Although the day started off rough with heavy rains, clearly Mother Nature got the memo that the second day of KCON 2017 NY Presented by Toyota was beginning. By the time former Coco Avenue's Jenny Lyric took the Convention Stage for a surprise morning performance, the sun was shining, the sky was clear, and there were already people lining up for the concert's general admission. These fans were not about to miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to see their faves up close-one Once, the name for Twice's loving fans, even braved the rain and camped out in line overnight. That's some serious dedication.

For American fans of Korean culture-everything spanning from K-Pop to Korean skincare to even Korea's avid gaming scene-KCON USA is the highlight of the year. With so many opportunities to win great prizes and meet and interact with your favorite idols, it might even be the highlight of a lifetime to fans of the growing Hallyu movement!

KCON 2017 NY Presented by Toyota kicked off its third consecutive year on Friday, Jun. 23 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The day started off strong with a special appearance by SF9 at the convention stage, where members of the FNC rookie group greeted the early-bird fans.
