KCON Los Angeles Tickets
KCON Los Angeles TicketsKCON is a place for American fans to enjoy all things Hallyu. The convention is not only features performances by popular boy/girl K-pop bands, but it's also a celebration of the Korean culture, including movies and television shows. While the event started as a one-day affair, it has since become a valuable festival for Korean companies to join the expansion of the Hallyu wave. The festival does not only allow you to see the biggest names in the Korean entertainment scene and enjoy hi-touches. It also hosts workshops and panels that focus on introducing K-pop fans and other newcomers to the essentials of the Hallyu wave. The festival was started by Korean entertainment companies MNET and CJ&M and Korean entertainment website Koreaboo back in 2012. With the popularity of the Korean wave all over the globe, it has since expanded into other countries like Japan, the United Arab Emirates, France, Mexico and Australia.
More Than K-PopTagged as the biggest convention for Korean pop and culture, KCON has attracted more than a million fans since it debuted as a one-day event in 2012 in Irvine, Calif. During KCON’s early days, its organizers held the event as an opportunity for Korean acts to perform Stateside as there was a demand from American fans. However, that all changed in 2019 with the rise of boy group BTS. In 2019, the KCON Los Angeles festival spanned four days of everything Korean. It was also able to gather more fans as it recorded an attendance of 103,00 K-pop fans. The festival-goers were not just entertained by music from their favorite singers from Korea but were also treated to dozens of booths displaying products sold by beauty-related brands, food companies and other businesses from Korea like entertainment company CJ ENM, the Ministry of SME and Startups and the Korean Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA). With the rise of K-pop in America, KCON organizers are setting their eyes on a new prospect — highlighting people who are behind the rise of the Korean culture as well as lifting the level of Korean film and television dramas in the same spot enjoyed by K-pop in 2019.
