There will be a Soompi booth at KCON, and we want to see as many of you there as possible! We will have several giveaways throughout the day, free Soompi swag, a TV playing your favorite K-Pop and Soompi Exclusive content, and more.
Your very own Soomp (Founder Susan Kang) will be moderating a panel on the Rise of Foreign Influence in K-Pop, featuring Simon and Martina from Eat Your Kimchi, and Chad Future, the first American K-Pop artist, among others.
We will be giving away many signed and unsigned albums by popular K-Pop artists including 4minute, Exo-K, Brown Eyed Girls, Super Junior, SHINee, TaeTiSeo, SISTAR, Wonder Girls, and 2pm. Make sure you come say hi!
