Heads up for all of you in the LA area (or who are willing to travel to the LA area in the name of K-pop, which we fully endorse as a worthy endeavor): Dramabeans will be speaking at a panel about dramas at KCON 2013!
KCON, in a nutshell, is a large-scale convention and concert dedicated to “all things Hallyu,” now in its second year (apparently 10,000 fans showed up last year). It will be held this year on August 24-25 (Saturday & Sunday) and features panels and workshops planned over both days, capped off with a concert Sunday night. The lineup as it currently stands is: G-Dragon, 2AM, EXO, f(x), Teen Top, and DJ Koo.
The drama panel girlfriday and I will be at will be held on Saturday morning (11:30 AM) and is hosted by your friendly neighborhood drama-crack-provider Viki. (Thanks, Viki!) And wouldn’t ya know, Viki is currently hosting a ticket giveaway, so enter over there to win free admission.
Or, buy your own tickets at Ticketmaster. Note that you buy one ticket that’s listed for the Sunday concert, but it’ll get you in to both convention and concert, Saturday and Sunday.
So, details in handy list form:
- Who: Us! That’s javabeans and girlfriday on the drama panel, with gummimochi and HeadsNo2 also in attendance (though we can’t vouch for their whereabouts as they may or may not be busy stalking G-Dragon, ahem).
