K-pop fans are known for their enthusiasm. And Houston's crop are among the most loyal.

They've sold out shows from various K-pop acts. (We're still bitter that BTS is skipping Houston.) A pair of local stores, called Eve Pink, sell K-pop music and memorabilia. And Barbarella hosts monthly K-pop nights.

Houston fans get another kick of K-pop this weekend when Baikal headlines Korean Festival Houston. The group performs at 6:30 p.m. at Discovery Green in downtown Houston.

Baikal is a relatively new act who made its debut in Sept. 2017 with the song "Hiccup."

There are seven members: HoChan, Dokka, K-Bean, Day, Dae Woong, Yeon Woo and Noah. And they're already in Houston, according to their social media.

The most popular members seems to be HoChan, a former comedian who currently boasts more than 15,000 Instagram followers.

The group's name is said to come from one of the oldest lakes in Russia.

They refer to their fans as "swans."

A new song, "See the Star," was released last month.

Admission to Saturday's KFest is free.
