To be honest my family and I watch this show whenever it is playing on MNet America. For us it is interesting to see other Americans that are interested in KPop and the culture surrounding the Korean Wave that has hit the world. Personally “the hashtag” has helped my sister and I connect with other people world wide who like KPop and all things Korean related.

Our family’s involvement with KPop began about two years ago and it has led us to find other Korean related things that we love. For example my two year old niece loves watching Pororo and has a habit of yelling “Omo” when she gets excited. My sister-in-law and father are K-Drama Super Fans. My younger sister was an online admin for Teen Top [Twitter account: @Its_TeenTop]and had the opportunity to chat with them. My mother, sister, sister-in-law and I are obsessed with K-Beauty products and skin care products. And the list goes on. LOL

Over all my family was very much interested in this television program and found it to be interesting to see how KPop has influenced the interests and lives of other American KPop fans.

This show follows a diverse group of KPop enthusiasts over their three day journey through KCon 2013. From their background story to their final thoughts on KCon you get a look in to the life of each individual.

After watching this show my family has grown closer and we are now experiencing more Korean Cultural things together. Our ultimate goal is to attend K-Con 2015, hopefully we make it. I want to go for the cosmetics and my sister wants to go for the K-Pop stars and strangely enough my father wants to go to meet some actors. LOL
