iKON Begins First Schedules as Group of Six
BanSeok Shin, July 23, 2019, 10:28 a.m.
For their first time iKON will be doing their official schedule as a group of only six members. The group was seen on July 23rd, at Seoul’s Gimpo International Airport getting ready to board a flight to Tokyo, without former leader B.I. Over a month ago B.I was caught up in a drug scandal that ultimately lead to his leaving iKON, as well as the resignations of YG Entertainment founder, Yang Hyun Suk, and CEO Yang Min Suk.
iKON will be going on tour in Japan beginning with Fukuoka on July 27-28th. As B.I was the group’s leader and main songwriter it is unclear how his departure will affect the group going forward. Hopefully the group has and will recover from this and continue to be successful.
