 Comprising 90% of K-Pop's fanbase, female fans occupy a special place in the hearts of K-Pop stars. In honor of International Woman's Day (March 8), male idols Yoo Seung Woo, BTOB, and AlphaBAT join with Mwave to gift GLOSSYBOX Special Edition sets to their TOP5 supporters. Also in March, boy group BTOB will appear on MEET&GREET on Thursday, the 13th, at 8:30 P.M. (KST), giving fans the opportunity to obtain autographed copies of the group's 4th mini-album Beep Beep.

With 2PM's Taecyon as the first special guest, MEET&GREET launched in October 2013, with fans purchasing the artist's personally-designed OKCAT goods including USBs, stuffed animals, and other accessories from Mwave Shop in massive numbers. FT Island and U-Kiss were among the K-Pop stars to also host sessions in 2013. In total in 2013, around 25,000 items were sold in four months with an estimated 900,000 fans participating.
