Watch iKON be their hilarious selves on Abema TV’s 60 minute game battle special!
March 27, 2018 – it was supposed to be a mediocre day for everyone but iKON members did a little something out of the ordinary. They went out of the streets, campus, and surprised everyone with their kind hearts, warm radiance, and gorgeous smiles.
Ever since iKONTV was officially announced during their Re-Konnect Korea Fan Meeting, the boys of iKON have been popping up mysteriously in different parts of Seoul with film crews. Rumour has it that a theme of the long anticipated Variety Show will be iKON trying their hands out as Part – Timers. Knowing our boys we are antipating great enthusiasm, chaos and fun!
On this particular day our boys showed up unexpectedly in the streets of various school Campuses.
Let’s start off with Chanwoo – Chanwoo had a board set up in Hongdae, photos of all iKON members are posted in it and above them is a question, “Who is the member you would date for a day?” he gave colored stickers to passers-by as he casually talk to iKONICS around him. Even male iKONICS participated in the poll and the board was quickly filled with colored stickers on.
Chanwoo, crowned as the evil maknae called Yunhyeong to give him a little update and to inform him that he was losing on the poll he is conducting.
Jinhwan on the other hand also hosted a poll party, his question was, “Who was the member you want to be a friend?” the venue of his poll party is located at a University and when the news got out there was frustration for those students who happens to have no classes that day!
Seeing Jinhwan standing beside a poll giving colored stickers to students is definitely a rare and must see moment.
Junhoe wandered around the streets. He decided that he will give hugs for 10 lucky iKONICS, which he really did! He also gave some high-fives to those who are around him.
During his stay to entertain his fans – he removed his face mask while he was on the phone and all the girls just fell into his charms and simultaneously uttered, “uwaaaaa~” Again, as always, Junhoe managed to capture the hearts of the ladies (and some dudes too we can imagine).
The weather in South Korea is pretty bad; fine dust is everywhere and Hanbin, together with Yunhyeong and Donghyuk was spotted giving out masks for their dear iKONICS. With caring smiles on their face they made iKONICS’ day better despite the ugly weather.
It was a lucky day for the iKONICs who happened to be out and about that day and an indication of how real and how close iKONTV really is!
Here are some other times iKON boys have been spotted in mysterious shoots:
Wearing Mystery Uniforms:
At Seungri’s Aori Ramen:
At a Day Care Centre?:
To the iKONICs in Korea be sure to look out for our boys when you’re out and about! If you’re lucky enough to bump into them don’t forget to show both love and respect!! Good luck!
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.

With iKON (Junbobyunbin)’s Knowing Brothers episode soon approaching us (8:50PM KST, Feb 3rd, 2018). We decided to get this out for you guys to get a taste of what the boys will be like on Knowing Brothers and with Seungri of Big Bang!
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.
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!
Writing ‘iKON’ and ‘varieties’, as in multiple ones, feels completely surreal and so have these past few days – intense and exhausting in the best of ways.
The general public is already loving iKON’s title track ‘Love Scenario’ and in a bit over a week Korea will watch them shine as individuals. iKON will appear in JTBS Knowing Brothers on February 3rd 8:50PM KST, and that same day Bobby will guest on MBC Semobang, at 11:45PM KST.
