On Saturday the 14th of June the admins of K-Australia had the pleasure of attending Supanova in Sydney. For those Officially KMusic readers who don’t know what Supanova is, it is an event that allows people of all fandoms to come face to face with actresses/actors, authors, graphic artists and so much more in one place. Atendees are surrounded by the wonderful world of comics, novels, sci-fi, animes, films, toys, gaming and various fandoms. It is a greatÂ place to let your inner geek shine!
Now you are probably wondering what does this have to do with K-Pop? As our readers proably already know K-Pop and fans of K-Pop are everywhere, so we wanted to show you the K-Pop side to Supanova.
A week before Supanova we set up an event/game for KMusic readers who would be attending to find the K-Ausralia admins who would be in attendance, though it wouldnâ€™t be an easy task. Our readersÂ didnâ€™t know what we looked liked and only knew that we had on K-Australia badges. I was surprised to see that some fans recognised us so quickly, it was great to chat with them and get to know them better.
When you have K-Pop on your mind you can find K-Pop references to anything! While walking around we took a few photos of them, see if you can guess what they are.
We had some fans fill out a quiz on K-Pop to determine the â€˜Top Aussie K-Pop Fan!â€™ WeÂ were surprised at how many people got the questions right. Now without further adue the “Top Male Aussie K-Pop Fan” is Artishat Chantikel who got 18 out of 18! The “Top Female Aussie K-Pop Fan” is Moana Reid who also got 18 out of 18!Â Others that deserve recognition are Michaela Montomore, Katherine Ball, Sharnie Hamilton and Kylie Scullin.

The highlight of Supanova for us was seeing all the K-Pop merchandise, you canâ€™t help but fangirl/fanboy over the posters, albums and merchandise.
All in all the day was truly one to remember. We met so many K-Pop fans, talented authors like N&A Lochel, actors such as John Jarrett and talked to so many people from so many different fandoms. I will definitely be attending Supanova next year, will you?
