As we announced earlier, iKON was scheduled to be interviewed for SBS News on the streets of Hongdae today. However, due to unexpected and massive crowds, the interview sadly had to be moved indoors.
It appears that the organizers may have underestimated iKON’S ability to attract a crowd and things seemed to have gotten out of control with iKON stuck in the midst of the sea of fans.
This was an unexpected situation as we can hear iKONICs apologizing to the boys for the crowd in the videos taken by fans at the scene and boys worrying for iKONICS’ safety.
We sincerely hope no one was hurt in the crowd and it is clear that a different approach is needed from now on when iKON ventures announced on the streets of Seoul.
