First of all, this is to all the members, especially Kim Hanbin (B.I) that I’m going to talk about.

Fyi except one of two songs that iKON received as gift, for lyrics, composition, producing, recording, album producing, sometimes until choreography are all being taken care of by Hanbin (sometimes making choreo with other members).

Beside that he also participated alot in PSY’s songs, Blackpink’s Whistle, Winner’s Empty, Epik High’s Born Hater, etc.

Hanbin at the age of 12 did his music broadcast with the name of Indian Boy together with MC Mong. And finally at 18 years he got the chance to debut under YG.

I dont know how hard it might have been for Hanbin when joining survival show. How much the pressure when his 18 year self was being told to do song producing, choreography, until recording as the leader of the group. But the debut was failed (After losing from WIN).

After that B.I was afraid of being thrown away from YG. He wrote songs all day long in the basement. He thought that he couldnt let his hard working members down. But a year later, he was shooting Mix&Match. With a new pressure of losing a member who has been training for 4-5 years, a hell like survival started.

And finally, he debuted with iKON.

Hanbin really loves and enjoys music. I can see that. His grades (as in achievements) were good right after debut but got lower after it. People see it positively now but he must have gotten a lot of pressure in front of YG. On his solo song he said ‘I wouldn’t do music if it was only for the charts’. Even though he said that, I know that he has many burdens on him. “I don’t need good achievements and I don’t have music apps on my phone” he said. Especially after the success of Love Scenario, there’ll be more burden.

I can’t even imagine the feelings of Hanbin whose hard work got recognition through song writer award and SOTY.

Rough and free but let’s go slowly and last long. 

I won’t forget that I met you guys [iKON] in my life. I’m jealous of the you who has dreams. I respect the you who tries so hard. It was difficult for me to see you struggling but it is my pleasure to see the bright you now.

Me as a human won’t stop trying. iKON, and then Hanbin, your youth is my youth, I want you to know that you have to have fun with it. We [iKONICs] will stay behind you so don’t worry about falling behind, and freely do your music. I will always support you, and congrats for today.

On the 8th of February, Naver announced that the pilot episode of MBC’s new show, ‘The Game With No Name’ (‘문제는 없다’) will feature iKON’s B.I and his sister Kim Hanbyul.

The show is said to involve a room escape puzzle where B.I and Hanbyul work together as contestants.

The article goes on to state that Hanbyul, although shy at first, showed off her skills through dance and worked well with B.I throughout the show.

iKONICS have met Hanbyul before, through her appearance briefly in ‘WIN’ and ‘Mix&Match’, as well as stories B.I has told over the years. Although, this is the first time in a long time that fans will be able to see Hanbyul and B.I together firsthand.

Director B.I strikes again with new video of iKON

iKONICs are no strangers to leader B.I’s editing skills, from his oversaturated selfie filters, to the short videos of him and the members messing about. It seems since the opening of iKON’s personal Instagram accounts, B.I now has ample opportunity for his hobby: embarrassing his members.

In his most recent post, B.I is seen filming as Yunhyeong loses a round of rock, paper, scissors, which leads to him having to bare his butt and get smacked.

The video is censored while chaos ensues, and returns for some quality editing skills from Director B.I as Yunhyeong accepts his punishment.

The video can be seen here.

 

iKON members were also enjoying the post, with member Jinhwan commenting soon after.

 

This is one of many of B.I’s works, Some videos of the same style have popped up on their shared Instagram account in the past. We hope to see many in the future!

Hanbin surprises with a feature in Yawa’s ‘Her’

Although iKON has been on a musical hiatus for a while, it seems like our leader has been working on a couple of side projects.  Earlier in the day, rapper Yawa posted a picture of himself in a place resembling Hanbin’s veranda.

Later on, speculations were made that Hanbin featured in his song called ‘Her.’ Although the song has been posted little over a month ago, the rumors only started surfacing after the news of the two being friends. The confirmation itself comes from the fact that you can hear his unmistakable voice here below, starting from 2:27.

What is even more awesome is that Yawa provides a direct download to the song. iKONICs, let’s show a bit of support, shall we?
