Does this sound like you?
Have you been dying to discuss all the latest anime? Been looking to find the right ingredients and utensils to make sushi or ramen at home? Want to learn how to spell your name in Japanese or Korean? Are you frustrated about 2NE1’s disbandment and need to vent? Does your room need even more Kpop-related goodies and posters? Do you like wearing those nekomimi ears absolutely everywhere?
If you answered yes in any of the above, then you clearly identify as an Asian culture geek and you will definitely meet like-minded individuals at the PopGen Asia booths and maybe even find a special souvenir to take home with you!
As for those of you with a sweet tooth – don’t worry we have you covered! Choose from a wide selection of delicious Japanese sweets and other Asian snacks, available for sale at some of the stalls throughout the section!
On the other hand, if you are new to the Asian pop culture scene, be sure to keep your eyes and ears open because PopGen Asia will be packed with vibrant colours and sounds! Expect to see fans dressed up as their favourite J-pop or K-pop idol, anime cosplay, music and dancing, as well as some beautiful fan art and other handmade crafts!
