Surprise! This is the Korean edition

"I loved Fantasia when I was a kid, and it was now time to share it with my grandchildren. I was satisfied with the price, quality and availability of this product, but, when my daughter first inserted the DVD into the player, she was disconcerted to find that the language of the speaker and the settings was Korean. She's a clever woman and she managed to fiddle with the controls to find how to switch both the spoken and subtitled portions to English, but there was no indication in the ad on Amazon that this would be necessary, and no instructions accompanying the item as to how to adjust the settings for language.
Great show, but I think that the marketing was unclear at the least, and possibly misleading. I am disappointed in the seller, whose response to my emailed comments was unsatisfactory to me."
Surprise! Korean version

"I was so excited to share this movie with my son. It has great music, and wonderful animation to go along and to spark the imagination. How bitter was my disappointment when I opened the box to find the cover completely in Korean! My son opened the packaging before I could stop him, and so I put it in the DVD player and hoped against all odds it would be in English. I was sorely disappointed again. Luckily the majority of the movie is music and no dialogue, but it is always a blow when you are expecting one thing and get another. Just be warned this is not the English version, it is Korean."

"Knowing the film is in Korean with the ability of English helped. I would have given it 5 stars except it is not that easy to get the english version up.
It takes a bit of trial and error and guessing the first few times then I wrote the instructions down.
Using the remote was easier than the buttons on my machine. The big problem is the first screen you get is all in Korean and you have to guess what the three choices are. I think it was the middle choice that got you to the language menu.
You have to reset it each time.
Other than that - it is fine."
It was in Korean

"Perhaps I wasn't careful enough in reviewing my purchase but the DVD was the Korean version. Don't remember seeing that explained on the internet before I purchased."
