Kcon 2018 Thailand is set to take place on September 29 and 30 at the IMPACT Arena, Exhibition and Convention Center in Bangkok. K-Pop boy bands Got7, Pentagon, Golden Child as well as rookie girl group (G)-I DLE are the first acts to perform at the Korean pop music and cultural convention. The next lineup pf K-pop stars is expected to be revealed soon.
