Tours are divided into genres: Korean and Chinese pop culture; music; anime and games; and “others.” There are plenty of choices for the growing K-pop crowd. Trips to Seoul can include a “fan meeting” with boy band Big Bang, where participants can enjoy a private mini-concert, a chat with the guys in the band and a “high-five session” (less strenuous than a handshake, more intimate than a bow?). For more one-on-one time with a star, the “Summer Holidays with S.H.S” is a three-day getaway at a resort outside of Seoul with singer Shin Hye Sung.

The music-themed trips are pretty wide ranging, from a trip to Shizuoka for a show by Japanese band AAA to a flight to Los Angeles to see the Jonas Brothers. While AAA will pose for a picture and hang out a bit, fans of the Jonas brothers will have to settle for some concert swag.
