Kpop convention on the way to Toronto

Fans of Korean pop music in Toronto have a big reason to celebrate -- the city's first-ever K-pop con is coming this spring. The fan-organized Toronto Kpop Con 2015, set to take over the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for one hectic day on May 2, has already picked up tons of early buzz thanks to a performance by boy band NU'EST.

While they're arguably the biggest draw, the fest will also feature panel talks (including one about the tribulations of being related to a K-pop star), two concerts, performances by a half-dozen dance crews, appearances by local personalities like Brian Seo and Shimmycocopuffsss, and a ton of booths and merch. Start practicing your synchronized dance moves, then head over to their Facebook page for more info.
