First held in 2012 in the U.S., KCON played an instrumental role in spreading K-Culture throughout the world. The event has amassed millions of fans across nine cities/regions in North America, Europe, Asia, and more. From its first event, which attracted 10,000 visitors, KCON has seen incredible growth, gathering 291,000 attendees in 2019 (the last in-person event). During the pandemic, the event went virtual with "KCON:TACT," which has seen more than 22 million K-pop fans tune in over the last two years.
"K-culture is sweeping the world, and KCON 2022 LA is the epicenter of the culture-quake that expanded the influence of Korean art, music and film to the rest of the world," said company spokesman James Lee. "We can't wait to join fans, content creators and K-Culture celebrities alike back in the place where the movement began back in 2012. We look forward not only to meeting new fans, but also to bringing the 4 million-plus members of our FANTOO app all the big news and exclusive content from the show."
