Yang Hyun Suk posted on his Instagram account a screenshot from the current shooting of iKON’S new title track featuring soft and unbelievably handsome looking Hanbin. With caption: “iKON‘s best ever new song. B.I’s lyrics and composition”.
It seems we have new music to look forward to in January. Get ready iKONICS it’s showtime.
YG Entertainment released the posters for Kim Bobby’s 2nd title track, “Runaway” and it hit us right in the feels!
Two days ago YGE dropped the teaser posters for the 1st title track from Bobby’s 1st Solo Album, “Love and Fall.” At that time iKONICs and the Kpop community in general were taken by surprise by the teaser’s soft imagery and the title of the song, “I Love You.”
Today’s posters shows imagery of Bobby on a beach with ruffled hair and casual clothes, his face in sharp profile against a moody sky. They are probably some of the most aesthetically pleasing posters YGE has ever released in relation to iKON and iKONICs are thrilled!

Even more importantly, this second teaser along with the first one and the album name are further indications that we are going to be seeing a more personal and emotional side of Bobby, whose real name is Jiwon, in this album.
Before now Bobby has been strongly associated with his fierce and charismatic stage presence, incredible performance energy and high tension, hard hitting rap style.
True Bobby fans, however, have always been aware that the rapper fondly known as a Bunny within the fandom is as squishy inside as his beloved Winnie the Pooh bear!
Kim Bobby Jiwon is actually a talented and incredibly versatile rapper as well as a vocalist with an addictive vocal color and a player of multiple instruments. Though he is known more for his fiercer raps, his more emotional bars have given us some of his most unforgettable work.
Below are some threads worth exploring to find out more about Bobby’s Rap:
Following yesterday’s news regarding iKON’s importance to YG Entertainment, a chart including artists from 2012-2017 and their held concerts has been posted by nbntv.co.kr (the NBN News website).
Regarding our interest, we can already see a pretty high attendance for our boys in 2016 and respectively 2017, in the solid gray areas.
Because of this achievement, it’s only natural that iKON are expected to hold more concerts in 2018, showing the importance of their contribution to the company. The expected attendance number for iKON’s concerts for 2018 is cca. 500k to 600k.
