What to expect at the KCON 2017 LA
The three-day Kpop convention in Los Angeles is taking place at the world famous Staples Center on Aug. 18-20 and it will be filled with activities that will allow fans to experience the Korean culture. Of course, attendees will get to enjoy the event’s main highlight of catching a glimpse of their favorite K-pop idols.
To be more exact, the convention will offer the usual two-day concert, workshops, food samplings, and meet and greet with some of the Korean stars. In addition, fans will get to know a lot of K-pop stuffs as this year’s KCON will also hold expanded K-beauty presentations and even e-sports events.
All three newly added acts are slowly making their names in the major K-Wave field. They are surely great additions that will draw in more crowds at the upcoming convention in Staples Center.
Billboard notes that 13-member Seventeen group is taking a short break from its activities in order to attend the KCON 2017 LA. Currently, they are on tour for their North American Diamond Edge performances.
So far, Heize is the only soloist invited to the event. She is one of the fast-rising female hip-hop artists that became known after appearing on Mnet’s hip-hop survival program called Unpretty Rapstar. Heize released her new R&B single titled I Don’t Know You earlier this week.
On the other hand, Cosmic Girls also recently released its new track titled Happy. The song is moving up on music charts and targeting to get the best comeback single for June.
Finally, tickets for KCON 2017 LA will start to be on sale on July 7. Combo tickets that include passes for the events and concerts will begin selling on July 14.
