In 2010, X-JAPAN's Yoshiki and Seukizo were invited, and last year, the famous Japanese group Chemistry that sang the theme song for 2002 Korean World Cup was invited.

VIXX, the first K-Pop star to be on the OTAKON stage, even held a spontaneous fan meeting after their stage at the request of the fans present, and held an autograph session the day after.

VIXX's agency Jellyfish said, "We had a good conversation about VIXX with the representatives there, and I think we will be able to bring good news soon."
