iKON Takes Home Their 8th Music Show Win and a Triple Crown on Inkigayo

Today was the last stage for Love Scenario on Inkigayo. Love Scenario really knows how to make an exit as the last stage brought to iKON it’s 8th music show trophy and a triple crown.

Triple crown is achieved when a song has three consecutive wins on a music show. This is the second triple crown in iKONS career, previously they won it on M Countdown with Dumb and Dumber.

This is the last nomination on Inkigayo for Love Scenario as per SBS rules after getting the triple crown song is no longer eligible to be nominated.

While Love Scenario is still topping the charts in Korea, iKON will continue their promotions with the new digital single Rubber Band coming out at 6PM KST on Monday.

iKON Breaks Record for the Most Recorded Hours at No 1 on Melon!

iKONICs we hope you’re not suffering from achievement fatigue because Love Scenario has done it again!

Love Scenario has managed this feat by holding strong in the face of new releases. It has been one full month since the song’s release yet it’s still recording up to 700k unique listeners a day! With this kind of chart stamina it seems like the sky is the limit for iKON.

The Korean Media have labelled the song a “Mega Hit” and because of it have nick named iKON “Prince of the Charts” and the hilarious “iKONCRETE” (http://naver.me/xOGxGtZJ)

The iKONIC fandom call Love Scenario a Queen and we can see why.

Congratulations to iKON and iKONICs!

iKON successfully scores all-kill 10 days after releasing “Love Scenario”!

It is with great delight for us to announce that “Love Scenario” achieved the long awaited all-kill, on the 10th day of release. A song loved by not only fans, but general public as well showed longevity in charts despite strong competitors. iKONICs finally fulfilled their goal of greeting iKON with a chart full of #1’s, making it their 3rd all-kill after My Type and Apology. Congratulations to both our boys, but also our fans who’ve been continuously showing support since release. Let’s celebrate together!

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.

Love Scenario Brings Home its 1st Win on MCountdown!

With just 2.5 days of charting iKON’s come back title song, Love Scenario managed to grab the top spot today on MCountdown winning against Sunmi whose hit track Heroine was released on January 18th and has also won previously.

It has been two years since iKON won a triple crown at MCountdown with Dumb and Dumber from their debut album Welcome Back.

iKONICs who had managed their expectations due to a number of factors including iKON’s not being present to perform at the studio and therefore forfeiting broadcast points – were ecstatic.

Korea seems to be sharing their excitement as shortly after the hashtag #iKONLoveScenario1stWin trended no 1 in the country!

iKON continues to see unprecedented success with Love Scenario and their album Return and were today officially inducted into the Melon Hall of Fame for accumulating 1.5 million uniques listeners in less than a week.

Congratulations iKON on your 1st win! We hope it is not too greedy to hope for many, many more.

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.

Love Scenario first performance on Music Core

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.

iKON: RETURN Jinhwan and Junhwe teasers are out

We got a lot of new things in a very short span of time. Let’s get right into it.

Jinhwan

The first thing I noticed, apart from Jinhwan’s gorgeous face, was his voice. It’s an amazing voice, we know this, but there was something new about it. It sounded fuller, even smoother than usual and the falsetto was flawless. Hanbin truly wasn’t kidding when he said they all improved, and Junhwe was not the exception, keep scrolling to see Junhwe’s teasers!

As always, don’t forget to check out all the official videos, like, comment, share and stream.

Junhwe

Junhwe was stunning and truly refreshing. As a power vocal, he takes care of the impact, the shock along with his characteristic roughness, but this time his voice was mixed with something else. It had the deep tones he’s so known in iKON for, but instead of roughness he sounded silky smooth and relaxed. So far we’ve only seen two member teasers, but I’m pretty sure the change in his singing in this album will be the particularly interesting.
