Album Unboxing #12: "Love Yourself: Tear" by BTS (Y, O, U, R Versions)

Hello, everybody! Today I have another album unboxing for you guys! How surprising. BUT. At least this one will be a bit longer of a post. I don't know what self control is so I bought four versions of the same album because that's all that I know how to do, buy all versions of things and not regret anything.

ANYWAY, Let's get this album unboxing started because oh, boy, there's kind of a lot.

So this is the quick overview of the four albums I pre-ordered from Choice Music LA! I've never ordered anything from them in the past but I've always heard fabulous reviews about their service and fast shipping for albums so I decided to pre-ordered my albums through them. And I'm so happy with how quickly I received my albums! As a small sneak peek, I also pre-ordered two more albums from them since receiving these babies in the mail so that unboxing will be coming up soon!

So first we'll be starting off with the 'Y' version of BTS's new album, "Love Yourself: Tear"! I'm so excited about this album, y'all, you have no idea. I freaking loved the first installment of this album series so this one I was so excited for. Anyhoo, let's jump right in.

I received a photocard of my bias for this version *cries in 10 languages* so that was a good start.

I'm not sure what each photo concept for each version is called but this concept is very pleasing to eye. I love the selected saturated colors that this photo concept had and how pretty the sunset scenes were. It was really relaxing so I'm a fan of it. Also, can we talk about that group photo? Like, yes, friendship goals. 


Now onto the next version! This one is the 'O' version and yes, the designs look similar but it's different, OKAY. Anyway, this is the photocard I got with this version of the album and it makes me so happy to slowly see my photocard collection of BTS growing bit by bit. 

This photo concept is probably my favorite? Maybe? I personally just love black and white photos so this concept was right up my alley. Plus, the pops of colors from the colored photos sprinkled throughout was a nice touch. 
And once again, that group photo though. LIKE, UM YES. 


Now, we have the third version of this album, the 'U' version. Okay, so, this is the photocard and though it's not of my bias wrecker . . . I was SO HAPPY. It's so pretty, oh my goodness, I could stare at it for hours.

ANYWAY, this concept is of actual angels. You cannot convince me otherwise, THEY LOOK SO PRETTY *cries in corner*. Now this photobook I looked it very closely and methodically. Took my time, stared lovingly. Okay moving on.

Now, the final fourth version of the album, the 'R' version. Can we just talk about this photocard as well? It's so cute, I can't!

Okay, this photo concept is for sure one of my favorites. Maybe even my top one. Now this one I also took my time looking through, mainly of my bias but that's not the point. I looked through all of them just as lovingly . . . I just took a little more time looking through the photos of my bias. That's all I'm saying. 

Also, this group photo. I know I keep saying that but this one. OMG. Why so pretty?


And now for some of the freebies I received from Choice Music LA! I'm assuming this was a gift for having pre-ordered the albums through them and I was pleasantly surprised! I got these lovely four postcard size photo cards and I LOVE THEM! The paper is cardstock and it has such a nice rough texture to it, I just love them and am so happy that they're a part of my collection now!

And lastly, there are these freebie photo cards I got as well! They're just a tiny bit smaller than the photocards I got with the albums but they're made of the same cardstock paper which is lovely. Each photocard is from one of the different concepts so that was also nice, very nice!

I also got these really cool standing photo cards with each album! I don't exactly need four of them but I mean, if I lose one or damage one, I have back-ups right?


Lastly, here are the posters from each album concept! I wasn't really sure if all the posters I received were gonna be different or the same but I'm happy I got all four. Not that I hang my posters, goodness knows I have so many already, but they're nice to have I guess!




And here is the overview of all the things I got! All four versions of the albums, the standing photo cards, the album photo cards, and just for funzees, the connecting pattern design of the albums.

I hope you guys enjoyed this album unboxing and hopefully it was interesting for you guys to read. Thanks so much for reading this post if you did and until next time, see you guys in the next chapter!

Album Unboxing #11: "Just Right" by GOT7

HELLO, EVERYONE. SO. I have not been blogging AT ALL these past few weeks because life said "LOL, I'm here". Anyway, I quickly wrote up this post for you guys because I need to post SOMETHING. I plan on getting more variety for my blog but for now, please bare with me with yet ANOTHER album unboxing. I promise I'll get something interesting up, but for now, please enjoy this post! 


OKAY, let's just get this thing started.

Here we have probably the happiest looking album that has ever existed. I mean look at it, you can't NOT feel happy just looking at. I freaking love how bright and happy this album is on the outside so I was pretty darn excited to open everything up to see just what it contained.

Upon taking off the plastic wrapping, I slipped out the three photo books that come inside. One is blue, another is pink and the last is a bright happy yellow.

I was a little shook by having three things to look through so it took me a minute to actually comprehend it. SO. Sorry, but my baby brain couldn't function with that.

OKAY, so here is a better and up close view of the photo books. I seriously love how cute everything was, like OMG. The three photo books had different images on the covers and personally, I have to say the cover image for the pink photo book is my favorite. I just want to squeeze them in a big, warm hug! It's also nice that they were numbered on the back even though I don't think I looked through them in that order, but moving on.

Inside the blue photo book, we have the album CD itself along with the track listing.

But can we talk about that bright yellow CD? It's adorable. Actually, adorable. I don't understand how a flipping CD can be so cute. I'M DONE.

Here we have the hot pink photo book that just has a bunch of cute pictures of the group which was really fun for me to look through. I definitely loved this cute group photo in the book the most but all the pictures were really nice and happy and made me feel good inside.

And now the last photo book in all its bright yellow glory! This one is filled with single shots of the members and is just as cute as the other two photo books!

It did hurt my eyes a tiny bit because of the bright yellow color but apart from that, it was an adorable photo book to flip through and once again, was adorable. This entire concept is just too freaking cute. You probably get the point by now so let's just leave it at that.

And lastly, THE PHOTO CARDS! I was SO happy to have gotten a postcard of my second favorite member and, of course, a photo card of my bias! The images are just SO CUTE, I'm crying *sobs in the corner*. I left the post card inside the album for safe keeping as I don't have any page sleeves to put in my photo card binder for my larger photo cards so maybe one of these days, I'll get some two-pocket sleeves for my larger photo cards and postcards to put in my binder. This album also didn't come with a poster so that's all I have for you guys today.

I hope you guys enjoyed this little album unboxing and until next time, see you in the next chapter!

Album Unboxing #10: "The Connect: Deja Vu" by Monsta X

Hello, everyone! I hope you guys are having a fantastic day so far! Okay, since I have literally no inspiration this week for something fun to actually post, I'm just going to throw yet another album unboxing at you guys. YOU'RE WELCOME. Sorry if these posts are getting too frequent and kind of annoying but I really enjoy making these posts and this is my most recent addition to my collection of albums and I am VERY excited to finally be writing this unboxing post.

So, without any further ado, let's get right into this unboxing!

OKAY, so here is the beautiful new album by one of my favorite kpop groups, MONSTA X! I was so freaking excited to FINALLY get this album in the mail a few weeks ago, so I apologize for just now posting this. It's been a stressful and LOOOONNNGGGG couple of weeks. But ALAS, the album is here!! I'm so excited! Just look at the cover! OMG! 

Okay, so upon opening up the album, the first thing I see is obviously the title page which is simple yet it still somehow amazed me. I don't know who I am anymore.

And can we just talk about the spine on this thing? Like, how does it look so cool? It's literally just the spine of the album and yet it still looked so cool!

And now here is the inside of the album. The picture on the furthest right is the cover for their photobook inside the album, the middle picture is simply just a close up picture of the photobook, and the last picture is just a picture of the CD. I really loved the packaging of this album, I feel like their albums always have such cool concepts and designs. I think one of the main reasons why I love their music and concepts is how much of an edgy/sci-fi style they have. It just speaks to me.

Here is a couple of pictures of the pocket within the album which held a few little goodies inside.

There's also a picture of one of the flaps of the album. Just look how FLIPPIN COOL IT IS!! It feels so mysterious and like, "important" if that makes sense?

These are the goodies that came in the album! There were four photo cards inside, folded nice and neat inside this little folded up poster, and lastly, a single photocard of one of the members! I really love how this poster looks and I'm kind of tempted to hang it up on my wall. But, let's move onto the photocards because I was really excited to have gotten the ones I got.

So as I said, there were four photocards in total and here are pictures of both the fronts and backs of them all.

I seriously love how they always look like playing cards on the back, it's just so cute and cool and unique!

As for the photcards, I got two singles of two of the members, a group photo and finally a photocard with two members. They're just so adorable I couldn't handle myself when I got them. Yet more photocards to add to my collection!

And this one is the little single photo card that came in the album as well. On the back it has this really cool design. I'm not really sure what the little clock means or if any of the clocks are suppose to mean something but I was loving how cool everything was. You're actually suppose to pop out the little photocard in the middle but I freaking love how it looks as one big photocard so I'm not going to do that. I was happy when I got my bias wrecker to be honest! I wasn't even mad. Nope, not one bit!

And these are a couple of other photocards that came with the album.

Now these I don't think were supposed to come with the album and I'm thinking were little freebies from the seller I bought from. I've purchased albums from them before and have received sticker sheets and bonus cards before as little freebies so I was very happy to have gotten these as well. They're both group pictures and are also little gift tags! I have a few of these for other groups so I was happy to get more, even though I'll probably never actually use them.

And here is a little sneak peak into the photobook inside the album! I really loved this concept for their new album and I will hopefully be able to buy the other three versions of the album. I know that's a bit excessive but I haven't yet decided. I do have plenty of other albums I want to get my hands on so for now, we're going to just play it by ear and see what happens.

And FINALLY, THE POSTER!! This is hands down my favorite poster I have of Monsta X so far! It's just so aesthetically pleasing and again, I kind of want to hang this one up on my wall even though I don't like posters. I just can't decide and need help, obviously. Anyhoo, that's everything that came with the album!

ALSO . . .

I'm going to be attending their concert this JULY!!!!! I literally couldn't be more excited!! I decided last minute to try getting tickets to the concert and I was so happy that there were still a few available and I was able to purchase mine quickly and easily! I'm so happy to be going and of course, I'm going to write a post on everything including pictures, video, and whatever else I can think of once the concert comes around. I'm seriously so excited for July!

Okay, so that's it, my lovelies! I really hope you guys enjoyed this post! Until next time, see you in the next chapter!
