We at London Kpop Street are thrilled that Hallyu Con is this month's special blogger, showcasing the 2021 event edition.
At the heart of Hallyu Con is a platform that shares, showcases and celebrates the Korean Wave in its diverse forms. It provides a unique space where enthusiasts of Korean culture and Kpop can engage in immersive events, share their experiences and connect with one another. For those new to Hallyu Con, it is an annual London-based event organised by UK-based communities that actively engage with, and promote Korean culture.
This year's edition promises to bring all the Hallyu fun of 2020 and so much more!
Hallyu Con Live from London is quickly establishing itself as the Hallyu event not to miss, either as a participant or a viewer. With its aptly named theme for 2021, Healing with Hallyu, we couldn't be more excited to support the event as its official sponsors and provide prizes for the challenge winners (all participants get a unique LKS discount code too!).
We can't wait for the Live Streaming event on the 4th of September - find out more from their blog below.
