This weekend, Hallyu fans in the United States -- especially those who love their K-pop -- will finally get the chance to experience Korean content at its purest and finest through KCON 2017 NY. It will truly be a weekend to remember as K-pop acts like Twice, CNBlue, UP10TION, KNK, NCT 127, and Zion.T perform live.

There is, of course, only one major flaw for KCON 2017 NY and that is its attendance reach is limited.

The northeast U.S. probably has one half of the majority of K-pop fans in the country with the other half of the majority living in the southwest, but both the northeast and KCON 2017 LA may be too far and too expensive a travel for other K-pop fans living in the country, especially in the central and southeast parts.

At this time, K-pop may not be popular enough in the U.S. for KCON to justify a third venue in the aforementioned areas of the country. Fortunately, they are doing the next best thing by making KCON 2017 NY readily available to everyone via live stream on KCON.TV.

KCON.TV will live stream three major parts of the New York Leg of the world's largest Korean culture convention in the United States

The news of KCON.TV live streaming KCON 2017 NY was announced just a couple of days ago on June 21, 2017. just days before the actual event. The leading short form online video platform will livestream the red carpet and concerts.

They will also live stream Amazon's Mobile Masters Invitational.

This is a new tournament series featuring top competitors in mobile gaming available on the Amazon Appstore. The games featured include Summoners War, Vainglory, and Hearthstone. Competitions will take place over the course of two days too just like the concerts.

Hallyu fans who are interested in the live stream will be able to access it on both KCON.TV website or through their official app.

Will the stream be available after it is over?

As of the publication of this article, the live stream will be on KCON.TV and its official app.

Ergo, some readers who just learned about the live stream now have missed some of the performances. The question that needs to be brought up is if the live stream will be re-uploaded on KCON.TV or available elsewhere.

If history were to repeat itself, the live stream will be re-uploaded on DramaFever. The video-on-demand streaming site has become number one in delivering Korean content to the Americas thanks through its connection with Mnet and KCON.

Right now, K-pop fans can watch the 2015 and 2016 KCON concerts as well as the 2015 and 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) on the site.

KCON 2017 NY takes place at the Prudential Center over the course of this weekend, June 23 and 24. As for KCON 2017 LA, it will take place next month on August 18 through 20.
