iKON members B.I and Bobby will be appearing on their very first variety show through an upcoming episode of “Running Man”, and before the episode even aired, news is already being released on how they had impressed everyone during their recording session! Both of the iKON members stood out and blew the cast away with their fashion and awesome dance moves. The Christmas special will be airing on December 20th, and the concept for the episode will be emulating SBS’ “X Man”.
The guests will include both stars from “X Man”, as well as today’s popular and current stars. B.I and Bobby were said to have been nervous about their first variety show appearance, but they arrived in full confidence and swagger, and others even tried to copy their style. In the dance showcase for the show, they won over viewers easily with their talent.
iKON is a South Korean boy band formed in 2015 by YG Entertainment. The group's seven members are B.I, Bobby, Kim Jinhwan, Koo Junhoe, Song Yunhyeong, Kim Donghyuk and Jung Chanwoo. According to YG CEO Yang Hyun Suk, the "C" in "ICON" was replaced with a "K" because he wanted them to become an 'icon' for Korea.
Although iKON made their official debut in 2015, the members were well known as Team B pre-debut due to the survival shows "Win: Who Is Next" which was aired in 2013 and "Mix & Match" which was aired in 2014. The group made their official Korean debut on 1 October 2015 through their Debut Half Album - Welcome Back digital release and made their first debut broadcast on 4 October 2015 on SBS's Inkigayo.
