Newly Added Artists:
-       [Los Angeles] Shinhwa debuted in 1998 and is the longest running boyband in Korean pop history. With a run like that, the fact that Shinhwa is the Korean word for legend is not a joke, especially considering their enthusiastic fanbase who are set to color KCON with their signature orange. The group recently dropped their 17th album "We" in March, which is a compilation of tracks from the group's history. The six member group is currently under Good Entertainment.
-       [New York] VIXX released their first album "Super Hero" in 2012, and has since become one of the more popular groups in the K-pop scene. Known for their stage performances and concept, VIXX performed at the first KCON in 2012 and most recently appeared at the Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day event held at the National Mall in Washington DC. VIXX is under Jellyfish Entertainment and released their "Boys' Record" this February.
KCON is produced by CJ E&M, Asia's leading content company, and its global music channel Mnet, giving fans the ultimate Hallyu (a.k.a. the Korean Wave) experience.
