Where to Buy KPop Albums and Merch in Cebu?

It really is a struggle for international fans whenever Kpop idols have a comeback as we don’t have the same accessibility as the Korean stans on their albums. We cannot just walk to any music store and immediately find them displayed there.

For Filipino stans, especially Cebuanos, it is especially difficult. Now that many of our Kpop idols like the confident queens ITZY, the hot vocals SEVENTEEN, and even the OG’s Super Junior and Girl’s Generation had their comeback, it is a must that we know where to find their albums.

You might have already gone in on this pretty store. N.Cat is Korea’s #1 accessory store, so Filipinos do love to come here for accessory fashion trends like jewelry, bags and novelty items, but did you know that they also sell Kpop albums here?

At the top of the Korean wave, Kpop idols often top the music charts in the Philippines. Their albums though are hard to find which is why N. Cat is a stan’s paradise for they have K-Pop merch, official K-Pop albums and even BT21 merch.
