On April 12, the LA K-Pop Festival was held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The event was created to celebrate the 111th anniversary of Korean American immigration.

Sponsored by KBS, this day long event started with a festival, featuring Korean food, dramas and of course, K-Pop! The main stage featured a K-Pop talent competition in which the winner would receive a trip to Korea and prize money. But of course, the big attraction of the day was a free concert featuring performances by SHINee, 2PM, InfiniteSISTAR, CNBLUEGirl’s Day, Dynamic Duo, Kim Tae Woo, Baek Ji Young, Sul Won Do, Lena Park and Song So Hee. The show was hosted by 2PM’s Taecyeon, announcer Hwang Soo Kyung and CNBLUE’s Yonghwa.
