GFSquad Project - GFRIEND 2nd Anniversary Coal Wreath!

Thanks to your kindness and generosity, we've surpassed our goal! Congratulations, Buddies!

We'll continue to accept donations until Jan. 5, 2017. More donations equal more people helped. Lots of Love Buddies!

2016 GFRIEND 2nd Anniversary

GFRIEND 2nd Anniversary Coal Wreath by GFSquad

GFS is excited to announce the details of our first official project as a fansite. 

As winter is quickly approaching, we will be raising money for a coal wreath that we will deliver to GFRIEND. 

For those of you who don't know, coal briquettes are used in Korea to keep houses warm and for cooking. Many elderly or rural people rely on these for a source of warmth during the cold months. By contributing to our project, you will be making sure people who cannot always afford coal will stay warm this winter! 

Since this is our first project and we are unsure of how much we can raise as a group, we will start modest. We're planning to purchase a coal wreath from dreame.co.kr, a site that sends support rice wreaths, coal wreaths, and many other things in the name of idols, actors/actresses, and other celebrity icons in Korea. 

 

Our initial donation goal will be $250.00USD.

For more details on how to donate, please see the announcement! Thank you Buddies!

GFRIEND DC INSIDE GALLERY 2nd Anniversary Support Project
"You haven’t seen half of half of half of an amazing world, GFRIEND will show you"
(T/N: Translations of hangul phrase at the poster based from LOL lyrics)

 

Hello Buddies~! GFRIEND DC GALLERY is here to announce their wonderful project for GFRIEND's 2nd year debut anniversary.

For those who are not aware about DC GALLERY it's a Korean open community somewhat like reddit or OneHallyu. That community has a section for GFRIEND. They also lend some tutorials in English to support GFRIEND during their comeback and during MAMA 2016. 

Here is the link of their projects for GFRIEND since debut: http://gall.dcinside.com/board/view/?id=gf&no=605054

They are here to share their project to Buddies all over the world and I hope that we, I-Buddies can show lots of love and support for their project.

They will use an upgrade quality and version of that clay figure.

Sites to buy/pre-order

23 posts in this topic

Hey :)

Making this thread to resume sites where you can buy/pre-order the albums :)

Remember: Only sites with Hanteo logo ( hanteo.JPG ) sells albums that will count on Hanteo.

Kpoptown - Very known, has a nice package and the album is only $16.90 there. The shipping is a bit expensive and the shipping value is calculated by weight (the more you buy, the more it will cost). Pre-order/Buy here.

Kpopmart - Probably the most used site. The package is very protected (they usually put a stick so the album will stay still and not bounce inside) , they also send you a photo of the package before sending (not sure if they always to it but I have seen people talking about it). The shipping is very expensive (starts from $10 and goes to $30 depending of the method and is per item) but is very trustworthy. The album is $17.90. Pre-order/Buy here.

Yesasia - You have free shipping on orders over $39 BUT the albums there are expensive. The album is $33 (even tho it comes with 2 posters but isn't worth compared to other sites). Pre-order/Buy here

Ktown4u - Not so used but growing fast. They have a nice price/quality/shipping. The album is $20. The shipping starts on $6 and goes up to $18 (depending of the method and is per item, they also offer you many methods so you can get a shipping with tracking but taking 30 days to arrive and is very cheap). Pre-order/Buy here.

GMarket - Some people buys from it because you have Synnara there. From youtube unboxing videos that I watched, it comes well sealed and protected. The album is $17.33. The shipping will depend of your country (I'm from somewhere in Europe and the shipping was $40 and would take up to 30 days). Pre-order/buy here.

Be aware that prices goes up and down every day, even almost in few hours a day. The prices I mention here were seen when the pre-order option started. :)

Do pre-orders count on Hanteo? I swear I always see "this group has X number of pre-orders" but then the Hanteo numbers often say otherwise.

I didn't find info about that but since they send the date to Hanteo every day, I guess it may count? :/

Pre ordered it from kpoptown today (my first ever kpop album buy) need to support the girls this time for real they deserve it ^^ i dislike the album covers tho which they had it different and abit more creatively detailed and asthetic to attract more ppl and some ppl might literally jugde the album by its cover and not buy it because of the cheap design.. oh well. Abit worried to if it will end up in decent condition since it will be shipped all the way to Norway but atleast the Gfriend ship is sailing :P

Thanks for doing this!

Just a heads-up for anybody still shopping around. It looks like Ktown4u dropped their price to $17.44. Their prices change daily, though, so it might be different in a few hours.. lol

Many unboxing reviews I watch are from distant countries and the products arrives very nice. They actually take good care of it :) of course something can happen but is not usually. ^^

This is true, shops like Kpoptown and especially Kpopmart use tonnes of bubblewrap to protect your albums. Kpopmart also take the bubblewrapped albums to the box itself so it won't move around in the box and risk getting damaged while in transit.

Here is the thing.

There are two charts, Hanteo and Gaon.

Hanteo counts individual albums that are sold. Gaon counts store shipments rather than individual albums. So, let's say a store orders 100 albums. Gaon will count that as 100 albums sold. But let's say only 90 of those 100 albums are sold. Hanteo will count only 90 albums as sold. 

 

So your individual pre-order should count on Hanteo, most sellers also make it count on Gaon, but that is not always the case. 

 

For those interested in the cheapest site: CatchopCD.net has the cheapest KPop albums, however, GFriend's album will not be available until a few days after July 11 (Day of release). But it is cheaper. Snowflake costed around $11.47 there. Shipping changes depending on weight, including shipping Snowflake costed like $18.46
