Bobby’s Nico Nico Live Performance Wows Viewers

iKON’s Kim Bobby thrilled fans with the first live performances of tracks from his hotly anticipated debut album, Love and Fall as part of promotions for the album’s Japan release.

Though the album was originally released in South Korea on September 14th 2017 it took till November 29th for fans to be able to see more than a single promotional stage for the album’s title tracks due to YGE choosing to skip a promotional cycle for the album which was released while iKON was still actually on an extended Dome Tour in Japan.

Bobby’s live performance of tracks from Love and Fall were broadcasted on the popular Japanese video site/web channel Nico Nico.

The live included interactions with an MC during which Bobby answered questions about the album, played games, thanked fans for coming and mysteriously asked them to anticipate iKON’s next activity.

Bobby’s stage itself was very simple featuring just the artist and a mic yet the atmosphere was full of Bobby’s excitement for a live performance and the intensity of his passion for music.

His set list included:

I love you,

Runaway,

Firework,

Swim,

Holup

Love and Fall was a surprising album for even the oldest and staunchest Bobby fans/iKONICs not just because after 3 years of waiting people had given up hope it would ever be released – but because the idol who was most famous as the young power rapper who won SMTM3 took a risk and did what no one expected by releasing a personal and heartfelt and mostly vocalist album!

Bobby sang his heart out and touched fans with the beauty and sincerity of his lyrics and the heart they revealed.

This made getting to see him perform tracks from this album even more special for fans and Bobby did not disappoint with his electric performance.

See below for the entire Nico Nico Live stage.

Bobby also performed tracks from his album today at the Nike Force Battle Event marking the first time some of these tracks have been performed live in South Korea!

It’s truly good time to be a Love and Fall fan.

Dazed Korea has released iKON’s pictorial on its Instagram for its September issue. The pictorial spread like a wildfire among iKONICS and we were stunned. Now you have to understand iKONICS, we are not used to boys being styled to look this slick, smooth and all around gorgeous. Their pictorials in Dazed so far were on the weird, unique and edgy side so it is understandable that this left us breathless.

iKON X Calvin Klein Jeans pictorial has the boys featuring Calvin Klein’s new executive director Raf Simons’s first jeans and underwear line. The photo shoot has a definite “Rebel Without a Cause ” feel, exuding a youthful and wild but still classic vibe.
