Separate line-ups for the two days of KCON USA presented by Toyota concerts to be held in Los Angeles have been revealed!
GOT7 and Super Junior D&E are the latest and final additions to the Kpop festival and we already can hear fans screaming from the west coast to the east. Both top boy bands from the Big 3 entertainment agencies, GOT7 and Super Junior D&E will heat up the stages in North America in one month's time!
JYP Entertainment's very own male group GOT7 started off with their Fly in USA 1st Concert Tour in 2016 and returned to the North American land in 2017 for their Flight Log: Turbulence Fanmeet Tour. Making a comeback at KCON LA after their last appearance in 2015 is definitely something to look forward to, since they have more newer songs and upgraded performances to bring to their audience. Recent news also has it that the group's first sub-unit JJ Project, comprising JB and Junior, is also expected to make a return on stage as a duo... (hopefully we can get to see a unit performance at KCON?)
SM Entertainment is quick to fulfill fangirl wishes for long-time fans of Eunhyuk and Donghae, who will be meeting international fans shortly after being discharged from military duties. Eunhyuk was back to being a regular citizen on July 12, while Donghae followed suit two days later and was welcomed back by his "partner-in-crime" today (July 14). The duo's debut track "Oppa, Oppa" instantly became a hit in 2011 and their popularity led to concert tours and more releases for the unit. There is much anticipation for them to perform "Oppa, Oppa" and possible hints for a new release on the KCON stage this year.
KCON LA will be held from August 18 to 20, 2017, with the last two nights being the well-established M! Countdown concerts. Combo ticket sales start on July 14, 10am PST while single ticket sales commence July 17, 10am PST. The concert line-ups for the two separate nights are as follows:
August 19 (Saturday)
Super Junior D&E
August 20 (Sunday)
