Some of the best things that the Hallyu wave brought to India were K-dramas, K-beauty products, and K-pop bands like BTS. The Korean boy band has a huge fan base in the country, and a huge part of the BTS ARMY belongs to India. To honour the same, a dedicated BTS merchandise store has now opened in Mumbai. The official BT21 flagship store has been brought to India through the lifestyle brand, Winterbear a couple of weeks ago.

BT21 sells BTS merchandise globally across different offline stores as well as online. For Indian fans, the only option till now was to get the inventory online, but with the new store in Mumbai, they can easily get their hands on different products instantly. The store has been launched at the Phoenix Marketcity, Mumbai. Winterbear aims to popularise the product line next in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Delhi. A new store will also be launched in Pune on 23 May. Here’s everything we know about the Mumbai store dedicated to the boy band.

BT21 took birth from a collaborative project between the South Korean creative studio, LINE FRIENDS and BTS. The band created eight characters named Tata, Mang, Chimmy, RJ, Koya, Cooky, Shooky and Van back in 2017. Each character represents the members of BTS in some way or the other. BT21 became wildly popular in no time.
