The release date for Make Your Move in Korea is April 17, 2014 and right on its tail is the release in the United States, April 18, 2014. Yet, despite these dates, fans who want to see this move ‘likenow’ are going to many lengths to do so, and being taken advantage of by unscrupulous people that lead them to click on phishing links containing malware.

You MUST be familiar with the site where you plan to purchase your DVD. If not, don’t do it!  There are currently Make Your Move DVD’s on the market, but buyer beware! Not all DVD’s are created equal.

DVD’s are produced differently in various regions depending on the type of DVD player that is sold in those regions. Buyers need to purchase the right DVD for their region. There are 6 major regions for DVD’s and 3 regions for Blu-Ray players.

DVD’s that are sold in the United States are for Region 1; in Korea, the DVD’s are Region 3 copies. Please note, however, that Make Your Move DVD’s for these regions have NOT been released yet!  It may be possible to pre-order them. Amazon.com often allows this. Check it out for your country.

DVD Players
Region 1: U.S., U.S. Territories, Canada, and Bermuda
Region 2: Japan, Europe, South Africa, and the Middle East, including Egypt
Region 3: Southeast Asia, East Asia, including Hong Kong
Region 4: Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America, South America, Caribbean

Please be careful about players that say they are “region free”. Some Region 1 DVDs may contain Regional Coding Enhancement (RCE), but some people have problems playing these enhanced discs on so-called “region-free” DVD players.

When shopping for DVD’s, you also have to note if it is a PAL disc or a NTSC disc. NTSC and PAL are used worldwide and are formatted using two main television broadcast standards. PAL and NTSC discs must be played in a unit that is compatible to their formatting.  They are not compatible with each other. You need to know what kind of TV you have before purchasing NTSC or PAL discs. See the list below for the types of TV’s generally sold in various countries.

If you purchase a DVD that was created in PAL format from someone in Europe, you might not be able to play it back without a PC that is able to play back content in PAL format. There are converters on the market to accomplish this, but that subject is beyond the scope of this blog.

In summary, always check the product details before making a purchase. In the United States, you want a NTSC video for Region 1. For Korea, a NTSC video for Region 3.
