfair!

Beautiful Small PB is beautiful! Not small as in size but in pages. This is a full A4 sized PB but sadly just like the one from Mille fuille, this is a 40p one. It is to be expected of course seeing as they are sold along with the CDs and usually you get little booklets with those.

If only other groups followed this trend as well. CDs would be flying off the shelves, especially those theatre editions that don’t have DVDs with them.

Anyway, this time around there was a lack of yuri but I guess it is to balance out things from the Mille fuille PB as, while that had plenty of yuri, the quality was way below average! Like someone was drunk while they took those photos or something. This time we don’t have much yuri but the quality is top class! I guess what I am trying to say is that I am not complaining. I am not into TGS, they are not my favourite Idol (excusé, former Idol group) just because of the yuri!

Also HitoMiyu, I am disappoint this time around! MeiYuri has beaten you in this round! Come on, do something! I can’t believe you let MeiYuri get away with such a killer combo (hand-holding)! Sure they have ‘yuri’ in their ship name but still, you are supposed to be the IT!

Enough talk, jump over for the other few pages of these lovely girls women. Hiichan, the youngest has already graduated from High School, like, how time flies!

To the Nationals!

Here be those pics from the small booklet that came with the Saki boxset I got a few days back. Speaking of which, it has four episodes, the ones that aired in December, which are kind of a prologue to the series come Feb. I say prologue but they are essentially the TV episodes up to the training camp in the show.

Of course that talk is for the actual episode posts but anyway, have some pics to those that are interested in knowing the girls a bit before the show commences next month.

I am so ready for this drama! Still blown away by this perfect casting! Anyway, see ya around…

Thank you blessed Avex and Co. We do not deserve your love but you keep on giving and giving! Thank you!

Such a small thing this PB is yet so awesome! I say small but only in the terms of the number of pages we got (at just over 30) but the size of the pages was A4!! I ain’t even mad at the poor quality of the photos, it was even probably on purpose! I am just so happy that once again they throw us fans a bone!

If only other Idol production companies followed your example! Know what your fans want (ship) and give them it! We got the ships we love in HitoMiyu and MeiYuri and even some crack yaoi in MiYuri and the inevitable threesome in HitoMiyuMei (Someone in Management ships MiyuMei hard).

It is so little a thing but oh so sweet! Indeed, great things come in small packages! Really, favourite JPop Group right here Ladies and gentlemen! And as promised, jump over ahead for the scans.
