    KCON to Return to So Cal This August - It's a K-Pop event

    K-Pop is coming back to L.A. in the form of KCON.

    Building on the success of last year's inaugural event, KCON is returning to Southern California this August, expanding the biggest fan celebration of Korean entertainment and culture to two days and taking over a larger venue in the heart of Los Angeles. Last year's one-day convention and concert drew over 10,000 fans from all across the U.S.

    One day isn't enough, so a second day has been added. You need more K-Pop in your life.

    KCON will be produced by Mnet America, a youth entertainment brand for all things Asian cool, which includes the biggest national, English-language lifestyle network in the U.S. for fans of Asian pop culture.

    KCON 2013 will be packed with activities aimed at giving attendees the unique access that only KCON can offer. With a schedule filled with artist meet-and-greets, photo ops, celebrity panels, contests and fan workshops, everyone from the super-fan of K-Pop and K-Drama to those ready to be initiated into the global Hallyu, or Korean Wave movement, will get lost in an experience unlike any other in the country.

    But wait, there's more.

    Capping off two-days of total Korean entertainment immersion will be the first ever U.S.-hosted episode of the No.1 K-Pop chart show, M COUNTDOWN in the form of a star-studded K-Pop concert that fans will not want to miss. Line-up details will be released as they become available through the summer.

    Wow and wow.

    KCON is set to take place on August 24 and 25 at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California.

    If you love the K-Pop genre, you've gotta go!
