KCON fans can rejoice! CJ ENM announced that KCON:TACT Hi 5 will take place online from September 18 – 26, 2021. The virtual nine-day event will be filled with iconic and exclusive programs that have captured the hearts of global K-pop fans since its inception last year. In addition, the contactless virtual KCON:TACT will evolve into an online-for-offline platform, extending its exclusive content offline, further strengthening its position as the world’s largest K-culture festival.
Two confirmed special stages by contestants on Mnet’s popular reality competition show “Girls Planet 999” and “Street Woman Fighter” will meet global fans exclusively on KCON:TACT HI 5. First, the first set of survivors from “Girls Planet 999” will perform their hit song “O.O.O(Over&Over&Over)” for the first time on the stages of KCON:TACT HI 5.
Members of Mnet’s female dance crew reality survival show, “Street Woman Fighter,” will also perform a special stage choreographed just for KCON:TACT HI 5.
For fans in the U.S., KCON:TACT will be bringing back panels at workshops that will be available for viewing on the same YouTube channels where the live ‘KCON:TACT HIi 5’ concerts occur.
