Hey guys! This is one of the hosts of KPoppin' It: Anime Style.
We would love to hear what you think went well and what you think we could improve.

But first, the panelist feedback:
I want to thank you guys again for coming and being an amazing group.
Everyone was awesome, so respectful and sweet, we appreciate it!

Thanks again!

Sorry for my glacial response time. I was the Tech during your presentation. I loved how much the attendees enjoyed your panel. The room was a full house from start to finish! You did great!!

Ya'll definitely need a bigger room next year; it was packed! Overall the panel seemed like a lot of fun, especially for people who came out to celebrate K-pop and talk about their favorite groups and members.

As someone who could be called - at best - a causal K-pop fan, the panel did not quite fit what I'd expected. It seemed like generally, the panel was geared towards those who were already deep into K-pop culture. I'm not sure I'd say that this was a bad thing, since the best parts of the panel were instances where the audience was enthusiastically participating, but it's something to keep in mind.

I was sitting in the front, and it seemed like the games section got away from you a little bit. There were a few instances where the groups around me were annoyed by the way the games were conducted, and at least one other time where it seemed like the tickets were being rationed. Unless there was something else going on (e.g. you needed the tickets for a later panel), there really isn't a big reason not to give out a bunch of tickets if you're doing a raffle. Ultimately, you guys recovered well and the panel ended on an awesome note, but there were a few moments where it was more tense than it needed to be.

Sorry about that! We could possibly hold an "Introduction to KPop" panel, but typically our audience mainly consists of longtime kpop fans and we need to spend time talking about KPop in Japan/Anime (to meet AB's guidelines).

I will completely agree with you here, although it was more a time thing. We had to cut things out and such as we were running out of time.

As for the BTS song - which is the tense moment I assume you're talking about? That was my bad and I'll own up to it. I forgot the song has an official english title. I was initially looking for the Korean or a literal translation of the Korean title (흥 excitement/fun/hyped, 타다 to ride, 소년단 boy scouts). So I'm sorry to those who may have answered correctly!
