Aladin US Purchase Guide
Aladin is a Korean retailer that specializes in books & cds/dvds. As such they have a great variety of content from Korean magazines to SHINee concert DVDs~! They do have a small selection of SHINee’s Japanese discography but they’re really expensive. The thing that’s great about Aladin is that as a Korean retailer, your purchases will count toward Korean Hanteo & Gaon charts – but you get the best of both worlds because they have a US branch! So all of your orders over $50 will ship to you for FREE~! You may be wondering why haven’t we talked about this before? Well their interface is all in Korean. But never fear! We’ve got a guide just for you! 🙂
1. Make sure you are on the US version of Aladin (click here)!

You may have to look up certain items like magazines by their Korean names. But for the most part, typing in “SHINee” will help you find a lot of albums without much trouble!

5. Shipping Options
If you need further details on this, Google Translate will get you through a lot of the details of this. But for a basic breakdown, here’s what you’re looking at!
A lot of this stuff was auto filled for me, but if you’re paying by credit card (I personally use Paypal) I would recommend using Google Translate to work through this (just copy + paste the sections you don’t understand). It’s not usually too far off for translating simple things like these forms 🙂
Congrats! You did it! 😀 Your items are on the way!
