Two amazing artists have been revealed for the LA lineup of KCON 2016!
What better way to excite fans about KCON than to reveal that the amazing Block B AND GFriend will be performing this year?!
Block B, the 7 member group, have just recently made their comeback with “Toy” and their 5th mini album ‘Blooming Period’. The hip-hop group who have been around the music scene for the past couple of years despite label changes and other obstacles, have come back stronger than ever and have taken the K-POP music scene by storm! Not only as a group do they garner a lot of attention and support, but various members including Zico, Kyung and Taeil have made their own solo debuts. Meanwhile members U-Kwon, B-Bomb and P.O created a subunit called BASTARZ. All in all, they are definitely an act you don’t want to miss out on!
This is Block B’s second year performing at KCON as they attended the event last year. As we mentioned before, for KCON New York, Mamamoo and Seventeen are the only acts that have been revealed as of yet.
Rookie girl group GFriend will also be performing alongside of them in this year’s LA lineup! The fresh, pure and young ladies deceive with their strong choreography yet gorgeous vocals and visuals! Only having made their debut last year, the girls have made their mark in the music industry with their hits such as ‘Glass Bead Love‘ and ‘Me Gustas Tu‘! They even got their first win within only a year of debut with ‘Rough‘, which they are currently promoting now!
