Budol time, ARMYs and Carats: The BTS and SEVENTEEN ‘In The Soop’ pop-up store is fangirl heaven
Ready for another budol, ARMYs and Carats?
The “In The Soop” pop-up store, a fangirl haven in SM Mall of Asia based on BTS and SEVENTEEN’s reality shows of the same name, has opened its doors to fans on July 1. As mentioned by the online booking platform MorningKall on its website, the pop-up will run until October 1.
The interior of the pop-up store can be described as a callback to the forest, which means soop in Korean, that was featured in the reality series. After all, the store is based on their light-hearted moments while getting in touch with nature.
The “In The Soop” store features various BTS and SEVENTEEN-inspired merchandise, such as hoodies, t-shirts, sweaters, pajamas, notepads, bucket hats, picture frames, pens, stuffed toys, and more.
As soon as you enter, you’ll be welcomed by a sea of Bangtan and Sebong goodies and highlights from In The Soop. A dramatic tent-like canopy is the store’s opening act, with picnic tables and benches containing various merch.
It’s hard to miss out on the In The Soop-inspired merch, particularly the adorable Soopy and his guitar. But if you’re in the mood to channel your inner camper, fans can also get their hands on items perfect for an outdoor getaway.
The store also sells must-have items in shades of rose quartz, serenity, and purple — BTS and SEVENTEEN’s official colors, of course.
The store also features a Permission To Dance-inspired wall which is said to be one of the themes for the next batch of fangirl finds. Similar to the BTS’ “Map In The Soul” pop-up store, the theme of merchandise changes every week.
Before visiting, fans are required to reserve their slots at MorningKall’s official site beforehand although walk-ins are allowed. Only 30 guests are allowed inside.
