The "store" will run for one week from 26 July (12PM KST) to 1 August (12AM KST).
At the same time, the 'Bad Boy' act have also released the first video in the Queens Archive series featuring 'Somethin Kinda Crazy', a B-side from their debut mini-album Ice Cream Cake. The Queens Archive will feature brand-new clips soundtracked by the group's older songs as an ode to their past.
The second video stars Wendy in an edgy yet whimsical video set against 'I Just', a cut from their sophomore LP, Perfect Velvet.
The third visual in the series features 'Talk To Me' from 2017's Rookie, and sees Yeri attempting to bake a cake.
On 29 July, the fourth Queens Archive video arrived, featuring Irene and Perfect Velvet B-side 'Perfect 10'.
The fifth Queens Archive teaser features Joy in a quirky video set against 'Bad Dracula' from Red Velvet's third mini-album, Russian Roulette.
Seulgi wrapped up the solo series with 'So Good,' an R&B track from their 2018 EP, RBB.
Red Velvet 'Closed' the archive week with a roundtable moment featuring all five members.
