New Kids Repackage Album: “I’m Ok”

At last the details for iKON’s repackaged album have been released by YG Entertainment!

The repackage album comes with a new release title track called “I’m Ok” which is as the fandom expected since the boys have been obliging enough to spoil it for us weeks ago!

The “I’m Ok” announcement was accompanied by a moody and grainy black and white poster featuring the boys in suits posed around a black vintage car and giving off an extremely classy feel. The gorgeousness of the boys have iKONICs asking themselves if they are, in fact, indeed ok.

Interestingly, seeing that the image is located in a tunnel answered one of this year’s fandom mysteries concerning a missing MV with scenes from a tunnel based off posts made by Donghyuk in March. Actually the boys must have been pretty anxious to share this track and MV as they have been providing us with spoilers for months!

Are You Ready to Run Away with Bobby?

YG Entertainment released the posters for Kim Bobby’s 2nd title track, “Runaway” and it hit us right in the feels!

Two days ago YGE dropped the teaser posters for the 1st title track from Bobby’s 1st Solo Album, “Love and Fall.” At that time iKONICs and the Kpop community in general were taken by surprise by the teaser’s soft imagery and the title of the song, “I Love You.”

Today’s posters shows imagery of Bobby on a beach with ruffled hair and casual clothes, his face in sharp profile against a moody sky. They are probably some of the most aesthetically pleasing posters YGE has ever released in relation to iKON and iKONICs are thrilled!

Even more importantly, this second teaser along with the first one and the album name are further indications that we are going to be seeing a more personal and emotional side of Bobby, whose real name is Jiwon, in this album.

Before now Bobby has been strongly associated with his fierce and charismatic stage presence, incredible performance energy and high tension, hard hitting rap style. 

True Bobby fans, however, have always been aware that the rapper fondly known as a Bunny within the fandom is as squishy inside as his beloved Winnie the Pooh bear!

Kim Bobby Jiwon is actually a talented and incredibly versatile rapper as well as a vocalist with an addictive vocal color and a player of multiple instruments. Though he is known more for his fiercer raps, his more emotional bars have given us some of his most unforgettable work.
