(SPOT.ph) Unfortunately, no "merch ban" will prove strong enough when faced with your ult group's merchandise. When you're a K-Pop fan, one look at the smiling faces—curse their visuals—on their official posters will have your walls breaking down in record time. No surprises here: instead of looking away and avoiding them as you should, chances are you've already reached out and put them in your cart, whether virtual or digital. Don't give us the "But they reached out to me first!" excuse. No one's going to believe you; We all know you're just too weak for them.
And as if the steel gates of resolution have remained steadfast the past few weeks, okay, days, then here's a blow that's sure to make damage, especially for you Makati peeps. The number one K-Pop store N.Cat Philippines is opening its flagship store in Glorietta, and they're coming in with big discounts.

"Merch ban?" What's that? There will be no such thing when you're inside N.Cat Philippines' flagship store
Make sure to wake up early, channel your inner bias, and sprint to the second level, Annex A, Glorietta 4, Makati on July 30 at 10 a.m. as N.Cat Philippines opens. The first ten customers will get 50% off, while the 11th to 30th in line will have 30% off on their desired K-Pop albums. Don't worry if your alarm didn't go off or you had work to do in the morning (boo!), you'll still get 20% off on all items until the next day, July 31. Take note that there will be a cap of only two discounted albums maximum per person. Other than merchandise, there are also K-style and beauty accessories up for grabs!
We spotted merch including SEVENTEEN's Face The Sun Carat Ver. for P350 from its P700 price tag; BTS' Proof (Standard Ver.) for P1,600 from P3,200; and IU's Lilac for P600 from P1,200. There's even a chance to take home ENHYPEN's Heeseung—erm, we mean a life-size standee of the K-pop star—during your visit. ("How would I even take it home?" You wonder, but that's a thought for future you).
According to their post, there will be queuing numbers distributed starting 10 a.m. exclusively at the Glorietta 1 entrance. And in case you don't know where that specific entrance is—we know how confusing Glorietta can get, a la Hogwarts—it's the one right across SM Makati.
