Would like tofind out how to cook? You can. To talk Korean? You'll start. To dance along sidethe newest and biggest hits? Of course.
In fact, there is such a lot to do right through KCON weekend that every now and then it may also be overwhelming, exhausting, or even downright intimidating. But, never fear! As fourth year attendees, Team Soompi is crammed with KCON professionals and we’re pooling our wisdom to permit you to make the maximumfrom your KCON weekend.
Without extra ado the definitive e book to surviving KCON:
Listen, I know you need to haveto seemlovable because all of the stars at the developmentcan be literally the cutest, ever, but you also wish to exist alive to look them. Existence hack: bring cute shoes BUT ALSO wear comfy shoes. The sole fourth dimension you’ll in realitywish toglance cute (or, must 1 rephrase: the single times you’ll be seeing your faves) will be at some point oftarget audience engagements and the concerts. This lets youget dressed freely for the hours (and hours) you may spend waiting in lines or wandering around the largeconferencecorridor amongst your friends. There is rather a lot to see and do, don’t get stuck sitting outdoorseeking torelaxation your tired feet all of the time.
2. Excessive Attentiveness
I know that I just acknowledged that you’ll most effective run into your faves two times a day, but I really lied. While you arefor your A-game, you can for sure visit your faves way more often. Annuallyother artists are ushered into sponsor booths, the major stage, or other occasionsgoing down in the real convention center. These sorts of are announced, some are a surprise. What does that mean for you? Remain in the convention room and stay your eyes and ears open at all time. We’ve had SISTAR walk correctbeyond us and (after recuperating from a mini middle attack) we only spotted because we were paying attention.
3. Becoming a Morning Person
If your tickets come with artist engagements, you're going toneed to arrive as early as imaginableat the first day. First, artist engagements mightstartin a while after doors open on Friday. Second, you don’t wish to fail to notice the mass trading that occurs Friday morning. Didn’t get that ASTRO high-touch pass you wanted? Chances are top that you’ll be ready to industry for it. Get there early and don’t be shy! I’ve at all timescontrolled to get the artists I would likesimply by trading the primary day.
If you've that one friend who is fantastic at planning, you wish tomost certainly invite them to KCON just to be sure your agenda is flawless. But, if you're that friend, don’t worry! KCON definitely makes making plans every bitsimple as doubtlessvia giving you heaps of opportunities to devise the day. Step 1: Download the KCON App. Make your schedule there so you have complete days planned and it’s all on your phone. Step 2: Get a KCON program book. I’m a little outdated henceI likehaving the ability to turnthroughout the book in case I have down time to see what I may neatly belacking out on. Step 3: Turn intoconversant in the layout of the convention middle on day one so you never waste time getting lost.
I feel like this need to be self-explanatory but, even though the tournament is inside, it’s still hot. It still comes toa massive number of standing. Don’t disregard to drink water (bring an empty water bottle to refill all day for free) and consumeright kind meals. Nobodyneeds to fall unwellahead of the concert! Remember, KCON partnered with KTown EveningMarketplace to have a ton of amazing food trucks right next to the Staples Center. Take a boxshuttle before the concert and fill up on scrumptious K-town treats. You’re going to burn it all off jumping during the display anyway, so move wild!
So one ultimate check, are you reallyprepared for KCON? Concert tickets? Check. Convention tickets? Check (make certain youssign up forthwith to steer transparent of long lines on Friday!). KLUB KCON tickets? Check (can’t pass over on Amber and DEAN).
And, of course, forestall by the Soompi booth to win prizes and say hi to our KCON veterans!
