Last week it was revealed that the legendary group Shinhwa will be making their way to LA for this year’s KCON 2015 while VIXX will be performing in New York. They’ve added yet another stellar artist to LA’s lineup, Roy Kim!
Roy Kim is the season four winner of Mnet’s hit singing competition series Superstar K and – to the delight of his many fans – a current student at Georgetown University. His debut single “Spring Spring Spring” off his album “Love Love Love” ruled the Billboard Korea K-Pop Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks, and was ultimately one of the top 10 biggest k-pop singles of 2013. He released a second studio album “Home” in October 2014, which he has described as “k-folk.” Roy has sold more than 10 million digital singles in his native South Korea.
This year’s lineup is shaping up to be another fantastic experience! Fans be sure to update your calendars as individual ticket sales have been moved to June 22nd 2015 for both LA and NY. Platinum and Combo tickets will still go on sale June 18th 2015 at 10AM PT/1PM ET. For further information, check out the press release below.
