The KCON signature song ‘POPPIA’ symbolically captures the encounter between K-POP fans and artists, and was first unveiled at ‘KCON 2022 LA’ in August, and this is the third version.

Chief of the CJ ENM A&R team, James Lee, who is the general director of the signature song, said, “While maintaining the theme of the KCON signature song that connects LA, Saudi Arabia, and Japan, we considered both groups’ musical personalities and stage performances. In particular, TO1’s ‘Jang’ and INI’s ‘Shogo Tajima’ will also participate in the rap making in Korean and will deliver a meaningful stage.”
“POPPIA” is a compound word of K-POP and utopia, which is “a perfect society with the best possible state of human beings”, and an illusion composed of K-POP that exists somewhere between dream and reality. It is a song that contains a dream-like moment where the artist and fans meet. The lyrics are short in the long loneliness, but they double the atmosphere of the song by depicting the encounter between K-POP fans and artists at POPPIA, the place that shines the brightest.
