You can check the charts per weeks on Gaon’s websiteLove Scenario still holding the #1 position on the digital chart marks the fouth consecutive week of this achievement, which is not a common thing at all.

The idol groups who have stayed at #1 for four weeks in a row can be counted in one hand: miss A’s “Bad Girl Good Girl”, Twice’s “TT”, EXO’s “Ko Ko Bop” and the newest addition, iKON’s “Love Scenario”.

‘Love Scenario’ has also been at #1 on QQ Music K-pop chart, the biggest Chinese music chart, for four consecutive weeks.

As for the recently posted teaser for iKON’s new single, iKONICs are curious to know if the upcoming release will follow ‘Love Scenario’s steps in terms of being embraced by the general public.

In addition, iKON’s ‘Love Scenario’ broke a record by charting #1 on Melon for a total of 780 hours, surpassing the previous record by Ailee’s “I Will Go To You Like The First Snow” of 779 hours.

Let’s touch the sky, iKON!

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.

Bobby Impresses Listeners with his Sincerity on MBC Radio Star + Eng Subs link

iKON has been in and out of radio shows since the release of their new full album ‘Return’. This time it was Bobby’s turn, to guest on MBC Radio Star on Wednesday 21st, at 11:10PM KST.

Bobby talked about a variety of issues (while dodging some bullets, too) including the music he wishes to make, dating and his ideal type, and his current hobbies. He also sang part of the song ‘For You’ by ‘Yim Jaebeom’.

Bobby was warm, forthright, sincere and disarmingly honest even when questions asked were especially difficult. iKONICs felt pride for how well he handled himself and even non-fans remarked on his good attitude. You can read the reaction of a non-iKONIC on the thread below.

Bobby also trended #4 on Naver an hour after the show started.

But there is also another phenomenon going on with Love Scenario as it is slowly becoming evident that the song has captured the hearts of a demographic not listed on the Melon chart.

There is a growing number of babies, toddlers and little kids jamming to Love Scenario in South Korea.  iKON seems to have captured the hearts of the purest demographic out there.

Special thanks to @ikinghanbin for collecting all those videos of little kids, check out their thread it is chock full of little cuties singing and dancing to Love Scenario.

Enjoy this amazing compilation of  little kids appreciating Love Scenario.

iKON marks history by achieving Perfect All-Kill for ‘Love Scenario’

It’s been a long, tough road.

Even before the beginning, before iKON was even complete, our boys went through hardships that have been called awful and cruel; they went through years of exhausting training and struggles. They were condemned to wait for debut, for comebacks, for schedules, for their homeland.

But today, we can truly say it was all worth it. It is a fact that hard work and perseverance always pay off.
