As we all know I’m going through it lately and am approximately this close to killing myself therefore can u pls accept my Kpop posts & not hate me for them because I know not everyone finds them interesting BUT I’m really sad right now and Kpop makes me happy so 💜 thank u for letting me talk about it. love u.
Anyway on a lighter note welcome to part 2 of my Kpop signed album haul!
Click here for Part 1 – BTS, GOT7, SHINee.
In this post I’m going to show you the GOT7 (yes, I bought another one), NCT and SEVENTEEN albums I bought because again, I need to scream about them. Enjoy!
Regulate 1st Repackaged Signed Promo Album
Could my bank account afford to buy this album? No. Did I still go ahead and buy it anyway? Maybe. I love my children and so when I saw this there was no way I was going to keep scrolling and pretend I hadn’t seen it because I needed it in my life. This is a signed promo version of NCT 127’s first album repackage, Regulate, and each version has a different member on the dust jacket so I chose the Taeil version because well, like I said, I love my children. It also came with a Taeil photocard which is a bonus and in general everything about the whole album is so beautiful – it’s about the same size as a vinyl record cover and everything about it is so well made, it really is a piece of art. NCT 127 are one of my favourite Kpop groups and so naturally I really wanted to own this. There are all different types of album packages out there but I really love the bigger ones with the huge photo booklets etc, and so NCT definitely didn’t disappoint – the photo booklet in this is so high quality and beautiful, not to mention the fact that the songs on the actual album itself are 10/10 and I’m obsessed with all of them, this really is an amazing album and I love everything about it – I’m so grateful I own this! It really is a masterpiece.
Identity Fan Signed Album
So this album is a little bit different because A). It’s not a promo version (just a regular retail version) and B). Its signatures are from a fan sign.
Identity was GOT7’s first full length (Korean) album and so I thought it would be a nice thing to own to start off the collection if I decided to buy anymore of their signed albums in the future which if you’re not already aware, I did (hello KPOP signed album haul part one). The signatures in this are from a fan sign event which is basically like a meet and greet for a specific album / EP / etc. – you buy the album and then go up to the members to get it individually signed – this has everyone’s signatures apart from Jackson’s but I don’t mind because this was such a steal- the second I saw this I knew I had to buy it. Each message is written to the person who was having their album signed but again, I don’t mind because it was a good price and I thought it was nice to own little messages they’d written rather than just their signatures on the front of the album. Also, the photos make me smile because they were so young. Literal babies !! The cutest.
You Made My Dawn Signed Album (Dawn ver.)
This again is just a regular retail version of the You Made My Dawn album (Dawn version) which was randomly signed by one member of Seventeen and I got Seungkwan! I bought this album through a promo Seventeen were doing hence why I didn’t know who I was getting until I opened the package – some people prefer to have their albums signed by all members but I honestly don’t mind when it’s a random member sign either since it’s always exciting to open because you don’t know who you’ll get. Of course, it came with the extras like the sticker, lenticular, poster, photo cards etc. so it was so nice to open – this was the first signed Kpop album I ever actually bought and so it was such a nice experience. Everything was so cute !!
I didn’t even know you could officially buy signed Kpop things online until my friend showed me the website and told me to check it out and I was like, how did I not know about this?? Any idols that have just released albums and / or are making a comeback will sell signed albums on the website and at the time there were currently 4 artists who were selling albums and Seventeen was one of them. (They also have a list of all the previous signed albums they’ve sold which are now sold out and I was freaking out a little bit due to all of the people I’d already missed out on but we won’t talk about that).
Korean albums are a little different to Western ones – to us, an album is literally a CD in a plastic case with a 3 page booklet in the front if we’re lucky.
Not in Kpop.
Kpop albums are wild, you’re literally buying a whole masterpiece. A whole ass package. Like I said, this is the first Kpop album I actually bought but I’d seen them before online and there’s so much included it’s hard to figure out where to start – It’s all randomly selected so you don’t know which member/s you’re going to get so I was so happy when I got a photo card of my lil Minghao (honestly I would’ve bought the whole album just for that).
I ended up trading all of my things for my faves anyway so here’s what it now looks like –
And there we have it!
All my love,
