For those unaware of what fan-cons are all about, they are typically events in which fans of a particular film, television series, comic book, actor, or an entire genre of entertainment, gather to participate and hold programs and other events. What is also the biggest highlight is that fans get to meet experts, famous personalities, and each other up-close-and-personal. Some also incorporate commercial activity. In the case of a K-pop group going online for the event, this means it will be interactive with the members, virtually. It's common that Q&A sessions will be held. It's unclear as to what extent the offline format will present, but it will most likely feature performances of sorts by The Boyz.
Meanwhile, the K-pop group saw their first-ever platinum certification from the Gaon Chart this week, for their latest project 'Chase'.
