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!
