This year at KCON, there’s a lot of exciting panels, influencers, and celebrities that should not be missed. Here’s the breakdown of the must-see panels and artists of each day:

Friday, June 23

Start things off by attending the Explore Seoul’s Hottest K-beauty Spots panel from 12:30pm-1:30pm, hosted by our very own Charlotte Cho. Charlotte goes to Korea about seven times a year, so she knows literally every single place to find coveted beauty items. She’ll talk about where you can find all the trendy K-beauty products and the newest product innovations in Seoul. She’ll also show you her latest obsessions!

Once that’s finished, rush over to the Meet & Greet with GoToe, the pharmacist by day and the awesome and hilarious video creator by night. We recently interviewed him and we guarantee his videos will make you laugh. His meet and greet starts at 1:30pm and ends at 2pm.

At 3:30pm, go hang out with Charlotte again at her DIY Skin Care panel with “Hey It’s Feiii,” where they will talk about all the cool ways you can easily create your own Korean skin care products, plus what you definitely shouldn’t DIY. Fei is the perfect person to talk to about this topic since she’s known to try a variety of crazy products. Check out our interview with her here.

At night, you’ll want to stick around for the concert, which will feature Zion.T and the super popular boy band SF9:

Saturday, June 24th

Start your day off at 11:30am with one of the most exciting panels of the convention: K-beauty on a Budget. Charlotte will be hanging out with two of our favorite K-beauty influencers: Edward Avila and Joan Kim. In our interview with Joan, she talked a lot about affordable K-beauty options, so we’ll be listening to what she has to say during the panel. Plus, Charlotte, Edward, and Joan will be revealing some amazing K-beauty dupes for expensive American products!

At 1pm, head over to the Meet & Greet with Sunny’s Channel. She’s one of the biggest K-beauty influencers and creates stunning looks, like these:

At night, one of our favorite Korean bands will take the main stage: Twice:
