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 the 15th of September 2015 through the digital release of their first single "My Type" from their first studio album Welcome Back and made their first debut broadcast on the 4th of October 2015 on SBS's Inkigayo.
