Today marks the official start of KCON 2017 NY and to celebrate, I’ve put together a playlist of some of my favorite songs from this year’s appearing artists. (Woohoo!)
For those of you attending this year’s New York convention, I’m sure you’re far too busy to give this playlist a listen today but maybe it will help ease some of the post-KCON depressions that’s sure to hit once the weekend’s high wears off. For those of you who aren’t able to join in this weekend’s festivities, give this playlist a listen and know that there’s a Zombie roaming around New York, wishing you were here to join in all the fun with her. (Not that that really helps at all… Sorry about that.)
For those of you who can’t make it to KCON this weekend, don’t worry. KCON.TV, the leading short form online video platform dedicated to the fans of K-pop and beyond, will livestream both the red carpet and star-studded concerts, as well as Amazon’s Mobile Masters Invitational, which is taking place at the event. This will be the first time the red carpet at KCON USA will be livestreamed and believe me when I tell you, this is something you’re not going to want to miss!
The KCON.TV livestream for the concert will begin at 7pm EDT on KCON.TV. The red carpet will air at 5:30pm EDT. Amazon Mobile Masters will be livestreamed from 10am to 7pm EDT both today and tomorrow so be sure to mark your calendars, set your reminders and start your countdowns because KCON 2017 NY goes live today! Woohoo!
If you are going to be in New York this weekend, and you happen to see an overly excited, dark-haired zombie shambling around, please feel free to stop and say hi. I’ll most likely be sitting in on friends’ panels and wandering around taking pictures. On Saturday (from 3:30 – 4:30) I’ll be taking part in The Next K-Drama Star panel and I’d love, love, love it if you’d stop by, join in our discussion, and stick around to chat afterwards. By now you should all know how much I love squealing over biases in person so be sure to catch me and at least say hi before you get swept away in all the other KCON fun. Hope to see you there!
