Leading K-pop boy band BigBang will be honored with postage stamps to mark the eighth anniversary of its debut, the state postal service and the group’s management agency said Wednesday.

Three different versions of postage stamps with images of the band members will be released simultaneously in South Korea, China and Japan on Oct. 31, the Korea Post and YG Entertainment said.

The three versions will all have different designs, with the South Korean version including one gold stamp and five postcards, according to the agency.

The Japanese version has postcards along with stamps for commemorating the group’s upcoming concert tour of five Japanese cities, while the Chinese one consists of stamps and commemorative coins.

“Those stamps were produced with new images of BigBang, which have not been unveiled so far,” a YG official said. “They will also be a good present for fans as they can see the group’s undisclosed images on the stamps.”

BigBang is scheduled to perform in Nagoya on Nov. 15-16, the first destination of its five-city concert tour in Japan. (Yonhap)
