We’re specially issuing the stamps with pictures of SNSD members, the driving force behind the K-pop boom all over the world.”
The special stamp will be issued as a set in celebration of the fifth anniversary of SNSD’s debut. It includes total fourteen stamps – nine stamps with pictures of each SNSD member from The Boys, SNSD’s third full-length album, with the members’ autographs, and five stamps with SNSD’s album jacket images from Gee and Oh!.
The price of the stamp set is 20,000 won and it can be seen at the Korean Stamp Exhibition, which will be held at 50 post offices all over the nation and COEX from August 9 to 13.
