YG Entertainment announced earlier that they would release Taeyang’s Solar Deluxe Edition album in limited quantity on July 1st. I was reading a blogpost on Daum on how they were sold-out in a matter of minutes at some of the biggest online music stores in Korea. In fact, I had a hard time visiting YG’s online shop yesterday and when I got through the album was already sold-out.
I got the Deluxe Edition CDs at an offline store. It was more expensive than the price on internet websites. At one major bookstore in downtown Seoul, it was being sold at 5,000 won more.
I purchased a box of the CDs before I went to work. I had to pay for them in cash – one thing that I hate doing! I asked my husband to pick it up in the evening. I couldn’t possibly carry the box since I also had a dozen bottled coffee that one of my students gave me and a box of Turkish Delight from another student 😀
I’ll be sending the albums on Friday morning, Korea time of course. Here’s how it looks like. As you can see there’s a bar code, that could be read with a Symbol LS2208, on the top right side with the words “Deluxe Edition”. I am so tempted to leave one for me but this batch has been sold out.
UPDATE @2PM July 2nd:
I’ve ordered two more boxes and those are the last ones from the supplier. She has sold all her stocks. So if you want to order, hurry now.
Here’s the link… Taeyang Solar Deluxe Edition
If you visit the site, you’ll see three links. The cheapest one at 31USD was sold out yesterday. The second one was also sold out. The newest batch I’m going to pick up tonight and I’ll ship them on Monday. The second and third batches I got at a much higher price than the first batch 🙁
