Hi all and welcome back to the Seoulbeats Chat Box. You have a good eye if you noticed something different.

Normally, these are done by Gaya. This time around, I was able to host a chat box and converse with Lauren and Vya as the three of us attended KCON 2016 NY. Lauren and I covered day one and two separately, but the three of us came together to talk about our experience with KCON considering we had never had the chance to attend the convention for “All Things Hallyu” before.

With that being said, we had a lot to talk about. You can find a small synopsis below.

  • First impressions of the convention.
  • Day one thoughts and panels (Lauren and Madi)
    • The Return of the Secret Life of K-pop Fans over 30.
    • Take a K-drama Vacation!
    • Meet the Producers and Cast of Bad Rap.
  • Day two adventures and panels (Vya, Madi, Lauren)
    • Banishing Blackheads to K-drama Makeup Tips with Alicia Yoon of Peach and Lily.
    • East Coast K-Spots.
    • Lots of K-Beauty and K-drama talk with DramaFever and DramaBeans.
    • Behind the Scenes with the Producers of SM Entertainment.
    • Interview with Danny from 1TYM, also known as Danny from L.A.
  • Red Carpet experience (Madi and Lauren)
  • Mnet M! Countdown KCON Concert
    • Top five highlights from the concert
      • In the words of Vya, “Hot damn, Eric Nam.”
      • BTS taking over the Prudential Center.
      • Artist covers won us over thanks to Seventeen, Mamamoo, Eric Nam, Day6, and Ailee.
      • Day6 impressing us.
  • Wrapping it up with regrets, the desire to return to KCON, and who we would choose for our next line up.
  • Last words and shout outs!

We present to you some teaser photos from Red Carpet. The rest are located on Facebook, so be sure to give our page a like and comment, like, and share the photos.

Hopefully this will hype you up for KCON 2016 LA which is approaching quickly!
