iKON’s first radio broadcast for their ‘Return’ album promotions! This radio broadcast took place on February 1st, 2018.
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!
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.

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

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.
