BTS Merchandise – Poster, Phone Case, Notebook and More

Welcome to our BTS merchandise page! BTS (aka Bangtan Boys) are one of the hottest groups in Kpop right now. So, naturally, we want to show our love and support for their great music! We’ve found some of the best places to buy official BTS merchandise online.

BTS Merchandise

Here’s the scoop. I do a lot of poking around for kpop fan merchandise, so I know a lot of the best places to buy stuff. Here’s my top picks for different BTS products.

BTS Poster

Do you want posters of the BTS members individually or them as a group? How about both? You’ll probably want to get a BTS poster of just the whole group, plus one of your bias like a lot of fans. We’ll either way, I have found some really nice ones. Check these out. These are some of the most popular ones right now:

BTS Group Posters

If you’re looking for the ones with individual members, here’s some really nice ones I’ve found. By the way, you can click the image to go and buy one for yourself, too.

Here we’ve got Jungkook being adorable in a shopping cart, Suga being serious, and V making a V. Pretty ironic isn’t it? The next row below, we have Taehyung on a skateboard, Rap Monster looking tough, and Jimin just chillin’. These are from a site called Redbubble and I like them a lot. You can check them out here.

BTS Phone Case

Ok, so these phone cases are really nice. I love kpop-themed phone cases because you take it with you wherever you go! There are some great BTS phone cases that I’ve found.

These are really cool, because they have, not only BTS themed phone cases, but also even cases themed around individual songs/albums like “Dead Leaves“, “Papillon”, “Wings”, or my favorite the “I Need You” BTS phone case. That one has that nice picture of all the boys on the grass everybody knows. See All Kpop Posters.

Additionally, they have laptop sleeves and stuff like that, too.

BTS Notebook

Another great fan merchandise item is notebooks. You may want it for school, or just to write at home. But, it’s great having BTS right there with you. Like the phone cases, the BTS notebooks come in all different styles.

Here’s some of my favorites (pictured below): The first on it just a cute list of “kpop fan talents” like “the ability to memorize 12-member groups” faster than subjects in school. The second one is some of the lyrics from “Tomorrow”.The third notebook is just a nice picture of BTS with a light blue backgroun and their signatures in white. The signatures are obviously not an original actual signature from a BTS member but a copy, but still cool nonetheless. Number four is just plain black and white with the member’s names. The 5th notebook is cute little cartoons of the boys. The 6th one is inspired by “Wings” and has a really nice picture with the BTS members’ signatures (again, a copy). Then, there’s “Dead Leaves”, another cute cartoon one, an “In the Shadows” inspired notebook, a polaroid-fashioned one, a nice close-up picture of our Golden Maknae Jungkook. The last one is funny. It just says “Infires” which was a funny moment when Suga when someone said “inspires” and he thought they said “infires”.

More BTS Fan Merchandise

We’ll be adding more to this BTS fan merchandise page, so be sure to check back soon. BTS fans will also want to read our full review of the BTS lightstick – The Army Bomb. It’ a great light stick and we go into all the detail and features of it. I didn’t put it on here since we already have a whole post dedicated to that lightstick and other kpop lightsticks.

Other Kpop Posters and Merchandise

Some of the most popular BTS merch is posters. Everyone loves a great poster, but where can you get one? We we have another full article on Kpop posters. In that article, we discuss some of my favorite places to buy posters for all different kpop artists, including BTS, EXO, Mamamoo, Red Velvet, and more. We also have a full post on some of the best places to get kpop merchandise for other groups.

A Little About BTS

BTS‘ name translates to “Bulletproof Boyscouts” and they debuted in 2013. Their members include Jungkook, Jimin, Suga, V, J-Hope, Rap Monster, and Jin. Rap Monster is the leader and main rapper (obviously, with a name like rap monster, right?).  Jin (shortened, from Seok Jin) is the visual. J-Hope and Jimin are the dance leaders. V is the vocalist (meaning he’s the youngest) and Jungkook is the maknae. Jungkook is also considered by some to be the fae as he’s one of the most popular. I like the #BTS Twitter feed to stay up to date as well as the BTS Tumblr tag feed.

Here’s their most popular video, Blood Sweat and Tears:

And our very own video, showing some of the stuff in this article:

And, I can’t end the article without this picture of V. I want a phone case of that!

Kpop Posters – EXO, BTS and More

Looking for kpop posters? No kpop fan’s decor would be complete without some posters with their favorite kpop stars. There are many places where you can find quality kpop posters online. Here’s some of my favorite picks: RedBubble and Amazon.

(I like Yesasia for photobooks and mini posters, but if you’re looking for full sized posters for your wall, then Redbubble and Amazon are the way to go.)

#1 Favorite Place for Kpop Posters

My favorite place to find kpop posters is Redbubble. They have really nice ones that you won’t find anywhere else. The have a nice big selection of posters, especially if you’re into BTS and EXO. Some big EXO and BTS fans on there :). But they do have pretty much all the kpop stars, even some of the lesser known ones. Here’s the kind of stuff you’ll find on RedBubble.

See All Kpop Stars Posters on RedBubble

EXO Posters on Redbubble

most popular kpop posters by EXO

BTS Posters on Redbubble

bts-kpop-posters-on-redbubb

Their selection is really nice and they even have a a few fan-made-style posters if that’s what you like. But, overall, I consider it the best place to find posters of your favorite kpop groups. For more ways to show your kpop fandom, you can also see my articles on other kpop fan merchandise and kpop fan lightsticks. Also, check out our page especially made for all BTS fan merchandise.

 

Favorite Place #2 – Amazon

Another great place to buy kpop posters from is Amazon. They have a wide variety of posters to choose from. It’s pretty easy to open up a store on Amazon, so you will find the most selection there:

Click to see the selection on Amazon

One cool thing about Amazon is that they have some more obscure posters. For example, some posters that only came with a certain album, or were only sold at a concert, are some of the gems that you could find here.

Be mindful on here, though. While it’s really cool that they have some of the harder to find posters, not all are legit. This is kind of a funny example:

Looks great, right? This is a rare poster of G Dragon and T.O.P of Big Bang in some nice black suits. But what’s that in the top left corner?

Who is “G Drogon”?

g-dragon-and-top-poster

Anyway, it is what it is, lol.  If you look closely at the seller information it says it’s “by Poster Station” but if you look at the fulfillment information below it, it’s actually shipped and sold by someone called “wiangwee_k” and ships from Thailand. So, it looks like this one’s a knockoff, or unofficial product. They’re probably just a 3rd party that just finds a decent sized image that they know kpop fans will like (other fans too, they sell posters about pretty much everything) and print it off on poster paper on their own.

That being said, the people who bought it do seem really happy with it. If you look at the reviews for this poster, they all mention that despite the type they still really like the poster. It’s of good quality and they enjoy it very much overall.

Putting up You Poster

Here’s a neat little video on how to put up your poster. She shows how to use sticky tack to make sure the poster’s edges don’t fold over and how to position them so they don’t fall down.

Here’s another video from KpopSteve about things to think about for poster placement in your room (not next to doors is an important one!)

I hope that these two resources have been helpful to you. I’m sure that whatever you’re looking for, one of these two will have the poster you’re looking for. Worst case scenario, you just make your own on several websites for $20-$30, depending on the size. If you do that, just make sure you use a really high resolution image. It may look good on your computer, but it’s going to be blown up to several feet tall. So, it has to be a really high res image for a poster, otherwise it will look grainy and pixelated.

Please leave me a comment below and let me know if you have your own favorite place to find kpop posters online.

Big Bang Light Stick Version 4 – Price/Where to Buy: USA, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore

Here’s an extremely popular lightstick among kpop fans: the Big Bang Light Stick Version 4! If you’re here, you already know that in 2014 Big Bang the World Music Awards‘ World’s Best Group, World’s Best Live Act, and the World’s Best Video. You also know that in between winning Daesangs left and right in Korea, they collect international awards like getting the MTV Europe Music Awards for Best Worldwide Act.

Where to Buy

big-bang-gd-lightsticks-at-concert My Review

kpop-fans-with-lightsticksOverview: This is a great light stick. It is sleek and elegant and a pretty nice size, boasting the Big Bang yellow crown atop a white or black base/handle. Good quality construction and nice functionality with a sound-responsive flashing mode.
big-bang-lightstick-at-concert

Design

It has the Big Bang B on top of the yellow lotus flower/crown shape. The B is visible from the top as you can see here in the picture. Overall it’s very pretty and something you would likely want to keep to decorate your room with.

top-of-big-bang-light-sticks

The white or black button, depending on which color you bought, is the on and off switch. The yellow button, which is the same on both, is the mode switch. It has a nice black lanyard with Big Bang Written on one side and YG on the other.

It needs 2 AAA batteries that do not come with the light stick.

bigbang-fan-lightstick-ver4-1-600x750

reaction-mode-on-light-stick-big-bang

bigbang-light-stick-23

Quality

It’s pretty large, but it’s not too heavy to be difficult to hold at a concert. The material feels sturdy, but not too thick to be heavy and tiring. The base unscrews several times to put batteries in, which is great. By this I mean that you have to twist it several times around to unscrew the bottom of the base.

Not all kpop lightsticks have this. Some kpop lightsticks (at least in the past, they seem to make most of them of a higher quality now) the bottom of the base would just kind of twist off in one turn.

This makes it really easy to fall out by accident, meaning you will probably drop it and risk breaking it or losing it at a concert. Also, if the threading gets stripped inside, then good luck getting that thing to screw back on! There’s so little threading, that if you strip it by accident by turning it too hard when the threads aren’t aligned properly, it’ll be messed up and be difficult, if not impossible, to put it back on.

That’s one main reason why I say this light stick is of good quality construction. The base twists many times to smoothly hold it in place and stay there.

The Box

Here is the box in comes in. You’ll might throw it away, but some fans like to keep it. It is a pretty box and a good size for keeping stuff in if you decide to keep it and use it for something.big-bang-official-light-stick-ver-4-black-or-white

Reaction Mode

Reaction mode for this light stick is really cool. It basically has a little microphone that senses when sound is being played and will flash on and off to the beat of the music. It works well both at concerts and some fans even have fun playing with this feature at home, too. Like this:

Here is it in action! This is the Big Bang performing at the Alive Galaxy Tour in LA.

If you want to see another kpop light stick that is even more advanced, check out my post on EXO’s Version 2 Lightstick. But, there are other really cool light sticks that don’t have much advancesd functionality but are stick really cool, like the BTS Lightstick.

exo_lightstick-with-on-black-bgbts-army-bomb-official-lightstick

Other Things It Comes With

It comes with instructions on how to replace the battery. But, let’s be honest. You can probably figure that part out yourself without these instructions.

Unboxing

Here is a beautiful unboxing video done by Life with Anna.

 Where to Buy Yours Outside Korea (USA, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Others)

If you live in Korea, you’re probably not looking it up online, so here’s the scoop:

If you want to buy if from the YG eShop online, you have to sign up for Naver, which is entirely in Korean. I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel too comfortable putting in my credit card info when I can’t really understand the text on the page. My Korean is ok, but not THAT good!

So, if you’re from the USA, Malaysia, Singapore or the Philippines, (like a lot of kpop fans are) you still want your Big Bang light stick!

Fortunately, though, you can buy official Big Bang merchandise from English-friendly websites like YesAsia. They have all legit official merchandise and provide a great means to buy for those not living in Korea.

We have a new post on BTS, showing some of the BTS merchandise such as posters, notebooks, phone cases and more!

Unboxing Video of the Lightstick

See it in action! Here’s a nice unboxing video by Tina Davidsson. At 3:13 she turns off the lights and shows you what the BTS Army Bomb Light Stick (Big Hit Entertainment) looks like when in lights up, if you want to skip to that part.

Details about the Army Bomb Lightstick

It has 4 different light settings: On, off, blink and flicker. Blink and flicker are similar, one is just faster than the other. It uses 3 AAA batteries that should last about 6 hours. The batteries are included. And, it comes with a nice felt bag, too.

You can see it here lit up:

Dimensions

This diagram is in millimeters, but so you don’t have to look it up the lightstick is about 9.5 inches long. That should give you an idea of the size.

EXO Lightstick – Official Version 2 – Price and Where to Buy 2016

EXO Lightstick Official Version 2.0

First, we are going to take a look at the EXO lightstick. There are 2 versions of this light stick. The first one is called EXO 1.0 and was used for their first concerts. Now, we have EXO Official Light Stick ver 2.0. It looks similar to the first one, but come in white AND has the new feature of syncing to the stage lighting at concerts!

Overview - MUST Watch Video
Where to Buy
The Boxes
Construction
Functionality - The Basics
Functionality - The Really Cool Stuff
Setup For Version 2.0
Extras

Overview

Version 2.0 seems to be of much better quality than the original. The coolest new feature of Version 2.0, though, is how it synchronizes to the stage lighting at concerts. To do this, you just sync up the lightstick to your concert ticket using your smart phone. I have instructions on that below, but first…

You have to see this video of the lightstick in action…

How Cool is this?

 

This lightstick will register where you are sitting in the stadium and will flash in sync with the stage lights at the concert. This alone makes Version 2.0 way better than Version 1.0, but it seems most EXO fans have both to make the collection complete.

Where to Buy

Buy EXO Official Lightstick Version 2.0

The Boxes

The boxes look almost identical besides the obvious color difference and the writing on the back. Version 1.0 has the space background on the inside flap whereas 1.0 is plain white.

exo-lightstick-at-concert

Construction

The new version definitely seems to have been an improvement over version 1.0. Although they are the same size, the new one feels more solid and heavier and has a much better mechanism for screwing in the base. By base, I mean the part that you take off to put the batteries in.

EXO Official Lightstick Version 2.0 (the new one)

exo-lightstick-version-2-0

EXO Official Lightstick Version 1.0 (the original)exo-lightstick-version-1-0

Functionality – Basics

For version 1.0, it just twists about half a turn into place. But, that makes it easy for it to fall out by accident. Version 2.0, by contrast, actually twists around several times so that it gets screwed into place firmly and stays there. Version 2.0 also comes with a silver colored base that you can switch out if you want some variety or something different from the white.

The light in the head of the light stick of version 2.0 is also brighter and whiter than itspredecessor. They have the same functions as far as blinking. The both blink fast and slow as well as just stay on without blinking.

Functionality – The Really Cool Stuff

So now you can use sync your EXO lightstick to your concert ticket’s seat number. When you do you your lightstick will synchronize with the stage lighting during the concert! It’s really a great idea. Here’s a small sample demonstrating what it does.

Just imagine this multiplied by a THOUSAND screaming fans:

Setup for Ver 2.0

Instructions From Baekhyn

The setup for it is really easy. You can watch this video with EXO’s Baekhyun (백현) himself as he explains how to set it up. There are english subs if you don’t speak Korean.

Complete Walkthrough by 팬사이트큐태면

Here is a nice detailed walk-through of the setup. She literally sets it up in front of you.

You can also sign up for the Official EXO fanclub app in Google Play.

Extras for Both

They both also come with stickers of the EXO members, a warranty card, and some of the other essentials. For more, see our post on other EXO merchandise.

Here is an unboxing video showing the difference between EXO’s 2 lightsticks.

Kpop Lightstick Fandom Color

If you’ve ever wondered what the official fan colors are for the different groups, this is a handy chart. It doesn’t include some of the newer groups, but it is pretty comprehensive.

There is some debate over colors, though. For example, TVXQ (DBSK) fans were petitioning when iKON starting using their color, or at least what they felt was too close in color. Kpop fans are very enthusiastic and protectic of their groups, so the Cassiopeia was pretty adamant about it. They even started a petition. You can read more about the TVXQ and iKON fan colors issues here.

Usually, though, most bands have their own colors and no one causes a fuss.

I hope that this page gives you what you are looking for. I’m trying my best to stay on top of the latest developments in kpop and make sure that the biggest groups are properly represented here.

I want to make sure that this site stays current with the most popular kpop stars, so if you don’t see your favorite kpop group here, leave me a message and let me know.

One artists I have not been able to find a lightstick for is Red Velvet. It seems that they for some reason don’t have an official one. In fact, their fans have been using rainbow colors dusters as a placeholder until their official lightstick comes out.

I find it kind of strange that they don’t have one yet. They are very popular, and on a global scale too. I’m not sure why SM Entertainment hasn’t given them an official lightstick, yet. But, I’m sure they will :)

Learn Korean – How To Learn to Speak Korean Online Fast

Learning Korean with Kpop

When you learn Korean you get a lot more out of the music, which is why I started learning it. The language is very contextual so it’s pretty fun and relatively simple to learn. Yes, there are honorifics and formal vs informal speech. But, the grammar is really simple because tit was designed the be simple. In English there are so extra words used to describe the relationships of different words to each other. In Korean, the language uses mostly context to explain meaning of the sentence. This make for a much simpler grammatical structure that is pretty easy to learn.

So this is the new Korean learning site I’m trying out. They have a free trial, who wants to try it with me?

Learning To Speak Korean Helps Get More Out of Korean Dramas

Also, when watching Kdramas it is really useful. While the subtitles are great, once you start to learn the language you see how the subtitles. When you start to learn the language you see how the subtitles don’t always convey the entire meaning of what is being said. The subtitles are incredibly useful, but you’ll get a lot more out of the drama when you understand the specific words used. The cultural differences also influence the word usage. Knowing the culture a little bit makes the drama make a lot more sense. For example, when a girl calls a boy older than her “oppa” that can be significant. If that boy is her real brother then it might not mean anything. But when a girl calls a boy that she likes “oppa” she is verbally trying to be closer to him. If you were to translate that, it would just say older brother. But once you know what it really means and the significance in the culture, oppa has a much bigger meaning depending on the context.

This is just one example of how knowing the Korean language better give what is being said a lot more depth and make the dramas more enjoyable to watch.

How to Learn Korean Faster

If you want to learn Korean faster, I suggest that you try out a program for it. You can pick stuff up on your own with dramas and kpop, but if you really want to make progress it’s a good idea to try a program like Korean Class 101.

They’ll help you by starting with the basics of what you want to know and help you grow from there. It’s a really good idea to just get started with the Korean lessons right away. you would be amazed at how much faster you learn. When you have a structured system that explains it to you and breaks it down into its simplest components it makes it so much easier.

You know how you hear the same phrases over and over again in kpop songs, like saranghae, ottokae, and all those common expressions? Well, when you learn the building blocks of those words you’ll be able to put them together in different ways. Then you’ll be able to recognize more and more words as you watch dramas and listen to kpop.

Think about how many words you recognize now. As you start to learn the building blocks of the words you’ll double or triple your learning speed because you’ll be able to not only recognize phrases that you hear over and over, but you will be able to put the pieces of words together. You can mix and match them and understand what they mean.

For example, imagine trying to learn the English language without knowing the aphabet. You definitely could. There are plenty who learn to speak English language just fine without being able to read or write. But think about how long it takes someone to lean a language by having to memorize words and phrases rather than looking at what the letters of the alphabet are. Again, you could do it. But it would take you a lot longer.

If you learn the alphabet, which consists of the components of words, then you know what the individual buidling blocks of the words are. Then, you can learn to put them together to make other words. You will learn the language a whole last faster because you know and understand the buidling blocks. The differnece is understanding vs memorizing.

When you understand you can use knowledge like building blocks. With memorization, you can only repeat back what you have heard exactly. It’s like a child learning to talk vs a parrot. The child learns and understands how to put words together. A parrot just knows how to repeat. Again, this is the difference between memorization and understanding. It’s like trying to learn korean fashion without knowing what a shirt is.

I hope my little explanation helps, rather than confuses :)

But anyway, if you want to learn some korean you can do it for free, so you really have nothing to lose.
