The Surprise in Love Scenario’s Audience Demographics

Love Scenario has become a surprise hit, topping the charts for more then 20 days.

Everyone noted the consistently high number of Unique Listeners and high percentage of male listeners on Melon – both uncommon for an idol boy group.

But there is also another phenomenon going on with Love Scenario as it is slowly becoming evident that the song has captured the hearts of a demographic not listed on the Melon chart.

There is a growing number of babies, toddlers and little kids jamming to Love Scenario in South Korea.  iKON seems to have captured the hearts of the purest demographic out there.

Special thanks to @ikinghanbin for collecting all those videos of little kids, check out their thread it is chock full of little cuties singing and dancing to Love Scenario.

iKON recently surpassed 100 hourly Perfect All Kills after taking back the top spot from newly released hits on the Korean Charts in their 3rd week of charting. An unprecedented achievement!

iKON pulls massive crowd for SBS Street Interview

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.

iKON’s “Double B” Debut as Variety Show MCs

It was announced today that iKON’s rappers Kim Hanbin and Kim Bobby will be special MCs  on February 3, Music Core together with RED VELVET’s Yeri.

This is the first time since debut that any member of iKON will be a music show MC.

It seems that iKON’s first  venture into world of emcees had garnered a lot of interest.

Both iKON and RED VELVET have had successful comebacks this past weeks and are competing for no.1 place on various music charts. However, many of their fans have interpreted this competition as cute interaction and were hoping for groups to interact in real life as well and not only on charts. Music Core is making their wish a reality.

For the promotion of their new album, Return, iKON has promised to have many activities in Korea as compared to their usual promotion cycles. From recent announcements like these it seems they have every intention of keeping their promise.

Editorial: LOVE SCENARIO, iKONICS’ most awaited title track

 

Written by: Ezra

The music video dropped at exactly 6PM KST – with iKONICS feeling nervousness and excitement gushing through their veins. They have been waiting for this exact moment. Holding their breaths, iKONICS waited for the YouTube notification and once it was out, the music video opened automatically.

The rhythm and melody is very catchy – without reading any translation one can instantly think of cute and adorable lyrics but do not be fooled. LOVE SCENARIO was about a beautiful love story between lovers, a love that’s been mutual, a love that grew, and a love that ended like a theater play.

In the music video, glimpse of romance scenes and breakup scenes can be seen. It was a lovely song with warm lyrics that reminds you of the love that was and still is important to you. You’ll remember someone that left flowers in your heart –  symbolizing the love but making it painful and hard to breathe.
