5 reasons why you should watch iKON’s Weekly Idol

On 7th February, iKON’s long awaited episode of Weekly Idol finally aired. Showing not only the  warm relationship iKON members have with Doni & Coni, but they also proved how easily they adapt to a new environment to the point where it felt like it was a comedy act between friends.

With the help of iKONIC’s opinions, we’ve prepared the highlights of the broadcast that you certainly shouldn’t miss !

1. Yang Hyunsuk’s daughter chooses Donghyuk as her favorite member – for people who have watched WIN, this doesn’t come as a surprise; Yang Yoojin’s heart was stolen by our sunshine from minute one, when she whispered to her mother about the member she likes the most.  In YG’s congratulatory message on Donghyuk’s birthday, he wrote that he is his daughter’s first choice; according to Donghyuk’s confession on Weekly Idol, the two have met at a BIGBANG concert, where they shared a hug.  At the end of the segment, Donghyuk sent her a video message, saying “Let’s grab a meal soon. Thank you for liking me, and please talk to your dad so I can do a solo stage sometime”, which earned laughter from everyone in the studio.

 

2. The reason behind the mysterious disappearance of Bobby’s clothes –  the original topic started with Jinhwan and Junhoe always borrowing clothes from the piles of clothes left in Bobby’s room; however the story emerged comically once Bobby started narrating about his favorite hoodie that went missing. As he accept the idea that it was gone, a year later he sees Chanwoo’s mother wearing it. In Chanwoo’s defense, he thought the pile of clothes was to be thrown away, so he picked it from there, leading to Kony’s comment that Bobby’s room resembles a “thrift shop.”

 

3. During the segment in which iKONICS got to ask iKON to do things they asked for a performance of their song “Perfect” that was released solely in Japan while Bobby plays the guitar. Despite not knowing the chords Bobby manged  a faithful rendition of the song on the guitar with help of Hanbin’s beat boxing while vocals sang the song beautifully. Doni was so impressed with the song he asked YG to release it in Korea.

 

4. iKONICS also requested for Jinhwan’s height to be measured in mandarins. Jinhwan was a good sport and submitted himself to be measured and finally we have the answer to the question of how tall is Jinhwan? Answer is: 27 mandarins.

 

5. During the same segment they asked for Hanbin to do a cute rendition of a popular children’s song “Baby Shark”. Hanbin hates doing aegyo but he did it for iKONICS with hilarious reactions from everybody.

 

This entire episode of Weekly Idol was hilarious and well worth the watch regardless if you are a fan of iKON or not.

iKON’s “Double B” Debut as Variety Show MCs

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’s Weekly Idol appearance to be officially broadcast on February 7th!

 

In case you missed iKON’s hilarious appearance on Weekly Idol, we are more than delighted to bring you the news of their second appearance on the popular show. As it had been confirmed right before the comeback, iKON has been busy recording for Weekly Idol, and today the official confirmation was made: iKONICS, tune in on 7th of February because our boys are here with new stunts an entertaining acts.

As shown in the teaser, we will finally have the chance to see the boys dance at 2X speed to their newest song “Love Scenario.” It seems quite exhausting, as Bobby comically yells “I’m dying” through the entire sequence.  Later on, an emotional moment occurs as Jinhwan and June sing the Korean version for “Perfect” with “rich vocals” (caption: 보컬부자그룹), while Bobby accompanies them on an acoustic guitar.

Junhoe manages to steal the spotlight by showcasing his skills in nunchucks, impressing not only the MC’s but his brothers as well; Chef Song is making another appearance on TV, as he’s spotted in the corner, preparing a meal for everyone.

The most comical moment of the night is reserved for our fairy, Jinhwan; the MC’s have decided to measure his weight by adding tangerines from head to toe. Our poor mathyung, it doesn’t seem to be to his advantage at all! Last but not least, our leader “Godbin” is about to sacrifice his image once again, by showing baby shark aegyo; in the background, iKON can be heard complaining about how they are unable to watch him.

So far the preview seems pretty entertaining, right? Let’s wait together for February 7th!
