Let’s do our best for iKON!
Less than an hour ago 411Entertainment (Thai Concert Promoter) tweeted that both iKON concerts in Bangkok are now sold out. Thai iKONICS sure are eager to watch iKON live.
iKON will hold their concerts on 19th and 20th October in Thunder Dome venue in Bangkok as part of their 2018 Continue Tour.
Congrats to all who managed to snag a ticket and enjoy what is about to be an amazing experience!
With the strike of midnight in Korea iKON’s final D-day poster was released announcing that in less than 18 hours iKON will release their new mini album New Kids: the Final thus concluding the New Kids series.
It is more than fitting that iKON is concluding their New Kids series looking all grown up and mature.
This is iKON’s third comeback this year which is not unusual for kpop but it is more than unusual for YGE. After going through drought years this is the year of plenty for both iKON and iKONICS.
Let’s work hard and enjoy this comeback with iKON!!!
iKON is reminding us that there is only one day left until comeback!

Also do not forget to upvote D-1 teaser articles on Naver, you know how it is done, upvote, recommend and comment:
iKON released performance video teaser for their upcoming title song Goodbye Road.
The teaser drenched in muted colors focuses on Chanwoo, Donghyuk and Yunhyeong both visually and vocally giving us a taste of the song that leaves us craving for more. Dancing is softer as it befits the song and in signature style of song choreographers Kinjaz who have previously worked with iKON on Love Scenario and Killing Me.
As we are approaching the end of the best teasing period iKONICS have ever experienced it is up to us to do the most with it. To help iKON’s visibility in preparation for Monday release please like and watch the teaser on Naver.
If you do not have a Naver account it is easy to make one using Facebook or Line. Armed with your newly acquired Naver account you can now help iKON by liking and upvoting Naver articles on the performance video teaser.
This is something I never thought I would say at the start of a weekend but I cannot wait for Monday! Who is excited iKONICS?!!!
