Welcome KCON 2019 NY fans to this very special post about a very special program that’s exclusive to you. That’s right, we’re here to tell you everything you need to know about the KCON STUDIO!
Let’s break it down.
What is the KCON STUDIO?
The KCON STUDIO is a live content creation zone featuring a lot of the KCON special guests you know, and the idols you love. That means we’ll be welcoming you to be part of the studio audience for (and even participate in!) live tapings featuring everyone from Big Marvel to Heyitsfeiii to ATEEZ and (G)I-DLE. We’ll be the big glass rectangle in the Expo Hall so you can’t miss us!
KCON STUDIO programs will run each day from 12:20 PM – 5:00 PM.
How Do I Attend the KCON STUDIO?
For all programs that have an interior live studio audience, you may lineup 10 mins before the program start time. You’ll see a sign in front of the glass studio entry doors stating which program is currently ready for line up. If you step in line, the line manager will give you a number to enter. While interior audience spaces are limited, the walls are glass so you can still get an amazing view of everything happening inside!
For all programs that only have an exterior live studio audience, you may feel free to surround our studio to see everything going on in inside. The programs that are exterior only feature dancing and/or performance which requires use of the entire studio interior. Please see the program descriptions below to see what programs are interior or exterior.
Please note, if you are inside the studio, you will need to leave after each session to give every fan in line chance to come in.
Who Will be Appearing at the KCON STUDIO?
Here’s our cast list! (G)I-DLE, ATEEZ, Ellen and Brian, Heyitsfeiii, Sunny’s Channel, Balming Tiger, Edward Avila, Big Marvel, Aoora, Friday, QxEddie, GoToe, Ohayo Nabong Homecafe, Represent, Coco, Will, and Sobae Kim.
Can You Tell Me More About The KCON STUDIO Programs?
Yes! We’re going to go through each program by event day. Stick with us and read on!
KCON STUDIO – JULY 6, 2019 PROGRAMS
K-Pop Boy Group Dance Compilation with Ellen and Brian
This program is brought to you by M2! Ellen and Brian will take the Studio floor and perform some of the biggest boy group hits. This is an exterior audience program because we want you to have space to dance along with Ellen and Brian. Start your KCON out right and get your feet moving!

Dance Jenga with ATEEZ
We’re told by our friends at M2 that the program will go a little something like this: Watch ATEEZ Mega Dance Jenga! Who will knock down their Jenga and hit the dance challenge? We don’t know for sure who will win, but is there anything more fun than watching a Jenga game where you don’t have to oh-so-carefully pull out tiny wooden blocks?
Did you think that was all? Nope! ATEEZ will also collaborate with you to make their own KCON 2019 “Fan Make MV”! So get your phone ready because your video could be used in their official MV. It’s big job but we know you’re up to the task!
Since this program needs a lot of footage of ATEEZ performing from a ton of fans, this will be an exterior live studio audience program. Need a little ATEEZ inspiration, take in all the wonder of “Wave” now!
DIA’s Beauty Solution Quiz Show with Heyitsfeiii
Brought to you by DIA, beauty expert and all-around lovely Heyitsfeiii will head into the KCON STUDIO to do a “Beauty Solution Quiz” with KCON fans! What products and solutions will Heyitsfeiii reveal to you? Head into the KCON STUDIO to find out!

We suspect this one may take a little explaining but we’re ready to pour in our excitement for this program and tempt you to join us for this KCON first!
Homecafes are currently an Instagram trend in Korea and feature the very beautiful assembling of an equally beautiful drink with themes such as unicorn, mermaid and more. We’ve invited one of our favorite Homecafe artists to join us in the KCON STUDIO and assemble her homecafe live in front of a KCON STUDIO audience.
Curious about what it takes to make a Homecafe or just about what a Homecafe is? We’ve got Coco ready with an interview (and a drink-assembling hand) to get you up to speed. Since this is an interior live audience program, be sure to line up 10 mins before the 3:10 PM start time.
Words may not tempt you, but click on to see all of Ohayo Nabong Homecafe’s beautiful drinks. Beware: Don’t view hungry!
