This Saturday, thousands of K-pop fanatics will descend upon Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Irvine for KCON, a super-charged convention celebrating all things hallyu. K-pop–that's Korean pop for the uninitiated–is moving at a speed faster than Psy's pelvic thrusts, and the first-ever U.S. event will let devotees get some glorious face time with their favorite artists. There'll be shows (4Minute! VIXX! B.A.P.! Exo-M! Nu'est!), industry-led workshops,
idol worship autograph sessions and–yes–a whirlwind of crazy, eye-popping K-pop fashion.
Yi will be co-leading a KCON workshop on how to get the K-pop look for less. For more details about the event, visit www.kconusa.com and follow KCON on Facebook. Tickets start at $40.
