It seems like only yesterday that my co-worker Sarah and I were in sunny Los Angeles for KCON 2016. As most of you already know, KCON is probably the largest gathering of K-POP fans in the United States. This year, MyMusicTaste (MMT) decided to have a booth at the exhibition center. The primary objective? To meet as many of you as possible of course! :D

As MMT is based out of Seoul, Korea, we don't have as many opportunities as we would like to meet with our users and other fans (aside from concerts where we are usually running around like mad). By having a booth at KCON, we can talk to you, hear your feedback about our service and our concerts that you've attended, and you in turn can also meet us in person and ask us any questions you may have about bringing your favorite artists to where you are! :)

Sarah and I arrived in LA with plenty of K-POP swag and some really cool contest ideas to help bring you closer to your favorite artists! One of the contests that we were really excited about was our "Beee Happy Contest," where fans leave a message for Block B and are automatically entered for a chance to have their photo taken with the boys! By Saturday, the messages to the boys had taken up the entire wall! It was so wonderful to see, and the members really enjoyed reading the range of messages from touching to funny to cute.  ♥ ♥

We also brought back our popular #MMTMOMENTS contest for KCON! Fans took pictures at our photo wall and tagged them with the #MMTMOMENTS hashtag. Winners were chosen at random to win exclusive KPOP merch and signed CD's. Above are just a few of the photos that made us smile. Thank you so much for sharing your memories with us! :D :D

One of the highlights (after meeting all of you of course ;) ) were the concerts on Saturday and Sunday night! We were super tired after running the booth all day but we can't miss the shows! The KCON lineup this year was pretty amazing...some of our favorites were Dean, Amber, Twice, Eric Nam, TTS, BTS, Davichi, SHINee and Monsta X. We shared a few of our photos and video on our Instagram account (@_mymusictaste) but here are a few more for your enjoyment pleasure! We saw how much you all loved the BTS photos so we've included a few more just for you. ;) ;)

KCON was all around a truly great experience. We were thrilled that so many of you stopped by our booth to say hello and participate in our events. The next time we go to KCON we will try to plan even more exciting things for you!  ♥
