A grand launch was held last August 20, 2022, to showcase what the store has to offer to its guests, k-pop fans, and, of course, the armys. 

PH.Apobangpo is not your average k-pop store as it is dedicated to the phenomenal South Korean boy group, BTS!

This BTS-themed pop-up store is a first of its kind in Cebu and has its name derived from “Army Forever” and “Bangtan Forever.”

As a licensed distributor of BTS merch in Cebu, PH.Apobangpo sells TinyTAN Dynamite Diffuser and other items you can add to your collection. | How to get there?

With exclusive and licensed merch on hand—from tote bags, diffusers, novelty shirts, photocards, different coffee flavors, and more-splurging on any BTS-related item or completing a BTS collection is now effortless. 

The person behind PH.Apabangpo is Ritty Kim-Tseng, an official army whose bias is Jimin. Aside from being a fangirl, this lady boss also had her fair share of struggles in conceptualizing a brand that would cater to the high demand of avid fans in Cebu.

Despite everything in between, the pop-up store has been successfully opened for everyone to visit and experience. It is a testament of Kim’s hard work in bringing what Cebuano armys deserve without having to travel long hours to Luzon to buy official merch.

Besides BTS-related items, army or not, anyone can enjoy treats like the different coffee flavors being sold at PH.Apobangpo’s physical store in SM Seaside City Cebu. | How to order?

PH.Apobangpo also has its eye on expanding to Mindanao. According to Kim-Tseng, they plan to open more stores in big cities like Davao in a few months time.

There are many things to look forward to from PH.Apobangpo. As the store grows, it will soon accommodate more k-pop groups apart from BTS and sell their merch in the store for different fandoms to indulge in.

PH.Apobangpo sells everything BTS-related including Dicon, one of Korea’s magazine brands featuring popular k-pop idols. | Get one today!

For now, head to PH.Apobangpo store in Cebu for the chance to grab some treats and enjoy their grand opening exclusive perks!
