The 11 members of K-pop boy band Wanna One will be heading to KCON 2018 NY, announced KCON USA today. It will serve as the New York area stop of the act’s world tour, which will take the group to several other cities in the States.
Formed through the second season of the popular Korean television show Produce 101, Wanna One surged to the top of the K-pop race upon their formation last year. Since their debut with the single “Energetic” in August, they’ve amassed a huge following and recently took the No. 4 spot on the Social 50 chart. Last year, they were one of K-pop’s best-selling acts, and their latest album 0+1=1 (I Promise You) , fronted by the single "Boomerang," peaked at No. 10 on the World Albums chart upon its release last month.
Wanna One previously attended KCON 2017 LA last summer.
