Rookie group Red Velvet rounds out KCON LA lineup
The KCON Los Angeles concert lineup has been completely announced as organizers added Red Velvet! Capping out at ten acts, the daily lineup was also announced ahead of individual ticket sales. Prepare yourselves!
Red Velvet is a rookie girl group who made their debut last year with hit singles “Happiness” and “Be Natural.” Consisting of Wendy, Seulgi, Irene, Yeri, and Joy (as pictured above), the group was originally four members, but Yeri was added to the group ahead of their newest single in March. Featuring the group in blonde hair, their single "Ice Cream Cake" topped out at #2 on the Billboard World Album Charts and is just short of 18 million views on YouTube!
