Comic Con Seoul stuck to its goal of making each year bigger and better, with its third year bringing more guests and activities.

Along with an all new (and bigger) setup for cosplayers that allowed more people to get ready at the event as well as store their luggage, the event featured more panels by local pop culture experts and influencers. It also brought in more international guests, featuring three Hollywood stars and several Japanese voice actors.

For many, the highlights of the event were none other than the three top guests - Pom Klementieff (who plays Mantis in the MCU), Billy Body (known for playing Pippin in โ€œLord of the Ringsโ€, and Kevin McNally (Gibbs from the Pirates of the Carribean franchise). All three did several panels, photo ops and autograph ops throughout the weekend.

And Groove Korea was there to see and experience it all. Take a look at some of the photos and check out our exclusive interviews with stars Billy Boyd and Pom Klementieff.
