Congratulations to iKON on their successful comeback!
iKon (Korean: 아이콘), stylized as iKON, is a South Korean boy band formed in 2015 by YG Entertainment, consisting of six members: Jay, Song, Bobby, DK, Ju-ne, and Chan. Originally a seven-piece band, leader B.I departed from the group in June 2019.
Initially introduced in the reality survival show WIN: Who is Next as “Team B”, the group went on to appear in the 2014 reality survival show Mix & Match, which determined the final member lineup of iKon. Their debut studio album Welcome Back (2015) debuted atop the South Korean Gaon Album Chart and featured the number-one singles “My Type”, “Apology” and “Dumb & Dumber”, as well as the top-ten singles “Rhythm Ta”, “Airplane” and “Anthem”. The album was a commercial success, selling over 260,000 copies in Asia and its individual songs selling over 4.8 million copies, leading the group to receive numerous accolades from major Asian music award shows.
From 2016 to 2017, the group released the singles “#WYD” and “New Kids: Begin”, and embarked on their first Asian tour and several Japanese tours. In 2018, their second studio album Return spawned the hit single “Love Scenario”, which topped the Gaon Digital Chart for a record-breaking six weeks. Their third EP, I Decide was released on February 6, 2020.
