BREAKING: iKON Teases Brand New Single to be Released on March 5th

We got hints, even promises, but iKONICs are used to empty words. Today we got proven wrong in the best of ways.

At 10.30AM KST, Yang Hyun Suk posted on his personal Instagram a teaser picture of iKON’s upcoming release.

The song is a hidden title track and will be an extension of the current promotions of iKON’s second full album, ‘Return’- whose title track, ‘Love Scenario’, has topped charts, broken records and charmed the general public for over a month.

The iKON members have teased new content numerous times.

Even Yang Hyun Suk himself had promised iKONICs a special surprise on his Instagram.

However, iKONICs are used to waiting -without mentioning being busy keeping up with iKON’s current success and still playing their part as fans in the latest comeback for over a month now.

This announcement came as a shock and was completely unexpected, but iKONICS also have experience with seizing opportunities when they appear and this time won’t be any different.

iKON has been in and out of radio shows since the release of their new full album ‘Return’. This time it was Bobby’s turn, to guest on MBC Radio Star on Wednesday 21st, at 11:10PM KST.

Bobby talked about a variety of issues (while dodging some bullets, too) including the music he wishes to make, dating and his ideal type, and his current hobbies. He also sang part of the song ‘For You’ by ‘Yim Jaebeom’.

Bobby was warm, forthright, sincere and disarmingly honest even when questions asked were especially difficult. iKONICs felt pride for how well he handled himself and even non-fans remarked on his good attitude. You can read the reaction of a non-iKONIC on the thread below.

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.

Youtube Streaming Guideline

2018-02-03 17_10_06-iKON - ‘사랑을 했다(LOVE SCENARIO)_ M_V - YouTube

Youtube streaming has always been a mystery and a hard task to accomplish, especially with Youtube getting more and more strict with the rules and improving their bots every day for more accurate and realistic statistics.

But hey, we can be smarter than the bots (for now, at least) and here’s how:

– Use all your Youtube accounts to watch, like, upvote comments, comment, reply to other comments, share, etc. Do this with the dance practices and teasers too.

– Like top comments AND new comments.

Make your own streaming playlist (yes, with each of your accounts), name it something realistic, and add multiple different videos (one Love Scenario video once after each other video). Play it in it’s entirety for around two or three hours, while logged in and on shuffle.

– Log out, stream another playlist for around three to four hours.

– If you’re using an incognito window, choose a playlist, and play it for around three or four hours.

– After all of this, change your IP address using a VPN like Hola (have in mind Hola DOES NOT work on incognito), rinse and repeat.

Some misconceptions:

  • Speed and quality of the video don’t affect your views.
  • The video can be at any volume, as long as you DON’T mute it:
    • What you can do, however, is mute the tab
      2018-02-01 21_57_17-
    • Or mute your browser from the volume mixer
      2018-02-01 21_58_05-Mezclador de volumen - Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)
  • Skipping ads or using AdBlock while you stream doesn’t affect views.
  • Pausing, forwarding, buffering or auto quality changes don’t affect views.

The ‘overall’ trick is to make the Youtube algorithm think you’re watching multiples videos, and not trying to give one single video a lot of views.

Total views of a video reflect the number of times a video has been watched, not how many people have watched it, which is why you can give a video multiple views using the same account if you know how to trick the Youtube bot.

This guide is not 100% foolproof, bots are hard to trick and they’re very, very smart, but hopefully this will help us make our streaming as accurate and profitable as possible.

If anyone has any corrections or suggestions, please let us know and we’ll update this post accordingly. Happy streaming!
