IKON (iKonic)- LOVE SCENARIO

IKON burst into our lives with the show-stopping album Welcome Back in 2015, featuring three singles that became number one on the charts. That album sold over 4 million songs and won multiple awards.
In three years, which saw a debut in Japan, IKON has been nominated for almost every award in the Kpop genre and won many, including Asian Most Popular Korean Group in China Music Awards (2016).
Made up of 7 talented good-looking young men, IKON was formed in 2014, from two music reality shows – Who Is Next and Mix & Match. The YG Entertainment group released its second album Return in January 2018, with the main track Love Scenario already topping the charts.
