We're only a week away before KCON 2017 AUSTRALIA arrives!! OMG!

To get ready for the arrival of the biggest Korean culture and K-pop festival in the world, we thought we'd give you a few handy tips in regards to appropriate fan etiquette, as so not to make the mistakes made by fans who have gone before you!

1. Don't leave a bro hanging.

There will be a number of opportunities to see your faves at KCON and if a star extends his hands to you, the polite thing to do is to shake it. Poor Kim Soohyun.  

2. Don’t go OTT with affections, because like.... they have feelings too. 

In the video below, Infinite's Sungkyu gets told by a fan that she’d like him 2nd best (after Sungjong) if he did as she asked. Sungkyu then jokes that he doesn't need "2nd place" and that "Lee Sungjong doesn’t like you" >< 


3. Don’t scream at your idols when they are 30cm away from you.

There is concert voice, then there's fan meet voice. Don't get them confused.

4. Don't say the obvious. 

Fans of Infinite's Sungkyu tells him he's handsome, to which he shouts back, "I know!"  

Well, duh >< 

5. Don't cross the line and touch anyone. No means no. 

Unless you're given permission, don't touch anyone.

6. Don't throw objects at anyone

No one enjoys a water bottle to the face. Or anything to the face.

7. Unless you love super-awkward moments, don't outstay your welcome. 

There are other fans waiting to get their awkward moments as well!

8. Keep an eye out for one another

We're all there to have a good time at KCON, so look out for one another and everything will be better for it!
