KCON USA returns to New York and Los Angeles this summer!

KCON USA, the world’s largest Korean culture convention and music festival, returns to New York and Los Angeles this summer. The leader of all things Hallyu (Korean pop culture), KCON USA will have star-studded concerts and their ever expanding expo filled with K-Beauty, K-Food, and K-Tech. KCON will return to Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on June 23 – 24 and the LA Convention Center on August 18-20. The LA show will now feature THREE concerts!

“Our core events in Los Angeles and New York have built the strong foundation for KCON’s rapid global expansion in the past few years,” said HK Shin, President of CJ E&M Music Division, in a press statement released earlier today. “Each successful launch reinforces the idea that Korean pop culture is a worldwide phenomenon of which we are at the forefront.”

Last year’s KCON USA sold out quickly with more than 118,000 Hallyu fans attending the concerts, celebrity meet and greets, workshops, panels, food and fashion, and many more K-culture events. KCON USA plans to make this year’s event bigger and better.
