iKON marks history by achieving Perfect All-Kill for ‘Love Scenario’

It’s been a long, tough road.

Even before the beginning, before iKON was even complete, our boys went through hardships that have been called awful and cruel; they went through years of exhausting training and struggles. They were condemned to wait for debut, for comebacks, for schedules, for their homeland.

But today, we can truly say it was all worth it. It is a fact that hard work and perseverance always pay off.

iKON TV ends with a gift fan song

 

Yesterday,  iKON TV season 1 (forgive the optimistic writer I am just putting this out there) ended with ep. 11 directed by iKON’s June.

To commemorate the ending of iKON TV members went on a bonding trip all dressed as June doing things June could never do due to his fear of water and high places,  like race on water obstacles, ride on a super fast water float and even bungee jump. In the end June got to experience things through his fellow members and we got supremely entertained once again.

But in the end, what brought tears to eyes of a many iKONICs was not the ending of iKON TV but a beautiful gift of a fan song “Give it to you” composed by Hanbin and sang by all 7 members.

Here is the fan song subbed by KiST members so you can fully enjoy the touching, heartfelt lyrics.

 

Thank you iKON for giving us 11 Saturdays of fun and laughter!

Another achievement to be added to a library of Love Scenario achievements.

On June 1 Love Scenario MV  achieved 100 million YouTube views making it iKON’s first MV to get 100 million views.

This achievement is even more impressive when you consider that only 6 Korean boy groups have MVs with over 100 million views and iKON is the youngest and fastest among them to achieve this milestone.

Just day before iKON has released a Japanese version of Love Scenario topping real-time digital charts in Japan.

There is no stopping Love Scenario!

iKON TV or what happens when iKON gets to do whatever they want

 

iKON has released a hilarious teaser for their long anticipated iKON TV.

 

iKON TV is a 10 episode reality show self-produced by iKON members themselves with first episode airing on 21 of April at 10 PM KST on Naver V Live and YouTube and on 22 of April at 12.20 AM KST on JTBC.

No screenplay, no script, self- produced iKON TV, first episode 21 April 10PM

The show will be unique as there is no script and iKON were given free creative rain to do whatever they wish, with each member participating in planning, filming or editing of episodes. We are getting pure, unadulterated iKON.

Teaser, a tongue-in-cheek homage to Korean gangster movies, was completely conceptualized by iKON members and filmed without the script ( to Donghyuk’s consternation) featuring iKON members looking like they just stepped of the pages of a gangster manhwa, a comedic one. It announces the first episode directed by iKON with special guests, comedienne group Celeb Five, that clashes with iKON as the rival gang in the hilarious teaser.

Celeb Five is a “girl group” consisting of well known comediennes  Song Eun Yi, Shin Bong Sun, Kim Young Hee, Kim Shin Young, and Ahn Young Mi. Kim Hanbin is their self proclaimed biggest fan.

Anticipation for iKON TV is very high and reactions to the teaser are overwhelmingly positive. iKONICs have been waiting for this for so long and they couldn’t be happier.

 

Now iKONICS it is time to do what we do best and promote the hell out of iKON TV. Here are some edits done by dedicated fans that can help you promote iKON on your social media.

The Meaning of #Puzutgan1stWin

On the 29th March, 2018, Korean and International iKONICs mysteriously trended the hashtag #Puzutgan1stWin leaving non-fans and even many fans that were not in the know a little baffled. Here is the amusing story behind it.

On that date iKON had an unusual schedule. As a part of the events being shot for their first and highly anticipated solo reality show, iKONTV, they appeared on Korea’s popular Lotte Home Shopping Network!

There, in a “Mukbang” style broadcast the boys took on the challenge of selling extremely luxurious and high end Beef and Pork from YG’s 3Geori Butchers.The boys displayed their beagle charms, a little aegyo and ate very well indeed!

Their charm must have carried over well because before the show was over the expensive meat was all SOLD OUT!

The boys did a victory dance to celebrate and for a while it was a little chaotic!

iKONICs were reminded once again of one of the very many things we love about our boys.

Shortly after the hashtag #Puzutgan1stWin started floating around and it’s unclear wether it started with Korean or International iKONICs but soon the fandom was united in celebrating the meat sell out with this hashtag. Why?

Apparently “Puzutgan” is the romanisation of the Hangul name for 3Geori Butchers. iKONICs just decided to celebrate selling out the meat like a music show win!

A fun loving group and their fun loving fandom indeed! Here is Top Star News’ coverage of the event.

iKON has been shooting events over the last couple of days in connection with iKONTV with a speculated theme of “Part Timers”. So far they have appeared on the streets of Seoul, Campus Grounds, Aori Ramen and a Day Care Centre.

Let’s keep looking forward to iKONTV which is sure to be very interesting!
