KCON LA gave lots of newer K-pop groups the chance to be in the spotlight. With groups like MOMOLAND, IMFACT, Fromis 9, and Golden Child, the festival brought a huge variety of the different sounds currently emanating from K-pop today. Strangely enough, this year, KCON LA did something I’ve not seen in K-pop yet; they identified sub-genres at the various performances, even dividing KLUB KCON into three different line-ups.
For the first time, K-EDM was showcased with one group standing out. IN2IT debuted less than a year ago and has made quite the splash with their upbeat poppy songs and hyper active dance moves, but are they EDM? I’m not sure I agree with that label, but I will say they are fun as hell and made an impression that stood out to me and lots of others at the event this year.
But it all started with Friday’s KCON Convention Stage performance during the Super Rookie Showcase, which was a feature that allowed fans who attended the convention to still get up close and personal with their new favorite groups.
IN2IT stepped out on the stage in the middle of the convention floor to a packed crowd, fans all pressing against each other to get close to these new faves. The mini event had the group introducing themselves, answering basic questions, even teaching the host a few dance moves!
They were very excited to not only be in the US, but to see such a crowd that was also excited to see them. They performed their two singles, “Snapshot” and then “Sorry for My English“.
This was such a great opportunity for fans, especially those who were unable to attend the concert!
Of course, Saturday night, IN2IT hit the KCON LA stage hard in Staples Center to a packed house of cheering fans.
Their high-energy performance is one to remember and has encouraged us to definitely keep an eye on future releases from this new K-pop group.
Editor’s Note: These dudes are kings!
