Jaehoon is now ready to share this material in his new DVD, Navy Effects. Navy Effects focuses on brand new and practical card color changes.
Jaehoon shows you each color change in detail with multiple video angles, slow motion video, (A,B) cards and transparent cards to make learning faster and easier.
If you love color changes, this is a DVD you must have!
How accurate is the ad copy? This is true
What's in the box? DVD & card gaffs
Key points: Jaehoon has made a unique DVD for beginners – to learn some basic skill and a few standard flourishes alongside his original color changes.
How are the production values: smells like men’s cologne when you open it – plenty of versatile shots as well as plenty of supportive sleights to full equip you for what you are going to learn. Jaehoon’s first language is Korean, but he tries hard to communicate in English through the DVD.

My thoughts Nothing against the video or Jaehoon’s creation, but at the end of the day the premise of this wasn’t for me. A collection of color changes and then tricks with color changes just isn’t my character. It was filmed well, but it just wasn’t interesting enough for me.
