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!

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.

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.

 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!
