A Kpop Lightstick is a symbol of unity and support to fans' favorite artists, and is an essential item when attending Kpop concerts, or other events cheering for your favorite group. Even for fans that are unable to attend concerts, it is a collectible item with symbolic meaning of emotional support for their favorite artists.
Each lightstick design is unique to the group, demonstrating the group's logo and fandom colors so that people will know even from far away which group the lightstick represents.
With advancement of technology, most Kpop Lightsticks have now evolved to having bluetooth functionality, in which fans can pair the lightstick with official apps on their phone and change the fanlight's colors. In Kpop concerts, this allows the fans to enter seat numbers at the venue and the concert director can control all lightsticks simultaneously creating gorgeous lighting effects in unison (called the "Kpop Ocean"). Each lightstick may also have an official name (e.g. BTS' lightstick is called the "Army Bomb", Twice's lightstick is called the "Candy Bong", etc). As technology and designs evolve, a group may have several versions of lightsticks. For example, BTS' Army Bomb currently has 3 versions and a special edition version, and Astro Lightstick ("Robong") currently has 2 versions.
