iKON releases the first lyric narration video for Goodbye Road

On the heels of  the track list release for the New Kids: the Final mini album, iKON released the first lyric narration video for Goodbye Road featuring Jinhwan and Donghyuk looking pensive and gorgeous. We can look forward to videos of other members  revealing more about the song.

You can enjoy the video with English subtitles on iKON YouTube Chanel.

Jinhwan: “If you’re going to leave anyway, live the best possible life with no regrets. Leave me and live happily.”

Donghyuk: “Everyone goes through a break up so let’s not be too sad. I’ll try to find someone that is alike but not quite similar to you.”

Looking at lyrics it seems that non-toxic breakup songs are becoming iKON’s signature. Love comes to an end but there is no blaming of the person that left, accepting the end of love as part of life and growing up. A healthy message for sure.

This is the third comeback for iKON in 2018 but it is already a standout by the quality and timeliness of its teasers. iKON is present in the media and on variety shows prior to the release itself and not 10 days to two weeks after its release (if at all) , which was the usual practice before. One has to be blind not to notice the difference in the approach to iKON promotions and the quality of the same. We do not know what happened to bring about this change but we sure welcome it.




Jinhwan is breathtaking in his indivudual teaser


The amazing individual teasers just keep coming. Here is Jinwan looking breathtaking with his green tinted hair.

We have four down and three more to go and I cannot wait to see the rest.


iKON members filming for iKON TV?

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.

10 ‘Just Jinhwan’ Things for #SexyJinhwanDay

Happy Jinhwan Day! To celebrate iKON’s lead vocal, eldest hyung, fake maknae, Kim Jinhwan, here’s a listicle of the top ten things that make Jinhwan worth celebrating


1. His work ethic.

Jinhwan is the type of guy to put 200% into everything he does. Whether it be dance, singing, performing, jiujitsu, practicing guitar or even playing Overwatch, he’s a man with passion and pride in his work. Throughout every challenge thrown at him, even in the WIN and Mix&Match days, Jinhwan has worked hard with all of his blood, sweat (lots of sweat) and tears.

iKON takes over Instagram

Today, after the Music Core performance iKONICS were treated to a surprise to beat all surprises.

All iKON members opened public Instagram accounts at the same time and proceeded to bomb the Instagram with photos, videos and comments trying very hard to make up for the last two years of radio silence.

iKONICS used to scarce and slow updates were completely shocked and overwhelmed with the sudden influx of content.

Not even a day after opening their accounts all the members have over 200 000 followers.

Here are all of their accounts so you can follow them if you haven’t already but be warned June will blow up your notifications.

iKON: RETURN Jinhwan and Junhwe teasers are out

We got a lot of new things in a very short span of time. Let’s get right into it.


The first thing I noticed, apart from Jinhwan’s gorgeous face, was his voice. It’s an amazing voice, we know this, but there was something new about it. It sounded fuller, even smoother than usual and the falsetto was flawless. Hanbin truly wasn’t kidding when he said they all improved, and Junhwe was not the exception, keep scrolling to see Junhwe’s teasers!

As always, don’t forget to check out all the official videos, like, comment, share and stream.

Junhwe was stunning and truly refreshing. As a power vocal, he takes care of the impact, the shock along with his characteristic roughness, but this time his voice was mixed with something else. It had the deep tones he’s so known in iKON for, but instead of roughness he sounded silky smooth and relaxed. So far we’ve only seen two member teasers, but I’m pretty sure the change in his singing in this album will be the particularly interesting.

2nd Anniversary Chill and Vlive with iKON

SC Cr: Indigo Radio

On Sept 15th, iKON celebrated their 2nd Anniversary by warmly meeting with fans via V Live.

Despite having flown into Japan that day followed by a long bus ride to Nagano, the venue for the Concert scheduled for the next day, the boys made a concerted and much appreciated effort to appear before fans on their special day.

The boys couldn’t quite disguise their travel fatigue and Bobby who just released his solo debut album the day before was still en route to Japan and so wasn’t present. Despite it all the boys showed a cheerful spirit and teased each other a lot.

If you are a long time fan of iKON you know that wether their broadcast is a hyper one or a chill one there are certain staples you can expect:

– A Flow of Consciousness discussion style

– Dragging each other

– Teasing one member or the other

– Digressing


– A LOT of helpless giggling/laughing

– Unconscious affectionate moments

– Candidness

– General silliness

– The feeling of being part of a group of childhood friends

This is iKON’s style and their great charm.

The highlights of iKON’s 2nd Anniversary Greeting included:

– Congratulating Bobby on his album, and Donghyuk singing an excerpt from ‘Secret’.

– Yunhyeong’s skin condition since returning from the Jungle (not great😂)

– Chanwoo’s low participation rate in group activities and shyness at bath houses (to get them to stop teasing him he had to threaten to expose them all😆)

– Hanbin’s favorite song in Bobby’s album is “Swim” but when iKON sang it it turned into a song about Yunhyeong’s beard?

– Donghyuk shows his 7 piercings which represent iKON 

– Jinhwan brings up taking things slow and lasting long and Hanbin let’s us know that this is also his principle for pooping

– The boys talk about their iKON rings: only Junhoe and Dong are wearing theirs and the rest give their excuses😅

– Junhoe’s knowledge of members birthdays is tested: he only remembers Dong’s but members praise him because his margin of error has greatly reduced

– The boys express wishes to be with iKONICs for thousands or even millions of years and hold concerts in heaven😂
They rounded up their VApp so they could have an even more intimate one with fans on their Plus Channel.

You can watch this 2nd Anniversary broadcast on their regular channel with Eng subs now.


iKON held two Concerts in Nagano yesterday and are scheduled to hold 3 fan meetings in Osaka tomorrow.

Bobby participated in both Concerts then flew back to South Korea for pre recordings for his Inkigayo stage. When done he will rejoin the rest of iKON for the Osaka fan meets tomorrow (please take care, Bobby!)

We wish the boys love, good health, success and prosperity going forward in all their various activities.

Happy Konn2versary❤️

iKON FAN ART – Thalia, a fan artist with a slight Junhwan obsession

ikon meeu

More glorious fan art coming your way and this time the wonderful artist is versatile Thalia @H0EBABY! Thalia can go from adorable chibi illustrations to breathtakingly beautiful realistic work. But best thing would be to let Thalia tell you about herself.

First things first. How did you become an iKONIC?

I knew Bobby and B.I from SMTM, yeah I’m a big fan of K-hiphop back then. And it was months before iKON debut and I wasn’t into Kpop. One of my friends showed me a funny clip from Mix & Match (she said they were funny and that I’m going to like them) and she was right, I couldn’t stop watching it. They were so hilarious and it made me want to watch them more and more. That is the first time iKON hooked me. And it continued until now haha. They are hilarious.

I couldn’t agree more, they are a funny lot. Do you have a favorite iKON song or a moment?

For songs, absolutely Climax and Long Time No See, because both have deep meaning. I cried a lot during iKONCERT when they were performing these songs. For Climax, okay who doesn’t love and get emotional when it comes to Climax? No one I bet lol. For Long Time No See, I fell for the lyrics. It feels like they were thanking us for waiting. Even though they were gone for a long time, they promised us that they’re coming back so we don’t need to worry. It’s my healing song every time I feel down, every time I miss the boys.

Other than Climax and LTNS, it’s Friends (they sang it on The Remix), I don’t know why but I just love it so much. The remix between Friends and Canon is gooooodd! Also they infused classical music into dance.

I loved the Remix and “Friends” performance was meaningful in so many ways, as it represented iKON and their relationship so well. So, tell us how did you become an iKON fan artist?

I drew iKON a lot but I didn’t call myself “iKON fan artist” back then because I did it for my college assignment only (used iKON as my inspiration lol). Months before iKONCERT, I was wondering what to give for freebies on the D-Day (the iKONCERT), and I decided to try making chibi sticker (first time lol) and yeah it was the start. I enjoy drawing iKON and I think it became a habit now haha.


Is art something you do just as a hobby or are you a professional artist?

It wasn’t my hobby and I’m not a professional artist either. Since I’m majoring in art and design (and I couldn’t draw and got no sense in art), my college forced me to lol. But it’s kind of a hobby now.

jinhwan realism 2

Yeah, I think you can no longer say that you cannot draw. What inspires your fan art?

iKON? Yeah I think they’re my one and only inspiration since I began to love drawing because of them. (I didn’t enjoy drawing back then, hated it a lot lol). And my fan art comes mostly from the real things they did.

junhwan v app

Is there a particular member, ship or a theme you love to draw?

I draw all iKON members but since I’m a Junhwan shipper/trash I draw Junhwan the most. They’re both cute ;-;

junhwan cultwo

What is your favourite technique/medium to work in?

Mine is digital. Since I suck at doing manual, so let me just do digital haha. I usually use Adobe Photoshop and SAI to draw (both realism and chibi). Maybe I’ll start learning manual soon haha.

june realism 2

You get a lot of reaction and feedback for your work from other fans. Was there anything someone said that stayed with you as special?

When they said that they love my art so much and or using it as his wallpaper and else. Oh I’ve done a prank once (it was during April Mop) that I’m going to stop drawing and close my account. And the feedbacks were sweet (why people are so sweet, I’m weak ;-;). They gave me motivation to keep drawing ;-; I love y’all.

And fan art helps me make new friends! With the same hobby (drawing iKON) I met lots of cool fan artist out there.

I think everyone loves fan art and fan artist, I never saw anything negative ever said under a fan art post.

Yesss! It’s because iKONICS are sweet, aren’t they?! The sweetest fam I’ve ever met!

We love you too! Is there any particular illustration or comic you drew that is special to you and that you would like to share with us? Tell us why is it special?


Ok this is a collab art but this is the special one for me. It’s the first time (some of) Indonesian iKON fan artists collaborated together (I drew Hanbin). Glad to know that iKON has many talented and lovely fan artists!

That is amazing! You guys are like a cool clique. Was your art ever used without your permission or plagiarized? How do you prevent things like that from happening?

Yes. They were selling my art without permission. I asked them to take it down and they did (gladly).

Your art has reached iKON members or people close to them, thus giving you the satisfaction of reaching your idol in a way most of fans can only dream off. How did that make you feel?

without hwangssabu


I (once) drew Junhwan doing jiujitsu and tagged Hwangssabu-nim on Instagram. I don’t expect any respond from him but he did comment on my drawing “where is me?” lol. So I made another fan art including him on it. He liked my drawing and used it as his display picture. It was so unreal for me and of course I was excited. Few days after he noticed my drawing withikonic (Junhwan) posted a selca with Hwangssabu-nim in their jiujitsu outfit. I draw it once again (well since I’m Junhwan shipper, i always draw anything related Junhwan), tagged Hwangssabu-nim again. And he did repost it and used it as his DP once again. It was (once again) unreal, It’s the most amazing feel I’ve ever felt and I feel thankful to him.

with hwangssabu

You have a fan in Hwangssabu for sure. Have you ever thought of making fan merchandise using your art or publishing it? And if you did, tell us where we can get our hands on it.

I sold many things lol. The first one is notebook. Actually I made the notebook for my personal use only but people were asking how to buy it so, yep it was the start from me (selling lots of stuff lol). I sold key chain before (attached the photo), and going to release one soon. Here’s the preview (attached the photo). Please wait for it, I’m going to release it soon on my twitter @H0EBABY or simply click bit.ly/h0ebaby (shameless promotion lol)

going to sell this soonkeychain

That was Thalia, one with a direct link to Hwangssabu’s fan art loving heart. There is still more to come to quote the immortal worlds of Bobby “It ain’t over yet!”. Now enjoy more of Thalia’s fan art.
