With a range of popular K-Pop merchandise brought to you from South Korea, we are sure that you will find something you love at a great price. We very much enjoy meeting our customers online and wanted the opportunity to meet with you all face to face, and make our items available to you to browse and buy, with the advantage of free delivery. We will also have special offers and discounts. Customers making purchases or picking-up items in the pop-up shop will receive a free raffle ticket and there will be a first prize and a runner up prize!

What can I buy at the LKS pop-up shop?
The short answer is, everything that is in-stock on our online shop at londonkpopstreet.co.uk plus a few extras! Have a look today to plan your purchases. If you are keen to secure your purchase now, then you can buy the item on the website, and choose the free ‘click and collect’ delivery at checkout to pick up your items at the pop-up shop.
If you would like to come and meet us to ask questions before placing orders for Pre-Order or Advance Order items on our online store, we can place these orders for you in the pop-up shop to be delivered to you later once these arrive in the UK.
We will have a range of products available on the day! There will be K-Pop albums from BTS, Stray Kids, NCT, TXT, Enhypen, BlackPink, Mamamoo, Red Velvet, IU and many other artists.
We will also have exclusive BTS Weverse merch, including DVDs of BTS Memories of 2019 and 2020, the latest FESTA 2021 calendar and lyrics books. There will be a selection of BT21 and TinyTan stationary to get us ready to get back to work and studies after the summer break. Come and do your back to school shop with us and support BTS!
Being advocates of Artists and Fan Art, we will bring you unique pieces from our collaborating designers. As dedicated BTS fans ourselves, we will showcase our own designs, based on BTS themes with T-shirts, greetings cards, postcards and hand-made bracelets designed just for ARMY. We will be launching a very special London themed BTS range of merch at the pop-up shop.
In addition to all the above we bring you latest South Korean jewellery trends with our La Bouclette at LKS hand-made bracelets collection, designed exclusively for our customers by the talented and popular South Korean brand.

Who are London Kpop Street and what do we do?
K-pop merch is right up our street!
As dedicated K-pop fans based in London, UK ourselves we had experienced high costs, limited albums being available to purchase and long delivery times, and so we dreamed of enabling wider access to K-pop merchandise to K-pop fans and enthusiasts in the UK, Europe and indeed, around the world. We are pleased to be able to now provide our customers with the opportunity to buy latest items as well as older and rarer items to complete their collections, with reasonable shipping rates and times, with a friendly, reliable shopping experience. We are delighted to have made steady progress with our goals (customer testimonials [www.londonkpopstreet.co.uk/our-testimonials]) and recently launched a customer and member Rewards Programme, which give our customers and members even more benefits. If you would like to join us for advance notice on upcoming items and offers, why not join today [londonkpopstreet.co.uk/rewards-program]!
K-pop community and charity
We are working towards building a community of like-minded people to discuss our shared interests and work together to have a positive impact on the world around us. Over the short time London Kpop Street has been operating, we have built relationships and collaborations with University K-pop Societies, the Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK), fan clubs and artists and performers based in both the UK and South Korea. During the lockdown we hosted our first online charity event, “For the Love of K-pop Charity Concert”, to raise money for NHS Charities Together and the Trussell Trust. We were honoured to have UK K-pop vocal artist Zozo co-host the live show on YouTube.
We are the official sponsors of UCL K-Pop Society and the 2021 Hallyu Con (KCCUK).
K-pop artists and art
We collaborate with UK University K-pop Societies, K-pop dance groups such as LOKO and K-pop vocal artists such Zozo and Leonie to help support K-pop dance and vocal artists. We work with artists and designers such as BlackPhoenix Art and Sew What. We collaborate with South Korean Jewellery brand La Bouclette, who design and hand-make jewellery in the latest Korean fashion trends.
If you are a K-pop themed Artist/Designer/Creator and would like to work with us in future, please do get in touch by email!
London K-pop Street Fan Artwork
As dedicated BTS fans, we were looking forward to their UK concert planned for 2020. To celebrate BTS and the Map of the Soul Concert in the UK we designed our ‘BTS Concert’ collection. The launch of this was delayed by the concert being postponed due to Covid. However, now that there is the possibility of a concert soon, we are delighted to launch our exclusive and unique BTS fanart at the pop-up shop!
Being from a higher education background and being musicians ourselves, many of the concepts BTS advocate resound with us – we strongly believe in striving to be the best we can be, having confidence in our dreams and having love for ourselves as well as for others. Following the design of the ‘BTS Concert’ collection, we produced many other designs to highlight BTS concepts and celebrate the amazing members and their beautiful, meaningful songs. A selection of T-shirts, greetings cards, postcards and hand-made bracelets will be available at the pop-up shop!
We also have produced concert based designs for other bands, and have merchandise with artwork for other K-pop bands, which are planned to be unveiled in the future – please do keep an eye on our Instagram for news on these!
Please stay connected with us for future news by becoming an LKS Member or via our socials.
We very much hope to see you at the pop-up shop on 28 or 29 August 2021, don’t forget to book your visit slot!
