Teen Top, B1A4 and VIXX Added to KCON 2014
The K-pop boy bands will join Girls' Generation, CNBLUE and more at the L.A.festival this summer
A slew of K-pop boy bands have been added to this year's KCON, America's biggest K-pop convention. After recent stateside performances, VIXX, B1A4 and Teen Top Each will all return to Los Angeles this August.
After wrapping a world tour that included four North American dates, Teen Top returns stateside for their second appearance at a KCON fest. The group premiered their K-Pop Hot 100 Top 10 single "Rocking" at the festival concert last year.
Quintet B1A4 will also hit KCON, their first appearance at the event. The boys are on a hot streak, earning their highest-charting single on the K-Pop Hot 100 this year with "Lonely," peaking at No. 7. The track led their second full-length album "Who Am I" which hit No. 7 on Billboard's World Albums chart.
Since their 2012 debut, VIXX continues to push higher on the charts, earning two Top 40 hits on the K-Pop Hot 100 since they last performed at KCON in 2012. Their highest-charting effort is the No. 13-peaking "G.R.8.U." American fans recently showed VIXX love when the guys' "Hyde" EP from last June hit No. 4 on the World Albums chart. The singers were last promoting in America with concerts in Dallas and L.A. during their "Milky Way" world tour.
The groups are the latest to join K-pop artists Girls' Generation, CNBLUE, IU and BTS on Aug. 9 and 10. Check back for more acts to be announced for what KCON promises to be their biggest lineup ever with two nights of concerts.
