In order to ensure a safe and truly unforgettable KCON experience for everyone, we require you to observe the following rules while attending the KCON Convention (the “Convention”) and the M COUNTDOWN Concerts (the “Concert”).
You must respect common sense rules for public behavior, personal interaction, common courtesy, and respect for private property. Harassing or offensive behavior will not be tolerated. CJ reserves the right to revoke, without refund, your Convention wristband and/or Artist Engagement Passes if you do not comply with this policy.
CJ is committed to ensuring that each attendee is in a safe environment that is free of any type of bullying. This includes, but is not limited to, harassment via computer, telephone, cell phone, or text messaging device. Any verbal, textual, or graphic communications that would cause fear of physical harm, intimidation, humiliation, or embarrassment to another person. Any threatening communication sent electronically to another person and any explicit pictures intended to harm another person.
ARTIST ENGAGEMENT PASSES HAVE NO VALUE, ARE NON-NEGOTIABLE, AND CANNOT BE SOLD, REDEEMED OR EXCHANGED FOR CASH. LOST OR STOLEN PASSES WILL NOT BE REPLACED.
Follow guidelines and instructions given by Event staff.

As a courtesy to all Convention featured guests, enter and exit quietly while the programs are in session.
