Girls' Generation returns to headline KCON 2015 in New York
Get ready, Girls' Generation (SNSD) fans! The 8 members of "Korea's top girl group" are returning to KCON for 2015 and will headline the NY convention!
Announced earlier today via Billboard, Girls' Generation is confirmed to headline KCON's first-ever New York convention on August 8, 2015: "Alongside a slew of still-to-be-revealed acts, the girl group will meet their fans and take the stage at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., after a day-long convention that includes artist meet-and-greets, panels, workshops, food trucks and more." This is the first time SNSD will be returning to NY since the SMTown Live concert in 2011!
Girls' Generation is one of the most well-known K-pop acts in the U.S. and boasts one of the highest-charting Korean albums with last year's Mr.Mr. mini album. The group also won a YouTube Music Award in 2013 and, just last month, earned the most-viewed K-pop video in America and around the world on YouTube for "Catch Me If You Can."
