If you're reading this, you're likely already familiar with lightsticks. But for the uninitiated, here's what you need to know: They are the must-have item for K-pop fans.
You can't go to a K-pop concert these days without seeing a stadium full of glowing orbs. Each group's ocean is lit up with their brand-specific lightstick, which vary in design and color across the genre. The styles and names of lightsticks are often influenced by the group's name or fanbase (e.g. the Apink Pandas and BTS Army).
Official lightsticks can be hard to come by as they are sometimes only sold at concerts, and the ones that are for sale from official online retailers are often sold out. Lucky for you, that's why Amazon exists. Read more...More about Entertainment, Gadgets, Music, K Pop, and Mashable Shopping
