iKON Achieves 10th Music Show Win and M Countdown Triple Crown!

Can we say Legendary yet? There doesn’t seem to be a better word to describe how iKON continues to rack up achievements more than 40 days in to promoting their media labelled Mega-Hit Single, Love Scenario!

Today they picked up their 10th Music Show Win which also happened to nab them a Triple Crown achievement – their second in this promo cycle having already gained one via Inkigayo.

The Achievement is made more remarkable by the fact that iKON never once promoted on M Countdown but still managed to snatch a Triple Crown!

In fact despite only attending two shows (SBS Inkigayo and MBC Music Core) Love Scenario has taken wins from all 5 main music shows in a Music Show Perfect All Kill if you will.

Fans and INetizens have been full of praise!

iKON is expected to perform Love Scenario again on Music Core this Saturday and begin performing the addictive Fan Gift Single, Rubber Band starting Sunday on Inkigayo.

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!

BREAKING: iKON Teases Brand New Single to be Released on March 5th

We got hints, even promises, but iKONICs are used to empty words. Today we got proven wrong in the best of ways.

At 10.30AM KST, Yang Hyun Suk posted on his personal Instagram a teaser picture of iKON’s upcoming release.

The song is a hidden title track and will be an extension of the current promotions of iKON’s second full album, ‘Return’- whose title track, ‘Love Scenario’, has topped charts, broken records and charmed the general public for over a month.

The iKON members have teased new content numerous times.

Even Yang Hyun Suk himself had promised iKONICs a special surprise on his Instagram.

However, iKONICs are used to waiting -without mentioning being busy keeping up with iKON’s current success and still playing their part as fans in the latest comeback for over a month now.

This announcement came as a shock and was completely unexpected, but iKONICS also have experience with seizing opportunities when they appear and this time won’t be any different.

As always, check out this Naver article and do the usual- react, upvote comments, recommend and comment something yourself, you can use this document to find common korean phrases to use.

Let’s do our best for iKON and enjoy the music and more of our best boys above anything else!

Love Scenario – iKON’s new title track revealed at last!

DTZkDhZUQAAb9PQ

Today, YGE at last revealed a title track for iKON’s 2nd Full Album Return to the joy and excitement of iKONICs all over the world.

Love Scenario is said to be a medium tempo emotional song with precise choreography that members practiced deep into the night to perfect.

Lyrics are by B.I,  Bobby and Motmal (a Korean poet) and composed by B.I, Millenium and 승 (a mysterious contributor).

Anticipation was already plenty but it is now dizzyingly high thanks to the information revealed – and why?

1. Ballad/MidTempo: if you are a fan of iKON you know how since Welcome Back the boys have continued to deliver on the slow tracks in multiple languages be it original tracks or Remixes!

Just Go

You and the Rain

Perfect Acapella

2. Choreography: iKON has never and probably will never fail on choreography wether it’s fast or slow, complex or simple, precise or adhoc! Plus have you seen them dance to slow songs??

Rocket

Apology

Peng You

3. New Blood: With Millenium joining DoubleB at the composing helm we are truly getting a taste of YG’s young blood composers and a fresh sound from the company! Also there are contributions from a Poet in the lyrics and the mysterious 승

4. iKON: Seriously, it’s iKON!

iKON is scheduled to come back on January 25 and we are eagerly waiting for the full track list as well as schedule announcements for the comeback activities.

Hanbin surprises with a feature in Yawa’s ‘Her’

Although iKON has been on a musical hiatus for a while, it seems like our leader has been working on a couple of side projects.  Earlier in the day, rapper Yawa posted a picture of himself in a place resembling Hanbin’s veranda.

( cr.: yawa_upload on instagram)

Later on, speculations were made that Hanbin featured in his song called ‘Her.’ Although the song has been posted little over a month ago, the rumors only started surfacing after the news of the two being friends. The confirmation itself comes from the fact that you can hear his unmistakable voice here below, starting from 2:27.

What is even more awesome is that Yawa provides a direct download to the song. iKONICs, let’s show a bit of support, shall we?

Give love to Bobby’s Beautiful MVs

Along with the phenomenal solo album, Love and Fall, yesterday Kim Bobby recently dropped two beautiful MVs for his title tracks I love you and Runaway.

I love you is deceptively cheerful song with a breezy, summery MV although it sings about the end of love.

Filmed in L.A, the MV is bursting with color and Bobby charms irresistibly with boyfriend cuteness.

There is also some serious rapping going on where Bobby showcases his different flows, accompanied by images of Bobby bopping and dancing before camera, displaying his natural movement and charisma.

I love you  – lyrics (translation credit Genius.com)

 We shared a life that wasn’t short
Our hearts matured
Rather than lovers, we were like family
Now whatever we do, feels like we already did it

Now our answers have become short
Feeling the difference in the weight of our hearts
Our silence forecasts the end
On our lukewarm night

You had high expectations
And I was really tired
Would we be different
If we understood each other a little more?

When you have to try in love
That already means it’s not love
With love without the butterflies
Only attachment remains

I love you
Still (girl)
I love you
I’m still in love with you girl
I’m still in love with you
(Yeh ye ye ye)

We lived our own lives
And on our way to each other
We already ran out of breath
Even though we missed each other
When we see each other, we’re busy grinding our teeth
You flip over your phone and you’re getting a call
Who is it? Why aren’t you picking up?
Then you say it’s nobody and just like that
Another secret forms

Worries seem like doubt
What if’s become reality, we’re both obsessing
No strength to talk out the misunderstandings
Just saying sorry
Before we noticed, we slowly grew apart
Because of that, we need to shout at each other now
In order for each other to hear
God girl, what do we do?

When you have to try in love
That already means it’s not love
With love without the butterflies
Only attachment remains

I love you
Still (girl)
I love you
I’m still in love with you girl
I’m still in love with you
(Yeh ye ye ye)

We still have a little bit of attachment
For each other so
I just wanna leave it like this
Beautifully

If this heart break is foolish
I’ll endure it for love
Because you used to only know me
Because I used to only know you

When you have to try in love
That already means it’s not love
With love without the butterflies
Only attachment remains

I love you
Good bye my love good bye
Good bye my love good bye
Good bye my love good bye
Good bye good bye

Good bye my love good bye
Good bye my love good bye
Good bye my love good bye
Good bye good bye

The second MV for the song Runaway was filmed a year ago and shows a more intimate story.

A more subdued, darker MV, it packs a strong emotional punch much like the song itself and the music style is reminiscent of old school hiphop .

Runaway is a song  about loosing yourself when burdened by responsibilities and life and finding balance between growing up and compromising and maintaining that childhood dream, of finding your new grown up self.

Runaway – lyrics (translation credit – Genius.com)

I wanna runaway
I wanna runaway
I wanna runaway

I’m tired of everything now
So I get mad at the smallest things
I’m on my way home alone and it’s noisy
But it’s only laughter that has nothing to do with me
So I keep my head low

I ran crazily, not knowing I became an adult
Trying to pretend I live without worries so my mom won’t get worried
When I get home, I wash up, turn off the lights and lay down
But now reality is heavier than dreams
So I can’t sleep, so I sing

In the mirror
It’s not the me I used to know
I want to chase after my dreams
But responsibility weighs down on my shoulders

If you see my swaying
Please take me away, far away
I wanna runaway
Yay ye yay ye

To a place where no one knows me
To a place where no one looks for me
Raise me up
I just can’t go on, take me away
I wanna runaway

I have a habit of thinking mistakes are failures
I don’t wanna fail so I keep stopping my efforts
Cuz I don’t wanna get hurt, I avoid new encounters
It’s better to cry alone, no need to be cautious

I lay on my bed but it doesn’t feel like home
I just wanna go far away
Even if the sun rises tomorrow, even if there’s hope
The words “good morning”
Mean nothing to me, so I sing

In the mirror
It’s not the me I used to know
I want to chase after my dreams
But responsibility weighs down on my shoulders

If you see my swaying
Please take me away, far away
I wanna runaway
Yay ye yay ye

To a place where no one knows me
To a place where no one looks for me
Raise me up
I just can’t go on, take me away
I wanna runaway

Runaway
Oh nanana

My eyes in the mirror
My feet that broke down
The man in the mirror
Keeps looking at me, strangely

It’ll be alright
At the end of this wandering
The me that I will find
Is waiting Yeh ye
Yeh ye ye

I’ve lost my way
I can’t go on, I’m too tired
Please take me away
It’s hard to breathe
Yeh ye

I’ve lost my way
Please hold my hand
I don’t know why I’m here
I wanna runaway
I wanna runaway

To a place where no one knows me
To a place where no one looks for me
Raise me up
I just can’t go on, take me away
I wanna runaway

Both MVs are finally available on youtube for viewing after being re-uploaded several times and in the process loosing almost 1 000 000 views combined.

We know this incident discouraged the fandom but we need to do our best for Bobby and his amazing work.

Bobby didn’t give up, he kept trying until he got his music to us. We should not give up either and we should double our effort to stream and make up for the lost views. So let’s stream and promote Bobby’s MV’s on your social media.

Bobby Brings the Boyfriend Feels On I Love You Teaser

Screencap Cr: Soki’s Mom

It’s D1 to LOVE AND FALL Album debut and YG has dropped the final MV Teaser in which Bobby tells us “I Love You” while annihilating us with premium Boyfriend visuals!

You would think we would be tired by now of speaking on how adorable, fluffy, cute and gorgeous Kim Bobby has been in these teasers leading up to his album release or how ear-wormy the track excerpts are – but NOPE!

If you ever wanted to imagine what a date with iKON’s Bobby as a boyfriend would be like, this would probably be the MV for you!

Screencap Cr: Soki’s Mom

It’s such a refreshing switch to see a side of Bobby we’ve only ever caught behind the scenes suddenly taking the spot light that we cannot quite get over it. 

Soft Bobby the fluffy bunny with deep and earnest lyrics but still riding that beat masterfully – it’s a Kim Jiwon fans never knew if they would be lucky enough to see.

AND WE LOVE THAT HE’S SINGING! We’ve always loved his husky tones that complimented tracks like “Airplane” and “Just Go” and to have an album from champion rapper Bobby where he’s mostly singing is a GIFT!

So back to the Teaser: for the title track “I Love You” we see Bobby playing alone under the deep blue sky of a California beach, bouncing on beds, diving in a backyard pool and laying back on the hood of a pretty, blue Mustang all to a trendy tropical house beat.

The sound is light and even playful. His smile and glances are warm and intimate and the vibe is very chill. 
It’s surprising when you find out that the song is really a sad one about the end of a long term romance.

iKONICs are familiar with this kind of twist that iKON members seem fond of from songs like “Love Me” and “Welcome Back” and are strongly anticipating the full song and lyrics that will finally reveal the story of “I Love You”

Meanwhile the live countdown to Bobby’s album drop begins tomorrow at 4pm KST on VApp! 

Thank you to all the many fan sites and platforms who were able on such short notice to pull together various promotional Projects, Guides for iKONICs and Support! 

Let’s all do our best and support Bobby’s hard work as much as we can!
