Kpop Kastle held its grand opening on Nov. 12. Located in Davie, it is one of the only stores in Florida selling Korean pop-related merchandise.
“I’ve been traveling for K-pop concerts for the last four years, and I’ve always bought most of my albums in other cities,” says co-owner Megan Adal. “I just kind of got annoyed that there’s nothing down here.”
The store’s employees gave complimentary water bottles to guests waiting outside and raffled out albums to lucky visitors.
Local fans now have a range of K-pop items available for purchase in their area, including official lightsticks, photocards, albums, magazines and apparel.
