"KCON 2014" just got even more exciting.

Mnet's popular music program "M! Countdown" will be held on August 8 and 9 as part of the "KCON 2014" festival.

"M! Countdown" was held on the final day of last year's convention, which was held at the LA Memorial Sports Arena, bringing in a total of 11,000 fans. Last year was the first time "M! Countdown" was held in LA, and the event was such a success that many local media outlets reported on it as well.

"KCON 2014" will be held at the LA Memorial Sports Arena once again on August 9 and 10, providing fans with a collection of K-pop performances in the course of two days.

The lineup includes top Korean artists, including G-Dragon, IU, VIXX, TEEN TOP, B1A4, Girls' Generation, CNBLUE, BTS and more. Bangtan Boys, IU, Jung Joon Young and SPICA will be making their U.S. live debuts at this year's show, according to the LA Times.

Organizers of "KCON 2014" are anticipating around 40,000 fans at this year's event since the festival has grown since last year.

Tickets to this year's KCON are being resold for ridiculously high prices. "KCON 2014" tickets range from $50-$250 individually, with combo packages, with one ticket for each day of the event, ranging from $70-$500.

However, on Ebay, two day tickets are selling anywhere between $170 to over $1,000 for multiple tickets. The demand for "KCON 2014" has been so high that the prices have been hiked up as well.

"Going beyond the music, 'KCON 2014' is bringing out one of the biggest stars from Korea's top rated shows to make a special appearance. Lee Seung-Gi will bring the best of K-Drama to the convention that is already jam-packed with big names. Also for the first time, 'KCON 2014' is bringing over some of the biggest YouTube stars - YD, BuzzBean11, Beautifymeeh, Ssin, Korean Englishman, Dave, K-Tigers. All of these YouTubers are part of the Creator Group, Asia's #1 multi-channel network (MCN)," read a statement from "KCON 2014" organizers, according to the publication NerdReactor.

The description continued, "KCON's extensive roster of special guests further includes Aimee Lee Lucas, Arnelle Nonon, Connie Lim, Crazy Korean Cooking, Dramabeans, DAN aka DAN, Freshly Flipped, Jeff Bernat, Jhameel, Jung Sung Ahn, JREKML, Mister Popo, The Fu and more participating in this year's convention."
