2019 kicked off in the best of ways for iKON and iKONICs.
The first day of the Golden Disk Awards were held on January 5th at 5PM, where iKON’s mega hit-song, Love Scenario, won a Bonsang and later on was announced as the winner of the Digital Song of the Year Daesang.

After a very successful year, iKON won their first Song of the Year Daesang with the mega-hit song, Love Scenario, at the Melon Music Awards. Love Scenario also won the Melon Top 10 award, and B.I was awarded the well-deserved Songwriter Award.
iKON gave a very emotional and heartfelt acceptance speech after winning Song of The Year, you can watch it below:
On top of this amazing achievement, Kim Hanbin was also awarded for his composing and song-writing skills, winning the Songwriter Award.

iKON continues to write their own history with amazing music, achievements, humbleness, and immeasurable strength. Today both iKON and iKONICs get to celebrate each other, and everything that got us where we are now.
From the bottom of our hearts we thank iKON for all their efforts, the sleepless nights and the love we’ve received from them.
Congratulations to the boys for these well-deserved awards, and to iKONICs for all the hard work since day one.
iKON releasing farewell songs have became their formula for their #1s. The article stated that iKON released 3 consecutive hits: Love Scenario in ‘Spring’ their record breaking hit song (#1 for 40 days), ‘Killing Me’ in Summer which brought good results (#1 in charts and 24 countries #1 iTunes) and now, in Fall, they released Goodbye Road which was a success too (#1 in download charts and album charts, 28 countries #1 iTunes). By releasing these 3 consecutive hits, iKON solidified their brand as “Trust and Listen iKON”

iKON had a successful comeback yesterday with the release of the Goodbye Road MV and New Kids: The Final mini album at 6PM KST.
(Don’t forget to stream the MV! Our goal is 6M views in 24 hours.)
As for Korea, Goodbye Road debuted comfortably in top #21 of all major charts, raising quickly and steadily every hour until the charts froze at 1AM, achieving #4 on Naver and #1 on all other charts, getting incredibly close to scoring a Realtime All Kill.
Didn’t I say the other day there is no stopping Love Scenario?
Let me say it again: THERE IS NO STOPPING LOVE SCENARIO!
Love Scenario has achieved 100 000 000 Gaon streams in 19 weeks earning the Gaon Platinum Certification for streaming. With this Loves Scenario has surpassed Ailee’s record of 20 weeks for I Will Go To You Like The First Snow.
iKON is the first artist to receive Gaon Platinum Certification for streaming since its introduction!
Although it has been months since Love Scenario came out it still manages to rake achievement after achievement and the latest one is 18 weeks o Melon top 10!!!
This achievement is even more impressive when you consider that this is the longest an idol song has managed to stay on Melon top 10 in the last 10 years and it is the only song by a third generation group that has managed this feat.
