Recently a pop-up store opened for a character that Baekhyun designed: Teolaegi.
Even non-fans loved the pop-up store’s cute aesthetic and design.
- It’s so cute…
- Please sell the giant-raegi… I’m weeping daily because I couldn’t buy it two years ago…
- It’s f*cking cute, crazy… Where is that? I want to go.
- Gasp, I’m not even a fan but I want to go… I can’t believe that’s an official MD doll. The quality is so cute…
- I want to have it… It’s objectively cute.
- I’m not a fan but I bought a few just cuz it’s so cute.
- It’s really cute… But the mole is increasingly looking like a watermelon seed LOL.
And Baekhyun also surprised fans by organizing a group order for his favorite brand of socks after fans expressed an interest in them.

Fans were grateful for Baekhyun’s continual attempts to create meaningful moments for his fans.
All baekhyun wanted to do is give back to the fans, comes on here regularly, does spaces to talk to fans, listened to what they've gone through with tickets and pricing etc. Fans asked for things and he's giving it, teolaegi restock, sock go, both things fans asked for

I'm so happy to have been part of this moment, the teolaegi started with a simple gift from Baekhyun to us during his enlistment and it has taken on this whole proportion! It's so rewarding to see another success from you my love! Thank you my genius idol 백현이 ❤️ pic.twitter.com/2QzwmzvRSf

But, some netizens were unhappy with the price of items at his Teolaegi store and saw the socks group order as a way to keep selling things to fans.
So Baekhyun turned to a messaging app to apologize to anyone upset at the prices, reassuring fans that his goal isn’t to make money from them but that he just wants these meaningful moments with them.

I’m not trying to use Eris to make money… When selling the Americanos, I told them to please make them reasonable prices, not like the unreasonable prices of my previous merch. The socks, too… It came up out of nowhere. I thought, ‘Oh, I hope my Eris can buy my favorite socks at a cheap price too!’ Honestly, I was prepared for negative reactions. But it didn’t matter; if you can buy them cheaply because of me, that’s all that matters!
He also apologized if “it seemed like [he] was trying to make money like a seller” but explained that he thought a pop-up store and a socks group order would be a nice way to create memories for fans. Baekhyun even mentioned how he tried to reduce the price to make it more convenient for fans.
And I asked the sock company to lower the price as much as possible because I don’t need to receive any money… I just enjoy spending time with my Eris. That’s the happiest moment for me, and I hope nobody covers it up with a different story… I’m sorry if it seemed like I was trying to make money like a seller, but since I can’t perform or meet you offline, I wanted to repay you in some other way. I don’t want you to feel empty. I know waiting is tough.
Fans immediately rushed to Baekhyun’s defense, reassuring the idol that they were grateful for all he does for them.
we appreciate and happy with everything Baekhyun did. teolaegi, zipduri event, also looking forward to GO socks too! we love playing and seeing you active on twitter, bubble, and ig. don't worry about anything, we will always support Baekhyun. #큥이버블 #백현버블 @B_hundred_Hyun

baekhyun’s love is so genuine that he’s willing to do anything possible to communicate and get closer to us. he takes our opinion seriously. no other idol spends his time doing spaces, bubble, and replying to hundreds of tweets at the same time. no other idol but baekhyun.

those who want the Teolaegi to be resold are FANS! those who want socks are also FANS! Then why is Baekhyun the one being scolded? why do so many people don't know themselves and realize that he is poor then blame baekhyun for trying to grant FANS requests?

Pointing out that Baekhyun isn’t the one in control of the pricing.
ugh i'm so mad that baekhyun felt the need to say this. obviously he does not personally decide the pricing and packaging of everything sm produces https://t.co/IK4VPIqRPm

He literally hold a space to make sure that fans didn’t have to purchase anything at high price, all that he did until now was for eris not for his personal gains or interests.
Baekhyun deserves all the love and needs to be treasured for all the things he does for his fans.

They are reassuring him that they will always support him, especially since he’s always shown so much consideration for them.

He goes on twitter and bubble to talk to fans, even doing spaces which he doesn't have to cos he wants to repay the love he gets. I hate that he had to apologise for this, always expecting the negative outcome with everything 😞
