Due in part to the persistence of unitedkpop blog, not to long ago, HMV Oxford Circus, London began selling hard copies of k-pop CDs in their store. HMV is a British global entertainment retail chain and is the largest of its kind in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The HMV Oxford Circus store met with such success and has been working hard to keep up with demand as word gets out that the store is stocking kpop albums. As you can see below there is a nice-sized section of albums. For all you VIPs out there, word on the street is that they have ordered even more Big Bang cds, plus posters and t-shirts.

Oh and the reason why 2NE1’s 2nd mini album isn’t in any of the photos — it is constantly sold out!!!!!
BIGBANG has now been ordered in and will be stocked in approximately 3 weeks, and to celebrate the success of the United Cube concert, a free United Cube album will be given away with every Kpop purchase – whilst stocks last. Also, we’ll soon be collaborating with HMV to deliver a weekly top 10 chart of who’s CD has been bought the most that week, please anticipate and stay tuned!
Thanks to ukygqueens for the tip.
