Chingu Dachi in Manila: Fans Go Crazy Over Official K-pop Merchandise

K-pop fans rejoice! Chingu Dachi has finally opened and it is every fan’s dream come true as the store sells all kinds of merchandise, official and fan-made.

Located in Parañaque City, it may be a trek for fans coming from the North – but it’s worth the trip! So much so that during the soft opening of the store, the store was packed and had fans waiting outside excited to get their hands on the merchandise.

With regards to official items, fans can look forward to purchasing authentic signed albums, light sticks, posters, photo cards, official postcards, concert merchandise, merchandise from their companies and brands, magazines, and other rare and discontinued items.

In fact, if they don’t have something that you want from Korea or Japan, they can buy it and have it brought over here for you with minimal fees.
