This is a guide to buy scores off Akbobada, a Korean site. I mainly like their piano instrumental scores, which you can’t find elsewhere and are godsends to people that want to sing along while they play the proper, non-melodical parts.
EDIT: I made a new site, http://www.kpopmusicsheets.com, to process any orders.
1. Using Internet Explorer, register here: http://www.akbobada.com/servlet/akbobada.main.servlet.MemberServlet?command=memberProvision
3. Enter Name, E-mail (its in English)
4. Enter the information (username, address etc); you’ll need to verify the username to make sure its not taken.
Now you should be able to login at the top right.
5. Time to put some money in your account: https://www.akbobada.com/akbobada/main/mySea/cash_charge.jsp
Edit: You don’t have to do this, I believe you can just select that VISA, MASTER option directly and pay for the score you checkboxed only.
Choose the amount you want (e.g. the option I selected, you get 5500 if you pay 5000 WON), and click on the bubble I circled.
6. On this page, click the button indicated below:
7. Out comes a window. You’ll have to install the Active-X control thing. It should be automatic.
8. If you succeeded with the step above, you should get the window shown below:
You’ll probably select VISA or Mastercard in that drop down gray box (in the left window above where it says something-VISA). Then enter your credit card number, followed by the expiry date. Then click the blue button on the bottom.
You’ll need to make an account with whatever your VISA bank is if you haven’t already done so.
I left the 010 thing blank and just pressed the blue button.
Now you should get some verification that it is all complete… in Korean.
9. If all went well, the there should be money in your account now.
10. Buying is very simple.
Check the box next to the one you want, and then click the bag button. Afterwards, you should be able to view your bought score and download it. You might want to click on the small green treble clef to preview though. Usually one of the scores are suited for piano + voice, one for piano only, and comes in variations of original key and easier key (like C Major).
