I realize that this is my third Kpoptown order review, but I wanted to review this company based on the different merchandise I ordered to show variation in delivery speed, packaging and quality.
This is my second time pre-ordering from Kpoptown, and last time it took 4 weeks since its release date to arrive at my doorstep. This time I have two separate packages coming: the photobook and the additional poster, shipped in a poster tube.
To my pleasant surprise, my packages shipped on the dawn of May 16th, just a day after its official release. And now, my first package has arrived! On the 30th, exactly two weeks after being shipped, my photobook came in a plastic envelope lined with bubble wrap.
Inside, the photobook is protected by a thin layer of bubble wrap. Nothing was damaged and I'm quite happy with the product!
And my poster has finally arrived, on June 3rd! It took about 2.5 weeks since I had ordered it, which is still pretty fast shipping.
My poster came in a sturdy cardboard poster tube about 2 feet tall. The poster itself is slightly damaged at the side near the corner, just like my New Challenge poster. But I think this is because the poster fits just perfectly into the tube and the metal cap at the end has to crinkle the poster a bit to secure the end.
