K-pop in Mexico seems like it wouldn't be a thing, but K-pop has a huge fan base in Mexico, and Latin America in general has had more K-pop concerts than in the United States. Mexico City has held many concerts of K-pop just this year alone, NCT-127 and Super Junior.

Additionally, Mexico City will host KAMP Fest this year at the Parque Bicentinario on August 19-20. The line-up for the fest includes 8TURN, EXO's BaekHyun, GOT7's Bambam, ChungHa, CRAVITY, HORI7ON, iKON, KARD, LAPILLUS, LIMELIGHT, MONSTA X, NMIXX, Red Velvet's SeulGi, Sik-K, TFN, and VIVIZ.

There is a huge K-pop following in Mexico and the KAMP Fest is one of the go-to events for K-poppers.

Many K-pop fans get together in parks to practice dancing to K-pop songs. In the Monumento a la Revolución, K-pop fans get together to dance since Mexico City holds K-pop dancing competitions in Friki Plaza.

Moreover, Mexico City also has K-pop dance academies where people can take classes to perfect their moves.

Mexico City also has multiple stores with K-pop merchandise and FrikiPlaza where they sell K-pop and anime merchandise as well as Korean and Japanese food.

FrikiPlaza has many stores where fans can spend hours exploring the different floors to immerse themselves in Mexican K-pop culture.

In Mexico City's Little Seoul people can go eat Korean food, buy Korean cosmetics, and visit Korean grocery stores.

As Korean entertainment has been rising in popularity, Mexicans make it part of their lives by listening and dancing to K-pop.
