The first artists heading to the West Coast leg of this year’s KCON USA event are the immensely popular soloist Chung Ha and the 11-member boy band Wanna One.
The pair of K-pop acts will perform at KCON 2018 LA throughout the weekend of August 10-12. It will return to Staples Center and the Los Angeles Convention Center, where it has been held since 2015.
Both Wanna One and Chung Ha are top K-pop acts that grew out of the popular South Korean television show Produce 101, which is produced by KCON sponsor Mnet. Wanna One resulted after the 2017 season, while Chung Ha was one of the inaugural 2016 season’s winners, which landed her a role in the girl group I.O.I.
