CJ E&M America's New Short Form Video Destination to Officially Launch with 20-Plus Hours of Live Video to Fans of Hallyu

Highlights to include Celebrity Guest Interviews, Exclusive Full Concert Streams and Access to Convention Panels and Workshops

CJ E&M America, the producer and organizer of leading K-pop and Hallyu fan festival KCON USA presented by Toyota, is kicking off the official launch of KCON.TV – a new short form video platform and online community that is dedicated to all things Korean entertainment – with unprecedented live streamed coverage from their flagship event - KCON Los Angeles. 

Taking place Friday, July 29 through Sunday, July 31 at the L.A. Convention Center, Staples Center and Club Novo, KCON 2016 LA features three days of festivities and two nights of concerts that are expected to attract tens of thousands of fans from all across the country and beyond. KCON.TV brings KCON directly to those who either cannot personally be in attendance, or to fans who want to experience the festival and its related content on demand year-round. 

This weekend, KCON will be live streaming both on Facebook Live (Facebook.com/KCONTV) as well as the new KCON.TV platform (KCON.TV/LIVE), with more than 20 hours of live, original, exclusive video content. This includes celebrity interviews, highlights of the convention floor (including panels, workshops, KCON Beauty Block and KCON Food Street) and streams from the full M Countdown Concerts

KCON.TV's live streaming coverage will be hosted from the KCON.TV Stage by popular YouTube creators BapMokja and Haeppy from DIA TV, with correspondents Linda Dong and Hannah Jun. See below for planned live programming highlights*.

 

Once the festival ends, KCON.TV will continue to offer exclusive on demand content and community features to fans who don't want to wait until the next KCON to immerse themselves in Hallyu. This includes exclusive series Ranting Monkey, starring Amber Liu from girl group f(x); M Countdown Backstage; award shows; and short form series focusing on Korean beauty, fashion, food, music and dance – all topics that will be trending at this year's KCON LA – as well as content filmed at the sold-out KCON 2016 NY that attracted 42,000 fans to the NY Metropolitan area last month. With 9,000 clips of library, 150 new clips will populate daily on KCON.TV.

 

Additionally, starting Friday, July 29 at 8 p.m. PDT/11 p.m. EDT (with new episodes repeating on Saturday, July 30 at 8:30 p.m. PDT and Sunday, July 31 at 9 p.m. PDT), KCON.TV will also be airing a block of original content on CJ E&M's Mnet America, the first and leading 24/7 English-language cable network for fans of Asian entertainment. These half-hour episodes will feature highlights from KCON.TV's coverage, and be hosted by blogger Krys Khloe. KCON.TV is also distributing select made-for-social content to YouTube (YouTube.com/MnetAmerica), Instagram (@KCONTV), Snapchat (KCONTV) and Twitter (@KCONTV). KCON.TV is produced by CJ E&M America and developed in partnership with the Iteration Group.
