Watch iKON be their hilarious selves on Abema TV’s 60 minute game battle special!
iKON has released a hilarious teaser for their long anticipated iKON TV.
iKON TV is a 10 episode reality show self-produced by iKON members themselves with first episode airing on 21 of April at 10 PM KST on Naver V Live and YouTube and on 22 of April at 12.20 AM KST on JTBC.
The show will be unique as there is no script and iKON were given free creative rain to do whatever they wish, with each member participating in planning, filming or editing of episodes. We are getting pure, unadulterated iKON.
Teaser, a tongue-in-cheek homage to Korean gangster movies, was completely conceptualized by iKON members and filmed without the script ( to Donghyuk’s consternation) featuring iKON members looking like they just stepped of the pages of a gangster manhwa, a comedic one. It announces the first episode directed by iKON with special guests, comedienne group Celeb Five, that clashes with iKON as the rival gang in the hilarious teaser.
Celeb Five is a “girl group” consisting of well known comediennes Song Eun Yi, Shin Bong Sun, Kim Young Hee, Kim Shin Young, and Ahn Young Mi. Kim Hanbin is their self proclaimed biggest fan.
Anticipation for iKON TV is very high and reactions to the teaser are overwhelmingly positive. iKONICs have been waiting for this for so long and they couldn’t be happier.
Now iKONICS it is time to do what we do best and promote the hell out of iKON TV. Here are some edits done by dedicated fans that can help you promote iKON on your social media.

On the 29th March, 2018, Korean and International iKONICs mysteriously trended the hashtag #Puzutgan1stWin leaving non-fans and even many fans that were not in the know a little baffled. Here is the amusing story behind it.
On that date iKON had an unusual schedule. As a part of the events being shot for their first and highly anticipated solo reality show, iKONTV, they appeared on Korea’s popular Lotte Home Shopping Network!
There, in a “Mukbang” style broadcast the boys took on the challenge of selling extremely luxurious and high end Beef and Pork from YG’s 3Geori Butchers.The boys displayed their beagle charms, a little aegyo and ate very well indeed!
Their charm must have carried over well because before the show was over the expensive meat was all SOLD OUT!
The boys did a victory dance to celebrate and for a while it was a little chaotic!
iKONICs were reminded once again of one of the very many things we love about our boys.
Shortly after the hashtag #Puzutgan1stWin started floating around and it’s unclear wether it started with Korean or International iKONICs but soon the fandom was united in celebrating the meat sell out with this hashtag. Why?
Apparently “Puzutgan” is the romanisation of the Hangul name for 3Geori Butchers. iKONICs just decided to celebrate selling out the meat like a music show win!
A fun loving group and their fun loving fandom indeed! Here is Top Star News’ coverage of the event.
iKON has been shooting events over the last couple of days in connection with iKONTV with a speculated theme of “Part Timers”. So far they have appeared on the streets of Seoul, Campus Grounds, Aori Ramen and a Day Care Centre.
Let’s keep looking forward to iKONTV which is sure to be very interesting!
March 28th 2018 – A few days ago iKON was picked along with hip hop artists Okasian and Bryan Chase to perform at the Kenzo After Party and from all indications it was another lit iKON stage!
The French/Japanese Luxury Design house Kenzo recently opened a flag ship store in Seoul on time for Seoul Fashion Week and the after party “Kenzo loves Seoul” which was held on a party boat was to celebrate the event.

Celebrities in attendance included Seo Kangjoon, Wondergirls’ Ahn Hee and BoA.
iKON performed their mega hit song Love Scenario and the celebrity crowd sang along! They also performed Rubber Band and Bling Bling to loud cheers.
The boys represented Kenzo in floral outfits from the most recent collection.
Best of all they made new fans!
Let’s hope for more fiery iKON stages soon!
March 27, 2018 – it was supposed to be a mediocre day for everyone but iKON members did a little something out of the ordinary. They went out of the streets, campus, and surprised everyone with their kind hearts, warm radiance, and gorgeous smiles.
Ever since iKONTV was officially announced during their Re-Konnect Korea Fan Meeting, the boys of iKON have been popping up mysteriously in different parts of Seoul with film crews. Rumour has it that a theme of the long anticipated Variety Show will be iKON trying their hands out as Part – Timers. Knowing our boys we are antipating great enthusiasm, chaos and fun!
On this particular day our boys showed up unexpectedly in the streets of various school Campuses.
Let’s start off with Chanwoo – Chanwoo had a board set up in Hongdae, photos of all iKON members are posted in it and above them is a question, “Who is the member you would date for a day?” he gave colored stickers to passers-by as he casually talk to iKONICS around him. Even male iKONICS participated in the poll and the board was quickly filled with colored stickers on.
Chanwoo, crowned as the evil maknae called Yunhyeong to give him a little update and to inform him that he was losing on the poll he is conducting.
Jinhwan on the other hand also hosted a poll party, his question was, “Who was the member you want to be a friend?” the venue of his poll party is located at a University and when the news got out there was frustration for those students who happens to have no classes that day!
Seeing Jinhwan standing beside a poll giving colored stickers to students is definitely a rare and must see moment.
Junhoe wandered around the streets. He decided that he will give hugs for 10 lucky iKONICS, which he really did! He also gave some high-fives to those who are around him.
During his stay to entertain his fans – he removed his face mask while he was on the phone and all the girls just fell into his charms and simultaneously uttered, “uwaaaaa~” Again, as always, Junhoe managed to capture the hearts of the ladies (and some dudes too we can imagine).
The weather in South Korea is pretty bad; fine dust is everywhere and Hanbin, together with Yunhyeong and Donghyuk was spotted giving out masks for their dear iKONICS. With caring smiles on their face they made iKONICS’ day better despite the ugly weather.
It was a lucky day for the iKONICs who happened to be out and about that day and an indication of how real and how close iKONTV really is!
Here are some other times iKON boys have been spotted in mysterious shoots:
Wearing Mystery Uniforms:
At Seungri’s Aori Ramen:
At a Day Care Centre?:
To the iKONICs in Korea be sure to look out for our boys when you’re out and about! If you’re lucky enough to bump into them don’t forget to show both love and respect!! Good luck!

Today iKON members were spotted filming in various parts of Korea.
Bobby and Donghyuk were seen filming in Seoul in Jinhwan’s sister’s cafe Platte.
June and Jinhwan are filming in Busan .
We can only guess that Hanbin, Yunhyeong and Chanwoo are out there filming as well.
Is it for iKON TV? We certainly hope so.
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!
