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!

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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

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 :)

Buy Hanbok | Korean Traditional Wear For Sale in Online Stores

The Korean Hanbok

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.

Check them out here: Antique Alive

Cheaper Hanboks

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.

Jeogori

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.

hanbok-pieces-of-jeogori

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.

Chima

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.

Baji

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.

Gat

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.

lee-jun-ki

Women’s Hanbok

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.hanbok-pieces

Men’s Hanbok

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.

Usage

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 poster 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.

Shopping for Korea Clothes and Kpop Costumes

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 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 clothes onlineKorean Online Shopping Returns

Korea online shoppingFor 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!

Korea’s 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

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.online shop

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.
