Relive Miami’s great year in Kpop!

It is common to automatically assume when a kpop concert or a group going on tour is announced, it’ll be in California or New York. We had no idea that was about to change….

Jazzy Group USA teased American BBCs with a silhouette image of Block B and asked us to stay tuned. My friend and I already started talking about if we’ll be afford to fly out to see them.

Jazzy then made Christmas come early in Miami. On March 13, 2015, they announced they’ll be bringing us our first kpop group!

Early May, Danny From LA‘s interview with B.A.P went on air. Bang Yongguk told the world he wanted to come to Miami, FL one day.

Gifs, memes, and screen shots of this were seen all over Twitter and Tumblr.

Then finally, D-Day arrived.

Below you will find a couple of the pictures the boys were nice enough to share from their trip to Miami!

The day after the showcase, Miami hosted the first kpop convention in Florida! Kpop Con Miami!

Well known local and even national news outlets reported on the two special events. Billboard, SouthFlorida.com, and the Miami Herald!

A couple months later, a friend of mine told me a kpop store was going to open in Broward.

After stalking the Facebook page closely, it was announced that Kpoppin USA‘s grand opening will be on November 15, 2014! Honestly, I will never forget that day.

Oh wait, let’s rewind a bit! Jazzy Group USA announced back on October 25, 2014 that Miami will be one of the cities Topp Dogg will visit for their showcase tour.

Things got sweeter for those who were going to attend….

Kpoppin USA hosted a hi touch event at their store. Check out their Facebook album.

After much anticipation, February 7, 2015 arrived.

Apparently, we weren’t the only ones who were excited. Here are some pictures and videos Topp Dogg shared during their stay.

On March 29th, 2015, after a few hints and some whispers, CL shocked American Blackjacks.

CL performed at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival with Skrillex, Diplo, and more that same night.

Fans who follow kpop closely know we get opportunities to bring artists/concerts to our cities. Unfortunately, we did not get enough votes to bring the Unite The Mic tour to Miami and things did not work out with Epik High. Hopefully next time, we’ll be able to work together and make it happen.
