Does that mean it's more likely Kcon will come to London?

WOO FINALLY~~ Can we now have those kpop friendship kinda concerts over here??? BRING ME SHINEE PEASE~~~

Cool :), are they gone sign that with some European countries since they are doing a brexit? I'm so lost with that Brexit thing.

Basically the UK are leaving the european union and because of that a lot of trade deals are cancelled. Signing with S.korea could open up the possibility of trade deals in the future (which would be nice), and yes, we plan on getting new trade deals with europe when everything is sorted.

Trade deals are being canceled :(, seriously? Thanks for informing me about the brexit, the network news are lacking on the aftermath of it.

The trade deals sort of become void i think. Its all very complicated and even educated brits gets confused.

Okay so does this mean Kcon London? Please make it happen the UK never have kpop artists!

I'll believe it if and when London hosts more Kpop concerts, which as of right now is almost non-existent. Still, nice to see this between London and Seoul as a Brit :)
