One thought on “A Brief Intro to K-Pop Merch

  1. I feel a strong love&hate relationship with article. I love finding out about merchandise i didn’t even know abou, but I hate that I don’t have the funds to buy them. I knew the basics like light sticks, towels, fans, pillows, figurines, masks, and apparel, but sparkling water, popcorn, usbs, mouse pads, and shower curtains like WHAT!?!?! After typing all of that I more upset with the realization that I can’t get those…I mean not now, but I don’t want to wait…okay I’ll wait but I’m not happy about so I’ll just listen to SHINee for now. I can’t tell if I’m more upset now about not being able to buy merchandise or if I was more upset about the ending of Moon Lovers Scarlet Heart Ryeo’s ending, but if there’s a season 2 I’m more upset about the merchandise. I’m sorry for rabbling thanks for listening!!
