The Koreans are coming!
Hallyu - also known as the Korean Wave and long relegated to an afterthought at other conventions - finally steps into the spotlight with KCON, the first-ever large scale convention dedicated to the hottest entertainment coming out of Korea including K-pop, K-drama and Korean movies.
The event will be produced by Mnet, a youth entertainment brand for all things Asian cool, which includes the only national, English-language lifestyle network in the U.S. for fans of Asian pop culture. KCON will be a full-day event ranging from autograph signing sessions and celebrity panels to contests and fan workshops aimed at everyone from the super fan of K-pop and K-drama to those ready to be initiated into the global Korean Wave. Capping off a day of total Korean entertainment immersion will be a star-studded K-pop concert. Concert line-up details will be released at a later date.
KCON is set to take place on Oct. 13 at the Verizon Amphitheater in Anaheim, CA. Tickets for KCON start at only $40 and go on sale Aug. 24. For more information, please visit here. Check out the trailer below, too!
