Duckoo's Diary, Unboxing WayV 'Kick Back'

This is a translation of the original Korean post by 핵덕후 (TN: nuclear fangirl).

The boys have come back! Though I got on the Ktown GO,

albums are best served when unboxed offline on the day of release.

Hard to get off the hook once addicted (?)

So today I went to Hot Tracks (TN: a music store in Korea) with a friend to just casually

get one of each version and rip them offline.

Originally we were going to the Gangnam branch, but after intermittently

checking the inventory count at each location...

띠용... Uh oh, what is up with the Gangnam branch?

After losing all their stock yesterday, it has not yet been restocked.

C'mon producers, you need to get the quantity right (beating them up today as usual;)

**(simple tip) How to check inventory at Hot Tracks!

Go to their mobile site - then click on the record you want to purchase, and click on the store's inventory to check!

You can either do this, or if you call the store directly

that is the fastest and most accurate method. Take note!

So instead of Gangnam, we headed to the Gwanghwamoon store!

As they come near, I felt myself shaking with the heart coming out of my mouth...

Been a duckoo (fangirl) for the n-th year.. having unboxed offline countless albums..

been there done that. I brushed it off, saying "all is well,"

but after initiating my fanaticism with WayV, it's my first offline unboxing.

I felt very tense with the butterfly in the stomach, I've gone crazy.

ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ (TN: hahaha)

Here's a lucky charm my friend gave me!

for selecting the photocard of your bias.


My cute friend...

The exhibits of the Zzang-iShenV💗 (TN: zzang meaning 'awesome' plus WeiShenV)

in Gwanghwamoon Hot Tracks.

Though I always choke up because of their clothes,

They are so handsome... I soaked in misery at work (like pickled radish)

But this definitely made my day today.

I was tempted to buy this zzang SuperM album as well.

I resisted myselfㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

It was nearly the first time I've seen it offline.

Hold a sec, I'm coming back to get you, Ten and Wookhee

(look at that hand reaching towards Ten ㅋㅋ)


WeiShen V Kickback albums in my arms finally,

As always, I have many complaints against the company (ㅗ)

But the one thing I'm never skeptical of is the songs' presentation and quality.

I have a feeling the producer-nim's sincerity towards music is real -

(having said that, stop tax evasion and focus on your work, sunsaeng-nim,,,)

Many criticize how the music is not for the mass

but I think good music doesn't have to be for the mass🤔

My ears responded immediately to this title (?).

However a bit difficult, thought it must have been difficult ㅋㅋ

On the first run, it reminded me a bit of 'I Got a Boy' by Girls' Generation!

This album too has good content, with a thick cover and quality papers.

No weird cropshots (?) or margin shots, good.

My friend shot this, an anxious me waiting for the albums



My rearview looks so otakuㅠ

I wore the backpack to carry the albums.

My heart is exploding jinjja (TN: really)..... htbt...

By the national constitution, unboxing should be done at the store.

However, past the release date, there were only few people.

So we moved to a rather quiet place and unboxed there.

First smack down some coffee... but decaffeinated for the sake of my pounding heart;

With my friend, one of each version, so a total of four!

Whose photocards did we get? (🥁 drum rolls)

Got four Hendolls

Hendoll such a prince, moment so handsome;

So good looking, (tho at times) strange our Hendery💚

Ah, whenever I see those clothes jinjja🤦🏻‍♀️ look at those pants.

If I were Hen, I might have cried and screamed, our boys are so relenting...🥺

My friend got Hendery postcards as well

completing our Hendery set

After the album opening, our stomachs growled.

We had a bit late dinner, thought of a porridge but due to time got something else.

Apparently this is a famous restaurant, very good #광화문미진#미진

After dinner, we walked to the City Hall station and saw a Dunkin.

I said in passing I want one, and my friend bought me... #던킨#던킨도너츠

Pal... (Moved to tears)


Back at home, the albums I got through GO had arrived.

Unboxed them through Kakao Live with my friends!

Bam- got Ten and Winwin💚

Postcards were of Deokjun (Xiaojun pronounced in Korean) and the group in black and white!

I didn't realize there was a group photo


I kept mixing up Stranger / Hitchhiker postcards so...

picked it up form Twitterㅠㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

This is quite a cool feature!

Kakao Livetalk, is what it's called?

We gathered together like so and unboxed ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

You feel like an idol doing the V app,

speaking by yourself while others comment.

And that's end of this unboxing post!

This post is rather lousy, but idk I had fun!

WayV Mini 3rd Album Kick Back, let it be a huge hit💖

I leave the last gif with all my heart in it >.<~~~
