One of the best things about KCON are the Friday #KCONLiveChat sessions on Youtube. We’ve always really enjoyed the engagement of the KCON team. It’s something we feel really passionate about when it comes to being active on social media and it’s made KCON one of our favorite events.
Here is May 16th chat! Happening now!
Here’s are 5 things that have transpired over season 2 so far! Check out the latest news on our KCON GENERAL INFO PAGE.
1. In the first chat, KCON’s lovely host Hoon came back and intro’d us to new staff member, Vanessa (43 minute mark)! She runs a lot of the online marketing fans will be seeing.
2. The next chat showed Hoon’s growing beard and announced fan club applications for KCON (15 minute mark). They are actively encouraging fan clubs of all types to apply – music, dramas, variety shows, food… you name it!
3. Tanya from HallyuKnow was a guest (34 minute mark) to talk about kdramas, but they also announced co-host applications for their I Heart Korean Movies & Dramas meet up groups (15 minute mark). Check out the Los Angeles and New York city chapters. Future cities will be determined later.
4. Ever wanted to know about cosplay (“costume play”)? KCON brought some amazing cosplayers out previously and this chat they talked to Candiie Wish all about it (24 minute mark).
5. Jeff Benjamin is the guest for the chat (24 minute mark). We really enjoyed him on a panel back at the first KCON in 2012. This time we learn about how he got started covering KPOP and some funny stories about his experiences so far.
The KCONLiveChat on May 9th featured a discussion on EXO’s “Overdose” with some popular reaction video stars: Freshly Flipped, Mister Popo, and JREKML! They talked about a bunch of things as well. Check it out!
