* RECORDS with ERROR

I do not want this page to have only my opinion....

    1. Introduction

  During the years when I have bought records, I saw many records with error, but didn't always think major record companies took proper measures. Because I am a record consumer, I think makers have the duty to hear me if I pose problems on their goods.
  I don't want this page to have only my opinions. Anyone can contribute here and it will help other purchase records so as to avoid records with defects. Any opinions on my items will be welcomed. ^^

    2. Records with Error

   I contain the items of international and Japanese versions in this page because this page was planned for all record lovers, not only for Koreans. The reason Japanese versions are included is because they are inevitable sources to get unissued by majors. The icon means that I provide realaudio(.rm) file of the erratic parts. You can hear them by Realplayer after opening(or downloading) by clicking the note image or the icon. (Realplayer download)
