KPOPCON 2013

Dear followers,

It’s been a long time since we last updated and so many things have happened this year in kpop that it’s difficult to know where to begin. So let’s start with the basics: We’ve begun planning for KPOPCON 2013! Our website is currently down and has a temporary logo but rest assured that soon it will be back with a new design that looks hella fly. We’re still looking for members if anyone is interested in participating, feel free to send us an email. You don’t need to go to UC Berkeley but you do need to be able to meet with your committee heads and members that predominantly reside in Berkeley.

Right now most of our social media outlets look outdated and boring but publicity is working on logos so not to worry, soon we will look shiny and new. We know there’s many kpop concerts and conventions happening across the US now and many clubs popping up left and right at schools so if you’re sticking with us, thank you!

This convention is being put on by fans for fans! We don’t have the resources to bring you big artists like Bigbang or SNSD but we try to make up for that by bringing lots of fans together to make long lasting friendships! Last year many of us made good friends with convention attendees and we would love to continue spreading those KPOP loving friendships all across the bay and beyond.

Let’s hope we can make next year a sucess. Tell all your friends.

KPOPCON'12 :) CASSIOPEIA representing!

The host asked us what music video they showed play next before they start introducing the guests and officially start the program. Guess what happened? Well, let’s say Cassiopeia made it happen, followed by the most amazing fan chants ever.

KPOPCON'13, get ready, CASSIOPEIA is COMING.

We will begin official planning on Thursday!

Today we held out elections and though it was tough, the majority of the spots were filled with the exception of a few. I’m happy to say I am now returning as your loyal tumblr girl and will help lead what will be some intense social media campaigning this summer. So get ready for a lot more blogging and reblogging. We have big plans for KPOPCON 13 so please, as we are still fairly new, take care of us!

If you are interested in helping any committee (Housing and volunteering, meet up, workshops, finance, publicity, outreach, social media, food, logistics, and entertainment) please come by and join our KPC family. Committee members are not required to be Berkeley students. The more you help the more you will be able to not only get inside knowledge but make great new friends. We need all the help we can get to make this coming convention successful. 

Thank you again. Planning again will be in Dwinelle at a time to be determined. We will update as soon as possible but please keep Thursday evening available!

If you’re really interested in helping a committee but cannot attend, please let us know so that we can try to connect you with the committee head(s) in charge and they can better tell you how to help them. ^___^

Still unsure what committee does what? Click here to get more info.

KPOPCON...

A convention where lines don’t mean waiting for hours just to meet an artist for a second and miss out on an interesting pannel in the mean time.

A convention where you might find yourself running up with a group of strangers to dance to the same song.

A convention where you can spaz about your favorite groups one minute and then have a heated debate about the music industry with actual professors and professionals the next.

A convention where dance workshops are run by KPOP fans that understand how much you love your groups.

A convention where you won’t be concerned with meeting idols or embarrassing yourself in front of them because you’ll be having too much fun talking to other fans.

A convention where the money isn’t used for profit but simply to make fans happy.

A convention run for fans by fans.

We may not have idols coming to attend our convention but we have the most important people in idols’ lives that are coming and that’s all of us fans. Without our support they wouldn’t be able to dish out all kinds of entertainment. So join us at our second annual convention this year to converse with loving fans and make wonderful new friends.

KPOPCON'13 VOLUME UP!

February 16th & 17th at UC Berkeley

HEY KPOPCON FANS!

How is the tumblr crowd doing? We hope everyone has been having a fabulous summer so far, and just wanted to check in and let you all know that KPOPCON will be returning in full force in the next months!

We’ll be coming to you with regular staff planning updates, special sneak peeks, a new website, the game plan for our 2014 convention and much more. Thank you for your continued support, we wouldn’t be here without you guys. KPOPCON staff has missed you all and we hope that you’re ready for another great convention in 2014! Stay tuned and let your friends/followers know about us :)
 
Happy 100th Day!

It’s officially been 100 days since the first ever KPOP Convention took place in the United States. While we here at Cal kick off our finals week, we are also diligently planning next year’s convention. Did you make history with us? Over 300 fans made our first convention beyond successful by exceeding our attendee goal by double. So what do we have in store for 2013? You’ll just have to wait and see! With so many concerts, debuts, and come backs this year seems to have KPOP skyrocketing across the world as one huge global force. Be on the look out for KPC members attending SM Town, Jay Park’s concert and more as the year progresses. We want you to come to next year’s convention more pumped up than ever before.

Oh, and one last thing. There will be a new committee member debut here. That’s right, I will no longer be running this thing alone! Once finals come to an end the series of never ending tumblr spam will flood your dashboards by not just one but two admins. ^__^

See you all again soon!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Here at KPC, we know all of us would like nothing more than to receive an idol as a gift but because we also know that’s impossible we can only hope for the next best thing, KPOP swag! And even then, we know the merch is hard to come by and sometimes too much money for our wallets. So come to KPOPCON'13, where we will have our annual merchandise selling/reselling plus giveaways. Why buy an autographed album when you can win one at KPOPCON'13? 

See you soon!

KPOPCON’13 VOLUME UP!

February 16th & 17th at UC Berkeley

SMTown + Korean Music Wave in Google concerts

What a crazy week for KPOP we’re having! Forget all the crazy debuts and comebacks, this weekend might be one of the most historic moments in KPOP history with it’s back to back concerts! Rest assured the KPC13 staff will be on the scene! Kicking it in Socal the day before SMTown? Plan to look for idols at Disneyland? Guess I’ll see you there. Attending the massive meet and greet and the convention center before SMTown on Sunday? Guess I’ll see you as well. Oh and Norcal how could we forget- attending the free Korean Music Wave in Google concert? I guess if you’ll be going to all three you are bound to see me! But not just me, most of our staff will be at one of the events or all three. We’re excited to meet with fans and past attendees so if you recognize us say hello or better yet wear your name tag! You’ll be meeting all kinds of new people so what better what to help introduce yourself? ^__^ We’re taking in all the details, all the fan accounts and reactions to help make KPOPCON13 one of the most anticipated events next year. See you all very soon!
