Free KPOP Souvenirs

When visiting Korea on a budget, you don’t need to worry about spending a lot on souvenirs – specifically Kpop items! In fact, you can get Kpop or Kdrama items for free. Here are some ideas…
At Incheon Airport, you can get the “Airstar Magazine” for free! You can find them at the food court (where I got both)… I got the one with Jang Dong Gun on the cover in 2010 and the one with Beast just two weeks ago ;p

Airstar Magazines are free at Incheon Airport

At the convenience store, find beverages with your favorite stars on the container like this Caffe Bene coffee with Jang Geun Seuk on one side and Kim Hee Sun on the other side. Sunny, a carbonated beverage brand, features Big Bang on their bottles. A few years ago, the idol group Shinee was on the wrapper of Busheo-Busheo…

Visit movie theaters like Lotte Cinema, CGV and Megabox and find brochures of the movies currently and soon to be shown. I get one or two whenever I visit the theaters… You don’t really need to watch the movie but going to the cinema in Seoul is an experience by itself.

Visit Myeongdong and check the cosmetics and clothing shops. Check out the catalogs that are available for free! I got “The Face Shop” featuring Kim Hyung Joon in Myeongdong.

I love the Basic House catalog with Won Bin! In my book, he’s one of the handsomest Koreans ever!

I got all these postcards for free while checking the stores in Myeongdong! I have more of them but they are stored somewhere.

If you’re a Super Junior fan, you should eat Kyochon chicken. Oh even if you’re not a Suju fan, you should try Korean fried chicken (KFC?)… Kyochon’s garlic chicken is one of my favorites! Plus you get this paper bag with the famous idol group.

Do you have other ideas on how to get free Kpop souvenirs?


  1. Hi,Ms Betchay, I <3 the KHJ- TFS catalogues so much!! Please collect them for me for when I come to Seoul next time, ok?
    LOL!! Wonder when that will be.though!!

    1. Don’t worry Ms. D, whenever I see free KHJ items I’ll get them for you… oh I’m shipping a box to the Philippines next week, isasama ko na yung catalogs.

  2. Wow! I want that Kyochon paperbag!!! Thanks for this post ;p I bookmarked this page para sakto sa pagpunta namin sa korea. May in-allot nga kaming 1 day for fangirling eh. Hehe

    Wow! Ang cool pala talaga jan. Sana makapunta ako sa Korea. Ang una kong pupuntahan ay yung mga lugar na may free Won Bin at Super Junior items. Waaah. Wala pa kasi akong kahit ano na item or souvenir na Won Bin kahit na almost 10 years na akong super fan. Di bale, in the future sana magkaroon din ako šŸ™‚

  4. hahanapin din namin ung kyochon sa pagpunta namin..hehe.. I want the paper bag! thanks for this post..=)
