Hello our lovely subscribers and readers! We are back to doing interviews with the talented and creative members of our fandom, and we have a real treat for you. An amazing fanartist @milkyopi whose work looks like it should live in prestigious art galleries and not just our browsers. I also have to thank our own @icelycheetea for making this interview possible.
Watch an almost half an hour long interview with the iKON boys and the hilarity that ensues. This interview was broadcasted on February 28, 2018.
– from KiST team
As we announced earlier, iKON was scheduled to be interviewed for SBS News on the streets of Hongdae today. However, due to unexpected and massive crowds, the interview sadly had to be moved indoors.
It appears that the organizers may have underestimated iKON’S ability to attract a crowd and things seemed to have gotten out of control with iKON stuck in the midst of the sea of fans.
This was an unexpected situation as we can hear iKONICs apologizing to the boys for the crowd in the videos taken by fans at the scene and boys worrying for iKONICS’ safety.
We sincerely hope no one was hurt in the crowd and it is clear that a different approach is needed from now on when iKON ventures announced on the streets of Seoul.

Love for iKON is not limited by age, we saw entire families, from grandparents to tiny little kids, attending iKON concerts in Japan and it is time to let one of those young fans say a thing or two about their love for iKON. As last for this year in our iKON fan art series we bring you the youngest iKON fanartist, Soki.
Tell us a bit about yourself?
Mom you know me.
We are doing an interview, pretend I am not your mom. Just tell me your name and stuff.
My name is Sonja, everyone calls me Soki. I am 11 years old. I go to school and I draw comics just like my dad.
How did you become an iKONIC?
Because of you.
Say a litte bit more about it.
My mom and dad listen to lot of music and I listen to it too. I like Metallica, Queens of the Stone Age and iKON. I also really, really like BIGBANG and 2ne1 since when I was a child because you listened to them.
You are still a child.
When I was a little child. I especially liked Taeyang because he looks like my dad.
He really does not (unfortunately).
He does too. I also love 2ne1 and I was really sad when you told me they broke up. Their last song was very sad and I cried. I don’t like sad songs, they make me cry. Than you started to listen to iKON and they have puppies in their videos and I like that a lot, and they love animals and Bobby is a bunny and they are very funny…
Easy there tiger, slow down. I need to write all this down.
I want to be a puppy not a tiger.
OK?! What is your favorite iKON song or a moment?
Dumb and Dumber is the best song ever but I am not allowed to play it more than five times in a row. I like also Bomb with Psy, Bobby and Hanbin but it does not have a video and that makes me sad. They should make a video and have puppies in it. Dumb and Dumber video has two puppies in it, TWO!! Also B-day!
Anything else you specially love about iKON, like something they did and said?
I like that TV show Hanbin and Jinhwan did with animals, that was the best. Bobby said he is iKONs bunny there, that was funny. You should buy me a goat.
Yes, Mari and I was great. I am not buying you a goat. We are over the goat discussion.
Then bunny, I should have a bunny and his name would be Bobby. You would like that too. Right, a bunny Bobby. I really need one.
No bunny. We have a mental cat that would give that bunny a heart attack in 5 minutes tops. No more animals in this house. You have a dog and a cat enough is enough.
…but Bobby bunny…
Ok. We can talk about it later…
Why do I have the feeling I lost all control of this interview. How did you become an iKON fanartist?
What’s a fanartist?
Someone who draws iKON like you. When did you start drawing iKON?
I’m a fanartist. Cool. I started drawing iKON when I was a child.
You are still a chil….yeah . You were 9 when you started drawing iKON OK.
Yes, when I was a child. I was not good then as I am now. I am better now at drawing.
Why did you start to draw them?
Because they are funny and I like them, and you like them, and we like them together.
I am not a baby mom, you are embarrassing.
You haven’t been doing a lot of iKON drawing lately, why is that?
I am very busy with school. You make me do all this hard work, like do my homework, brush my teeth and all that… I just don’t have time for my art. Stop laughing mom, it is really not that funny, it is sad, and it is all your fault you make me do all that homework… STOP LAUGHING!!
Ok, ok. Is there a particular member, ship or a theme you love to draw?
Why are you talking about ships? I don’t like boats. Why are you so weird?
Who in iKON do you like to draw the most?
Ohhh, Hanbin and Bobby. Bobby is Hanbin’s bunny. That is so funny, I love that. You love Bobby and Hanbin too mom, right? You have all these photos on your computer of them shirtle…
Yeah OK. We don’t need to share everything.
Also June, cause he is very funny, and Chanwoo because he is cute and has a Husky in Dumb and Dumber video, and Jinhwan because he is small, and Dong because he is pretty and Yoyo cause he cooks and is pretty too…
Is there a favorite drawing of iKON you did and why is it your favorite.
It is my drawing of iKON as My Little Pony characters. I got to give them all a beauty mark. That was fun and then your friend, made me a pencil bag out of it. She draws Jinhwan very pretty, your nice friend and made stickers too. He looks so cute and he is shorter then me.
No he is not, and yes @icelycheetea spoiled you with that bag.
Well, he will be.
I was talking mom, stop interrupting me. Than your super nice friend made me my pencil bag and I keep all my drawing stuff in it, and I took it to school and everyone was all oooooooooohhhh. You should buy me a konbat.
Wait what, no. I am not buying you a konbat so you can hit your friend in school. No, we are not discussing this again.
Konbat is all red, and pretty and shiny and he touched my pencil bag and deserves to be hit.
Konbat is not for hitting people, we had this talk before.
It looks like a bat mom, really (insert eye roll).
Do you publish your work anywhere?
You put it on that iKON place (OneHallyu) when I do something and send it to your friends. You do not let me go on line alone because you said “it is full of nasty people that want to talk to little kids and shouldn’t”. I am not a little kid but I still don’t want to talk to nasty people so you just show it to other iKONICS, OK.
Thank you for talking to me!
You are my mom , not like I can say no. Duh…
Anything to add?
iKON will come back soon (my mom said) and I hope they have more puppies in their videos or bees, I like bees and that dinosaur dance was amazing!!! waengwaeng
Enjoy more of Soki’s drawings
Oh, mommmmm I was little when I drew this, it is not good. Why are you so embarrassing.
