Another two K-pop acts are heading to Madison Square Garden this July for this year’s KCON New York -- and one of them hasn’t even released their first album yet.
On Thursday (May 2), KCON USA announced that girl group IZ*ONE and boy band AB6IX will join other K-pop groups ATEEZ, EVERGLOW, NU’EST, SF9 and TXT at KCON New York this year. The East Coast leg of the bicoastal annual Korean pop culture convention and concert event will take place at Madison Square Garden and Manhattan’s Javits Center on July 6 and 7.
IZ*ONE is a 12-member act that was produced last year through the Korean reality television show Produce 48, and features both Korean and Japanese members pulled from the world of K-pop hopefuls and Japan’s AKB48 entity. The act made major waves with their debut single “La Vie En Rose” last October, and released their second single, continuing the flowery title trend with “Violeta” in April.
