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.

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:

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”?

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.

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. So here, I’m going to show you where you can get your own piece of essential Big Bang merchandise: their Version 4 Light Stick!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

 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!
