Not long ago an article was written regarding the highly anticipated Big Bang Big Show 2011 DVD. The only problem was the information given was for the Japanese version. There hadn’t been news regarding the Korean version of the DVD, which many had found odd. Why would they release a Japanese edition before the Korean edition? It would make sense for them to release the “Love and Hope DVD” in Japan before they did in Korea since it was a Japanese concert. Anyway, all speculation can be put aside since now VIPs won’t have to wait much longer!
The Korean version is slightly different than the Japanese counterpart. For one, in the Japanese edition there are three discs, whereas the Korean version will have just two. Not to worry, “Secret Big Bang” along with the multi-angle function will be available in this edition as well. The three disc Japan DVD set would cost an arm and a leg, as it is said to be going for close to $100 and that’s not even including shipping for those fans who live overseas. The Korean DVD will feature Korean and English language subtitles which the Japanese DVD may not. On the other hand the Korean edition is much more reasonable as for the asking price being 29,700원, which is approximately $27.00, according to the YGeShop.
What else does the Korean version entail? Let’s start off by having a look at the track list, shall we?
