KCON announces Monsta X, Zion.T, and Crush for LA concert lineup!
Knock, knock! The west coast lineup for KCON is ever growing! On Monday, organizers announced rookie group Monsta X would be added to the lineup. Adding to the excitement, on Wednesday it was announced top R&B artists Zion.T and Crush will also be joining the likes of Shinhwa, AOA, and Super Junior for the Los Angeles convention!
MONSTA X is the rookie hip-hop boy group formed from the winners of Starship Entertainment’s idol survivor show NO.MERCY. The group is comprised of seven members, pictured above as (top row) Shownu, Hyungwon, I.M, Kihyun, Jooheon, (bottom row) Minhyuk and Wonho . On May 14, 2015, MONSTA X released their highly anticipated mini-album Trespass and made their broadcast performance debut on Mnet’s M! Countdown. The video currently has over 1 million views on YouTube and was included on DramaFever's K-Pop Corner as a song that impressed from May 2015!
Zion.T and Crush are two of the hottest names in Korean R&B. Zion.T first broke onto the scene in 2011 with his hit track “Click Me.” He followed up this success with his first full-length album Red Light in 2012 and has since produced and been featured on singles including Infinite H’s “Without You” and G-Dragon’s “I Love It.” His younger Amoeba Culture label-mate Crush is also known for his work as a producer and has teamed up with such artists as Gary, Dynamic Duo, Supreme Team, and Jay Park. Crush’s debut album Crush on You dropped in June 2014. The friends recently collaborated on a project album titled Young, and the lead single "Just" was one of the top ten most viewed K-pop videos in America and internationally this past February.
