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.
The Dance Practice Video for the fan gift single, Rubber Band is here and as usual DanceKON delivers!
The boys are smooth and slick with their formations in a choreography that has them elongating moves and bouncing low. The choreo is cleverly reflective – just as the lyrics are – of the feeling of being stretched and released like a Rubber Band!
No matter how many times we see them dance iKON always impresses! One is filled with questions like when did they even learn the choreo for a song they only recently finished recording? How long must they have practiced? How amazing are they?
We are looking forward to finding out who the choreographer behind these smooth, stretchy moves is! Until then don’t forget to like and share the video!
Update: iKON will kick off Rubber Band promotions from Sunday, March 11th on Inkigayo!

Today was the last stage for Love Scenario on Inkigayo. Love Scenario really knows how to make an exit as the last stage brought to iKON it’s 8th music show trophy and a triple crown.
Triple crown is achieved when a song has three consecutive wins on a music show. This is the second triple crown in iKONS career, previously they won it on M Countdown with Dumb and Dumber.
This is the last nomination on Inkigayo for Love Scenario as per SBS rules after getting the triple crown song is no longer eligible to be nominated.
While Love Scenario is still topping the charts in Korea, iKON will continue their promotions with the new digital single Rubber Band coming out at 6PM KST on Monday.

iKONICs will be happy to see that the members of the genius collaboration that gave us “Love Scenario”are also involved with the new track which is called “Rubber Band.”
According to YGE front man Yang Hyun Suk and iKON’s leader Kim Hanbin, the track is to be seen as a gift to fans and an opportunity to spend more time with our boys!
Are you looking forward to the surprise track?
iKON is still topping all major Korean charts 37 days after dropping Love Scenario and just recorded their 160th hourly Perfect All Kill! AND their 6th Music Show Win on KBS Music Bank (LoveScenario6thWin) (Its getting difficult to keep up with the achievements they come in literally as we type) Incredible!
UPDATE: 165th Perfect All Kill (we are gonna take a break from counting for now! Phew!)
You’ve heard it before- iKON’s latest title track, ‘Love Scenario’, is topping charts, breaking records, and has been called a megahit. Over a month later, the scenery doesn’t look much different.
On March 1st at 12PM KST, Gaon updated their weekly charts with rankings from February 18th to the 24th. Here’s where iKON currently stands:
— Digital chart: Love Scenario #1 | 55,581,306 points
— Download chart: Love Scenario #2
— Streaming chart: Love Scenario #1
— BGM chart: Love Scenario #6
— Mobile chart: Love Scenario #2
— Album chart: Return #4
— Karaoke chart: Love Scenario #3
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!
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!
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.
As iKONICs, we’ll need to get our full gear ready again for the upcoming release: you can check our tutorials here to find out how you can help.
Let’s do our best for iKON and enjoy the music and more of our best boys above anything else!
