The Kcon 2014 Concert Experience Written by Lindsay On August 20, 2014

The fragrant smoke from grilling meat fills your nose, the sound of pop music melodies fill the air, and a crowd of hot, sweaty, sunburned but smiling people surround you. Kcon is a world of its own. The largest K-pop related event in North America, it brings fans of K-drama, K-pop music, Korean fashion, and Korean food from all over the world to Los Angeles for the weekend.

There are a million things to talk about when it comes to Kcon but what really sets it apart from any other K-pop fan-organized convention or event is the concert. This year it was a two night extravaganza of some of the biggest names in K-pop and some of the most up-and-coming rookies as well.

Kcon made a lot of big changes this year. That’s to be expected as the convention organizers learn and the convention grows and some of the biggest changes were directly related to the concert itself

"The Admiral: Roaring Currents" is a gripping Joseon Dynasty film which is best viewed in theaters. “The Admiral: Roaring Currents” opened in select theaters on August 15, to widespread praise from critics and audiences. The epic Joseon Dynasty film departs from the usual storyline of domestic conflicts over the crown, to present the mythical historic tale of Admiral Yi and his incredible triumph over a Japanese naval fleet at The Battle of Myeong Nyang.

The Battle of Myeong Nyang was a surreal naval conflict which took place in 1597, during the Japanese invasion of Korea. Admiral Yi Sun Shin conquered a fleet of 330 Japanese warships with a meager 12 Korean battleships, in the treacherous waters of the Myeong Nyang sea.

Admiral Yi was a legendary leader of the Korean naval whose battle technique was reliant on reinforced turtle ships

Winner’s “2014 S/S” Is Fashionably Late, But Still Solid Written by Gaya On August 18, 2014

In the arms race between K-pop’s big three companies, the launch of a new boy band would be considered a major stage. With SM and JYP already off and running with Exo and Got7 respectively, we finally arrive at the final, anticipated debut as YG Entertainment unveils Winner.

It may feel as though Winner is at a disadvantage with its late start, but the group has been in the public eye for a considerable amount of time even before debut: first in the much disparaged show WIN, which gave Winner its name and right to debut as the first YG male group since Big Bang, and then in their pre-debut reality show Winner TV, documenting their adventures as they toured in Japan with Big Bang
