EXO is one of the hottest bands in the world. You’re probably looking for some EXO merchandise that you can take everywhere with you. Here I’ll show you all my favorite places to get the bets EXO merch and where to find it in your country.
There are a lot of kpop fans all over the world, so the best place to buy most EXO merchandise is online. When you buy it online, you can make sure that they ship to your country. Kpop seems to be especially big in the US, UK, Philippines, and Malaysia. Fortunately all my favortie places to find good kpop merchandise ship worldwide, including to those locations.
Some of the hottest EXO gear is things you wear like shirts, hoodies, hats, etc. Phone cases are also really popular because, even though it’s not clothes, you still take it everywhere with you. Here, I’m gooing to be talking about my favorite places to find all of these. If you’re a BTS fan too, you can see our post on BTS merchandise.
The most popular EXO t shirt (and my favorite) is the EXO Nebula T Shirt. They have them at RedBubble for $24 for a regular fit, or you can get a fitted t shirt for $28 (USD).
Don’t be fooled by the male model in the picture or that it just shows a t shirt.
Just click on it and you can select the the womens, mens, long sleeves vs short sleeves, hoodies, etc. They make pretty much any type of shirt you could want in with this design on the front.
EXO Phone Case
Another must for any EXO fan is an fan phone case. You take your phone with you everywhere so this is a great thing to have. My favorite is the EXO We Are One phone case. It has all the members names with the word love in the middle. The background is white and all the write is a nice mix of black, gray and teal. This one is only be made for Samsung Galaxy phones.
If you have an iPhone, the most popular EXO phone case is this one. It has the classic white EXO logo on black. If O had an iPhone, this is the one I would likely get for myself.
These phone cases are all in the low 20 dollar range, which makes them very reasonable to buy. If you would like something a little fancier, they have some other ones that are up to $35 like these. These are the iPhone wallet-style phone cases that have a cover and pockets to put cards and stuff in. These are the 2 best sellers: The black/gold EXO logo and D.O. having a party with confetti.
What are the hottest EXO posters? Here they are!
The EXO first year poster is a favorite of mine. It has a bit of nostalgia with the black and white vintage look. Also, it has all the old members, including the ones that sued SM Entertainment and left… Luhan 보고시포! (“I miss you, Luhan” in Korean) This one comes in Small or Medium size, which is 23″ by 16″ or 33″ by 23″ respectively. The small is $13 and the medium is $21.
Another great poster is this pink one with a layout of the 9 remaining members. If you like pink and EXO, then this poster is for you. This one only comes in small, which is 23″ by 13″ and costs $13.
Another EXO merchandise item I found that is really cute is EXO dresses. I’ll post more about that later. For now, you can see my other article on dresses.
To wrap things up, check out this great video by Janelle Jae showing her big EXO merchandise haul:
Welcome to the Kpop Merchandise Shop! Here’s where I have collected the best places to get fan merchandise. I’ve looked around at a lot of places and know the ins and outs of the best and worst places to buy from. I’ll share with you my favorite kpop clothing store, where to get official fan merchandise like lightsticks and photocards, where to download music that counts toward the Korean charts, my favorite kpop online store in general, and more!
Browse the categories of our kpop shop and see where the best places are to get your fan gear.
Kpop Clothing Store – both Mens and Womens. What’s the best place to find Kpop clothing fashion online? Check out our top picks. Also, see our article exclusively about dresses in Korea.
Kpop Accessories – Here’s we have a hodgepodge of all the kpop merchandise you can handle. These are the things that don’t really fit into any other category other than “accessories”. But, they include things like kpop keychains, photocards, photocard binders, notebooks, posters, backpack, keyboards, dolls, etc.
Here’s a rundown on my favorite site to buy on of the most important kpop merchandise: phone cases. You take your phone everywhere with you, so it’s one fashion accessory that you can always count on to be with with. This is why I think it’s a great idea to have multiple cases so you can switch out when you feel like it. You can get a few different ones that you like and switch them out whenever you want!
Music -Where to legally buy music that officially counts toward the music charts. Not all music that you buy online, especially if you don’t pay for it, counts toward the Korean kpop music charts. So, if you’re trying really want to show love and appreciation to your favorite kpop stars, you’ll want to buy your music through the right channels. Otherwise, not only are they not getting compensated for their work, but the quality of their music is not being reflected in the charts and they’re not getting the recognition they deserve.
A note to our visitors from the Philippines, Malaysia and the UK.
Most of the places we have mentioned here will work for you if you are looking for a kpop online shop in the Philippines. Most of the stores offer shipping to the Philippines. Just in case it doesn’t we’ll mention it somewhere in the notes so you don’t waste time shopping on an online store that doesn’t ship to your country. But, again, if you’re looking for kpop merchandise Philippines, pretty much all the stores we mention will work fine you.
The same goes for those looking for a kpop shop Malaysia and UK for your fan merchandise.
You may also be interested in our article about where to buy your own hanbok. We’ve found a great resource for you. It’s a hanbok store that will custom make one for you!
Have you seen the amazing clothes that they wear in period Korean dramas? They are the traditional Korean formal wear called a hanbok. Translated, it literally means “korean clothing”. There are many different kinds of hanboks and you may be wondering where you can buy one of your own. Fortunately, even if you don’t live in Korea (or a larger city with a Korea-town) you can still buy hanboks online. There are lots of stores online that sell hanboks, so I’ll be writing soon about the differences between them and which are the best places to buy YOUR awesome traditional, k-drama worthy Korean hanbok!
You’ve likely seen a lot of your favorite hallyu stars in a hanbok. Lee Min Ho, Song Joong Ko, Lee Hyun Woo, etc, etc.
Real Deal Hanboks
The first place I want to tell you about is a seller on Amazon called Antique Alive. They custom male hanboks for you. You just buy the hanbok, tell them your measurements and they make it for you. Pretty neat, huh? It’s like you’re getting the Joseon royal treatment!
This is the “real deal” hanboks made in Korea. Since it is in Korea, it takes a couple of weeks to ship to you. But, if you want something authentic, this is your best bet. They do good work and are very well reviewed.
We’re also going to be looking into cheaper hanboks and where you can find some decent ones without paying too much. Sometimes you may not necessarily want to pay for the Joseon-princess royal treatment, so I’ll be adding some more information here soon.
Main Hanbok Pieces
Here are what the different parts of the hanbok are called. There are different pieces that are only worn by men or women and some worn by both. Some things have changed throughout the centuries, as with all fashion, but the basics of it are fairly consistent enough for this explanation to be useful.
The jeogori is the top part. It is worn by both men and women, but the women’s is shorter and generally more ornate. The men’s is simpler and longer. Jeogori constists of a lot of different pieces, most of which you don’t really need to know. But, in case you’re interested, there’s the git, gil, goreum, seop, so-mae, buri. The little white piece that sticks out from under the collar is called the dongjeong.
Otgoreum (long cloth in front)
That piece of cloth you see in the front of the women’s hanbok is called the otgoreum. It’s just for decoration and hangs down nicely in along the chima, or skirt.
The chima is also only worn by women (the men wear a baji). There are single layered, double layered, and quilted chima. Underneath that, you wear a petticoat-like skirt called a sokchima.
The baji is the pants and is only worn by men. Chimas and bajis are kind of like the traidition Korean form of skirts and pants.They’re a lot baggier than westerner’s pants so that you can sit on the floor.
The black hat you see the men wear is called a gat. The frame is made of horse hair and the fabric is horse hair.
Women’s hanboks consist of jeogori and chima. Jeogori is the top part and is blouse/jacket and is more curvy looking than the men’s. The skirt part is called the chima. Also, only the women’s has the otgoreum.
The men’s hanbok also calls the top part jeogori, like the women’s. The men’s jeogori is a lot more simplistic than the women’s. The bottom pants are called a baji. They are pretty loose fitting to make it easy to sit on the floor. Po is what you call the robe that is worn over everything. Only the men get to rock that sweet gat.
Generally the hanboks are worn on formal or semiformal occasions. Ever since 1996, South Korea has Hanbok Day where they celebrate the the traditional Korean fashion everyone loves. There’s a big fashion show in Seoul and it’s been getting a lot of attention lately as all things Korean are exposed to a more globalized audience. Thanks to technology, this awesome style is being seen by people all over the world.. It even seems to be influencing fashion designers all over the world.
Well, more to come soon. For now, here is a picture of Song Jong Ki with his own sweet gat to hold you over. Also, let me know what kind of hanboks you’re interested in buying. Women’s hamboks vs men’s hanboks vs simple vs ornate? Message me and let me know what kind of hanbok you’re looking for and I’ll see what I can find.
I had a lot of different requests for different Kpop Fashion items. I’ve searched for and found everything from specific t-shirts and sneakers to shoulder harnesses and sailor dresses. In the process of looking for all of those Korean clothes, I’ve been able to find some of the best places to do Korean online shopping. It’s something that I love to do and have always enjoyed. And now, I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite places to buy Korean clothing online.
Korean Fashion Online
One of my favorite places to buy Korean fashion online is Yes Style. I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll say it again here. By far, they have some of the best prices and are usually the first place I look for something. This is my number one pick for Korea online shopping because they have a good return policy and you get your items quickly.
Korean Online Shopping Returns
For most regular fashion products like clothes and shoes you can exchange a defective item or exchange to another size within 14 days. Also, if you just don’t like it you can return the item for within 14 days. I wanted to mention, though, that swimwear, underwear, jewelry can only be exchanged if it’s defective. They won’t let you exchange those things for another size or if you just don’t want it anymore. The only let you exchange those kinds of items if there’s something wrong with it. So, if you’re just buying clothes or shoes you’re free to return it or exchange it within 2 weeks. But, if you’re buying underwear and swimwear make sure you get your right size because they only let you exchange it if it’s defective.
Korean Fashion Deals
Another great thing about buying Korean clothes online from Yes Style is that they are always having specials and deals. Right now for example they are having a deal where if you spend $35 you get free shipping AND they have a 10% off coupon. That’s just at the time of this writing, though. They might have something different going on when you read this. They also have a lot of flash sales so I like to check there often to see what they have going on. This is what’s great about buying Korean clothing online. You can check around and see when they are having sales, all from your phone and laptop!
Korean Online Shop: Most Legit
My favorite legit Korean online kpop shop is QNIGirls. As the name suggests, they only have women’s clothes, but don’t worry there are plenty of other places to find men’s clothing. For women’s Korean clothing online this is, in my opinion, the most authentic you can get. They are actual Korean clothes shipped from Korea. The website is in Korean, lol, but if you’re using Google Chrome it will automatically translate the page for you. So, no worries if you don’t speak Korean. Anyway, this Korean online shop is the real deal. They have tops, bottom, outerwear, and pretty much anything you would want for Korean clothing. For summer, they are also having a lot of swimwear. They a good selection of makeup, shoes and accessories and it is all real deal Korean stuff. So, if you’re looking for a real Korean shopping online experience this is the place to go.
Kpop costumes are another story, though. If you are looking for a costume that you have seen on stage then they might not have what you’re looking for. For something more traditional (or should I say a LOT more traditional) we have a new post on where to find a korean hanbok for sale online. Be on the lookout in the future though as I’ll likely be posting on that soon.
By the way, if you’re feeling brave with your Korean language skills… check out this site: Naver Shopping. A lot of the text is images, so the browser translator won’t work, but check it out if you’re up for it.
Do you love Korean clothing? That’s probably why you are here! I love Korean clothing and fashion and that’s why I made this website. Today I wanted to talk a little bit about what I like about it, where you can find it online. Something that I like a lot about Korean fashion and clothing is the dresses.
One of my favorite places to get dresses is from Yesstyle. There are many different styles of Korean dresses but one of my favorites is the cute, or aegyo, kind. Aegyo is basically Korean for cute…
One of the reasons that I love the cuter dresses is that they are really nice but are still modest and don’t look like you’re trying too hard. Now, a little side point I thought was interesting… what’s considered “going overboard” with your clothes really depends a lot on your culture.
For example, in South Korea, I’ve noticed that it’s a lot more common for girls to show their legs. On the other hand, it’s considered more edgy to show your back and shoulders. Here in Florida where I live, it’s actually the opposite. Girls don’t show their legs as much, but they show a lot of back, shoulders and chest. Of course different people have different styles and preferences, but it’s still considered modest to show your shoulders here whereas it isn’t in South Korea.
That’s one interesting thing that I found about the difference between Korean outfits and other types of fashion: the culture. The culture plays a really large part in what is considered cute and what is considered edgy. I suppose it’s because in Korea it’s a lot colder so it’s okay to show your legs more but if you’re showing off your shoulders I guess it looks like you’re just trying too hard. I guess it’s just too cold! But in hot, sunny Florida, it’s just too hot to cover your shoulders. But you don’t want to go overboard and show too much of your legs either. Of course different people will disagree with this, but that’s just been my observation of the difference between Korean clothing and outfits and what see you around here. Check out our list of top Korean clothing brands below (click to drop down to the list)
Of course, you can’t leave out the classic flowy blouse with a skirt look.
So, if you live somewhere where it’s not all that socially acceptable to show your legs a whole lot, make sure that you take a good look at the Korean dress that you buy. When you’re looking at Korean fashion style clothing, remember that will probably show a lot of leg, especially if you’re tall.
Other Korean Clothing and Outfits
One of my other favorite Korean outfits is the snuggly sweater with shorts. You can see a lot of kpop stars wearing them. It’s something you see a lot of and videos and even in some airport fashion. That’s the great thing about Seoul. You can see kpop and movie stars everywhere because a lot of them live in that one big city, so you get to see both the red carpet Korean fashion as well as the more casual outfits. One of the outfits I like the best is the cute fuzzy sweater top with shorts. I like it because it keeps you warm and toasty and but still but doesn’t look too casual because the shorts make it cute even for going out. This is a nice outfit for hanging out with friends or just being at home. But, you can even go out and look fantastic. That’s what I love about Korean style clothing. If you look at a lot of airport fashion, it’s really nice but it’s very comfortable too. Not all Korean clothing is meant to be super comfortable, but a lot of it is. So, you can look for your favorite Korean outfits on the variety of websites online. You can also check out our new article on where you can buy hanbok.

Think of this as outfit hunting and don’t get distracted.

Go to the next most defining thing and repeat.
What I Mean By Most Defining Article of Clothing
This is a matter of perspective, but you’ll want to start stands out the most to you in the outfit. It might be the shoes. It might be the dress. Maybe the hat. Just pick the ONE thing that you feel is the most important part of the outfit and start there.
Hunting vs Browsing
One thing I learned to do that is very helping when finding Korean fashion online is to think of it as hunting rather than browsing. When browsing you’re looking around to see what’s there. This takes way more effort as you have to look at everything and make little decisions about whether something would work or not. This is why shopping can be so draining. You’re making these tiny decisions, but doing it over and over again really wears you out. It’s mentally intensive and just not the most fun way to shop whether at a kpop shop online or in the store.
When hunting, on the other hand, you have something specific in mind and you ignore everything else. You only have to make one decision: is this the thing I’m looking for? That’s it. You can make that decision over and over again and it’s way less tiring than just browsing. Also, when you have something in mind, it tends to jump out at you because you’re thinking about it.
The same way if you think about everything red in the room. Go ahead and try it. Think about “red” and look around the room. See how all those things that are red just pop out at you? Now think “blue” and look again. Now, you’re seeing all these blue things you didn’t notice before. This is how our brains work and you can use it to help you find Korean fashion a lot faster and make shopping online a lot more fun.
More To Come
Want to know what some of the best places to buy Korean Fashion online? Stay tuned for my next post where will cover Korean online shopping for clothes. We’ll be looking at where to find the best deals and where to find the most authentic Korean clothing brands, too.
Now it’s your turn? What’s your favorite Korean clothing or outfits? What to see me EXO merchandise?
As you can probably tell, I really love Korean fashion. This article I’m going to be talking a little bit more about what I love about Korean style and clothes. I’ll also be going into some of my favorite places to buy Korean Fashion online!
Finding Korean Style Clothes Online
No doubt, you are here because you love kpop and Korean style clothing. You have probably looked around and tried to find specific items of clothing that you’ve seen your favorite K-pop stars wear. In addition to K-pop, kdrama Stars are also famous for what they’re wearing both on-screen and off-screen. The same goes for K-pop Stars. They are just as well known for what they wear to the airport as for what they wear on stage or in their music videos.
Some of my favorite places to buy Korean style clothes is Yesstyle. They have a lot of different selection of Korean Style clothing. Another really good place to get Korean clothes is Qnigirls. They are based in South Korea so they’re about as legit as you can find when it comes to Korean clothing brands.
Cold Weather Korean Fashion
One of my favorite things about Korean fashion is that it is nice and warm while being really stylish. Korea is about the same latitude as North Carolina in the United States. Now, North Carolina is not all that cold, but South Korea is a lot colder even though it is on the same latitude. The reason for this is that South Korea gets the Siberian winds from the north. So, even though South Korea and North Carolina are all about the same latitude, South Korea is a lot colder for most of the year. Because it is a lot chillier in South Korea the style has evolved to include lots of stylish outerwear. A lot of Korean fashion style includes blazers, trench coats, peacoats, boots, and other things that you generally wear in the winter.
Summer fashion can be fun, but nothing beats the stylishness of a more formal looking winter outfit. This is one of the main reasons that I love Korean fashion. They use a lot of nice clothes that keep you warm and look really stylish. Because it’s a little cooler, people focus more on dressing up nicely and taking very good care of their clothes. In warmer climates, it seems like it’s just too hot to do that and so people dress a lot more casually. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it’s just my personal preference to dress a little more on the nicer side and be a little less casual.
Casual Korean Clothes
Even the airport fashion that you see K-pop stars wear are really stylish and look really nice. The whole point of going to the airport is to be comfortable, but I love to see how these K-Pop Stars still manage to look amazing even though they’re in their most casual attire. Even if they’re just wearing sweat pants and a baggy shirt. You can tell that they are well-fitting and flatter their shape and are carefully selected. We also have the other end of the spectrum with traditional korean clothes with our hanbok article, including our favorite hanbok store.
Also, if you plan on going to a kpop concert anytime soon, or just want something new to decorate your room with, check out our new post on kpop lightsticks. We’ll show you the best places to buy official kpop lightsticks. We have pages dedicated to specific lightsticks too like BTS.
A lot of you guys have been asking me about Korean beauty products. It’s something I haven’t really covered before but I wanted to share with you some of my top picks. Amazon actually has a lot really great authentic Korean beauty products and since you’ve asked most about skin care, makeup and hair care, we’ll cover my top picks here:
1) Skin Care
TONYMOLY I’m Real Mask Sheets: These masks are made of 100% natural pulp and each one is different. They come in a 5 pack, which I suggest so you can try different ones and see which ones you like best. The Lemon brightens, the Tea Tree is more soothing, Avocado is for moisture, and so on. It’s nice having variety to play around with.
LG Su:m 37 White Award Detox Mask: This serum mask has vitamin E, omega 6, omega 9. IT’s shipped from South Korea, so depending on where you are may take some time to get to you but it’s worth it.
I think eyes are really important so both of my picks for makeup (not surprisingly) are for eyes…
Atomy Herbal Hair Conditioner: If you have damaged hair from coloring then this conditioner is amazing. It’s really moisturizing and enriching so even if you don’t color your hair it will make it shinier and healthier.
That article is a bit long, so if you want to go straight to the coupon for Memebox you can check out the new post. In summary you get 10% off of any purchase, whether it’s a beauty box or anything else.

MEMEBox is the leader in korean beauty boxes and has three main boxes. Two of them are for skin and one is for hair. Lets take a look at both. (Get the coupon here)
1) Mask and Study Box – $25
This box is designed for the diligent Korean student who spends a night in studying. But, if you’re going to be in and all alone, you might as well pamper your skin. Here’s what it includes:
Cream Mask Sheets: It comes with 3 of these by It’s Skin. They are a nutrition mask, a moisturizing mask, and a glow cream mask for radiant, dewey skin.

They have a generous 101 day guarantee, but I’ve never returned anything and I doubt you will want to return it either.

YESSTYLE BOXES – Most around $20
There are 2 types of Korean beauty boxes at YestStyle.
Korean Beauty Boxes

The Korean Beauty YesStyle Boxesare a little harder to talk about because they don’t send you the same thing every time. What they do is they randomly pick 10 things including: skin care, makeup, body care, hair care, etc. The brands include:
You’ve probably seen a lot of cute pics of K-pop artists and their phones. Wanting to dress your phone up with style, too? If you want to give it a new look for the new year, you might find just the thing at New Shop. They recently sent me an iPhone 5 case to review, and it was gorgeous:
This case was incredibly beautiful, and just my style! Now, if you’re not into phone cases with peacocks and jewels like me lol, no worries at all, they have all kinds of designs and colors available, as well as sizes for a vast array of phone models. Find your phone’s fashion here!
BB Cream is a must for Kpop stars. As I’m sure you’ve seen, everyone from musicians to the hottest Korean actors use it to give them a natural look that blends in with their skin.
On top of that, BB cream also provides SPF protection and moisturizes. Most Korean makeup artists typically use it as a light foundation for both their female and male clients. There are some BB creams available in the US, by why not get the real deal? Below, you can buy real Korean BB Cream on Amazon for only $17!
I love this video! K.will’s emotional and soulful voice is so moving, and I can see why he might usually sing sad ballads, but it’s so nice to hear a cheerful song from him! I love this happy number: Day 1. The video is so sweet and has a rewarding story! I love Korean high school-inspired outfits, and the female lead (Soyou of Sistar) in this mv was wearing some cute red shoes that caught my eye. If you pause it at 1:31 you can see they’re red Keds with plaid laces. I did some combing through the internet, and (to my great excitement :P) found the same pair! Get them below, and then share your own cute confession stories with us!
