The ultra K-pop extravaganza that is KCON has become a staple of American K-fanhood in recent years, so of course the Seoulbeats staff hounded the three day event this year in Los Angeles, California.
Leslie, John, Lindsay, Willis, Miyoko and I all set out to wrangle the KCON beast as well as all of our fangirl and fanboy feels, and encountered maybe more than what we bargained for. From frozen bananas, to JUN.K pins, red carpet hysteria, and KBBQ amidst serious fanfare, cross cultural discussion, and interviews with K-pop fans, KCON was a whirlwind of a weekend we are never going to forget.
On this episode of BuzzBeats, we start our KCON debrief with John and Leslie, and give you a day by day breakdown of our chaotic weekend as fans coming into our own. Tune in to hear our stories about red carpet drama, a love affair with Kyuhyun, and our run in with Buzzfeed this year at KCON 2015![soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/220305934″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /]
