If you attended KPOPCON’13, please check your emails and fill out convention survey. We want to hear what you thought about the convention- the good, the bad, and the ugly. ;) Thank you~
That’s all up to everyone who took pictures! Tag us in everything! We’re trying to compile all of the committee member’s pictures into an album but we would also like to see what the convention looked like from attendee’s eyes. :D
Weren’t SONE1 the coolest? Not only did they perform well but they came to the Fan Meet and danced some more. Their pictures from the scavenger hunt were hilarious too! AND Cass Song was a sweetheart. He was so patient during his workshop and so gracious even after the fire alarm fiasco. His fan service afterwards was also very professional.
Of course we will always ask past performers to come back if they can but you never know, KPC has opened a lot of windows for performers who have moved on to bigger and better things.
Thank you for coming out! It was a pleasure. :)
Thank you for your words. We know that having idols attend are what fans want the most but for a convention that’s as cheap as ours with very little funding and sponsorship, it’s nearly impossible.
Something that our committee loves the most though is the fact that all our performers and panelists are fans so it’s perfectly okay to fan girl/boy. It’s perfectly okay to be yourself without worrying about looking good for an idol. But even better, all of our performers and panelists were gracious enough to stick around and give fan service.
That’s something you could never guarantee at a concert. Everyone was patient and kind. Try saying that about other conventions that bring idols, try saying that about other conventions that are made by big companies and not by fans.
We designed this so that no one would feel out of place or left out. <3
Woo, I bet Flight B1A4 is really happy to have a new member! We’re happy you enjoyed the convention. It couldn’t happen without attendees! Thank you! <3
Thank you for enjoying it. We know we didn’t have much to offer and there was craziness everywhere but we really hope that it was to everyone’s liking. <3
From the bottom of all our hearts, we would like to thank every single person that attended this year’s KPOPCON, even if it was for one day, one hour, one minute or one second. We can’t thank our panelists enough, our keynote, performers, volunteers, tablers, guests, entertainment, our amazing sponsors and most importantly our attendees. Without you, our convention would have not come together at all. We had a lot of bumps and crazy turns along the way (both literally and metaphorically) but we made this year happen because nothing makes us happier than to see how everyone’s faces light up when they make friends with other fans and take part in awesome workshops. We hope you enjoyed this year’s convention. Our committee members worked many tireless hours to help put it together. Thank you so much, everyone. We hope you come back again.
If you have any pictures or videos please tag our Facebook or use the tag #kpc13 on your Twitters, Tumblrs, Instagrams, etc. We want to see and relive all the moments again and again. :)
Thank you so much. We are happy that you enjoyed the convention. All the support from fans and feedback is what helps keep it going! Thank you! <3
Not really. Berkeley is not car friendly.
Bagels and cream cheese for breakfast and (I know this will sound bad but heeeeey getting Korean food catered is expensive…) Chinese food for lunch.
A lot of us will be getting Korean food after the first night for dinner though so feel free to mingle and join the groups that wil be going. There are several Korean restaurants on campus.
You’ll need your ID to sign in so if your daebak parents paid your registration under your name then you should be fine. If you logged in and saw your registration payment checked off as well, then you should be good to go. (If not, then I suggest that you send an un-anonymous email to the official kpopcon13 gmail)
But in case I misread your question, we are not associated with KCON. We are KPOPCON, the first KPOP convention to have ever been established in the United States and at the collegiate level. Please read our website and about us section again if you are still confused. We are a fan made convention unlike KCON that was created by Korean entertainment companies.
Accessories, posters, buttons, etc. (They did not specify)
Yes, I would suggest packing a water bottle and sweaters for day one AND TWO, especially TWO since it’s outside. The bay, as you may or may not know, has very temperamental weather. It will be hot and cold and freezing but then oddly warm again.
I’m so excited! See you soon!
The housing application was up on the website. You should have logged in and the form should have popped up in the circles for you to click and finish. The housing application is now closed again. I hope you got through. :X
That’s good enough! See you soon!!!!!!!
If you requested housing and have received your host’s information, please be sure to email them before Friday so that they know that you’re still staying with them. Also, don’t forget to tell them when you plan to arrive so that they can plan accordingly. Some of them are part of the KPC committee and will need to be on site earlier than most registrants. :)
If you requested housing and did not receive an email from us with information about your host, you should have ALSO completed the housing form that was issued afterwards. If you did not do this, then you probably did not receive an email because that had to be completed in order for us to find you housing. If you did complete the housing form (log into your account and double check) then please send an official email to see what the housing department can do. Unfortunately, we did stop accepting housing requests last week and it is almost impossible to find people wiling to house people this late in the game but if we did make a mistake we will try to do what we can.
Well, I’m not going to lie…I live 10 minutes away from the registration location, Kroeber Plaza (Bancroft and College Ave) and 13 minutes away from the main location, I-House (Bancroft and Piedmont Ave). It’s quite an uphill walk. If you walk from the BART station, it takes about 25 minutes, according to google maps. If you take the bus, 12 minutes, according to google maps.
If you hate waiting for buses, paying for them, or love walking (like me)- Walk up from Shattuck until you get to Bancroft and then go up Bancroft towards campus until you get to College, where you will most likely see us with the registration table and balloons.
If you take the bus, you should take the 51B at the bus stop outside of the BART station close to Shattuck and Allston Way. The bus will go down Shattuck and up Durant Ave. You will need to get off on the College Ave. stop and then make a left towards campus again, until you reach Bancroft (which is really only one street away) and see us at the registration table.
After the registration stop, you can then hike up to I-House.
Consider it a warm up for the dance workshops. ;D
Hope this helps. See you soon~
