iKON members win big at MMA2018: SOTY and Songwriter Award

After a very successful year, iKON won their first Song of the Year Daesang with the mega-hit song, Love Scenario, at the Melon Music Awards. Love Scenario also won the Melon Top 10 award, and B.I was awarded the well-deserved Songwriter Award.

iKON gave a very emotional and heartfelt acceptance speech after winning Song of The Year, you can watch it below:

On top of this amazing achievement, Kim Hanbin was also awarded for his composing and song-writing skills, winning the Songwriter Award.

Watch iKON receiving the Melon Top 10 award:

iKON continues to write their own history with amazing music, achievements, humbleness, and immeasurable strength. Today both iKON and iKONICs get to celebrate each other, and everything that got us where we are now.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank iKON for all their efforts, the sleepless nights and the love we’ve received from them.

Congratulations to the boys for these well-deserved awards, and to iKONICs for all the hard work since day one.

iKON fan art – or in this case just ART

Hello our lovely subscribers and readers! We are back to doing interviews with the talented and creative members of our fandom, and we have a real treat for you.  An amazing fanartist @milkyopi whose work looks like it should live in prestigious art galleries and not just our browsers. I also have to thank our own @icelycheetea  for making this interview possible.

How did you become an iKONIC?

Well, I knew them since their debut basically when I didn’t even know what kpop was. Then when they had a comeback with Bling Bling I started to listen to them more and I also first stanned Bobby when he released his solo album. When Return was released I said “that’s it, you need to stan them” and here I am.

A very good advice you gave yourself there. Now I am curious, what is your favorite iKON song or a moment?

At this point I don’t think I have a favorite song or a moment from them if I’m being honest. But if I have to mention one, than the first moment that comes to my mind would be when they won SOTY at MMA last year.

Oh, a grand moment for our fandom for sure. Now you are exceptional artist, how exactly did you become an iKON fanartist?

I don’t really know, when I first joined the fandom all I wanted to do was draw them and it’s weird because I never really enjoyed doing fanart before them.

Is art something you do just as a hobby or are you a professional artist? 

Started as a hobby and now it’s like in between but I want to become a fully professional artist in the future!

Well, looking at your work I believe that you will achieve that dream for sure. What inspires your fanart?

Music/videos, photoshoots, movies.

Is there a particular member, ship or a theme you love to draw?

Favorite members to draw would probably be Hanbin, Donghyuk and Jinhwan. My favorite ships are Jundong and Bobdong, but haven’t draw them yet.. And for themes I totally looove dark/badass/royalty/gangsta themes.

Oooooohhh, I love those themes too and I always felt iKON fits them really well. Now, I am sure that the more technical minded and artistic among us wish to know what is your favorite technique/medium to work in?

Digital!

You get a lot of reaction and feed back for your work from other fans. Was there anything someone said that stayed with you as special?

Every sweet encouraging message stays with me, I even took screenshots and have a folder full of them! Haha

Do you hear this guys? Do not be stingy in praising our fanartists!! I think everyone loves fanart and fanartist, I never saw anything negative ever said under a fanart post. Is my impression right? 

I didn’t got so many negative ones since i’m a pretty small artist but sadly there is, the most common one might be “it looks like {insert another person}”

Everyone’s a critic 🙄. Is there any particular illustration or comic you drew that is special to you and that you would like to share with us? Tell us why is it special?

All of my drawings are really special to me but I have two that are more important, my ‘goodbye road’ ot7 painting because it was the first time I make such a big piece and it’s them so that makes it instantly special. And the second one would be my ‘ocean eyes’ portrait of Donghyuk inspired by the song ‘ocean eyes’ by Billie Eilish. Some parts of the lyrics reminds me of him, like “Can’t stop staring at those ocean eyes” and “I’ve never fallen from quite this high, falling into your ocean eyes”. For me Donghyuk’s eyes are deep, i lose myself in his eyes every time I see him. I love all of the iKON members as if they were my friends my entire life, I’ve never felt this way for an idol before and with Dong as the bias it is even more special because all of a sudden he stole my heart so it really fits him.

Was your art ever used without your permission or plagiarized? How do you prevent things like that from happening.

Sadly yeah I’ve seen people editing it into videos, using it for freebies, some using my work as profile pics and they didn’t credit or didn’t even retweeted my own post! You can’t really prevent that, people don’t care about watermarks or the time you took into that drawing.

That is  a shame. We must respect artists’ work and credit at all times. Your art has a chance to reach iKON members or people close to them, thus giving you the satisfaction of reaching your idol in a way most of fans can only dream off. How does that make you feel?

Ohh I always think about this, even tho i never got a real response from them knowing that they might have seen at least one of my drawings makes me the happiest person in the world.

Have you ever thought of making fan merchandise using your art or publishing it? And if you did, tell us where we can get our hands on it.

Yes, all the time! In the meantime I have two online shops (Society6 and INPRNT) because I can’t produce and ship it myself but I would love to start my own shop this year ♡

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and art with us!

[Enter-talk] I Feel Bad For iKON After Seeing Them At ISAC

Idol star athletic championships is a very fun time and they played like highschool students, however during middle school and high-school they were practising … they couldn’t even practise for the athletic competition and couldn’t go on school trips before.. It’s iKON’s first time and i like it a lot… but i can’t help feeling a little bad for them.

Here’s a picture of iKON sitting in a circle and chatting among each other

– Ah.. i feel really sorry seeing this title…i feel sorry that they had to suffer so many hardships at such a young age, but then i saw that it’s about iKON being social with each other ㅋㅋㅋ ahh ㅠㅠ seeing our babies surrounded by each other ㅠㅠㅠ so cute…ㅠㅠㅠ

– Because iKON was practising during their school years, they now live a better life and earn more money than us ㅋㅋ

– They’ve been running around with ikonic at the concert for almost 4 hours… I was worried because I thought they would be tired, but they looked so excited and even won a silver medal ㅠㅠ

– iKON, your reality show with the Japanese students was really funny… it was the first time I had so much fun watching other artists ㅠㅠ

– It’s as if the brothers i go to the same school with are having a competition ㅋㅋㅋ

iKON releases stunning teaser for New Kids Repackage

With less than a week to go before it’s release, YGE posted a gorgeous concept teaser for the New Kids Repackage. In this delight of a video we get to appreciate iKON’s flawless visuals, with some very interesting music in the background. Watch it below:

YG Entertaiment has already clarified the repackage will not be promoted, but the title track, I’M OK, will have a music video to be released, along with the online album, on January 7th at 6PM KST. The offline release of the album will be on the next day.

Both iKONICs and iKON will be busy at the beginning of the new year, hopefully this means more good things to come in 2019! Let’s work hard for this new release and keep supporting iKON as best as we can. Check out our tutorials to find out how to help.

New Kids Repackage Album: “I’m Ok”

At last the details for iKON’s repackaged album have been released by YG Entertainment!

The repackage album comes with a new release title track called “I’m Ok” which is as the fandom expected since the boys have been obliging enough to spoil it for us weeks ago!

The “I’m Ok” announcement was accompanied by a moody and grainy black and white poster featuring the boys in suits posed around a black vintage car and giving off an extremely classy feel. The gorgeousness of the boys have iKONICs asking themselves if they are, in fact, indeed ok.

Interestingly, seeing that the image is located in a tunnel answered one of this year’s fandom mysteries concerning a missing MV with scenes from a tunnel based off posts made by Donghyuk in March. Actually the boys must have been pretty anxious to share this track and MV as they have been providing us with spoilers for months!
