Are You Ready to Run Away with Bobby?

Cr: YG Entertainment

YG Entertainment released the posters for Kim Bobby’s 2nd title track, “Runaway” and it hit us right in the feels!

Two days ago YGE dropped the teaser posters for the 1st title track from Bobby’s 1st Solo Album, “Love and Fall.” At that time iKONICs and the Kpop community in general were taken by surprise by the teaser’s soft imagery and the title of the song, “I Love You.”

Today’s posters shows imagery of Bobby on a beach with ruffled hair and casual clothes, his face in sharp profile against a moody sky. They are probably some of the most aesthetically pleasing posters YGE has ever released in relation to iKON and iKONICs are thrilled!


Cr: YG Entertainment

Even more importantly, this second teaser along with the first one and the album name are further indications that we are going to be seeing a more personal and emotional side of Bobby, whose real name is Jiwon, in this album.

Before now Bobby has been strongly associated with his fierce and charismatic stage presence, incredible performance energy and high tension, hard hitting rap style. 

True Bobby fans, however, have always been aware that the rapper fondly known as a Bunny within the fandom is as squishy inside as his beloved Winnie the Pooh bear!

Kim Bobby Jiwon is actually a talented and incredibly versatile rapper as well as a vocalist with an addictive vocal color and a player of multiple instruments. Though he is known more for his fiercer raps, his more emotional bars have given us some of his most unforgettable work.

Below are some threads worth exploring to find out more about Bobby’s Rap:

iKON performed live today at Japan’s Annual prestigious A-Nation Festival, the Crown Jewel of J-Pop Summer Festivals, for the 2nd time in their less than 2 year career and iKONICs proved that Konfire (the ocean of the Konbat light stick) can burn as brightly as the sun!

The Concert took place at Japan’s Ajinomoto Stadium in Chofu, Tokyo, an almost 50,000 capacity venue and was well attended by happy festival fans.

Japanese iKONICs came in numbers – men, women, youth and children – and after buying out three stalls worth of merchandise they coloured the stadium fire red with a passion that Yunhyeong would have been proud of!

iKON’s set came up at about 5pm and many non fans were shocked at the amount of support they recieved. It was still daylight but the stadium suddenly began to blaze with Konfire and the fan chants rose!

iKON put on an energetic set including in order:

Bling Bling

Rhythm Ta (Rock ver.)

My Type

WYD

Dumb & Dumber

B-Day

Despite two members literally flying in from overseas schedules, iKON performed as strongly as ever and entertained with their signature wild Ad-libs and infectious energy.

They were also able to communicate well with the audience in fluent Japanese during their Ments! It’s no wonder the boys even trended in Japan!

iKON’s Japan schedule will kick off officially in September with the start of their New Kids Japan Tour that includes 22 Concerts.

Meanwhile, their Mini Album continues to do very well, topping charts like Tower Records, Oricon and Billboard and proving iKON’s unrelenting popularity in Japan.

YOYO’S BACK!

iKONICs rejoice as previews from Fansite Masters confirmed the good news that Song Yunhyeong has safely returned to us from the wilds of Fiji, New Zealand!

Yunhyeong left for New Zealand 5 days ago on August 21st to embark on his debut solo Variety appearance as part of the cast of SBS’ Law of the Jungle!

His activities have been a mystery since then but as iKON (minus Bobby who flew in from LA) who are scheduled to perform at A Nation today, left South Korea for Japan without him yesterday, fans wondered if they would have to perform without their high note specialist.

Fans were profoundly relieved when he finally showed up at Hanada Airport looking a little tired and slimmer but safe and sound!

(Cr: Brilliant Moment)

We do hope he will get a chance to rest a little before climbing A Nation’s famous stage later today.

Thank you to the hardworking and passionate Fansite Masters that captured his return for us.

Welcome Back, Yoyo!

In the midst of rising excitement over yet another iKON member’s variety solo debut, iKONICs were able to witness a small but surprising and positive event when a Senior Fashion Editor at Cosmopolitan liked a post on twitter that featured images of YG rapper Jung Jaewon aka “One” and our very own Leader/Rapper/Songwriter Kim Hanbin!

It all begin with the announcement by Osen this morning of the “Rapper Special” to be broadcast on the On Style Network Beauty show, “Get it Beauty” on August 16th, 9:30pm KST.

iKONICs were extremely excited to find out that Kim Hanbin was one of the rappers chosen to feature on the show especially because it will be his first solo variety appearance!

(translations: @KONNECTED_ @ALNIKON)

There was further excitement over Jung Jaewon’s featuring as well because of the recently revealed cute friendship between the rapper known as One and Kim Hanbin.

iKONICs, who have taken to referring to the relationship as “OneBin”, have been watching over their friendship closely since Jaewon mentioned and included Hanbin on one of his first promotional radio broadcasts.  It was revealed then, to the delight of fans,  that Hanbin addresses Jaewon without honorifics but simply and affectionately as, “Jaewonnie.”

In the midst of all the excitement, twitter user, @BBkings5 made a post about hoping to see interactions between the two friendly rappers using images where they appear to be twinning in cute head dresses from fans.
