Editorial Reviews

Once outside the mainstream American music spotlight, K-pop is now a sensation not only on the U.S. scene but globally, led by such enormously popular acts as SMTOWN superstars KANGTA, BoA, TVXQ!, Super Junior, Girls Generation, SHINee and f(x). Included in I AM: SMTOWN Live at Madison Square Garden is the full-length (2 hours 45 min.), sold-out 2011 U.S. concert at one of the world s most-hallowed arenas and a feature-length documentary highlighted by exclusive, backstage footage. I AM: SMTOWN ventures behind the scenes, providing intimate and unprecedented access to these mega-hit acts doe-eyed girl groups, high-octane boy bands, provocative solo artists and swaggering duos sharing their personal memories and backstage antics, as well as never-before-seen peeks at youthful audition tapes. Pulling influences from techno, hip-hop, rap, R&B and top-40, the I AM: SMTOWN U.S. tour is highlighted by effervescent music; high-energy performances with a dance pop sensibility; teasing choreography; trend-setting high fashion; and elaborate, futuristic staging. A must for any fan! And if you haven t already been hit by hallyu (Korean wave, a term coined to describe the rapidly expanding, international popularity of South Korean culture and food), you will be after experiencing the no-boundaries music of SMTOWN.

I absolutely do NOT regret buying this. I loved everything about it (SHINee ~ <3) It was well worth the money considering all that you are getting. I only gave it 4 stars because of the condition I got it in. When i opened my package, part of the outer box was ripped in a few places T.T and one of the DVD's had a slight crack in them, but the DVD still ran fine. I still highly recommend this if you like any artist form SM, or if you are new to the KPOP world, because this will surely bring you more into it.

I AM: SMTOWN Live at MSG is a must have for any SONE, ELF, Shawol, Cassie, EXOtic, and Kangta and BoA (stans) supporters. This documentary was well made and for $25 or $12, it is a steal. The DVD costs the same as my movie ticket when I saw a special screening of I AM in LA. The picture quality is superb and the 5.1 Surround takes you there at MSG. Much better audio reproduction than the actual SMTOWN III '12 at the Honda Center. You can hear all of the fangirl screams and Manchants all around you. I was quite surprised when the Blu-Ray was 2-discs. This comes with 100% English Subtitles in the film as well as in the Special Features. The subtitle text is really clear, nice, sharp, and just the right size. Much better than the Japanese Edition subs.

Best performance was Ring Ding Dong and Replay both by SHINEee. Hands down. This coming from a SONE's perspective. You know it's a spectacular SMTOWN if there's "Replay" unlike the one in Anaheim. And you already know it's a worthy purchase if it's a superb SMTOWN.

There's a nice little feature of 5 mins. showing the idols' brief experiences in NYC. Plus a director's cut of DBSK's story.

My main gripe was the packaging and the exclusion of The Dance Break, Tik Tok by JessKrys, and the Way Back Into Love duet by Seobb and Kyuhyun aka 2Hyun (OTP). The Blu-Ray case is the cheapo kind you get with CoD:MW2 for a more "eco-friendly" package. However, the DVD was packaged nicely. All 4 discs shining in all that pink "SMTOWN" glory. As for the exclusion of all those awesome performances, it is no big deal but I think licensing rights for those songs are expensive.
Overall, it is a must buy for any SMTOWN fan and K-popper even though you got a non-SMe bias.

I have recently gotten into k-pop over the past year and was so excited to hear that SMTOWN was coming out with a movie about the k-pop idols from when they were trainees and the concert that happened at Madison Square Gardens. Its really a great buy.

Honestly, I was expecting this to be lame but after watching it the first time, I fell in love with it and I watch two more times. Buy it. You won't be disappointed.

This documentary was interesting to me as someone who was just beginning to listen to Kpop when I saw it theatrically in July 2012. There are a lot of performers profiled, it helps to know at least a little bit about SNSD or TVXQ (or watch with someone who does). The subtitles on the dvd were good and the bonus concert footage was entertaining.

Americans should take notice of these hard-working Korean performers. The music is great. This project was very well done. The documentary and interviews provided background on the boy and girl groups and helped you to realize how hard the individuals worked to become successful. The great thing is that I now know the names of the group members so that I can identify them when I see other MVs, making the viewing or listening more enjoyable.

I've been listening to KPOP music for a few years now & this was a good find to me. I can't find a lot of concerts for my favorite singers online, so I'm glad I found this. This is an awesome concert & the bonus features are great. I wish I could've gone to this concert for myself.

Rating?
There's no cursing in the subtitles or inappropriate references.
The concert is pretty much all singing, some of the dance moves and lyrics aren't for little kiddies, but there's much worse concerts out there. I would give it a PG rating.

Does it have English Sub?
While I couldn't find anything "official", I found some of these DVDs on eBay, with photos of the products' backside.

Does this come with anything else?
I'm not sure if this Amazon edition comes with anything extra, but the info for this product at YesAsia (and here as well) would seem to indicate that it doesn't have English subs.
