Verizon Wireless announced the winner of its KCON Flyaway Sweepstakes last Friday, Oct. 5. Nancy Lee and three of her friends will be flying to Irvine, Calif. to experience KCON, the first convention of Korean culture in North America.

As the grand prize winner, Lee and her friends will receive a free flight, hotel accommodations, dinner with K-pop group NU’EST, and other VIP treatment at the event, which runs all day on Oct. 13.

KCON is one of the first Korean culture events not to focus solely on Korean pop music, also known as K-pop. In addition to musical performances by groups 4Minute, VIXX, B.A.P. Exo-M, G.NA and NU’EST, there will also be several panels throughout the day, covering things from fashion, to online gaming, to speed dating.

“It’s going to be a whirlwind of fun,” Lee said. “I’m going to live it up as much as I can.”

Lee was chosen randomly from among thousands of entries from California and Washington state. (end)
