The first Asian preview of the extravaganza is happening now
Who has never heard of the critically acclaimed Games of Thrones series? If you are a big fan, you should make your way to ION Station level B4 between the 2nd and 7th April 2016.
Game of Thrones is a fantasy drama created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. It is based on an adaption of the first volume of A Song of Ice and Fire - a series of epic fantasy novels by the American novelist George R.R. Martin. It takes place on the fictional Westeros and Essos.
The series revolves around three main themes; interweaving wars among several prominent families over the control of Westeros; the threats from the supernatural entities beyond Westeros' northern border; and the ambitious Daenerys Targaryen, the deposed king's exiled daughter, who wants to assume the Iron Throne. To name a few central characters, they are Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Arya Stark, and Ned Stark.
