Highlights of the K-Culture convention will be two evening concerts by the star-studded line-up of 17 acts -- with Got7, one of the most favourite K-pop boy bands among Thai fans, and girl group Itzy as headliners on Sept 28. They will be joined by Boy Story, Everglow, Golden Child, Kim Jae Hwan, Nature, Oneus and The Boyz.
