Looks like Type A is now sold out at Plain Archive.
Ah I see. Even then, it would not look out of place to move the title to the other side, without flipping the images. It actually would look better on type B imho.

I think "back" and "front' are a bit different when comparing Eastern and Western sensibilities, similar say to the way Manga story-lines flow. To us it's like reading a storybook back to front.
Just an impression I get at least.

Is the storyboard book exclusive to Type A and to plainarchive?
I missed it thanks to being at work until a few hours ago and it was sold out already.
Just pre-ordered at yesasia, they got it for $65, no additional costs for shipping.

Also got Type B from plain.

I notice that NOVA also displays the storyboard book as inclusive so I suspect not exclusive to PA but is only with FS type A.
I think just the art card is exclusive to PA;

I think the Artbook with Type B is going to be beautiful as well but can't afford both right now.

Is the 1/4 slip available anywhere other than Plain or Yesasia?

The $53 price at Yesasia seems extremely high but I dunno what it was listed at on PA's site

EDIT: Seeing now that it's eligible for free international shipping, I guess this price would be the same as Plain's + their shipping so I've got nothing to complain about haha

I guess that makes sense.
Shipment Units for Type A is 4.
It's 2 for Type B.

I already own a few.
Can fully recommend the Korean release of the soundtrack. So beautiful.
(And I haven't actually watched the movie yet lol)

No idea where I put my Korean photo book.
Need to find it.

At least some pics of the German Limited Edition (sadly no digipack inside) and the Korean soundtrack.

Yes. Yesasia always has a higher list price because of the free shipping.

Went ahead and ordered the 1/4 slip from Yesasia ~

Never ordered a 1/4 slip from Plain before since I want my whole collection to match with the beautiful slipboxes (and I only buy one of each release). I also don't especially want another huge slipbox on my shelf without belonging to the Plain collection, so this was perfect haha I'm glad it was one of the options. Looks so dope and I've wanted to own this movie since I saw it in 2016, really excited to revisit it in August!

Type A may be cheapest at yesasia because of the free shipping.
Can anyone who got Type A from Plain Archive please tell us how much shipping to Europa/States was?

For Type B I paid around 60 bucks in total and that's nowhere as heavy as Type A.

^^ $19 usd for shipping Type A to Canada (for a total of $68.49). I suspect USA would be the same.

Found the photo book.
Can really recommend it to anyone loving the movie and/or loving the work(s) of Park Chan-wook.
Even has some English inside of it.

My order of Type A was $49.49 + $17.00 shipping, so $66.49 total to the States from Plain Archive.

I've never ordered from YesAsia before. What's their packing like? Considering ordering slip A from them.

I just checked it out. They ship by weight and they have that one version listed as weighing almost 4 pounds. That's like the weight as a regular 1-click.

On the flip-side, Plain is shipping my triple pack for $29, so I really can't explain it.

I got it via ebay.
Paid more for shipping than for the actual book itself. Book's weight is 1.1 kg so around 2 pounds and 7 ounces.
144 pages.

From here
https://www.ebay.com/sch/koreanmuse/m.html
Very nice and friendly seller. Packed it all with tons of bubble wrap.

They still sell the book as well as the soundtrack.
Got both from there.
They quite often also sell rare OOP things.

No idea about their current packaging.
I ordered from there tons of stuff around 10+ years ago.
Their packaging back then was good. I have no other choice in this case (except nova media and they ask for way more postage).
