KCON 2017 LA already has several of K-pop’s most popular new acts heading its way, and now two more can be added to the list with the addition of boy band Wanna One and co-ed group K.A.R.D.
Neither K.A.R.D nor Wanna One have formally debuted yet, but both will be familiar to many K-pop fans.
K.A.R.D released three pre-debut singles between 2016 and 2017 and gained a large international following for their sharp choreography and their incorporation of dancehall and reggaeton. The quartet has two male and two female members, an atypical structure for K-pop groups within an industry where single-sex acts are dominant. The band’s most recent single, "Rumor," peaked at No. 3 on the World Digital Song Sales chart. K.A.R.D recently held several fan meetings throughout North and South America.
