Moving on to the “Six Flying Dragons” Making DVD Survey.
As we’ve reported here, “Six Flying Dragons” conducted a survey for “Six Flying Dragons: The Making (Behind-the-scene)” DVD version. It’s a petition for the production team to release the director’s cut version of this drama.
Now, there’s a good news and bad news. The good news is: we’ve reached 1,000 participants in the survey, aka imaginary buyers, which means the production company will produce the DVD. The content will include unreleased BTS and the script reading. The rest of the content such as: NGs, deleted scenes, interviews, and martial art work preparation are yet to be confirmed.
The bad news is: we won’t get complete features such as director and actors’ commentary, unreleased OST, and English subtitles. Basically, it’s all due to the production cost, and the nature of behind the scenes (BTS) where it’s difficult to make subtitles. Le sigh. (See complete news in Oohhkkay blog)
Well, at least we’ll get our hands on the fantastic BTS DVD -which initially didn’t have any plan to be produced at all- and we’ll be pampered by the joy of making the drama, including our Master Bang Won’s contagious laughter, through this DVD! 😀
