Damn... There may be a shipping crisis, but my package with the three previous FS ordered from the pung off eBay, shipped via FedEx, took 2 days from Korea to my doorstep in Germany. :OMG: And flew right by customs.

Btw, if someone is interested in the three previous FS minus the steels, drop me a PM.

Full Slip for me since I already have FS for ITMFL and Happy Together, the lenti looks really nice though I wish it was Tony on the cover

Been waiting for this to hit the Nova website and someone pointed me to over here. Looks great! I prefer the Tony/Faye storyline so the fullslip is the one for me. :)

It's not. Both movies play fine on my Region B player.
Ok, how would you explain this?

In addition to what @jailbird_joey has posted already, please check the YesAsia listings for "In the Mood for Love" and "Happy Together" (or any other NE release). You'll find them stating being Region A locked, too. This isn't the case, as I have posted earlier. I don't know why Nova (and other Korean retailers) print the wrong region codes on the slips and discs. IIRC somebody posted here it has something to do with distribution rights, but I wouldn't know anything about the whys and hows. All I can say is that the discs play fine, and it would come as a GREAT surprise if it were any different with "Chungking Express". Actually I think there's no Nova release at all that is actually locked to Region A.
