After the massive success of iKON’s Love Scenario, iKON’s haters start attacking iKON and call them a ‘one-hit wonder.’ Are they?
This might surprise new K-pop fans but Love Scenario is not iKON’s first ever hit song.
As an answer to all iKON’s haters, iKON is not a one-hit wonder.
iKON’s Love Scenario is just one of the successful songs of iKON and is the second song from them that marked history in Korea.
The first song from iKON that became a massive, huge hit in South Korea is “My Type.”
My Type is one of iKON’s debut songs in 2015.
Despite being a debut song, it already achieved Certified All Kill and has been #1 in all music charts for 6 consecutive days.
iKON is the first K-pop group in the new generation to achieve a Certified All-Kill with their song “My Type.”
My Type charted for 48 weeks on Melon 100. Also, My Type is one of the boy groups’ songs which achieved 1 million downloads along with Bigbang, Exo, Winner, and Block B.
It has been a huge success that almost everyone in Korea knows the entire song and couldn’t stop singing to it even up until today. Men, women, teenagers, young adults, and even adults, loved the song and is one of the most unforgettable hit songs in Korea.
The massive success of My Type made iKON won Song of the Year for the month of September at the Gaon Music Awards just months after their debut.
Also, with My Type’s massive success, iKON became a “monster rookie” as they won Best New Male Artists on all year-end award shows which made iKON the second K-pop group in history to get a Grand Rookie Slam. The first K-pop group is SHINee.
- November 7th 2015 MelOn Music Awards as “Best New Artist”
- December 2nd 2015 Mnet Asia Music Awards as “Best New Male Artist”
- January 14th 2016 Seoul Music Award as “New Artist Award”
- January 20th 2016 Golden Disk Awards as “New Artist Award”
- February 17th 2016 Gaon Charts K-pop Awards as “New Artist of the Year” and also “Song of the Month – September: My Type.”
After the massive success of iKON’s My Type, people wondered if they’d be able to make another hit song again.
Aside from My Type, other iKON songs that became really huge in Korea is Dumb and Dumber where they won triple crown despite being a rookie, Rhythm Ta, Apology, and more.
iKON’s “My Type” and “Apology,” hit No. 3 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales during iKON’s debut era.
And then after two years since iKON’s debut, iKON’s “Love Scenario” was released on the 25th of January, 2018.
It surpassed the massive success of My Type and iKON’s Love Scenario has set the bar really high with 204 Perfect All Kills.
iKON’s Love Scenario became one of the most successful Korean songs in the history of Korean’s music industry.
The biggest question is, will there be another hit song that could achieve same success as iKON’s Love Scenario where a song is equally loved by both men and women, sang by people from all ages—toddlers, kids,teenagers, young adults, adults, and even grandparents, could surpass the 204 Perfect All Kills which no one has ever done before in the history of Korean music industry, and could chart #1 for more than 43 days on all Korean music charts?
That’s something to look forward in the next few years!
In their recent comebacks, iKON’s Killing Me and Goodbye Road was also a huge hit. iKON’s Killing Me made iKON achieve the #2 position on Billboard‘s World Digital Song Sales chart upon Killing Me’s debut.
Both Killing Me and Goodbye Road won awards on music shows where the latter earned 6 awards from music shows.
Meanwhile for iKON’s The Final series, iKON’s “I’m Ok” was reported to be trending in many countries and even trended in European countries like Belgium, Russia, United Kingdom, and more, which rarely happen to iKON’s songs.
Now, 6 days since it’s release, iKON’s “I’m Ok” is still trending in many countries all around the world.
iKON’s won’t be promoting “I’m Ok” on music shows as per requested by iKON’s leader, B.i, ever before the release of the song.
He’d rather focus on iKON’s new album which will be released anytime soon.
Are you excited for iKON’s new album? For now, let’s support iKON’s “I’m Ok” and find out why people all around the world can’t stop talking about the genius lyrics of iKON’s “I’m Ok.”
