SMTOWN 2012 is returning to California at the Honda Center in Anaheim and will bring with it, the return of the biggest gathering of k-pop fans in North America. Koreaboo is proud to announce that we will be hosting the SMTOWN 2012 LOS ANGELES MEETUP once again, in conjunction with some of the biggest and best names in Korean entertainment.
Fan communities such as SHINee Forums International, Super Junior World, DBSKnights, and Code Exo will be joining us at this historic event to provide fans with goods to support their favorite artists. Glowsticks, t-shirts, stickers and more will be sold and even given out for free by many of the top fan sites for all your favorite SMTOWN artists!
Koreaboo's friends over at Mnet, a media sponsor of this event, will be covering the entire meet up with their film crew, so be sure to come early! Lucky fans will have a chance to be invited to be on some of their top TV shows in both the US and Korea. Additionally, the meet up will also be aired in Korea, so put on your best Hallyu fan gear and be sure to represent your fandom!
There will be numerous contests and prize giveaways, from "best dressed" to "cutest aegyo" and of course, dancing and singing competitions.
Excited for May 20th? So are we! But that's not all, we'll also have lots of contests leading up to the date with ticket-giveaways for SMTOWN and more. Be sure to check out Koreaboo and Mnet America for details.
Dual-Event: GOOGLE-MBC KPOP Concert Tour Bus
Can you believe it? Google is hosting a K-pop dream concert in California just one day after SMTOWN Live! For those who don't have a ticket or transportation, Koreaboo has the perfect solution. Koreaboo will be providing special charter buses from Los Angeles straight to the concert venue and back, along with light snacks! Also, for the fans without tickets to the show, we will be handing them out for free to those coming along for the ride. Every fan on our buses will be guaranteed a seat at the concert, so stayed tuned for more!
Koreaboo's Shuttle Buses will not only be filled with other K-POP fans just like yourself, but we'll be providing amazing small snacks, games, giveaways and more! It'll be as if you're having a private KPOP Event the entire way to the concert!! EVERY PERSON on our shuttle is GUARANTEED a ticket to the concert!!
Shuttles will leave in the morning from Anaheim, stop at Los Angeles and then go straight to the concert location, in Mountain View, California. The buses will then leave almost immediately after the concert, to save our passengers the money on hotels and to ensure everyone is back early on Tuesday morning for school or work.
Each ticket costs $125 and is limited to just 50 seats (UPDATE: ALL SOLD OUT)! So be sure to purchase as soon as possible.
We will e-mail all those who purchase seats with the time and place for pickup. PLEASE PRINT YOUR RECEIPT AND BRING IT WITH YOU!
Bus #1: (50/50 seats taken)
Bus #2: (50/50 seats taken)
Bus #3: (50/50 seats taken)
Bus #4: (50/50 seats taken)
Bus #5: (50/50 sets taken)
Unfortunately, due to the time restraints, bus restrictions and fees that Koreaboo must pay on the extra buses, we have been forced to change the price to $125. We hope that this will not inconvenience our readers too much and you will still be able to enjoy the first ever KPOP PARTY BUS. Every passenger on our kpop party bus is still guaranteed a ticket to the MBC-GOOGLE KPOP CONCERT.
Note: We reserve the right to cancel and refund all purchases of the charter bus if we do not fill up enough seats. KOREABOO IS NOT SELLING TICKETS!! This is a free event and we are only selling seats on our bus. There will be no refunds or cancellations allowed. You can pre-purchase your full meals below. Please remember that including the 9 hour bus to the concert, entire MBC-GOOGLE CONCERT (4 hours), and another bus ride back (9 hours), there will be almost no opportunity to purchase food. There are almost no food vendors near the Ampitheatre either. We'd request that everyone please purchase food packs so we can take care of all of you!! You will receive 4 full meals and 2 snack packs, including drinks.
