General Information

Everything is still currently under construction. Please give me some time to get everything to 100%. ^^ Suggestions for info you'd like to see are more than welcome! : 3


Next Seoul Comic World Dates:
Seoul Comic World 104 - August 27, 28 - SETEC-Saturday (27) - 10:30 - 5:30
-Sunday (28) - 10:00 - 5:30------------------------------------------------------

Price: 4,000 won
Cosplay: Cosplay is allowed at Seoul Comic World. HOWEVER, you MUST change when you reach the convention center and before you leave the convention center.

Changing: There are changing areas for cosplayers. Do not change in the bathrooms please. The staff is crazy about this rule. The only exception is at SETEC. At SETEC the center is connected to the subway, so changing in those bathrooms is okay for the most part. You can also do your hair, make-up, etc. in the subway or when you get inside the center. Just please be polite and don't make messes. ^ ^

Bags: There is a baggage check. Lockers are also available if you're able to snatch one up. Checking a bag is 500 won, and the amount is non refundable. If you need to get something out of your bag half way through the day and then have to put it back, you have to pay an additional 500 won. The bags are fairly large and my friends and I usually just put all of our things in one bag, so don't worry too much about how much you can fit for the most part. ^ ^

Events: The events vary, but are typically cosplay contests (offstage) or skits (onstage), anime singing contests (onstage), drawing contest (offstage), and other types of events are hosted that I am unsure of. ^ ^;

aT Center (http://www.atcenter.co.kr/)
- How to get there: Yangjae Station (Line 3 - orange) Exit ?. You will take a bus after leaving the subway. The bus will be marked with aT Center on it. If you're still unsure, follow the crowd.

Wow Sarah! I can't believe you actually made a thread about this... I kind of needed it, since I was looking up the newest times on my work computer, but the government denies access to Seoul's Comic World... Awesome job!

You rock!

Yeah... LOL I figured it needed to be made since a lot of people don't know korean or how to get to the con.
I wonder how we can get this stickied? meh.

Thanks. ^ ^

Spain-bozu~ I decided to be helpful-ish (mainly because I've run out of fur for Viral, and I'm on strike against Haku again). Do Try to turn this into normal English if you can~
As such here is some extra info(perhaps?)

Comic World 105:
October 22nd and 23rd at AT Center (http://www.atcenter.co.kr)
Events are Sat: 10:30am to 5pm Sun: 10am to 5pm.
They open early Sat 9:30am and Sun 9am for those groups who need time to get ready (as far as I can tell this means cosplayers) over the general spectators.

blah blah blah.. lots of info on pre-ordering booths, not sure if this is vendor booths or artist alley type booths since I've never been (so I'll leave that decision up to you.) If anyone is interested but can't Korean, just send them to me, it's a lot of translation on the order form that I don't want to do if I don't have to.

Spectator Rules:1. You must buy a Comic World Admission Ticket in order to enter the Exhibit Hall.
2. Please consult the Event Guild (http://www.comicw.co.kr/bbs/zboard.php?id=event_list) on the Event Page of the Comic World Home page.*
3. Please do not take pictures of participants without their permission first.
*Translating the Events for English Speakers is my next goal tonight and will be posted upon completion. Right now is only 104 Events but those are more relevant anyways.
