iKON’s official instagram account WithiKONIC released an image of Bobby today and in doing so finished the hashtag series: IsThisBeauty/LookReal that was kicked off on December 28th 2017 with a lovely picture of iKON maknae Jung Chanwoo seated in a Diner style couch gazing intently into his phone.
That picture was followed by mathyung Kim Jinhwan sending a finger heart and a flirtatious look from what looks like a changing room.
After this came Hyung line’s Song Yunhyeong with another finger heart but with a passionate feel.
Leader, Kim Hanbin saluted us next after a successful day of shooting.
At this point the series was interrupted by a behind the scenes shot from the MV set where the boys sit gathered together and chatting in their habitual way, giving off a warm feeling.
Then the series continued with the next maknae line member, Kim Donghyuk cutely nibbling on some kimbab.
Koo Junhoe rounds up the maknae line after this, also staring intently into his phone in a hard to identify location.
The recently rather elusive Kim Bobby, face half hidden with a hand sign was the final image.
iKONICs still have NO idea what the hashtag means (a song title? A refrain? A red herring?) but we wonder if we will finally be getting the much anticipated announcement of a Come Back date for the boys.
Till then we search the images for clues!
All we can say so far is that all images feature a soft aesthetic which is most probably a characeristic of the MV that they filmed. The boys are either dressed in boyfriend looks or heavily covered under quilted coats. They are also predominantly located at the “Diner/Cafe” setting so we have reason to believe the MV will definitely feature such a set.
Other clues we have received have come via VLive including Donghyuk providing a very tiny spoiler and Junhoe describing the MV as something similar to a “Musical.” Aside from these there was a heavily filtered image from what appears to be the MV Shoot posted on mouthpiece of YG, Yang Hyun Suk’s instagram.
The general aesthetic of the set and their looks combined with these clues that have been dropped have led iKONICs to speculate that the MV that was shot will either be a ballad or a mid-tempo track. This is exciting news for iKONICs as fandom favourites tend to fall under these categories.
Lets all hope the wait won’t be for too much longer for a Come Back date announcement and details along with the rolling out of a promotion cycle plan starting with Come Back Teasers.
