iKON had a successful comeback yesterday with the release of the Goodbye Road MV and New Kids: The Final mini album at 6PM KST.
(Don’t forget to stream the MV! Our goal is 6M views in 24 hours.)
As for Korea, Goodbye Road debuted comfortably in top #21 of all major charts, raising quickly and steadily every hour until the charts froze at 1AM, achieving #4 on Naver and #1 on all other charts, getting incredibly close to scoring a Realtime All Kill.
With the strike of midnight in Korea iKON’s final D-day poster was released announcing that in less than 18 hours iKON will release their new mini album New Kids: the Final thus concluding the New Kids series.
It is more than fitting that iKON is concluding their New Kids series looking all grown up and mature.
This is iKON’s third comeback this year which is not unusual for kpop but it is more than unusual for YGE. After going through drought years this is the year of plenty for both iKON and iKONICS.
Let’s work hard and enjoy this comeback with iKON!!!
iKON released performance video teaser for their upcoming title song Goodbye Road.
The teaser drenched in muted colors focuses on Chanwoo, Donghyuk and Yunhyeong both visually and vocally giving us a taste of the song that leaves us craving for more. Dancing is softer as it befits the song and in signature style of song choreographers Kinjaz who have previously worked with iKON on Love Scenario and Killing Me.
As we are approaching the end of the best teasing period iKONICS have ever experienced it is up to us to do the most with it. To help iKON’s visibility in preparation for Monday release please like and watch the teaser on Naver.
