KCON is the world’s largest convention dedicated to bring “All Things Hallyu (Korean Wave)” to the American fan base. KCON is the one place where every element of Hallyu encompassing pop music, TV dramas, movies, fashion, food, and beauty can be experienced and celebrated. 

KCON began as a one day event in 2012 with over 10,000 attending and has more than doubled annually since to over 128,000 fans. KCON USA is now a five-day festival in two locations: a three-day festival in the enormous Los Angeles Convention Center and Staples Center and a two-day festival in the New York Metro Area at the Prudential Center with two concert nights! 

In 2017, the brand further expanded internationally, presenting KCON in Mexico and Australia as well as returning to Japan. KCON has also held events in France and UAE.

KCON 2018 NY is a celebration bringing more fans, more stars, more panels, and more hi-touches! Let’s KCON!
