Movie Rentals

I love to watch movies and want to know where I can rent or maybe even buy English DVDs. I'd prefer to buy them here in Daegu, but I'm willing to travel a bit.

I would suggest investing in a good portable hard drive and learn to torrent movies.  If your hell bent on buying them I would look at play asia or another website.  Honestly, torrents are so nice and easy.  Why spend the extra cash in Korea if you don't have to. 
It's -ev to deal with some people.

I've know about torrents for years and I used it in the past, but I do want to watch movies and use my laptop seperately. And the whole stealing thing doesn't sit to well with me anymore. Also torrents can be a pain in the butt if the seeding isn't great, etc.

I'm not really interested in buying movies as renting them. I'll give play asia a try.

Check your local public library.  I'm in Incheon and they have the biggest movie selection I've ever seen.

There's a movie rental place near my apartment.  It's really cheap to rent movies (about 2000 won I think) and you just need your ARC and address to do so.

I don't know about Daegu, but up here in Yongin, we have a chain of DVD/Comic Book rental stores. The sign is a blue circle with a bear (?) in the middle. I can't remember the name, but when I do I'll post it!

It's easy to sign up. You just give your basic info and a Korean person's phone number (co-teacher or friend). Rentals are cheap too!

Keep you eye out for Comic Book rental places, as those usually have DVDs too.

I can't help you WRT Daegu, but your best bet is to just look around. Where I live (Ilsan), I've seen a bunch of DVD/comic book/etc. rental places. They tend to be near more highly residential areas, which makes sense.

DVD rental stores are still around.  The last time I went into one to ask about signing up to rent a dvd, the owner wanted a deposit from me.  I told him that I never give deposit money for renting dvd's and walked out.  I was surprised he asked for a deposit, actually.  Has anyone else ever been asked for a deposit?  I prefer to buy the dvds of my favorite movies.  I l ike being able to watch them whenever I want.
