Kpop is so in-demand that we want to buy albums. We also want to purchase their official lightsticks, and other merchandise. Scroll down to find my list of places to purchase kpop albums and other merchandise in the Philippines.
TRIVIA History Lightstick
Did you know that Big Bang was the first to create their own lightstick? To show support at concerts and award shows, fans used balloons that were the same color as their favorite band back in the 90s. This is a problem because some bands use the same color, which can lead to heated arguments among fans. G-Dragon, the leader of Big bang, believed that his fans deserved something special until the late 2000s. They created the Bang Bong, the first ever lightstick in Kpop. The rest is history.

- – All the stores I have mentioned are based South Korea. However, this store is only based at BF Homes, Paranaque. Yes, there are. This shop was recommended to me by one of my Instagram followers, when I was searching for an RJ Jumbo Doll. This shop is more of a personal shopper than a store. Although they have some on-hand merchandise, most of their items are available for pre-order. You can use their Personal Shopper Service if you are looking for kpop albums, lightsticks or other merch.

It depends on where you live and what shipping method you select, but it can take a while before your order arrives. Sometimes, they don’t update. However, I have found that their customer service responds within 24 hours.
- HARUMIO – I found this website through Laine of GlowCounsel. This website is more of a personal shopper than a store. You can find merch, lightsticks, and albums on their website. However, you can also request custom items. This means that you can ask them to purchase anything in South Korea. There is a fee for this service. can find out more.
