Girls' Generation Headline KCON 2014: 6 Must-See Videos Before the Concert

This weekend marks the third annual KCON, America's largest K-pop festival. When it was created in 2012, the Los Angeles convention was a single-day hurrah of all things Korean pop culture with panels, workshops, artist meet-and-greets and a huge concert with multiple K-pop acts to end the day. Today, KCON has grown to two days of festivities with concerts each night. This year, the fest promises longer sets from each artist, which means more time needed to obsess over what songs we might potentially hear live. So. Many. Options. (!!!) 

Girls' Generation are headlining the second day of concerts, and to adequately prepare you for the girl group's sure-to-be-explosive setlist, we've compiled a list of six videos you'll need to see ahead of KCON. Get the songs stuck in your head, make you sure have the choreography down pat and end your festival on a K-pop high.

#1"I Got a Boy"

"I Got a Boy" was a massive success around the world, even winning Video of the Year at the very first YouTube Music Awards. Girls' Generation haven't performed in America since dropping the track in early 2013, so this is another one they'll definitely want to bring to the live stage for fans.

Get into the genre-defying jam above that just broke 100 million views on YouTube. The feat made GG the only K-pop group to have multiple vids break the 100 millie mark. Yeah, it's that good.
