YOYO’S BACK!

iKONICs rejoice as previews from Fansite Masters confirmed the good news that Song Yunhyeong has safely returned to us from the wilds of Fiji, New Zealand!

Yunhyeong left for New Zealand 5 days ago on August 21st to embark on his debut solo Variety appearance as part of the cast of SBS’ Law of the Jungle!

His activities have been a mystery since then but as iKON (minus Bobby who flew in from LA) who are scheduled to perform at A Nation today, left South Korea for Japan without him yesterday, fans wondered if they would have to perform without their high note specialist.

Fans were profoundly relieved when he finally showed up at Hanada Airport looking a little tired and slimmer but safe and sound!

We do hope he will get a chance to rest a little before climbing A Nation’s famous stage later today.

Thank you to the hardworking and passionate Fansite Masters that captured his return for us.

Welcome Back, Yoyo!

iKONICs, who have taken to referring to the relationship as “OneBin”, have been watching over their friendship closely since Jaewon mentioned and included Hanbin on one of his first promotional radio broadcasts.  It was revealed then, to the delight of fans,  that Hanbin addresses Jaewon without honorifics but simply and affectionately as, “Jaewonnie.”

In the midst of all the excitement, twitter user, @BBkings5 made a post about hoping to see interactions between the two friendly rappers using images where they appear to be twinning in cute head dresses from fans.
