Thursday, July 05, 2012Nicholas

The highly anticipated SNSD postage stamps are being met with criticism. 
Following news that the SNSD members would be featured in an upcoming special edition set of postage stamps, some have begun to complain about the stamp set′s price.

On July 3, the Korean Post had first announced the special SNSD postage stamps and had revealed it had specially cast the group for the upcoming stamps.
The set will include 14 stamps in total with nine individual member stamps and five stamps featuring SNSD’s albums, and will cost 20,000 Korean won (approximately 17.64 USD) but the public immediately began voicing their displeasure online complaining the price was high.

A normal stamp costs 270 Korean won (.23 USD), making the SNSD stamps almost 15 dollars more expensive.
Disgruntled netizens commented saying, “The SNSD stamps are expensive”, “I was really surprised at the price!” and “If it wasn’t priced so high I would buy one since they’re so pretty.”
