    My korean cousin

    LITERALLY BOUGHT LIKE 500 COPIES OF LY:ANSWER (PRE-ORDERED)
    she also bought me my chicago tour tickets
    and she KEEPS ON SENDING ME GOD DAMN MERCH
    she says
    "oh it's only a little bit"
    i had to give some of them away BECAUSE MY ROOM IS TOO STUFFED

    her parents are super rich (but i mean my cousin is nice---) and they are considering buying a place in hannam the hills
    and she was like to me "oh it's no big deal~ it's just some apartment place"
    and i'm over here with my broke ass
    "....just some apartment place~ huH????"

    like boi how can she continue to afford all this bts merch and go to concerts and fansigns and still maintain a stable bank account and school life

    koreans are superpeople wow

    500 copies?! What could you possibly do with 500 copies of the same album with the same songs!

    I'd rather buy 500 different albums from 500 different groups honestly.

    Just wire the money to your bias directly. He will get more that way.

    I believe it has something to do with fan meetings or just plain support.

    I wish I was rich too!
    :waterr:
    It's how most Korean fansigns work. You can't buy tickets. If you want to get a ticket and see them/talk to them up-close and personal, you need to buy a lot of albums to get your name into the ticket lottery. It's a game of luck, but the more you buy, the higher the chances. Usually people say you're guaranteed to win a ticket if you buy 100+ copies.
    It's a strange tradition, but I guess it makes it more fair since it helps make sure the same people can't just buy their way in every time or smth...

    I know that, but I heard BTS weren't promoting this album. They were going to drop it and embark on their tour, with no promotions on shows or any fansigns, so the fansign theory in this case is mulch.

    I heard the fansigns are just gonna take place later. You sure they're gonna skip fansigns completely for the album?

    I don't know the specifics. Maybe, but they're definitely touring first.

    I still think it's a ridiculous waste of money to buy 100+ albums.

    merch here in korea is decently cheaper than what international fans are used to ... also, unless it's like actual bighit made merch, people here sell like their own kpop idol merch they designed or another idol goods company manufactured,,

    Damn. Giveaways and trading. There are plenty of fans that are in a financial bond and would love to receive an album if she doesn't already have a plan for what to do with 500 copies of the same album.
