MY MAIN SHOPS
I made this page because I know that it can be hard to find trustworthy, reliable shops for kmusic albums, merchandise, and goods. These are shops that I personally use so I can say that my experience with them has been great. Some probably know me by name and address now, at this point, but that's another matter entirely. 👀
I live and breathe this shop. They have SO many album selections from classics and lesser known artists to brand new releases and pre-orders. The album prices are low but they are based in Korea, however, so be aware the shipping will be higher if you're in the US.
This shop is located in the US so the shipping is less startling than international shops. They have a good range of more recent albums and offer pre-orders, as well.
This is another US based shop. I feel like their catalogue is a little less expansive than Kave Square but they do usually have all of the new releases and pre-orders available. They also have a lot of exclusive shopping opportunities and fancalls/fansign chances.
Albums, magazines with your faves, official merch, even some jpop selections are available at this shop. This shop is another US based shop, just in case that is important to you! I really love this shop for the magazines; they seem to be one of the better shops I've seen that stock a variety of titles and artists.
Choice Music LA
Another US shop (as the name would give away), the catalogue for this one is a bit small. Things tend to sell out quickly here but if you need to snag a Japanese release, they usually have them. They do also usually have the newest pre-orders available and the newer releases in addition to official goods and merch. They might have some magazines with really big names on the cover and some phonebooks in stock, too, so check those out.
Surprisingly a great place to find some harder-to-snag albums. They also have a good selection of Japanese albums!
LEGIT. REAL. SIGNED. ALBUMS.
You don't have to worry if it's a scam, if you bought a fake sign on eBay, whatever. If you have patience (since they usually take a month or so to arrive) and remember to check the site often enough, you can snag some good ones.
An actual physical location and an online shop, this store has everything from albums to official goods like Dreamcatcher's hand creams and BTS' XYLITOL collab.
Things are getting better and better, little by little, with Weverse Shop. I prefer to use them when I can (if what I want isn't found on one of the previously mentioned sites) because it's guaranteed to be legit.
This is a good site for merch and goods. I noticed the price is a little higher, compared to Weverse Shop for example, since it seems they partnered with HYBE Labels the most often, but it can come in handy if Weverse sells out quickly.
An international site, this shop really allows you to buy um.. everything? You can get lost on this site for HOURS. Music from China, Japan, and Korea is accessible as well as movies, dramas, and other goods.
