ATTENTION ALL BTS ARMY! The official Twitter account of HYBE Merch announced the launch of an exclusive BTS POP-UP: PERMISSION TO DANCE event in Seoul, running from 10/22 – 11/21. For those who don’t yet know, the company formerly known as ‘Bighit’ changed their name to ‘HYBE’ earlier this year. The pop-up features a unique exhibition, devoted to their most recent global hit, ‘Permission to Dance.’ What’s more, it is the perfect opportunity to snap up some one-of-a-kind BTS goodies! So what are you waiting for? Let’s go!
The pop-up store is located in Seongsu, near Exit 3 of Line 2 Seongsu Station in Seoul.

Unlike previous BTS pop-ups, the permission to dance pop-up requires no prior booking or reservation! That’s right, just show up at your convenience, check in via QR code and have a body temp. reading — for COVID-19. Additionally, everyone who attends the pop-up will receive a gorgeous ticket as their first free souvenir.
A Sneak Peek…
Now, I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but here are a few sneak peeks of what the pop-up store looks like!
As well as merchandise available for purchase and a themed photobooth, there are outfits on display that were actually worn by BTS themselves. Amazing right?
Personally, I thought that the merchandise was quite overpriced. However, I guess that is to be expected for a limited time event such as this. That being said, the quality of the clothing and designs were great. If you’re shopping for souvenirs, this would certainly be a good choice! Moreover, I recommend buying the clothing or phone accessories over the snacks because then, you’ll have a long-lasting item. I ended up getting a tumbler for 6,900 KRW.
Besides shopping, photos are an absolute must. The interior design of the pop-up is like a giant photo zone, perfect for your next Instagram post. If you’re on a budget or trying to avoid spending money, I still advise you to visit the BTS POP-UP: PERMISSION TO DANCE because entry is completely free! What’s more, at the very least you will head home with a beautiful ticket to encapsulate your memories.
So, fellow ARMYs, get going to the BTS POP-UP: PERMISSION TO DANCE as there are only a few days left of the event! And spend wisely….
