I'm not sure about the specific one you are talking about as I haven't watched that series but don't they seem to use LG more than Samsung?? I'm pretty suprised cos here in UK Samsung is bigger than LG but I think in korea LG is like one of the biggest electronics company. Actually, not just mobile phones, koreans generally like to used korean branded stuff, they are patroitic in this aspect..like cars and stuff, usually all korean brands!! What's more, I think 90% of korean phones are flip phones #_#' Haha..I rarely see the stars use non-flip phones and to be honest, besides LG and Samsung, I think it'll be quite hard to get hold of the other korean brands. Sorry, I don't seem to have been any help!!

Oh yea they usually use LG's CYON or Samsung's Anycall but both Cyon & Anycall aren't available elsewhere , it has to do wif the band or network or type of phone or something , can't remember .

If u watch Korean shows opening or closing credits , u usually will see the names CYON or ANYCALL ~~

ya ya , maybe it has to do wif sponsors also , anyway Korea has alot of their own products , they are quite loyal to their brands ~~

the best cellphone i had ever seen was hyun bin's cellphone in my name is kim

sam soon... i really wanted to get my hands on that cellphone until i found out that

his cellphone was exclusive for seoul only because it is like a television... it has a

built in satellite i think... its a samsung SCH-B100... i was sooooooo into this

cellphone... the style is sooooo unique.. i had never seen a cellphone with the

same style as this model... usually,cellphones has the same styles, slide up, slim

and etc... i really envy those who live in seoul... but i still love my country...

hehehe...

HELP!
HELP!
HELP!

What is brand/unit/model/type of cellphone was Lee Dong Wook (Seol Gong Chan) using in My Girl? You know, the Flip/Clamshell design...

I'm really thinking of buying one... Hehe... :D

This raises my obsession to the next level...

THE QUESTION (again):

WHAT BRAND OF MOBILE PHONE DID LEE DONG WOOK (seol gong chan) USE IN MY GIRL?

I hope you guys could help me with this... ;)

Am I super obsessed or what? :blink:

Hehe, I now know what the phone Gong Chan had in My Girl. On top of that, I now also know what Yoo Rin's phone was.

How did I figure these out?
I had to go through episodes of My Girl where the characters held their phones (or the phone had some clear shot), and from there compare it with the phone lists/display in www.anycall.com!!!
Even if I didn't understand Korean, I was able to navigate through the website, all because I want to have the same phone as they do. :wacko:

Sadly, those models haven't been/won't be released here in the Philippines, since it's a CDMA phone, while our networks here all use the GSM platform... :down

Yes...those phones appear in Korean Series are really attractive. They look so unique and well designed. Most of the times, I noticed that they will use Samsung, Innostream and LG handphone. However, I was suprised to see the lead actress in Tree of Heaven using Motorola Cellphone in that series. She was using the pink colour Motorola slim phone. Honestly, it doesn't look that cool. So, Korean brands are still better in my opinion. :P

Nope, I'm pretty sure that both Yoo Rin and Gong Chan were using Samsung/Anycall phones... :D But those phones are hard to identify since they've been released in Korea and in the US (and probably in places where CDMA is besides GSM), BUT NOT in the Philippines.. :)

most of the phones the actors n actresses are using are those from Samsung Anycall... or LG Samsung... these models are the common ones...

SBH-4150-- Jae Hee using in Sassy Girl Chun Hyun

Posted Image
SCH-B250

Posted Image
SCH-B100-- binnie's phone....

Posted Image
SCH-V500-- Samsoonie's phone...

Posted Image
SCH-V740 -- think this is the phone that Lee Dong Wook is using in My Girl.....

Posted Image
SPH-V4400-- the phone Lee Da Hae using in my Girl

i found that many of the models are so similar... think these phones can only be found in Korea... anyway i can't confirm that they are using the above models cos this is wat i managed to identify...

I bet the pictures which takes using it r same as digital camera because it was the 5 megapixel camera phone in it!! It was the world first cellphone with 5 megapixels camera!! Of i forget, it is from SAMSUNG but i don't remember the phone model!! :blush HeHe.....

I agree! That phone is uber-cool! I love the flipping action!!! :D

But do take note, it's not just LDW who uses the phone. By the end of the series (Episodes 15 and 16), Gong Chan's phone is no longer the flip phone :thumbdown, he instead uses a new one. Lee Jun Ki/Seo Jong Woo now uses the flip phone.

Anyway, for those who are interested, here are Yoo Rin's and Gong Chan's phone models during the early part of My Girl (before the two-year separation/Episodes 15 and 16).

Yoo Rin's phone - SPH V8450/V8400 (the one that Seo Jong Woo gave her as a gift)
Gong Chan's phone - SCH V740

As you can see, they are SPH and SCH, NOT SGH... Which means they're not using GSM phones... WAAAH!!! How I wished there were non-GSM service providers here in my country... :crying:

But there's hope for me (and anyone else who wants a GSM version of those phones)!!! Similar-looking GSM models have been released by Samsung in other continents/countries outside Asia... So perhaps I could order those phones via the Internet from some website in the UK or some other place... :thumbsup
