Korean pop boy band iKON is set to visit Australia’s shores at the end of next month, so join the hype and discover who they are!
iKON recently made their comeback with title track ‘Killing Me‘ and mini album ‘New Kids: Continue‘. Fans have been super eager for their comeback since their hit song ‘Love Scenario‘ was released earlier this year.
WHO ARE THESE GORGEOUS BOYS?
iKON debuted in September 2015 under YG entertainment. In 2014, they were first introduced in the reality survival program “WIN: Who Is Next” as “Team B”. After they lost, Team B went on to appear in the 2014 Mix & Match which determined the seven final members of iKON consisting of B.I, Bobby, Jinhwan, Ju-ne , Donghyuk, Yunhyeong and Chanwoo. The group released their debut studio album “Welcome Back” in 2015 with “My Type” and “Rhythm Ta” as lead singles. The group leader B.I is also the producer of the album. The album was commercially a success which lead the group to win several best new artist awards from major awards in Asia, including: Mnet Asian Music Awards, Japan Record Awards and QQ Music Awards.

In 2016 the group held their first Asia tour “iKONCERT 2016: Showtime Tour" which took place across South East Asian countries. It was a huge success and it earned them recognition on an international level and gained them many more fans.
Because of iKON’s abilities and skills, they have often been hailed as “the successors of BIGBANG”. B.I and Bobby are producers and songwriters as well as singers, and have worked and trained under YG for a long time. Bobby has also entered a TV show for rappers, “Show Me the Money", and won, making him the youngest winner at 18. From time to time they are seen as rivals to their label mate “WINNER” who won the show “WIN: Who is next”.
