First kicking off Los Angeles in 2012 and attended by 10,000 fans, KCON has been the center of bringing all things Hallyu.
Just last year, KCON was brought to both coasts of the U.S. in Los Angeles and Newark, NJ. The L.A. convention expanded to three days and attracted 58,000 fans along with artists like GOT7, SISTAR, Shinhwa, AOA, Zion.T & Crush performing. While Newark garnered 17,000 fans in attendance and had Girls’ Generation, AOA, VIXX and Teen Top perform for their first KCON.
