Even while the show was still on Junhoe’s name started to trend on multiple search engines in S.Korea including Naver, Instiz, and Daum. 

He also began to trend on Twitter and then even in Japan!

His name eventually made it to no 1 on Naver, Daum, and KakaoTalk and iKONICs swiftly responded by sending the twitter hashtag #수고했어_준회야 to no 1 in Korea and making it a top trend in the US too! 

In this way iKON and iKONICs showcased their passionate relationship as a young but unstoppable team!

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.

Listeners were truly moved and impressed on Friday, Aug. 4th by a surprise live coverage of One Direction song “Half A Heart” by iKON members Kim Donghyuk and Kim Jinhwan!

The Cover Session occurred during the Weekly VApp Radio show of Kim Donghyuk where he normally plays soothing music and shares exchanges of the heart with fans that tune in.

On this day he was joined by the iKON mathyung Kim Jinhwan and their voices blended in perfect harmony for an impressive rendition of the popular western boy band’s song.

Though the vocals were highly praised by all, a key point of the performance was Kim Jinhwan’s live electric guitar accompaniment. Jinhwan is known to have been working for a while to become proficient with the electric guitar and this performance showed he’s already come a long way!

Kim Donghyuk and Kim Jinhwan, whose unit name among fans is “DongHwan,” have previously covered “Drunk” by Zayne in which Donghyuk played the piano accompaniment all to an enthusiastic response which inspired them to continue.

Fans responses for “Half A Heart” have also been full of delight:
