This review is from: The Great Queen Seondeok Vol. 1 (DVD)
Queen Seon Deok is a captivating historical drama. The quality of MBC America's box sets is lacking though. Be sure to check the bottoms of your discs once you receive because many are filled with scratches. Boxes 2 and 3 have discs laying on top of each other in a digipak case, and these discs come out of their holders during shipment and end up rolling around in the box. Box 1 has plastic clips on the sides that hold the discs in place, and there are scratches on the bottom because of that. So be sure you are able to play your discs before the return period is up. I had to get a replacement 2-3 times. Also the info on Amazon should be updated, these only have English subtitles (no Spanish).
I guess MBC doesn't care about the quality of their items for Region 1. The packaging looks pretty, but it does not serve the basic function of holding all discs safely. The Korean Region 3 release has normal DVD cases like movies and I doubt they give those local customers scratched up DVDs. 5 stars for the show itself, a generous 2 stars for these box sets... I ended up ordering the Region 3 set from Korea and will eventually sell off the ones from MBC America. You even get a bonus disc in the R3 Korean set with extras like outtakes, etc...which are always fun to watch.
