Fandoms are a key part of the K-Pop industry and one of the many things that distinguish one fandom from another is their lightstick. A lightstick is simply a concert accessory, specially designed for and by a particular artist which the fans can use to show their support during performances. They often have Bluetooth connectivity and can be controlled by the concert officials to create gorgeous effects of light such as the famous "BTS Ocean" and even sync with the light themes of the artists' performances. It is an inherently K-Pop thing and has become inseparable from the same over time. Either way, lightsticks are iconic and will always remain the same.
The Caratbong Version 2 is undoubtedly a super adorable and aesthetically pleasing lightstick that even non-CARAT love. It is simple yet showy and looks very pretty as decoration too!
The DREAMCATCHER lightstick design is derived from the dark, alt-rock, spiritual aesthetic of the group and as such, is even more perfect. There are a few versions of this lightstick but this one takes the cake for being unique and perfectly suited to the group.
Who can forget the iconic Bang Bong, especially since it has been one of the most popular lightsticks of all time? In fact, BIGBANG is often credited for starting the lightstick trend! Any BIGBANG concert turns into a field of flowers with this adorable floral crown design. The Bang Bong version 4 in particular, is really pretty with the contrasting colors.
DAY6 took a different route with their fandom lights and introduced light bands instead of lightsticks. This allows for fans' hands to stay free so they can enjoy without any worries about losing the lightstick or dropping it while the control center for the concert conducts synchronized light effects.
The bird design of the GOT7 lightstick, inspired by their fandom name, iGOT7 or AHGASE, meaning baby bird, is a delicate and adorable design that is close to fans' hearts. The beautiful green color, which is GOT7's official color is soothing to the eyes too.
The TXT lightstick has an old-school gameboy feeling to it and the colorful look easily catches the eye. What is even better is that it looks just as pretty when it is switched off as it does when it is in action.
Though WonHo only recently came out with his official lightstick, it is already drawing attention for how pretty it is. It represents the star that WonHo is and also symbolizes how WENEE are like stars in his sky. The fact that WonHo chose this lightstick after much deliberation is clearly evident in how he looks so proud of it.
ASTRO's lightstick is all about purple glittery goodness. It is simple yet super pretty and the contrasting white and violet shine bright even when they're not in use. We can't take our eyes off of this beauty.
The LOONA lightstick is just a princess's dream. It looks magical and royal, much like something inspired by "Sailor Moon". The white and gold are great choices, especially with the crescent moon at the top.
WOODZ' lightstick is a marvel of design. The colours, blue, white and orange and the graceful logo inside the dome make for just the perfect combination. When in use, it lights up in the most brilliant way and we can't help but gush over it.
All these lightsticks have us wishing we could go back to live concerts. However, until we can, let's all stay home and cheer for our favourite artists with lightsticks in our own rooms.
