(PCM) We have to say that the LINE Webtoon Green Room party held at the Altitude Sky Lounge during San Diego Comic Con was absolutely top-notch! We had an absolute blast! The music was bumping as the elevators whisked us away to a gorgeous roof deck that featured fire pits, themed cocktails, delicious finger food and a fully function casino night!
Those LINE Webtoon poker chips we received upon entry truly came in handy as we spent the evening sipping drinks while playing games such as poker and roulette. The coolest part was that the more chips you won throughout the evening could then be traded in for a chance to win entry to LINE Webtoon’s upcoming party at New York Comic Con this October! Talk about a big win!
This party was so great, we absolutely can’t wait to see what will happen when LINE Webtoon takes over a spot in the Big Apple!
