SM Entertainment Global Shop thought of the perfect April Fools’ joke, but it might have been a little too perfect!
Many K-Pop idols, fansites, and even companies had fun pulling pranks on April 1 making fans all around the world have a good laugh. But among all those jokes, there was one that many fans were actually hoping wasn’t a joke.
Posting to both their Twitter and Instagram pages, SM Global Shop revealed a brand new lightstick to fans. The new lightstick was a combination of all the current SM Entertainment artist lightsticks.
Promoting the joke as a limited edition offer that would be available starting April 8, their wacky and wonderful lightstick mashup caught a lot of attention.
⭐️NEW PRODUCT ALERT⭐️
After many requests to combine all of our SM Entertainment fanlights together, we have decided to begin production for the SM LIGHTSTICK!
This limited edition lightstick will be available for purchase starting next week 4/8 exclusively at the SM Global Shop! pic.twitter.com/6jNybu0lSb

Although some fans were glad that the lightstick was simply an April Fools’ joke stating that they found the mashup ugly, many others sincerely liked it and thought it would be perfect for SMTown concerts.

While it still remains a simple April Fools’ joke, thanks to all the interest maybe someday SM Entertainment will create a lightstick for fans who love all the groups.
