KCON is known as the world’s largest K-culture festival held annually for K-pop fans across the globe. The said event has already been visited by around 823,000 fans in North & South Americas, Europe, Asia, Middle East, and Oceania for the previous year. According to Hello KPop, KCON has collected ahead of one million cumulative audiences worldwide.
As reported by The Jakarta Post, the conventions that will take place alongside K-Pop concerts for this year will feature a number of separate events to attract local fans including beauty-themed “KCON Girls” and “KCON Rookies,” a showcase for up-and-coming K-pop artists.
The organizers of CJ E&M have also said that the number of attendees is expected to surpass 1 million this year.
The first KCON event was held seven years ago in California and has since grown into a global festival that encompasses K-pop, beauty, fashion, TV and lifestyles.
