Big Hit Entertainment male group BTS (Bangtan Boys) established their presence at KCON with one of the most solid stages of day two.

KCON attendees who were unfamiliar with the popularity of BTS in the United States, received a crash introduction to one of the most promising acts in Korean entertainment. BTS has spent the past month in the United States to study with an acclaimed American choreographer, while filming their program, “American Hustle.”

BTS developed a deeper 90’s R&B and hip hop aesthetic under the tutelage of artists like Coolio. Coolio is best known for the edgy 1995 album “Gangsta’s Paradise” which claimed the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at the time of its release.

BTS appeared at a fan engagement at KCON in which they answered questions and provided a fan signing.

The group also filmed with Parker (Dumbfoundead) and 1TYME’s Danny Im for the Mnet America program “Danny from LA.”

BTS delivered one of the best performances of the second night of KCON. Their set list included “Boy In Luv,” “No More Dreams,” “We are Bulletproof Part 2,” “I Like It,” and “Attack on Bangtan.” Noticeably absent for international fans was standout track “N.O.”

The group capped off the success of the “M! Countdown LA” performance with by releasing the track “Let Me Know.”

“Let Me Know” is an emotionally stirring song which is a pre-release from the upcoming full BTS album “Dark & Wild.”

“Dark & Wild” is a fourteen track, full length album for the hip-hop influenced group whose previous releases include their debut single album “2 Cool 4 Skool,” which was followed by the EP “O!RUL8,2?,” and “Skool Luv Affair.”
