The Kpop-Alypse is coming, and it is going to blow you away. The first annual KPOP-alypse-KON 2015 will be one to remember. “Philly’s 1ST-EVER Korean pop culture convention” is packed full of excitement. From a wide array of special guests to countless vendor tables, every turn will show something new!
Seven talented guests are planned to perform: “Yeobun-Ui Style” Guest/Performer Jay Kane, “Music Style” Guest/Performer STAMPede, “Music Style” Guest/Performer Gabriela, “Music Style” Guest/Performer Double The FIRE, “Music Style” Guest/Performer Hee Sun Lee, “Music Style” Guest/Performer Alan Z, and “Music Style” Guest/Performer Aaron Lim and Gemini.

The vendor hall will house all different kinds of merchandise, sold by fans for fans. The vendor hall will give artists the chance to show and sell their work, while giving others the chance to find and purchase things you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else! Along with the vendor halls, KPK will also be hosting multiple fun and exciting panels. From Korean fashion trends to dating tips and food reviews, there is so much to learn and see!

The convention will be hosted at the International House Philadelphia Conference Center, a building that was created to help broaden the horizons of the city of Philadelphia and help create and encourage cultural diversity. With over 8,000 square feet, there is plenty of room for attendees to get their K-pop on! The center is located in the heart of Philadelphia’s University City, only a few blocks from The Rotunda, home of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational.
The convention was created by TAKII (ASIAN KARAOKE IDOL INVITATIONAL and TAKII WORLD TOUR), which was founded in 2006. TAKII aims to bring Asian culture around the world, holding some of the most intense events and spreading the diversity of cultures to individuals everywhere. The organization has rocked the foundation of Asian culture fandom and continues to makes waves.
