For the first time ever, KCON was held in Mexico, and WTK was there for every minute of it as one of the press outlets invited to the event. From red carpet to concerts, convention to workshops, WTK covered it all!
Even since early morning on day one, fans were super happy, scratching their tickets and seeing if, in addition to their bought tickets, they would win a hi-touch event or special audience pass. The organization was excellent, and the behavior of the fans was phenomenal. The whole atmosphere was full of happiness and good vibes among all the fans, due to the fact that this is the first time that a Kpop festival of such great importance has been brought to Mexico. All the fans loved it, and in fact, asked for it to return every year.
At 6:00 pm, the fans began to enter the venue to enjoy a great opening of KCON in Mexico. The concert was phenomenal, as BTS opened the show in an impressive way, performing “Not Today,” “Save Me,” “Fire,” “Blood Sweat & Tears,” and “Spring Day.”
This was followed by the performances of Eric Nam. His smooth voice and great personality earned him even more fans as they all went crazy for the singer, especially when he sang “Can’t Help Myself.”
Then followed the only female group of the night as EXID performed songs as “Ah Yeah,” “Up & Down,” and “L.I.E.” They were undoubtedly very well-received by the entire crowd present!
To close, rookie group NCT 127 made a huge impact with their presentation, leaving fans impressed. Performing songs such as “소방차,” “WITHOUT YOU,” “Mad City,” and “Good Thing.” They also danced a cover of Super Junior’s hit song “Sorry Sorry” and had all the fans going crazy with cheers!
It really was a great event and a great first day, with fans already full of stories about the amazing convention and concert and preparing for the next day.
WTK would like to thank SAT Marketing and KCON Mexico for access to the event as press! Stay tuned for day two coverage!
