One of the best kpop fashion comes from a band you may have heard of called BTS. Just kidding, they’re huge and everyone knows who they are. If you look are their style you can definitely see the American rap influences, but modified by the very Korean kpop industry.
There are more American influences in kpop than ever before, however, you can see that that has been the case for a long time. BTS just happens to be the latest. The hats they wear are very nice. In fact, I did a BTS merchandise haul and will likely get around to shooting a video for it soon. For now, I’ll tell you about one of my favorite things about it.
My favorite thing that I got from this merchandise haul was the BTS phone case. A phone case goes with you everywhere. So, it’s a great merch to have if you want to take the boys everywhere with you. The phone case is something you’ll definitely get a lot of use out of.
How often do you use your phone? Like every 3 seconds?
Your phone is practically part of you so having a phone case you love is essential. Also, it helps to protect the phone itself. I’m not talking about those Otterbox, waterproof, crazy military-style cases. You can’t throw this phone case off a bridge and expect the phone to be ok. What I’m talking about is if you just drop your phone on the floor. As long as it’s not too big of a distance that it fell your phone case might protect it enough to where the phone is ok. I know that I’ve dropped my phone a few times to where I’m certain that if it didn’t have the case on it, it would have definitely broken the phone. It would have a least cracked the screen.
You can also get one of these super hard covers for just the glass. This won’t show anyone your BTS fandom, but it’ll protect your phone :p
The phone case I got has a picture of all the boys from BTS (until they go into the army) L currently and is a nice way to show off your fandom. There’s no mistaking who I think is the best kpop band in the world when someone sees my phone case. This is assuming they know who they are. And if someone doesn’t know who they are, I probably can’t be friends with them anyway. Here’s a look at some other stuff I’m considering: http://btsmerchandise.com/
The phone case that I got is the BTS members with a pink background. I think It may be from one of the artworks that come with an album. I’m not sure, because I only have their albums digitally. I thought about having the hard cd copy, too. But, I’ll have to save up for that.
My phone case has some nice cushy edges so that in case I drop it, it’ll be ok. This is a really nice feature of the phone case that I wasn’t expecting because I couldn’t see it on the picture on the website I bought it from. But, once you get it in person it’s obviously pretty sturdy. That’s a nice surprise!
Overall, I’m very happy with everything that I bought and the case has held up nicely after a week. You can usually tell the quality after about a week. By then, you’ll see what it’s made of and how resilient it is to scratches and dings. This one’s doing great in that regard, so I couldn’t be happier!
Hot Topic is a great place to get band merch.
So, there you have it. That’s my favorite item from my BTS merchandise haul this time. My favorite is the phone case. I also got some t-shirts, a notebook, 1 or 2 posters. The posters look awesome, but I haven’t had a chance to put them up yet. I need to make some space on my wall first, but it’s hard to decide who to take down! I want them all! I may start putting them up with just a bit of overlap. OR, I could maybe figure out a way to take a couple down and store them for later. Every time I take a poster down, though, the pate gets stuck on it somewhere and messes it up, but I’m sure that if I’m careful I can do it anyway. I may try cutting the tape with some scissors before I pull the poster off the wall and things get crazy. I’ll let you know how it goes!
