Red Velvet fans, rejoice! An official lightstick may soon be on the way!
New K-Pop fans might not understand the buzz surrounding these fancy flashlights, or know why they have become one of the most popular fan accessories.
Lightsticks are a key part of the K-Pop concert experience. They allow fans to participate in the show by creating dazzling “oceans” of light for their idols.
Lightsticks are also symbols. Each one is as unique as the K-Pop act it represents. It is, essentially, an extension of each group’s personality.
Red Velvet have been active since 2014, but they still do not have an official lightstick to call their own. For Red Velvet’s first headline concert series, Red Room, Red Velvet fans were only able to purchase an official penlight. This pen light was produced specifically for Red Room, not for Red Velvet themselves.
Fans have been wishing to have lightsticks for Red Velvet’s REDMARE concert series…and it looks like that wish may soon be granted!
On July 4, SM Entertainment applied to trademark this official Red Velvet logo.
The company also applied to trademark various items that will feature this new logo…
If this isn’t enough to make ReVeluv hearts skip a beat, SM Entertainment’s history might be! In April 2016, the company filed a similar trademark for EXO.
They revealed their new lightstick in July of the same year, to kick off EXO’s The EXO’rdium concert tour.
When SM Entertainment filed a Super Junior trademark in November 2017, the group’s lightstick was unveiled a month later, for Super Show 7.
Seulgi revealed that Red Velvet may be coming back in August with a new song. Between this new song and REDMARE, August would be the perfect time for SM Entertainment to reveal the official lightstick.
Excited ReVeLuvs are now brainstorming ideas for what this official lightstick might look like.
i don’t want to give false hope but i think red velvet has been using the money gun too much lately. perhaps they’re hinting us that the official lightstick would look like a gun??? pic.twitter.com/HTHKK9ItIp

I'm fine with the feather duster, but it's great that we're having a murder knife with LED light to support the girls 🙂

They have even created their own designs, some of which are sillier than others!

Perhaps the official lightstick will be red, white, and pink, like this melting heart…
The result of boredom lmao. Made my own Red Velvet official lightstick concept idea. Inspired by Bad Boy and Red Room Japan Hall tour IC card 😆It was supposed to be crystal-like (Shinee's), but I don't know how to do it asdasdjahs. I'm praying that the long wait is worth it ❤️ pic.twitter.com/5c0aYshy0R

This colourful, carnival design would certainly be memorable!
At this point, most ReVeluvs just want a lightstick. Any lightstick!
