YG Entertainment has confirmed iKON as the next group to come out following BIGBANG!
According to a music industry insider on June 17, the agency has recently decided to release iKON for their official debut around the time that BIGBANG wraps up their ‘MADE’ comeback project this September.
This source stated, “iKON has made over 50 songs in preparation for their official debut. iKON will take their first step into the music industry by officially releasing their debut track as early as the end of August.”
On June 17, a representative of YGE shared, “iKON has their debut ahead of them in late-August. While the exact time frame is subject to change, it will not happen later than the second half of this year.”
Despite not having made their formal debut yet, iKON has gathered a large following of fans and has already earned much recognition.
The finalized seven members of the group were determined through Mnet’s survival program “MIX & MATCH” last year, and since then, member Bobby has made his name known through his appearance on rap competition “Show Me the Money 3.”
