iKON has released a hilarious teaser for their long anticipated iKON TV.
iKON TV is a 10 episode reality show self-produced by iKON members themselves with first episode airing on 21 of April at 10 PM KST on Naver V Live and YouTube and on 22 of April at 12.20 AM KST on JTBC.
The show will be unique as there is no script and iKON were given free creative rain to do whatever they wish, with each member participating in planning, filming or editing of episodes. We are getting pure, unadulterated iKON.
Teaser, a tongue-in-cheek homage to Korean gangster movies, was completely conceptualized by iKON members and filmed without the script ( to Donghyuk’s consternation) featuring iKON members looking like they just stepped of the pages of a gangster manhwa, a comedic one. It announces the first episode directed by iKON with special guests, comedienne group Celeb Five, that clashes with iKON as the rival gang in the hilarious teaser.
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.
Today, after the Music Core performance iKONICS were treated to a surprise to beat all surprises.
All iKON members opened public Instagram accounts at the same time and proceeded to bomb the Instagram with photos, videos and comments trying very hard to make up for the last two years of radio silence.
iKONICS used to scarce and slow updates were completely shocked and overwhelmed with the sudden influx of content.
Not even a day after opening their accounts all the members have over 200 000 followers.
Here are all of their accounts so you can follow them if you haven’t already but be warned June will blow up your notifications.
iKON had their first performance of their title track Love Scenario on MBC Music Core. Boys were styled wearing black suits with silver and red accents that reflected their individuality. They sounded and looked smooth.
This was their first performance this comeback and the very next day they will be performing on SBS Inkigayo. This come back performance will consist of Love Scenario and Beautiful, a B side from the album that Donghyuk mentioned specially for its choreography.
Don’t miss their next performance on Inkigayo that airs on 28 January at 12.10 PM KST (streaming link) and don’t forget to watch today’s performance on YouTube and Naver.
