It's Thursday and that means a new batch of artists have been announced for this year's KCON 2018 LA! Four artists were announced today.
The first artist is popular girl group TWICE! The nine-member girl group visited KCON 2016 LA and KCON 2017 NY and have been churning hit after hit in Korea, cementing their place among the top of girl groups in the 3rd generation. It was hinted on one of their recent V Lives. The girl group released 'What is Love?' earlier this year along with 'Heart Shaker' at the end of this year. The girl group will be releasing a special song 'Dance The Night Away' on July 9th.
NU'EST W is the second artist announced! This marks the group's return to KCON since the inaugural KCON back in 2012. However, this will be the first time as a sub-unit that the group will be at KCON as member Minhyun is currently participating in WANNA ONE. The quartet just came back earlier this week with 'Dejavu' after an 8-month hiatus. The group has been wildly popular due to their participation in Produce 101 Season 2 last year and their songs experienced a revival after the conclusion of the show.
Following NU'EST W is boy group IN2IT, a group formed from survival show 'Boys24'. This was a grueling 1 year and 6 months where the participants held a total of 260 concert performances. The now 7-member group debuted with 'Carpe Diem' and title track 'Amazing' last October. They recently released 'Snapshot' in April and also performed at KCON Japan this year.
Last but not least is duo Davichi, who makes their second KCON LA appearance in a row. They have been on the music scene for 10 years now with hits such as '8282' and 'Turtle'. Their last release 'Days Without You' featured Wanna One's Kang Daniel and was a part of their 10-year anniversary album '&10'.
Today's artists will be joining the likes of Chungha, Crush, Dynamic Duo, fromis_9, Momoland, Seventeen, and Wanna One.
