Some of these include a meet and greet with YouTube star and violinist JUN, an art workshop with Tiffany Lui, and a panel on the K-pop industry with journalists Jeff Benjamin and Lai Frances.
Across the board, CJ ENM has prepared a variety of programs through which global fans can interact and share their love of K-Pop with each other and with their favorite artists, despite not being physically together. More interactive elements will be added to popular programs including “personal talk” and “live chat” experiences with the artists to capture the hearts of K-Pop fans all over the world. More content catered for US fans will be announced shortly.
KCON:TACT HI 5, which has garnered increasing attention with the release of its first artist lineup, can be streamed by fans in the U.S. and around the world on the KCON official and Mnet K-POP YouTube channels. The event will also be streamed exclusively on TVING in South Korea.
