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.

No one would have expected this pleasant surprise! Jinhwan shows a breath taking duet with Akdong Musician’s Suhyun, a colleague he’s worked with before during Mix&Match era. The schedule wasn’t revealed to the fans, however the hints dropped when Jinhwan posted a short video on his Instagram Story, showing he was preparing for a secret schedule.

Shortly after, information came out that Jinhwan would assist her in performing “Last Goodbye,” known better for being an emotional ballad. The two showed professionalism and good chemistry on the beautifully decorated stage. Harmonized pretty well with stolen glances every now and then, Jinhwan, as well as Suhyun, surely captured our hearts with this unexpected collaboration!

5 reasons why you should watch iKON’s Weekly Idol

On 7th February, iKON’s long awaited episode of Weekly Idol finally aired. Showing not only the  warm relationship iKON members have with Doni & Coni, but they also proved how easily they adapt to a new environment to the point where it felt like it was a comedy act between friends.

With the help of iKONIC’s opinions, we’ve prepared the highlights of the broadcast that you certainly shouldn’t miss !

1. Yang Hyunsuk’s daughter chooses Donghyuk as her favorite member – for people who have watched WIN, this doesn’t come as a surprise; Yang Yoojin’s heart was stolen by our sunshine from minute one, when she whispered to her mother about the member she likes the most.  In YG’s congratulatory message on Donghyuk’s birthday, he wrote that he is his daughter’s first choice; according to Donghyuk’s confession on Weekly Idol, the two have met at a BIGBANG concert, where they shared a hug.  At the end of the segment, Donghyuk sent her a video message, saying “Let’s grab a meal soon. Thank you for liking me, and please talk to your dad so I can do a solo stage sometime”, which earned laughter from everyone in the studio.

 

2. The reason behind the mysterious disappearance of Bobby’s clothes –  the original topic started with Jinhwan and Junhoe always borrowing clothes from the piles of clothes left in Bobby’s room; however the story emerged comically once Bobby started narrating about his favorite hoodie that went missing. As he accept the idea that it was gone, a year later he sees Chanwoo’s mother wearing it. In Chanwoo’s defense, he thought the pile of clothes was to be thrown away, so he picked it from there, leading to Kony’s comment that Bobby’s room resembles a “thrift shop.”

 

3. During the segment in which iKONICS got to ask iKON to do things they asked for a performance of their song “Perfect” that was released solely in Japan while Bobby plays the guitar. Despite not knowing the chords Bobby manged  a faithful rendition of the song on the guitar with help of Hanbin’s beat boxing while vocals sang the song beautifully. Doni was so impressed with the song he asked YG to release it in Korea.

 

4. iKONICS also requested for Jinhwan’s height to be measured in mandarins. Jinhwan was a good sport and submitted himself to be measured and finally we have the answer to the question of how tall is Jinhwan? Answer is: 27 mandarins.

 

5. During the same segment they asked for Hanbin to do a cute rendition of a popular children’s song “Baby Shark”. Hanbin hates doing aegyo but he did it for iKONICS with hilarious reactions from everybody.

 

This entire episode of Weekly Idol was hilarious and well worth the watch regardless if you are a fan of iKON or not.

It’s Yunhyeong Day! To celebrate, let’s have a look at all the times our mood-making visual has made iKONICS hearts so warm that we thought we might run a fever. Cue the best of Song Yunhyeong!

 

1. The Accidental Comedian

As iKON have said before, Yunhyeong is unmistakeably the center of the group, which means he is also the center for a lot of teasing. The boys have often said his reactions are “too good” when they make fun of him, and it seems the second eldest is no stranger to iKON’s relentless jokes. From calling him a celebrity, imitating his song parts, teasing his bald spot even his lately infamous rap persona. iKON’s reign of torture is neverending. Thanks for being such a good sport, Yunhyeong!
