In addition, they will also have a ‘Square Up’ game zone where the fans can play different games to earn points. At the end, fans will receive a stamp for passing through each zone, and receive gifts upon completion.

Besides the gifts at the actual store, fans may upload a picture of the pop-up store on SNS with hashtags #BLACKPINKAREA_SQUAREUP and #YGSELECT_PICTALK to enter a competition to win BLACKPINK’s official lightstick or signed CD.
