(*CC for CN) 2016 was the first year that KCON came to Paris, coinciding with the 130 Year anniversary of Korea-France Diplomatic ties. The KCON Convention in Paris took place at Le Studio, at AccorHotels Arena.
There were many vendors and interactive booths that offered fans a unique experience. Among them included beauty workshops, traditional Korean fashion, artist engagements sessions (like this one here with BTS) and of course… tasting delicious Korean food and snacks! One of the highlights was a virtual reality experience event, where participants could try virtually traveling to South Korea!
At 6pm, the doors opened to the concert, which included an impressive lineup of 6 artist groups – SHINee, f(x), F.T Island, Block B, BTS and IOI. The MC of the night was none other than Super Junior’s very own Leeteuk! Special guests included actor Jin Goo and actress Han Ji Min. Overall, the one day event attracted more than 13,500 fans of Korean culture and K-pop. Keep an eye out for
