S. Korea to host its first Comic Con in August

Fans of comic books and pop culture in South Korea will no longer have to go abroad to enjoy international comic conventions.

Read Exhibitions, the world’s leading event organizer, said Tuesday that it will hold South Korea’s first Comic Con event at the COEX exhibition center in southern Seoul from Aug. 4 through 6.

“Comic Con,” short for Comic Convention, is a huge festival that presents the best of comics and other fields of pop culture, including movies, TV dramas, video games, cosplay, animation, toys and more. It began as a small exhibition of comics in San Diego in the 1970s but many big cities around the world now have their own Comic Cons.
