Another reason why I love Snapchat. It’s how I discovered KCON LA – the world’s largest Korean culture convention dedicated to pop music, beauty products, fashion, Korean food, and the world of e-sports, which South Korea dominates with top competitors. Held at the LA Convention Center and Staples, Toyota was a major sponsor of this 4 day event. They also hold a similar event in NJ at Prudential Center in June (only 2 days so East Coast not getting the love LA gets!). But I am putting it on my schedule for next year!!
In 2015, over 75,000 fans attended KCON USA for concerts, celebrity meet and greets, workshops, panels, food, and fashion. Fans can also attend K-beauty makeup tutorials, Korean cooking classes, K-pop dance lessons, and K-drama screenings – and over 150 companies run booths on the convention floor.
I’m now following them @KCONUSA on Twitter, so will not miss this next year.
