I promised I’d share more of my adventures while at KCON and so I shall. One of the best parts of going to a convention like KCON is getting the chance to see your favorite actors and/or idols in person and one of the best places to do that is at one (or both) of the Red Carpet events.
In the past KCON’s Red Carpet affairs have been a chance for fans to interact with their favorite celebrities on a more personal level, saying a quick “hi,” wave, smile or even (occasionally) giving a quick high-five to those to pass by. However, this year things were set up differently and fans (and even press) were separated from the red carpet and stage by miles and miles of empty space. (Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration but still, there was a shocking amount of unused space near the stage that should have been filled with fans.) Needless to say, many dreams of interacting with this year’s celebrity guests on a personal level were dashed to pieces that day but that didn’t stop fans from waving to and cheering for all their favorites.
For those who were forced to catch a glimpse of their biases from the very back of the room and for those of you who weren’t able to attend KCON at all, I’ve gathered a handful of pictures from Saturday night’s Red Carpet. With a lineup that includes: Son Ho Jun, SISTAR, Roy Kim, GOT7, Monsta X, Super Junior and a surprise visit by Daniel Henney, there should be something for everyone. I hope you enjoy!
Editor’s note: were you at KCON in L.A. this year? Who would you have liked to see on the red carpet?
