10 Reasons You Should Go To KCON 2013

10 Reasons You Should Go To KCON 2013

KCON, Mnet, bekah, After School, f(x), EXO, TEEN TOP, 2AM

I'm a Millenial, so I like making lists and checking it twice. I'm a K-pop fan, so yes, I know the bargaining fans make with themselves (and maybe their alter-egos) as they decide to drop their hard-earned (or long-saved) dollars to a worthy K-pop event.For this post, allow me to give you (unsolicited) advice or a POV on the reasons why KCON is worthy.

10. Its bigger and better this year.

With KCON being spread across two days, it is guaranteed to be jam-packed with lots of awesome! Mark the date on your calendarAugust 23 and 24 at the LA Sports Stadium. Thats right, were gonna be at the stadium this year.

9. It is your chance to see your cyberdols (a.k.a your idols who are not actually artists but source of everything K-pop or K-drama goodness!)

There is a reason I can keep up with K-drama, and thats because of Dramabeans recaps (and of course Kdramastars). And earlier this week, their Twitter post confirmed that javabeans and girlfriday will sit in one of the awesome panels at KCON this year. And you guys all know how elusive those two had been, right? We only know them through their aliases, so this is one chance to finally put a face to those names. So, if you find their recaps missing during two days in August, you'll know where to find them.

Do you dig that choreo from your top K-pop group? Well, the choreographer panel is back this year! Last year, the choreographer panel featured Aimee Lee Lucas, Kyle Hanagami, Ellen Kim and Rino Nakasoneall choreographers behind K-pops greatest hits. And who knows maybe one of them will do another dance session teaching you the latest moves. (EXO Wolf juseyoooonggg!!) K-pop MVP (headed by Aimee Lee Lucas) will be participating again this year for the Side Stage.

10 Reasons You Should Go To KCON 2013

The song composer/producer panel is also back this year. Last year, Drew Ryan Scott, JD Relic, and Sean Alexander graced the panel shedding insights behind K-pops biggest hits. That panel is back, and you might get to meet other awesome composers as well! Moderator Shin B. from last years panel is going to be performing with JD Relic and also Drew Ryan Scott, at Reason #6 (check it out below).

Theres going to be a bunch of other interesting panels. From a previous KCON attendee perspective, the panels were the highlight for me last year as I learned a lot. What did I learn? A lot. It wont fit in one post, but to sum it in one sentenceI learned that I chose the right genre to be a fan of. K-pop rules!!!

8. There will be contests that you can join (and win!) And Workshops. And Movies.. And. the list goes on.

Want to cosplay? Want to do a cover dance? Want to design a shirt? Come to KCON and you can do all that!

I actually like to think of it as warm-ups and activities to stave off the boredom, instead of just queuing in line aimlessly for a concert. MNET thought of you and wanted you to enjoy that time, so are offering you all these other activities. I find that rather thoughtful and ingenious. I have a feeling MNET America really has the fan in mind planning for this thing. And having been part of convention/conference committees before, I know how much work is put in it. Show them some love for all that thoughtfulness and hard work, will you?

7. #MyKpop

The story of your life comes to life, as fans who became finalists for Hashtag MyKpop (#myKpop) participate in a new reality series commencing at KCON. Sometimes you would think that you actually belong to a community of like-minded and like-hearted Kpop fans, and #myKpop will be the way to prove that.

MNET just announced their first two casts. You will get to meet all six of the fan-casts at KCON.

6. Side Stage and Artist Panel

When local K-pop artists band together to provide entertainment for a Side Stage, you would feel like you already got your moneys worth even before the actual, main, concert begins. And for the B-side-track-lover in me, Im sure I will love this Side Stage. The line-up has been revealed: Shin B, K-pop MVP, Jeff Bernat, Jun Sung Ahn, Jeremy Thurber, Drew Ryan Scott, Nylon Pink, Greg Hignight and DJ Koo. If you dont know some of them or if you know them like they are your best friends, come to KCON and guaranteed you will have a good time.

Before I forget, did I already tell you that Bekah, graduate of After School, will doing the artist session? Yes, youre welcome. Bekah will be talking about the life of an idolnice to get that perspective. Her session will be open to all tiers of tickets. I know. Im stoked!

5. f(x)

Rum pum pum pum Yay!!! You will get to witness the K-pop girl group du jour! Right now, theyre the only female group in the line-up. Fine group of ladies, Im telling you. Make sure you wont regret this like the pain of your first wisdom tooth.

f(x) has proven way too many times this year that they are the next act racing to the top. Having performed at prestigious SXSW, hobnobbing with Hollywood celebs, they are the next big thing. Yet, they are not quite there yet as we all know. And its not too long ago when they have had to face struggles of being a rookie and of being trainees. Dont believe me? Check out MNETs newest hour-long documentary about them, Go! f(x)!, and see for yourself.

4. Teen Top

They had been blitzing the globe recently, but hadnt yet set foot on America. KCON will be their first time to perform in the USA. And based on the rave reviews from their European tour earlier this year, they are a group to want to check out. I have a feeling that I will turn into a fan once I see them in the flesh.In last year's KCON, I didn't know what B.A.P or Nu'Est or VIXX were all about, and now I consider myself their fan. I think this year, Teen Top will be the dark horse for me, and I will turn into a fan after KCON.

3. 2AM

Okay, now, dont get me started. Ive been longing for this day to come. Ive been to a lot of K-pop multi-artist concerts in the USA, and I always dreamed that 2AM will someday be part of a lineup. Being a ballad-lover, and technically a 2AM fan, I am excited to know that 2AM will balance the energy at KCON with their heartfelt crooning. Even for just a few songs, I consider it already a million shades of awesome that this quartet is finally on a stage, here, where I can see them from less than a mile. I wonder if they hurt like me, them who wouldnt answer my calls, them who I wont let go even if I die. Yep, in the heat of summer, KCON will be one fine spring day for me! Cheesy? Corny? I dont care. But, maybe for some of you, like for me, 2AM can be enough reason to go.

2. EXO

Grrrr. Grrrrr Ahwoooooo! Last years EXO-M fan sign at KCON was probably one of the most memorable experiences of my life, even if I didnt get an autograph. I finally got to realize how much these guys are really loved. As the fans lined up, literally, in droves, I felt like I was in a scene of the Hunger Games. And that was just EXO-M (which was already more than enough, mind you). This year the full band is going to be here, so the droves will be doubled. And the stakes higher, but hey, I will still probably volunteer myself as tribute.

How does it feel when you're meters away from EXO? Imagine this scene in this proof shot. Or stop imagining and see them in person at KCON 2013.

10 Reasons You Should Go To KCON 2013

1. Mystery EPIC artist still to be revealed, Monday 7/29, at 4PM right on this page.

No, its not Epik High, although I wish they were indeed part of the line-up. (Powers-that-be, is that considered a clue?) We wont be dropping hints beyond that one. But just watch this page for who it will be by Monday. MNET says that once this artist is revealed the tickets are going to go fast. So, I thought I will be nice to really convince you to get tickets now before they all start costing an arm and a leg or before they will be considered endangered species. Which is why I made this list for you, in case you need some pushing, as you go about up and down your list of pros and cons of why you should invest in a ticket. Yes, it is an investment, and a worthy one at that. If KCON ends up disappointing, I encourage yall to find me on the grounds and give me an earful (I cant promise you that I wont be wearing ear plugs though, and I reserve the right to point you to the appropriate people).

Being in media, I know that I should be transparent about my motivations. While yes, KpopStarz is a media partner for KCON (we get press releases), this article is honest. My experience last year at KCON was a great one, although last years event only being the first KCON, I wished that it was done better (Read my recap then). With all the communication and the preparation going on for this year, I can see how MNET America is really aiming for the second time around to be better. And because of that, I want to be there again this year. And although I could have a thousand different reasons to share, 10 is enough, for now.

Hope to see you!

KCON(Photo : hancinema) At KCON Manhattan 2016 presented by capability of Toyota HanCinema had the privilege and the excitement of being on two panels with some amazing colleagues: "The Go back of the call of the gameLifestyles of K-pop Lovers Over 30" and "From K-pop Fan to K-pop Professional".

I, Lisa Espinosa AKA Raine, mentioned my go back and forth to Korea with the Korea Joa program, and felt privileged to have the opposite over-30 girlssettle for me into their fold. Leah Westbrook AKA Zombie Mama, writer, photographer, mom of 4 and lover of all things Korean, has gotten to do a little amazing interviews while also being an concerned mother and wife. Stephanie Kurtz from Kchat Jjigae, a creator and podcaster, in spite of being asked at a concert if she was a chaperone, continues to constitute older K-pop lovers with gusto and verve!

As older fans of the Hallyu wave, we every now and thenobtainperplexed and ageist comments from an audience most commonlyproduced fromteenagers and young twenty-somethings. Have any of you older HanCinema readers experienced this? So long aswe like K-pop, Korean Drama, Korean Film, and Korean culture, there is not anythingto prevent United States of America from loving and taking phase inup toany person else.

And in relation to the panelists, we also make careers out of loving, knowing, and writing/photographing/Youtubeing/podcasting about Hallyu. This was discussed during HanCinema's 2nd panel "From K-pop Fan to K-pop Professional" moderated by documentary maker and writer, Adrienne Stanley.Jeff Benjamin of Fuse, the guy who paved the wave for K-pop journalism in the United States, was the lone guyat the panel, yet very much enjoyed and well-received. Tamar Herman of Billboard and KultScene has made a profession for herself writing, currently interviewing K-pop powerhouses like Tiffany and Jessica of Girl's Generation. Angie Mills, photographer for Kpopstarz captures amazing moments in Hallyu to percentage with the realm and has photographed award ceremonies, K-pop concerts, conventions, and more. Multifacetedacg and I rounded out the panel. This panel traversed a good deal ofsubjectsstarting frommild to more serious. On the happier facet of things, Tamar was recently followed by Tiffany on social media, while Adrienne attended remaining year's MAMA awards in China. We also spoke about how we were given started: Multifacetedacg began on her camera telephone and I used to be contacted by the use of Twitter.

Kcon New York 2016 At The Prudential Center - June 24th-25th, 2016 PHOTOS (Photo : Angie Turbines for KpopStarz ) Entering the 2d one day of KCON The large apple made me excited than I used to be the day before. Perhaps because I best had one panel to wait and had more time to explore at the convention. And also maybe since the hype for the key headliner, BTS, used to be intense.

AdvertisementChecked-in and browsed, loads of lovers wore black and white with the letters "BTS" or a member's call on them.

After my remaining panel with NuttyNomads, East Coast K-Spots, there has beenan infinitequantity of time for me to try the Korean food street. From the Nongshim Shin Ramyun stand for the ones thatwish to existrelatively sadistic and treat themselves to a hot taster of ramyun in the sweltering warmth to the Melona booth wearing3other flavors in their signature ice pops to cool things down.

A few meters away, lines of local food trucks got herevia to give a dose of Asian cuisine. From the potato spiral, Korean tacos, to kimbap and other Korean boulevard foods, there were also burgers and fries to be hador even an ice cream truck serving them in scoops in a hot glazed doughnut called creamybuns.

The four-member ladycrew brought the crowd to cheers proving that their reputationis solely every bitwonderful the male teams on the KCON line-up. While they sang "You're The Best" in their setlist it was when they sang "Taller Than You (1cm)" when I were given hyped. Now not because that was the sole song I knew, yet the beat sounded like a badass feminineedition of Eminem's "The GenuineSlender Shady."

After MAMAMOO's set, JYP's choice pop/rock back Day6 came out in complete ensemble appearing "Letting Go," "Congratulations," and "Freely." As many idea their set might've been a brief one, the crowd created a special stage and collaborated with MAMAMOO.

BTS comes up from the stage in flaming charismatic poses as they and the crowd started to sing "FIRE."

I, myself, could nothang back the dancing as well. I would most likely not know the choreography but there was some intense headbanging, head bopping and dabbing on my end.

Soon following up with "Save Me," BTS continues to leave a deep affect within everybody with their synchronized choreography to the tropical house-like track.

When it came to particular person introductions, the screams just grew louder and louder. The neighborhood then broke it down with performing a complete freestyle/rap ensemble and closed out the night with their viral hit "DOPE."

The night was not anything simply lit.

As all the KCON Day 2 performers came out for the closing stage, artists gave their proportion of fan provider by sending out flying kisses, mini-hearts and waves. Some artists like Ailee and MAMAMOO busted out in moves while BTS's Junggook proved himself to be the king of Dabs as he dabbed across one finish of the stage to another.

The amusing was at its top but it was unluckyto gain that KCON 2016 has come to an end.

They say time flies by when you may have got fun. And as for anyone who experienced KCON for the 1st time, it was an revel in that was way too fun and too fast. Till next year!

KCON L. a.is simply around the corner so stay an eye out for KpopStarz's coverage!
