iKON Breaks Record for the Most Recorded Hours at No 1 on Melon!

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!

iKON’s Japan Come Back: Sells Out in Stores & Tops Several Charts

iKON recently cameback with a new mini album in Japan titled, New Kids: Begin on August 16, 2017. This is the Japanese edition of their single album that came out in Korea in May 22 with additional two new Japan exclusive songs, Perfect and World Wide. 

Not only do the Japanese get two brand new, heartbreaking beautiful and party anthem IMO, songs, but the promotion YGEX, YGE’s Japan division, has rolled out for iKON is a pleasant as well as welcome shock for iKONICs who have been waiting for iKON’s Japan comeback, and new songs, for a few months now.
iKON’s name and the images of the members were emblazoned along mighty LED sided trucks while the Japanese versions of the New Kids MVs were continuously played on giant LED screens high above the city’s bustling centre  from towering department stores.

On release day, music stores seemed to compete with tagging YGEX on social media with their iKON display, as if each was trying to outdo the other with how big their displays were as well as the amount of posters plastered around their stores.

Thousands of fans were able to tune in and watch a retrospective of iKON’s MVs up to the current Bling Bling and Bday ones as well as a casual interview with the boys, all in Japanese, and a creative phot opp session! Shortly after, the mini album was released with the following track list:

iKONICs were finally able to hear Perfect and Worldwide, which have been teased some weeks before. The new songs did not disappoint! Worldwide is a compulsive head bopper with a lively, retro hip hop beat that fits very well in the J-pop industry, while Perfect is a soulful R&B ballad which truly showcased iKON’s beautiful vocals and just how much of a force to reckon with iKON’s vocal line has become. 

The CDs have literally been flying off the shelves as quickly as they are stocked and iKON has already climbed to number 1 on Tower Music charts.
