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.
