Ok, so this isn’t a full video. It’s just a random cool-things-we-see kinda deal. Anyhow, we got the shipment of Limited Edition ZE:A CDs for our giveaway from our Interview with ZE:A. We didn’t think they’d be this big. THEY’RE RIDICULOUS! Seriously yo! They’re almost the size of shoe boxes! I’m used to double albums: fine, I get that, but this comes with ZE:A sunglasses and a ZE:A windmill. Is that some kind of ZE:A inside joke or something? Maybe they ran past windmills on a TV show? I don’t know. I feel so out of the loop. We just wanted to show this off, that’s all.

Long story short: I’m used to all my CDs from Canada having one uniform shape and size. Korean CD packaging is really impressive and really different with every album. This, though, takes the cake for the most interesting CD packaging I’ve ever seen!

Anyhow, you’ve got until Sunday night to enter our contest for these monstrously large CDs. We’ll announce the winner for our upcoming Music Monday! Yay!

  1. a very happy 300,000! Subscribers nasty for life yeah congrants simon and martina

  9. Can I have one ? Just one pleas >.<

  10. omg damnnit fom the thumbnail i thoguth it was SJ’s sfs, awww wish you guys coudl give that away

  11. My favorite part of the Aftermath MV is the Dongjun’s bit from 1:08-1:14 because he’s my favorite member, and he puts such emotion into the lines that he sings. He was also in the beginning of the dance formation in that part. Dongjun has always been one of the better dancers of ZE:A, and he dances the part very powerfully.

  12. ohh I have thin chance to win :p since it will really cost u so much sending it in a very heart of Europe teehee

    I’m in love with Korean CD packaging. I’m a graphic designer and my designer friends and I get together and drool over the packaging when I get CD’s in the mail. I’m personally drooling over the idols as well, but mostly the packaging. BigBang’s graphic standards manual as part of the Monster packaging was like heavens opening up and giving us graphic design nerd porns. I’d love to have that ZE:A CD in my collect. Awesome to listen to, amazing to look at and admire…I want to design Korean CD packaging :_(

    • Their packaging is amazing!!!!! I’m studying to be a graphic designer too and I have one friend in school who is into kpop so whenever we order new cds we get together to exam every bit of it (i wish i could just get them at a mall…to physically hold them before purchasing them..)

      a photo class i had we did cd/record albums and i brought in all my kpop stuff to show my teacher because we were supposed to bring in examples of what we thought were good. and her exact words were ‘i’ve never had such a treasure brought to me before. these are beautiful. the photography, the colors, going beyond just a jewel case, it probably cost so much to make. looking at it makes me want to buy it without knowing what it sounds like’

      • thisisjustforfunval

        I wish so much I had known about Kpop and it’s amazing CD packaging when I was in school. I’m just glad I can share it with my current designer friends/colleagues. I wish they sold them here in the stores as well. I hate waiting close to two weeks to get my CD’s in the mail. Also I always think it is funny that everyone assumes I payed a boat load of money for these CD’s because of the packaging and I’m like “it’s not that much more than a jewel case CD.”

  34. You know, it kinda looks like you have a Pedo Bear on your refrigerator. Only it’s the wrong color and not the real thing. Sorry.
    But to me it really looks like it. /shotshotshot

  35. OMG!!!! That is awesome!!! This is my first time entering a giveaway and I’ve tried to buy cds and posters online (cuz i live in NY) but my parents won’t let me :( If I actually win this giveaway prize, I probably won’t want anything else for Christmas :D Its like opening a box of happiness >.< I really hope I win one of them. But if I don't, congrats to everyone else who do. :)

  36. you just opened a literal box of happiness

  37. When and HOW did you get the SIGNED BIGBANG and 2NE1 CDs?!?!?!? CAN WE SEE THEM PLEASE AND BE EXTRA JEALOUS?!?!?!? I adore K-Pop CDs! They are all so unique!!! Most are like little (or HUGE) pieces of ART~ I collect them. Thanks for sharing this with us. So cool (and jealous!).

  38. How do you sign up for the contest? I have been wondering for a while since you guys havent told us in a while… please reply when you can.

  39. how do we enter this contest ?

  40. how do we enter for this contest ?

  41. Wow! That box is like a Happy Meal for a Kpop lover. Has everything one can dream of!
    Martina looks like a crazy princess from Star Wars, whose name doesn’t pop in my head right now!

  42. Lol, K-Pop CDs are so weirdly entertaining xD But it frustrate me when I try organizing them on my shelf….the shapes and sizes are all so different! The really thin ones get covered by the big ones, but then some stick out too much!

  43. this is actually quite common in other Asian countries/cities like Taiwan and Hong Kong. It’s more like a collection item than really buy a “CD”. I personally never really listen to the CD that comes with the package xD but the only problem is, instead of a regular CD Tower or shelf, I need to buy adjustable bookshelves to hold these limited editions

  44. 제발 내가 받았으면 좋겠따..ㅠㅠㅠ

  45. Woahhh that album is huge. O_O That’s awesome~~~ >.<

  46. how do you enter? i waaaaant!!! <3 <3

  47. Holy cow! Those are huge! Sooo cool though! is it weird I’m stupid excited about those sunglasses?

  48. Actually, I bought the SHINee Limited Box Edition – The First (Japanese), and it is also huge :P
    Basically the same size as the ZE:A Album, but instead, it can with a photobook, the CD and special edition DVD, a Playbutton MP3 Player, and a Calander :D

    The Playbutton still works to this day, and I purchased the album last December :D
    It did cost a FORTUNE to buy and ship over here, but was completely worth it!

  49. How can you win them??????

  50. I got the limited edition version of one of Tomoko Kawase’s (Japanese artist) CD/DVD items, and it was not nearly as cool as this!

  51. Are you allowed to enter the contest more than once?

  52. Lol an I thought Korean CD’s in general were amazing. But that is just awesome! Soooo worth the money to get allllll of that! I’ve only ever ordered regular Cd’s which are still cooler looking than plain american Cd’s.

  53. I have to agree, US and other american cds are all square shapes, sometimes(rarely) they ocme with a photobook, but ever since I bought Kpop cds, I always like buying kpop cds better because the photobook, cd, and overall design always amazes me and wows me. They’re all different, different colors, designs, ways to open it, material. It’s just awesome. I like how kpop companies spend time to figure out that stuff. Because I find it much more worth my $18 for a cool and never boring design on opening my Infinitize cd than a $12 Justin Beiber or Taylor Swift cd.

  54. Woah! That is HUGE! And whuuut? Shades? *awesomes*
    Signed BigBang & 2NE1 CDs *bawls*
    I’m dying of envy now

  55. I was going to say that I have seen a much bigger special edition packaging for a CD, but, y’know, it’s for the upcoming 25th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s BAD album. So… that’s kind of to be expected. xD And I’m gonna get it! D:< (maybe)

  56. OMG! It’s really huge! But after I watch the video, I really really want to have one! I have been answer the question, I wish I’m lucky to have one! :)

  57. I totally thought that was Suju’s Sexy, Free ^ Single from a smaller thumbnail.

  58. How do you enter the giveaway?

  59. The only time I saw a cd come with that much stuff was when Fall Out Boy had a preorder special when Folie a Deux was coming out. There were three options. The first one was a cd and wristband. The second one was the cd, wristband, poster and t-shirt.

    The third one (the that much stuff one) was the cd, wristband, poster, shirt, teddy bear flash drive key chain and a limited edition hoodie.

  60. Naaaaaah. I don’t know how to enter. I Hope just leaving a comment is enough ;w; I need it ! o: Omo. When I would win, it would be pretty expensive four u haha. Shipping from Korea to Germany ? :D

  61. ^o^/ That is so awesome!!!!!!!! :D The way they package their cds is epic!

  62. Wow i guess they r going like the id data back in my country really big packages lol but I love it I want one hope I can win one I enter already. * crossing my fingers *

  63. Please explain to me how can we participate in the contest !!

  64. …signed Big Bang and 2NE1 CDs? Reaaaaally? I have a feeling you’re trolling us…


  65. I really want one of those T^T

  66. Waaa, so big! But believe me, CNBLUE’s EAR FUN Special Limited Edition is almost the same – but there’s no sunglasses or something like that xDDDD Just a two photobooks, which are like a giant A4 book and, of course, CD and DVD *____* It was quite expensive but I’ve never regret buying this!

  67. I think it’s a strategy from companies to fight illegal downloading. In France the CD sales collapse, but honestly who would pay 30 bucks for a little plastic box when we can have the songs for free? While when I was in Incheon airport, I spent hours in the CD shops watching everything and trying to decide which one I would buy!

    My friends are always super impressed by the Big Bang special edition album you guise sent me, and yet it’s much smaller than a shoe box. But it’s really uncommon here to see a different shape of CD box. And a 100-page photobook with random Engrish sentences instead of a 10-page booklet with lyrics.

  68. wow this is the biggest CD i ever seen, i knew it will be big but i didnt think it would be this big ! ahah Ze:a and Star Empire realllllyyy worked hard on it ! I so want it >.<

  69. I saw a 2am album that was like this and THEY ARE EXPENSIVE… T_T

  70. Wow!! O.o I didn’t know they could be so big O.o but i LOVE it :D

  71. wow, that’s huuuuuge! I wonder how expensive these cds are O_O
    I couldn’t probably even know where to store them xD

  72. LMAO~ honestly I am so scared to touch the albums too, even though it’s not a signed one I’m scared.

  73. @eatyourkimchi Not sure if you’ve seen CNBlue’s LE, but its 11+inches by 8inches! Bigger right? twitpic.com/a71ph5


  75. Soo Huugeee~! I waaant! But how do we enteeer?! O.o

  76. Taeyang’s Deluxe Album had a shirt in it as well. Pretty awesome!

  77. I love Martina’s enthusiasm for Big Bang an 2NE1 *_*…
    and wow that CD cas is HUGE!! <3 want it *_*

  78. what do i have to do to enter?? do i just comment under the video??~~~

  79. it looks so amazing !!! *____________*!

  80. Woh~!! That is massive!! O__O” I have never seen an album that big. Except for old records but those are understandable but this is bloody huge~!! *Still in awe*

  81. WOW O___O THAT’S HUGE! – that’s what she said. Sorry.. I had to ><"

  82. Wow Now I wonder if you can show us your own Kpop collection! I bet it’s awesome ^___^/ so envy the Bigbang and 2ne1 YG Stans :D

  83. Now every other cd’s is going to look boring…. IT’S AWESOME !!

  84. holy shirt that is huge ! I haven’t ever seen anything like that :D

  85. I have never heard anyone call those windmills before. I’ve always called them pinwheels. I guess you can call them both. *~the more you know~


  87. Use hairspray~^^ Spray it on to the albums^^ It’ll protect the autographs… But if you guys can, get fixative. Works better :) I went crazy spraying fixative over my autographed DoraDora album~~ D8

    • you hav a signed dora dora album?!?! I want it~ i hav a signed Breaktime album. I don’t need to cover/hairspray it as its already got a cover.

      • Yes I do^^ I bought it in store… So it was pretty expansive. I had to get it sprayed and covered because the signed the outside wrapping, so the plastic cover. So I haven’t opened it to see if there’s anything inside it~ LOL I might see if I can get my hands on an autographed Dear My Friend^^”

    • Spraying an autograph with hairspray work? I definitely need to try it ^^ Does it matter which kind of hairspray? I also have an autograph Doradora too :p I want to get Dear My Friend but don’t know where they’d have it.

  88. Kimmicci
