[HINTS] Crush at #KCON16NY

Hey KCON-ers! Get up off your SOFAs because Crush will be returning to KCON this year but this time at #KCON16NY! It’ll be an OASIS on stage so JUST get ready because Crush has been preparing to make sure that WHATEVER YOU DO, this will be a KCON you DON’T FORGET!

Every week the KCON team challenges fans with deciphering hints about the new artists joining KCON via our Snapchat (@KCONUSA). This week, we came up with some fun clues to reveal our latest KCON New York addition: Crush. Check out the Snapchat clues and explanations we used for this week below:

HINT: The Sound of Paradise

Were you feeling the cool and relaxing sounds of the waves and nature? We used this clue to elude to one of Crush’s hit singles featuring Block B member ZICO (#KCON16LA performer) called OASIS.

♫ “O A~~ She’s mine~” ♫


HINT: Post-it Notes

Have a hard time remembering things? We showed you a lot of reminder post-it notes because of Crush’s song featuring Girls’ Generation and TTS member Taeyeon titled 잊어버리지마 (DON’T FORGET).

Post-it Reminders

*Frantically makes reminder for KCON ticket sale release date*


HINT: Powerpuff Girls Villains

Powerpuff Girl fans may have been able to name all the villains pictured, and one particular group should have stood out as a clue: The Amoeba Boys. We showed you the Amoeba Boys because Crush is a part of the label Amoeba Culture.

PowerPuff Girl Villains

With sweet songs like “Hug Me” and “Crush on You”, there’s no way Crush could be a villain


HINT: Friends on Couch

We showed you the opening to the show FRIENDS because Crush released a single in 2014 titled SOFA (소파) and in the scene, all the friends gather on the couch!

FUN FACT: There isn’t much of a difference between a couch and a sofa (the words are interchangeable), though some argue that sofa implies a more fancy seat while a couch is more casual


HINT: “Work” by Rihanna

We used this catchy tune by Rihanna (feat. Drake) because one of the two latest singles released by Crush is called “9 to 5” which is the typical schedule for full-time jobs.

Thank you for working ♫”9 to 5, 5 to 9, 7/11, 24/7″♫ for us Crush, we love the new music! ❤


That wraps up this week’s Snapchat hints for Crush! Were you able to piece together the clues? Are you excited to see Crush in New York this year?
